Pye Corner Audio – Stasis

pye-corner-audio-stasis

Pye Corner Audio is the solo project of British electronic artist Martin Jenkins, who has been amassing a wealth of adventurous, darkly weird material over the past half decade. I discovered him via the Sleep Games LP a couple years ago while searching for perfect music to listen to at work.

What I’m Into This Week (8/14 – 8/20)

Seefeel 1993

I haven’t posted a weekly update in a while, so it’s about time. A lot happened, but I’ll stick to the highlights.

I hung out in wine country, biked about 500 miles, and finally saw my Japanese metal superheroes Boris in concert. Then I found myself on an extended deep dive into all the 60s jazz that I skipped over in the past. This total immersion is resulting in another evolution of taste.

patten – Sonne

patten - phi

patten is about to release an album I didn’t realize I was excited for until I listened to Sonne and caught that hot feeling, a dumbstruck “this is why I love this artist” blush. I’m happy, I’m hyped, and now I’m impatient.

What I’m Into This Week (7/10 – 7/16)

Sideways Paul Giamatti Thomas Hayden Church Beach

Lately I’ve had to remind myself that, in the long run, art has always said more about humanity than the news ever has.

This is one idea that’s helping keep me sane and clearheaded as 2016 rolls on. It’s also something that motivates and inspires me. Let’s see what else helped this week.

Ghost Drive [mixtape]

GHOST DRIVE2

It’s the summer of 2016 and I’ve felt more energized than I have in years. In addition to writing more frequently than ever, I’ve rediscovered my passion for mixing and recontextualizing music.

I make mixtapes that I’d want to listen to, sharing music the way I hear it. This one is a night drive for future ghosts.

Aphex Twin – CIRKLON3 [Колхозная mix]

Aphex Twin - CIRKLON3

Aphex Twin has released the first single off his upcoming Cheetah EP and it’s… well it’s fantastic. This is par for the course, considering the high quality of work he’s been dropping since returning to the world in 2014 with the monumental Syro.

The video is a whole new experience for fans, though. Watch the weirdly psychedelic clip here:

Boards of Canada – Dayvan Cowboy

Boards of Canada

I’ve been a fan of Boards of Canada for almost 20 years now. Ever since being introduced to much of the Warp catalogue by coworkers at Circuit City in high school, I’ve considered this mysterious duo to be one of those bedrock favorites, the kind of group that I’m always happy to hear.

While I consider 2002’s Geogaddi to be their true masterpiece, beating out landmark debut Music Has The Right To Children by an avant-garde hair, it wasn’t until much later that they had any sort of official visual accompaniment to their music. When they dropped The Campfire Headphase in 2005, Boards of Canada finally released their first music video.
