Zoviet:France / Jim O'Rourke / The Hafler Trio - Unentitled

ZF's track is the gem here, and O'Rourke's the least satisfying. But that's how it usually goes for me. Don't get me wrong, I like O'Rourke's work, but I'm never absolutely stunned by anything he does. His hurdy gurdy stuff was nice...anyway, I digress. Some good abstract ambient here.


Lord Finesse - From the Crates to the Files

I chose this for the beat quality. I almost put up a Dr. Who Dat for the same purpose (maybe later) but I figured some good MC'in at the same time would do you all good too. This guy is a legend and a master in his own time. I'm not extremely versed in his discography but I love the beats on this one more than any of the others I've heard.


Tropa Macaca - Marfim

Syncopated lo-fi INDUSTRIAL, yes INDUSTRIAL from PORTUGAL, yes sunny PORTUGAL. Tropical industrial. Yes it happened. Ok so it's not entirely tropical, but I suppose it could euh, theoretically, euh technically, euh maybe maybe not be a little more danceable than say...oh...early TG. In any case I was really taken by this and it doesn't require much time to suck you and entrance you. Just get it and you'll see what I mean.

For all the HC/Metal I listen to, Lord Finesse/D.I.T.C. crew always does it for just as much. Good selection of stuff here on your blog - added your link as well - thanks...

You might find this interesting.

We refer to it as "Analog Music from a Lost World" — previously unreleased post-punk experimental rock from 1981, unlike anything else recorded before or after.

"This is amazing stuff and we would be honored to feature it in wfmu's curated portal on the free music archive. I'm very sorry for our slow response, we have a lot of stuff to wade through to find gems like these."
