    All hail the synth!

    Resident Advisor have an article on YMO's Haruomi Hosono. https://www.residentadvisor.net/features/3287?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=GlobalNewsletter-1808.3 Love this piece, created as ambient shopping music.

    A movie watchers blog

    Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring (extended edition). I've seen bits and bobs of the trilogy on TV in recent years, but I don't think I've sat and watched a whole film since they were released on dvd. I was hooked from start to finish. Pretty much everything about it was great. Looking forward to watching the extended cuts of the other two films next. 4.5/5

    Great scenes in disappointing movies

    Interesting topic. As a music lover first and foremost, the move to digital has seen me listen to full albums less and various tracks on shuffle more. Only recently was I wondering if movie lovers watch individual scenes much? If so, do you have them ripped as a scene or do you skip through the file/disc? Or perhaps you just stream clips on YouTube?

    Best New Music of 2018

    Interesting new LP from DJRum. A strange mixture of ambient electronics, post-dubstep bass, flourishes of jungle rhythms and solo piano. Sex and Blue Violet stood out.

    We Want Your Soul

    Found another great George Duke album. Dream On from 1982 has so many good tracks it's not worth recommending any in particular.

    Does anybody know of any informative videos about how roms are created in the first place? It's obviously more work than just ripping a cd or dvd with your pc.

    I've been enjoying the Kamasi Washington album today. Some really great tracks throughout. Not listened to The Choice yet. Thanks to those who recommended it.

    The Techno Thread

    Good luck with the night. We have an old Electro thread here. Feel free to bump it with some recommendations, I've not heard much new stuff lately.

    New Dam-Funk single is good. Mr.Fingers/Joe Smooth inspired deep house.

    Fellow Norwegian cosmonaut Prins Thomas has made a record with jazz pianist Bugge Wesseltoft. It's a nice mix of krautrock and jazz fusion, with plenty of noodles.

    Great CD Revival

    I love a charity shop dig, but 90% of the stock wherever I go is the same mainstream rock/pop albums and dance compilations, so it's little surprise that they sell slowly. Rarely do I find much that's of interest to me. Oxfam is probably the best but you pay a premium for anything half decent. I'd take a punt on anything vaguely interesting looking for 50p a pop. This week I bought Japanese classical albums from the 80s and some Latin Jazz comps.

    Great CD Revival

    CD will have its revival, but not for a couple more decades. CDs are still widely available new (in Supermarkets and HMV etc.) and used (in charity shops and online). Also, there are millions of releases on the format, many of which I imagine would be exclusive. Vinyl was dying in the 90s and now it's picked right up again. And if cassette can make a comeback, CD definitely can. Saying that, I've had a Spotify sub for the past 6 weeks and haven't played a CD at all in that time. Still bought a few though

    Some good stuff on the new Bjorn Torske LP. Clean Air and Chord Control are my faves.
