It's been a busy month of May: LA, DC for Radiohead (lawn seats in a downpour), Tokyo, Montreal for Mutek, and a quick breather in North Carolina.
Stay tuned for some photos when I get them downloaded from my loaner N95, as well as a Mutek writeup I contributed to in Earplug. There's also an interview with The Mole in the works.
In the meantime, Mr. Sherburne has a good writeup of the festival, which was incredibly good this year.
My personal highlights were Kode9/Spaceape, Chic Miniature, Flying Lotus, Fennesz and Tim Hecker. Unfortunately the Radio Slave set wasn't what I had hoped it would be, but was still great nonetheless.
Here are some things I've enjoyed over the past month:
Klimek- Dedications (wow)
Spiritualized- Songs in A&E
Nicola Ratti- From the Desert Came Saltwater
The Mole- As High as the Sky
Muting the Noise (Innervisions Comp)
John Tejada- Where
I've also been revisiting the Cinematic Orchestra's back catalog as well as Root 70's Heaps Dub.
