    How about some;

    PLOrk Beat Science (PBS) is an electro-acoustic structured improvisation for 1 flute, 2 humans, 5 laptops, 5 pressure-sensitive finger drum pads, and 30 audio channels distributed among 5 hemispherical speakers. (their words not mine)

    here File under Ambient or just listen

    and don't forget to check out where they draw their inspiration from Tabla Beat Science, not done a bad CD and love the live in San Fransisco one.

    Don\'t own a hi-fi, just some electromechanical stuff for playing music.

    Sitting in a restaurant in Henley In Arden last Thursday evening, heard these 2 guys discussing a new name to me, B C Camplight, "Googled him" on Saturday, to find that he had performed only 11 miles away from where i live on the Friday as part of his European tour.

    He reveals his influences as Brian Wilson (good enough for me!) and Burt Bacharach amongst others.
    I spend far too much time in these forums.

    I bought Detours by the band Grace on vinyl a couple of days ago on the recommendation of a colleague at work who knows one of the producers well. Highly recommended!

    It has a Snow Patrol/Coldplay type feel to it.

    Do to others as you would have them do to you. (Luke 6:31)

    From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” (Matthew 4:17)

    I have to admit most of what I have bought in recent months has been from the usual suspects, Robert Plant & Alison/Raising Sand, Herbie Hancock/River - The Joni Letters, Floratone (Bill Frisell band). Soooo, no great new discoveries but I always hope.

    Just discovered "Cake" - Relsy was kind enough to email me a couple of mp3s.

    hard to describe, but I'd put it in a pigeon-hole close to B-52s.

    more when I've heard more

    Remember Cake in the early/mid nineties. Never bought any of their stuff cos I was too into Juliana Hatfield Three. Try "become what you are". Excellent album IMO.

    Have you been done?
    20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon

    Dengue Fever - Venus on Earth

    Cross-cultural blend of styles ranging from surf rock to lounge music to some far eastern styles with a Cambodian singer singing mostly in her native language and a few English lyrics mixed in. The album starts off with a lot of energy before settling back into a more laid back listen. Good use of horns mixed in throughout and one of the more unique albums I've heard lately. I'm sure this will see plenty of service.

    This one sounds good now in the winter time. But, I'm thinking it will be just perfect once summmer rolls around to play on a hot sticky night.
