This week I am listening to …


laibach - revisited

Laibach | Revisited

Early work re-mixed and re-packagegd (literally in one sense). This is the early 1980s band when Laibach/Ljubljana was the capital city in the Slovenian republic of Yugoslavia. Industrial, electronic, revolutionary/counter-revolutionary. []


brasses for the massesDžambo Aguševi Orchestra | Brasses for the Masses

One rainy September night in Ljubljana we were staying in an Air BnB in Congress Square and I heard for the first time the sound of Balkan brass band music. I have been a fam ever since.Sometimes Balkan brass band music can be pretty rough. Sometimes very well orchastrated and performed. This is of the latter category. From Northern Macedonia. Just fun.

Moonlight Benjamin SimidoMoonlight Benjamin | Simido

“The powerful and original fusion between the Caribbean voodoo melodies and rhythms, and the 70’s US blues rock; the shock between Moonlight’s powerful and rebellious voice and the tension of saturated guitars … the voodoo trance in a new and explosive style!” []


gindbrasGinebras | Dame 10:36 Minutos

This is the most fun I have had since the lockdown began. There is even a song with a La, la, la, chorus/brige! It’s an ep that lasts 10 minutes and thirty-six seconds. It is uplifting and light and reminds me of the first time I heard the Undertones or The Beatles. Do yourself a favour – take 10 minutes and 36 seconds over this. []
