Here and Now – excerpt from New Album by DaveGraham
The Talented Dave Graham has dropped a little sample of his latest work. Let’s allow him to tell the story: “This is an excerpt from a new track – a very long track!,” he said. “I’ve put up seven or so minutes here, but the whole song is waaaay longer. This part is neither the beginning nor the end!
“The album it is from is dealing with a persons place in history. We are all descended from chains of living creatures stretching back millions of years. What does it mean to be part of that chain? Does it make us a vital link or a spare part? Who were the people and animals in our chain? What lurks in our deep memory? What did our ancient predecessors make of life? How did our chain survive? How come we are so closely linked yet feel so disconnected?
In some strange way we must, deep down, know where we can from…and what we are.
“There will be more previews coming up soon, and to get the low down you can sign up to my newsletter at http://www.musiclikeplanets.co.uk/
The Crane, aka Stephen Hedley, who has been on both 64:1 and 64:4 has put out a rather dapper ep via Bandcamp.
It’s a collection of ambient/glitchy tracks which he made in the summer .
He explains: “It’s the first time I’ve deliberately tried creating several pieces with a similar feel and sound palette.
“The idea was to do a lot of tracks without any ‘proper’ beats in, as they’re always the weakest point in my productions. I didn’t think there was any theme to it, but when I came to the point of gathering the tracks together I noticed that a lot of the track titles obliquely refer to a girl-related heartbreak scenario which took up a lot of my headspace while I was writing the music.”
The big poof.
He continues: “That accounts for the somewhat melancholy vibe and the (rotten) punning title. I hope people enjoy it, anyway. “

So, I’m following the haps of Killer Tomato, and on his blog there is a link to a all aged ranged disco-aloo session. If you’re chowing down at a Noodle Box restaurant some time soon, you might hear it.
It’s kinda like 60 minutes of super high energy hooks you’ll have heard many times before but in a slightly different shaped box. Much like dem noodle boxes styled to look rather good actually… on second look.
Killer said: ” I was recently approached by a nationwide Noodle bar chain ‘Noodle Box’ and asked to create a series of limited edition promotional mixes to aid their recent marketing campaign. Each month an exclusive mix cd will be available online and from participating restaurants.”

So rather than helping the homeless, instead of doing lollipop man duties, the British male often finds himself hanging out on his Argos sofa, flat Fanta in hand wasting time mocking this internet classic. Where a poor man, whose only crime is having the poor fore sight not to look where he sits, is cruelly ridiculed by a young rufferain.
