The number of reviews to asynchronic has reached a point that I thought it was worth a post to acknowledge the positive support the album has received so far. I have been updating these on the original post, but thought I could highlight them here.
The first review of asynchronic was posted over at My Little Bubble. Check it out and then have a look around one of my favorite blogs.
As a firm believer in the wisdom of the random shuffle on my iPod, I thought I would share with you the background music it selected for tonight's State of the Union address. There was no cheating...I just hit play.
Get Together by Tony Allen Afrika FreaK Out by Barney Willen Yene Filagote by Tiahoun Gessesse Stretcher Case Baby by The Damned The Crying of Lot G by Yo La Tengo Pastoral Cha Cha by Syzygys Dirty Blue Gene by Captain Beefheart Onya Wanjah Go by [unknown Afrofunk artist] Memento by Ennio Morricone The Winter Ray by Natural Snow Buildings O Rio by Dom Salvador e a Abolicao If You Want To Do Ya Dub by Prince Far I All My People Right Here Right Now by Oasis I Don't Live Today by Jimi Hendrix And things are mostly Ghosts by Her Space Holiday Gratitude by Beastie Boys Song For My Lady by Malinga 5 Tena In Love by Ras Michael & The Sons Of Negus
The Malinga 5 was particularly well timed with an almost Gil Scott Heron vibe...and I can't believe it opened with that track off of that particular Tony Allen album. Actually, the song titles work pretty well for his main points throughout now that I look back. Note: Keeping with blog policy, since I didn't have a hand in recording any of these, I am not posting the mp3's... just the titles. You can always use this as an excuse to explore older posts. There's plenty to hear around here.
While I am updating, I (again) want to send out a thanks for all the positive responses I have been getting for aboombong, asynchronic. It is only through your positive word of mouth that a no-budget project like this can hope to find its audience. Keep spreading the word.
I should have a solution to the broken cassette deck soon, so I will be posting some of the oldest tapes yet in the coming weeks....sort of the roots of aboombong.
This is just a quick note to pass along some aboombong news. The response to the latest,asynchronic,has been really great. Keep spreading the word. Aboombong and Fez Dispenser are working on a remix project that will be out later this year on Skin & Barrel Music. And I am currently working with DUSTdevil & Crow on some tracks for their latest project. If you haven't heard their last one, check it out here. One-half of DUSTdevil & Crow, bendle, has just put his latest up on bandcamp for your listening pleasure...check it out below.
