Einstürzende Neubauten - Haus Der Luege

Where is connection between Nick Cave and Blixa Bargeld? Probably, same primitive instinct. If you listen to the first few Bad Seed albums, you can notice strong influence of tribal music, psychedelic and repetitive rhythms all over. They are a collective that travels incontinently to peak. And todays post? Same thing. On the other side, this record sounds very modern, and for me, this is kind of dance music, which bring us back to the already mentioned tribal sound, so simple in form and so rich in giving.
So, if you are caveman, like Blixa, Cave and I, let's dance :)

The Raincoast - Odyshape

It's not easy to say something clever for huge bite like this. It sounds like ambiental reggae, it's very minimalistic and full of sophisticated melodies, but in the same time is very, very complex LP, little bit nervous and sometimes uncontrolled. It's made by four woman, well, considering attributes in sentence before, and if we think that artists give themselfs through their art, i'm little bit closer to the solution of a mystery why i always have problems with females :) Ok, this is half a joke, but truth is, here is fantastic band before you. So, don't waste your time anymore, just imagine that you have new raincoat and outside is nice rainy day :)

The Band Of Blacky Ranchette - Still Lookin' Good to Me

I always liked this kind of music, which blur line between alternative and classic sound. I mean, country music is very classical music genre and here we can find some first-rate songs. But, this is Howe Gelb's record, there is no straight line here, and in the last song there is verse: "You are too beautiful to fit in any magazine". And with that sentence, as for me, he said all...

Bootsy Collins - Stretchin' Out in Bootsy's Rubber Band

What you can say about Bootsy. He played bass in James Brown band in time when late JB invented Funk, helping him to create it. Then he moved to Parliament \ Funkadelic, most imaginative and probably best Funk band ever. In middle of that he started solo carrier and prove himself like one of main players in '70. Do you remember big world hit of the nineties "Groove Is in the Heart"? Guess who play bass there? So, Bootsy created history and i don't see any sense to miss that part. But you shouldn't think about history, just play it loud and feel the groove  :)

Tuxedomoon - Divine

I'm sitting here, it's almost midnight and i'm trying to do my homework for tomorrow. But, somehow, i'm very tired, my mind wanders around and i'm completely lost in this dramatic and sometimes hard to swallow peaces. And, if for some reason you need a similar kind of escape, i'm glad I could help.
Also, there is whole concept behind this LP, but, like i said, i'm too tired now :) Anyway, the knowledge is not always necessary for enjoyment.

Tom Tom Club - Downtown Rockers EP

Maybe they live in past, but in the other hand, their past is ingenious. And if you live in past, that's your present, right? Conclusion - They have great time on this world, and that is exactly what you can hear on this excellent EP.

Nearly God / Tricky - Nearly God

I saw Tricky twice. First time, in year 1997, and i remember it was very strong concert, it was almost rock, based heavily on bass playing. Before that concert, i heard rumours that Tricky wanted heavy metal group "Prong" for opening act, well, i didn't saw any connection here. After concert my conclusion was that Tricky just wanted to blow up some, by reputation, heavier band, and he did it succesfully. Second time, it was year 2010, and it was 100% disaster :) Band was playing sloppy, Tricky wasn't interested at all, and main sound creator was keyboardist who played some boring prog rock phrases, it was his concert all the way. I looked half concert and dissapeared into the night life of my capital city. So, what to expect from Tricky live? I don't know, after all his name is Tricky, but i'm not sure how i like that kind of  character :)
But, i'm not nobody's  judge, and his records always varied from great to good, and sometimes they're really blow my mind. And this particulary record, "Nearly God", is something i'm really enjoyed, very dark and slow, with some kind of sticky athmosphere, like shadow record of his first LP " Maxinequaye".
So, just stop think, wait after midnight hours and dive deep, strange and murky world waiting for you down there :)
