We've returned from a lovely few days of grazing our way around London with the US branch of the family - and a fine old time was had by all. Back at HQ there is much catching up to be done - posts to be read, music to be heard and, yes, a new laptop to be unwrapped and understood. This could take a while.
Nestling in my in-box upon my return was
'Drumside Part 1' by Rodinia, an extract from
a new LP, 'Drumside/Dreamside', due for
release on Now-Again Records in late
September. Rodinia is a collaboration between
multi-instumentalists, Jay Whitefield (who I
know best from his work with Karl Hector &
The Malcouns) and Johannes Schleiermacher
from the Woima Collective. They're tagging
the music they make 'Ambient Krautrock' - and
why not? I like this preview a lot and I'm looking
forward to hearing the whole thing.
