Big Blood – Operate Spaceship Earth Properly

bigblood2

So, this time that Bandcamp are doing their thing where they waive their fee, I’ve decided to buy this Big Blood album, and one of their others.

You all know how I feel about Big Blood. It’s helped by the fact that I discovered them at the time they were on a real roll creatively, the time of Unlikely Mothers, which contains one of the greatest pieces of recorded music, ever.

Operate Spaceship Earth Properly has them doing that sound again, which they hadn’t done since then. It is therefore my favourite thing I’ve heard this year, because them doing this sound is them pushing all of my buttons simultaneously. This music is orgasmically good.

When Bandcamp do this thing again next month, I think I’m a-gonna get the recent Follakzoid album, which I had wanted today but… Big Blood, though!

Big Blood – Deep Maine

Big Blood return with a rather mellower offering than usual, but one still infused with their specialist production techniques (Caleb has the fortune to possess synesthesia).

I’ve just finished reading Last Call by Tim Powers. It’s another best book I’ve ever read. I’ve lost count of how many best books I’ve ever read, but they’re all the best, and no mistake.

The Jaymo migrated away from the Republic of Newsletters into the blogosphere – or maybe returned? – but has many ideas worth looking into.

from the aformentioned Republic, I recommend Kneeling Bus.

You’ve been hankering for a blog that specialises in a picture/poetry mix? Or maybe you didn’t know you’d had that hankering.
