Yup, back in June – still from the car though. Someday i’ll set up my equipment and do a show with music and all like I used to do!! Giving you updates on me, cutting the cord via Kodi, and crazyness in Florida!
Today I bunked off work in the afternoon and went to the degree show at ECA. I moaned during the podcast that it wasn’t as good as the last couple of years… but as I think about it now I reckon I was a bit unfair. There was lots of interesting work on display – I’ll have to pop back before the show finishes this weekend. Anyway, this photo was taken from the balcony in the main hall. That chap down there was singing Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely”. Quite why he was singing one of the worst Stevie Wonder songs I’m not entirely sure. I didn’t want to venture nearer and find out.
On the podcast itself… Well, it was rather swiftly curtailed. I’d planned for a 45 minute long show, but it turned out the new streaming service I was using only had 30 minutes left (after I’d been testing it for 30 minutes before the show). So this is a short episode. Apologies!

The first track ‘Always’ struck a deeper chord here on first listen, its moodier and slowly unfolding beauty reminding us of favorites vocalists out here in LA, notably the haunting ballads of Elliott Smith or our old friend Nico Stai. The only short-falling is that we wished it just didn’t end, clocking in under 3 minutes and leaving us heading back for another few deep listens.Always HypeMachine

Cowboy Cantor, a excelência da música independente.
This album is a beautifully constructed acoustic album. Album opener ‘The City Who Forgot’ is filled with soft, smooth guitar picking and Robbie’s warm, whispered and hypnotic vocals and sets the perfect tone for the rest of the release. The album’s title reflects on various events Robbie has experienced over the years and the emotions he has had to come to terms with, expressed effortlessly through intricate guitar trills and luscious harmonies.
Robbie apparently has plans for a UK tour in the near future. Until that time comes you can pick up and explore the new album, available now via Home Recording.

Martinibomb are a duo from Portland, Oregon who have been realeasing some very creative songs for at least the last five or more years, as we recall always being inspired by their sampling while listening to a variety of shows and digging through the Internet stacks. The page at the FMA claims Martinibomb enjoy cobbling odd songs together from vinyl records, tin cans, sticks and chewing gum, as well as enjoying reading books, collecting records, brewing sake, and watching obscure films.
Check out the links below and be amazed as their efforts are always very inspired. For example check out the newest effort embedded below, a short sample of the video for “Death Ray Samba” their new release on vinyl. More info on this can also be found via their Facebook page.Dizzy ke Peche HypeMachine
Sleeper, Secret Friend’s second self-produced album set to release August 14th, melds psychedelic ambiance and electronica with soft layers of acoustic pop melodies. Blue Sky inspires a dream like state of mind further illustrated throughout Secret Friend’s upcoming album.
The podcast returns after a short vacation to New York City! Today’s rambling tales cover such subject matter as lactose intolerant sickness and the playgrounds of NYC.
Also, many apologies if you attempted to listen to this show live. Dodgy internet issues plagued the show, and the web connection seemed to give out halfway through. Hopefully the recording will be fine. I must sort this out before attempting another live show.
Music-wise, it’s definitely got a bit of a Brooklyn vibe, with tracks from Las Lanas, The Planes, Toby Goodshank and more.

LA musician Daniel Finfer’s inspiration for blending accelerating technologies with music may sound familiar to many of you. Five years ago, he was struck by how few pop songs really had a meaningful message, and at the same time he was reading Ray Kurzweil’s The Singularity is Near.
Finfer got the idea for creating songs that explored the themes of the Singularity under the guise of pop music. While his lyrics may sound like they are a stereotypical exploration of love, romance, and youthful bravado, they are actually “a conversation between my future and present selves, I’m sort of talking back and forth through time.”You in the Future HypeMachine
