Default ...where we listen to a tape

ok so i m gonna play you a tape.
but not just like that, cause that would be boring.
i ll write some things about the songs.
so it ll also be like a radio transmission.
when i get to the middle i ll put an edit right here and link to the whole tape so you can listen to it. or maybe i ll do that in the end we ll see.

of course anyone is welcome to comment on the songs,sayings or whatever else he wants....
if i (and at least 1 more person) like this we can do it all over again..

i got a tape-pilot but i m bored to play you that one right now. so i ll start with another one which consists of things that got out in 2018. not a best of, just some songs i liked and i think kinda fit together.
and it starts like that:

Courtney Barnett is one of the really interesting artists of the last 3-4 years.
she already has 3 solid albums out and although if i had to rate them then this years would be third, its also, with its quality, an assurement that the girl is here to stay. i choose its opening track as tape opener

https://courtneybarnett.bandcamp.com...hopefulessness

i ll put bandcamp links whenever they re available. if you prefer youtube say so and i might reconsider.. they have the advantage that you can hear it without leaving the page, i understand but i like bandcamp a lot better.

i was introduced to Julia Holter's music reading an article in the wire magazine (which is usually too eclectic/experimental for my taste but which i also hold in high regard) and listening 2013's loud city song. Its a good+ to great album. its also best listened to as a whole. 2018's aviary is almost as good in my opinion. as the aforementioned, its one unit and its hard to remove a track and put it on a tape. theres one exception: whether. that was the track i was gonna put but then i changed my mind......twice
here are all three with the last one beeing the one i used.

around december i got a mini-mania of reading year-end lists and listening to records. one of the good stuff i discovered (second time i mention the wire) was the Sons of Kemet. i know nothing else about this group but i will be following them. (p.e one of their members got a new album out last month (link))

so here's the 3d track of the tape:

Wire has been the best music magazine for at least a decade.

Ty segall is a swell guy, saw him play live a couple years ago and i had a great time. i cant find a reason for him to have recorded 15394 albums. i heard 3 maybe 4 of them including 2018's goblins. there were like 3-4 tracks i could play you from there, i choose this one cause i think it mixed nice with sons of kemet's.

I have the Bandcamp app and prefer it to youtube unless there’s something very interesting about the video.

agreed.
most of the stuff it covers i cant listen, i mean i cant even finish the record
on the other hand i discovered things there i probably wouldnt in any other way.
they are dead serious about the way they treat music and that is so apparent in there.i love that. i used to buy it like 1-2 times a year in the mid 00's. i would even now if i could find it easily but that is not the case where i live..

I just meant in general. I subscribed to Wire for a while but itís too expensive for me. I still read their free content, and listen to their AOTY list and every month I check their cover and look into any musician Iím not familiar with. My only complaint about their writing is they started branching out too far into beat orientated electronic music at the expense of free jazz.

Another reason I cut my subscription is their downloadable Under the Radar music content isnít downloadable on my phone and I donít have or even want a computer. And **** a free CD. I donít want anymore hard copies of anything. If they had a digital subscription service that worked entirely on my phone including all their UTR stuff with a convenient player Iíd probably get back on board. What they really need is a really bad ass app.

Actually I quit dealing with LEO Records for similar reasons. They refuse to make it convenient. Now I basically live with whatever gets put on Bandcamp and Spotify. I know Iím missing stuff but itís still way more than I can listen to anyway.
