Melodic Randomiser: Day nine…

01 Jan


A happy new year to you all, regular readers and new followers alike.

Today has been a lazy day, festivity fatigue setting in and no urge to do anything other than slob around listening to music, so I have a full selection of randomness to divert your attention from the resolutions that you’re already regretting.
So before you go for a run, finish that DIY you’ve been promising to get done, or begin your new healthy juice diet, sit back and listen to a few tunes.

First CD this morning was Orbital with the imaginatively-titled “Blue Album”, a slightly more down-tempo offering than some of their output and therefore a good one to wake up to…

…after which there was a quick burst of shoegazing, with an EP by Emetrex called The Birds Your Brothers, found in a local independent record shop’s sale rack.

Next up, a project that my cousin was involved with, Two Lone Swordsmen and their “…from the Double Gone Chapel” CD, a sleazy, dark throb of an album featuring some of his great drum work.
Here’s a taste –

It would be hard to come up with a more striking juxtaposition to that than Tina Weymouth and her band, Tom Tom Club (joyful 1981 offshoot of Talking Heads, with whom she plays bass)

…although the segue from that to today’s final choice was equally unlikely, “Mothership”, the greatest hits collection from heavy metal gods, Led Zeppelin.

And if you can’t find something to float your musical boat amongst that lot, then I shall just have to try harder.

Enjoy the start of 2015, I have a feeling you haven’t seen the last of my CD randomiser…

    Happy New Year, Dale! I especially enjoyed Orbital-Transient, very cool, I’m saving that one. Two Lone Swordsmen did have great drum work. The video was not available for the Tina Weymouth one but I could hear it, it was good. I always like Led Zeppelin and that was a good pick!

      Thanks Lil, I’ve enjoyed doing this series and may well return to it periodically. Happy New Year to you too.
