By my own standards this is a show with a darker tone as usual (although it isn’t really dark), e. g. there’s a trend to distortion sounds, anyway, you could still dance to it most of the time. Also it is the first episode with a commercial break (you know why).

I have nearly nothing to say to this month episode, just: it’s full of Harps & Trumpets, a Scotsman is swearing on Italopop, we have Jazz, maybe some kind of a Koto (Japanese zither) and maybe this on drugs and there’s even more, but I’m just to lazy to talk about… As every month I just hope you have fun with it. (You can leave a comment if or if not.)

Edit: I just see that I’ve made one mistake in this episode, not really a mistake, but I want to correct: although the one netlabel has a .ca domain, it’s based in Louisville, Kentucky, USA.

Machtdose Podcast June 2007 (click to stream)

Unfortunately I’ve had a serious computer crash last week, so I haven’t found the time to produce an episode. This is the reason why I’m presenting my favorite tracks of this month just as a list of mp3’s, you can listen to them all by clicking the link above or through the player below (of course the mp3-links in the list are also playable, so you can listen to them track-by-track too).

However, here’s the list like every month:

  1. Luisa Mandou Um Beijo (A Regueifa)Amarelinha (2:30)
  2. The HomensUh, Uh, Uuhhh (3:07)
  3. The Bird Ensemble (Lost Children)Part I, Number 4 (6:15)
  4. The Oslo Deadtrash Project (tripostalLala (4:46)
  5. It’s a musicalTake off Your T-shirt (4:08)
  6. Lucrecia (Series Media)Counting backwards (4:37)
  7. Tristan Linton (KONKORD)Picture + The Lens (4:37)
  8. Re’sequence (electrosound. ru)Detective (3:47)
  9. Gabriel (Archaic Horizon Records)Good Old Days (4:13)
  10. herzog (12rec. net)here come our fathers (3:49)
  11. Letna (standard KLIK music)Vida (3:14)
  12. All about Max (Muertepop)My wallet got stolen (5:04)
  13. Chromatic Flights (monotonik)A Cold Drift By The Reef (5:29)
  14. Danzai (aciendo)Sleeper (4:28)
  15. Ture Sventon (Tropic)Mörker (Jeff Bennett Remix) (6:37)
  16. Marcexl (MXL)Listen to me (8:45)
  17. Francky Ride (Valiza Tools)Minus (4:30)
  18. Profi Bros (upitup. com)L.A. Gears (3:44)
  19. Yan Ots (diggarama .com)Aliham (5:58)

Just a few words: I’ve started with the excellent Luisa Mandou Um Beijo from Brasil – a band often associated with Belle & Sebastian, it reminds me also to Chumbawamba and Stereolab. If you follow the link to the netlabel site you will get an excellent album which is in heavy rotation here! I took notice of them through the fabulous compilation Share It Spread It Love It – Vol. 1 by open culture site Metawelle. The second track by the Homens, a nice Sixties-sounding-flick, is directly taken from it.

Also an interesting compilation series is made by Silent Ballet with a focus on post-rock, so is third track by the Bird Ensemble.

We then have a pop section: The Oslo Deadtrash Project has released a three-track ep on Tripostal, which is the netlabel site of the Belgian independent label Carte Postal, „It’s a musical“ is the new supergroup of everybody’s darling Bobby Baby and Robot (Lady Boy). Don’t miss their first concert on July 3rd at Hotel Bar, Berlin! Next one is Lucrecia, also a lovely album on Series Media, second time appearance of this netlabel here at Machtdose after we’ve already played a track of them last month.

Now comes the Lounge part: Tristan Linton has made a remarkable album, realeased on Konkord.org – a complete new netlabel for me from Austria. Don’t miss the album it has a lot of surprises – which is not typical for the „downtempo“ genre. Always a good place for extraordinary music is electrosound.ru, one of the most mentioned labels in the Machtdose Podcast, this time we have something by Re’sequence – and it may sound a bit redundant, but again!: another album worth to listen to all tracks. (In fact this month we REALLY have a bunch of good ep’s, not only single tracks.)

The Sound effect of this month: „Children playing on a backyard“ – you have some kind of it in all of the following three tracks by Gabriel, herzog and Letna – they form the more relaxing part of the tracklist, also the next ones by All about Max, (again: excellent ep!) and Chromatic Flights.

At the end – as always – the more „classic netlabel genre“ which means minimal / technoid sounding tracks: Danzai, Ture Sventon, Marcexl and Francky Ride, then the Profi Bros doin‘ it à la Daft Punk. The list is closed by the tribal house of Yan Ots (celebrating the first anniversary of netlabel diggirama.com).

That’s it! Sorry for the missing moderation this month. (I’m not sure what it means for the Podcast subscribers to get only a M3U list – maybe you can give me a short feedback- Hey, I like feedback in general!).

Podcast May 2007

Deep is the new Minimal (or so). However, this one goes to all the slackers out there: Although we start with some hiphopesque & sweet accoustic guitars the main part of this month episode is a warm, comfortable ride through Melowness – perfect for a nice doze (but at the end you’ll feel fresh & awake, promise)
