Entertainment for the Braindead : SUN

I love Entertainment for the Braindead (aka Julia Kotowski). Years back I discovered one of her early albums, put out by Aaahh Records on Jamendo and her work has, over the years, consistently featured in my musical rotation. My favourites have shifted, over time, most recently to Trivialities  but prior to that I’d have been hard pressed to pick between Roadkill and Hypersomnia. Even as my musical fixations have shifted though my love for her work has remained.

Lyrically heavy, poignant and beautiful – musically delicate, perfectly formed and variably haunting, striking and serene every new release from EftB has offered up something that catches me.

SUN is no exception so I’ve no hesitation in recommending it. Take it as a starting point rather than just a quick listen though, there’s a lot more in her catalogue worth hearing.

Dry Land by Baydog

 

Been a while since I’ve done any sonic squirrelling but as I’m laid up with a cold today I took a random nose dive into the ‘newest’ section of Bandcamp. It’s always a joy once you spend the time to do it and there’s inevitably something good to be found if you poke around enough, like Dry Land by Baydog. Very cool Jazz/Electronic stuff, smooth as silk too – a good immersive listen on a miserable day. Grab it here.
