George (Joji) Hirota – Sahasurara, some of the best japanese fusion jazz
Great new album by Michael Silver, the Canadian electronic musician aka CFCF.
That saxophone. Period.
Transfer Station Blue by Michael Shrieve, Kevin Shrieve and Klaus Schulze, a time travel straight from 1984 to 2090.
“This mixtape was compiled for a friend from afar during his summer -our winter- and for a potentially epic music festival he never attended, hours from the city, deep within the bush and with hardly any gsm reception.
A spiritual roadtrip far from the sea through the rocky woods to purge the troubled mind, douse off the summer heat with some cleansing crystal water from the other end of the world immersing the senses in the clarity of the purified soul, away from the lights, under a hateless night sky”.

The new album of Dean Blunt was released on May 1st and the last four days plays on repeat. As a dear friend of mine with extremely high MQ (meaning Musical Quotient in my world) said: “It’s fucked up -melancholic and reflective though – not exactly good social music. This guy is a serious stoner”.
This is my current mood
Four Tet shared this the other day at his official FB page and I came across the tune that could loop in eternity.
“A frozen in time piano played by the hands of Robert Smith (The Cure) and a hauntingly beautiful cello by Steven Severin, always leaves me with a hopeful, fuzzy aftertaste every single time. The echoing piano, the fainting violin on the background and the slow camera rotation focusing on everything in the room (flowers, hands, faces, strings), catching your eyes with its amazing details, left me standing, waiting for something unknown, something alive, someone”.
