OFFICE SOUNDINGS #1
First instalment of the new procrastinatory series (?) of what we listened to/trolled each other with at KRAK HQs. Upskirt cumbias, wheezing improvisations, prepared banjo licks,
Barn Sour - Belgian Gelding
As if the sound of coughing hadn't already traumatized the global populace, someone just had to go and make a tape this sick in every way possible.
Los Hijos del Sol - Cariñito
NOT THE LATINA'S IDEA & everyone in the office could hum the lyrics.
Jacken Elswyth - Banjo With The Sound of its Own Making
Beautiful and very literal sounds by this London improviser behind the Betwixt & Between tape series. The title of the record is exactly what it is and some of us are already thinking of ways to plan a show in a wood-building atelier 🤠
HASHTAGA - Flowers EP
Dylan's had a rough week(end) ❤️ Monday's recovery tunes are for strengthening out the heart's BPM no doubt.
Mind/Body/Split - Black Sea Swamp
For the muck of post-weekend survivalism: Australian "super nutty plunderophonics" of the Rik Rue persuasion, dark and melty like the Monday wormhole.
Grykë Pyje - The Fantastic World of Grykë Pyje
Beautiful and frankly epic co-release between Nonlocal Research and Mappa where a world of nature and fantasy is spun by the wondrous minds of Jani Harvonen and Johannes Schebler (must be why he did not come to KRAAK fest this year)
De Puta Madre - TechnikStonic
Pauwel: "Please don't put that in there. Wait, is that TechnikStonic? Man, you don't know how many times I've listened to this."
Freddie Gibbs - Close Your Eyes
Tim: "Pass me the jack, I need some Freddie to get me through this admin hell."
SPEAKING OF TIM, IT'S HIS BIRTHDAY (almost)
