Rare groove

In a rare event, last seen back in May (I think), I treated myself to two CDs today. One, obtained second-hand for the princely sum of £2.99, is Land of the Lost by Greyboy – definitely suitable for dinner parties in polite company (assuming said company has good taste, of course) or, as we did this evening, for listening to whilst flopping on the sofa. The second, obtained from my favourite record store in Brighton (Edge World Records, for those in the know), is Seasonally Affective, a retrospective by Piano Magic – they wonderfully describe their music as "romantic and square", which is a fair description of tracks like The Sharpest Knife In The Drawer but doesn’t really cover the bleeps and bloops of For Engineers AA. Recommended.

I *so* need to get back into listening to music properly.

EDIT: you know, I can’t help but think that someone like Vaughan would enjoy music that is "romantic and square". Particularly a track that had a title like "I am the Sub-Librarian".

  1. Vaughan already does enjoy it. A bit. I have some Piano Magic in my collection – although not that CD. I picked up on them because for a long time they eulogised the wonderful early 90s sampladelia of Disco Inferno, who were utterly stunning and years ahead of their time.
