Seems we’re playing some real throwbacks today. And bands that want to sound like throwbacks (looking at you Giuda and Eternal Tapestry). Which is a good thing if it means that sifty psychedelia and Krautrock is making a welcome resurgence (not that it’s ever really gone away).
If you want a really good sifty psychedelic time then be sure to have a peep below at Shacklock Meth Party‘s dirty video for “This Is My Shit, Gwen”.
Thank you Claps and Guilt Ridden Pop – no idea how you came across us but we’re glad you did and we hope you don’t mind our loosely calling you an updated Minimal Wave band.
Whilst we’re on the subject of Minimal Wave, still no news on when or if any material from our favourite band of that period, Lufthansa Terminal, will be released but lots of information on the record label itself over at Dangerous Minds.
And that’s not the only correspondence we got this week.
Adam Macaulay of the Brighton, England duo Curxes emailed us about the painstakingly hand-crafted video that Roberta Fidora made for their new single “Haunted Gold”. Love the stonking beat and belting vocals. Modern cabaret disco at its very best! See the video below…
It really could end in tears, or more likely, Phil Collins. That’s right, Fraserhead has the studio to himself today while The Herb Whisperer does some advance scouting for the Laneway Festival in Auckland (so that we can better stalk M83).
The Joint is a weekly radio show broadcasting every Saturday 12pm-2pm (NZT) on the music nerd internet music platform 8K in Christchurch, New Zealand.
The Herb Whisperer and Fraserhead like playing super dope selections of cosmic disco, French electro, tragic indie, hiphop, house, dub(step), nu-Krautrock, and the occasional guilty pleasure, all interspersed with dashes of bitter cynicism.
Basically, if the radio sounds broken chances are it will be us.
