With his fourth album, Rodney Smith continues the expansion of his aural horizons. Where Awfully Deep was just that - and featured an intense bout of soul searching bordering on the macabre - Slime & Reason takes in a broader spectrum of emotions, the rapper by turns funny, touching, insightful and thoughtful. Mind you, it doesn’t sound like a new record, and that’s not a criticism - merely an observation that the Roots Manuva sound, as it is now, lives and breathes in an analogue state that brings freshness and a little vulnerability.
It’s Me Oh Lord, for instance, is a deep song that takes place over an older synthesizer sound, Manuva in confessional mode as he looks to the skies, at times crying out while elsewhere murmuring almost inaudibly. On the other side of the fence sits Buff Nuff, a Toddla T production and a thinly veiled ode to the female form. Funny and engaging, it’s an account of Manuva locking on to a girl with his radar and refusing to let go. Also making a contribution to production is Metronomy, whose plangent brass accompaniment to Let The Spirit is unexpectedly touching, and conjures the image of Manuva arriving in the bandstand when everyone’s gone home.
It’s possibly his most touching moment to date, and catchy with it - the very antithesis of Witness (One Hope), but every bit as effective. The enjoyment doesn’t stop there, as the overall textures are heavily influenced by a passion of Smith’s, well before he got in to hip hop - the sound of Channel One and Studio One. As a result of this focus the bass lines are big, often monstrously deep - and sound great turned up loud on a stereo. The rapper’s manner, too, is more in keeping with their aesthetic, taking the record more towards the Caribbean but not forgetting the vignettes of Englishness we’ve come to know and love from this source.
This being Roots Manuva there’s a lyrical gem in pretty much each song - and this being Roots Manuva, a lot of them are intensely personal observations. Most tellingly in It’s Me Oh Lord, he states that “you know my trade mark, my trade start - first and foremost we’re dealing with the heart”. And that’s where the principle appeal of this record lies - within its varied musical styles, a personal drama continues to play out - one the listener can easily relate to.

Not long ago, an unsolicited DVD arrived at The Residents’ studio. Since the location of the group’s private inner sanctum is a closely-guarded secret, the appearance of the disc was definitely regarded as a little strange. Other than the occasional piece of junk mail, nothing ever arrived at The Residents’ intimate work space without an invitation. But the envelope containing the disc bore a familiar return address, so, after first ignoring it for a few weeks, The Residents finally opened the package and put the disc, crudely-labelled “Postcards From Patmos,” into a DVD player.
Fascinated, the group watched as a most curious document unfolded before their eyes. It seems that a former colleague, known to everyone as “Bunny”, had become convinced that his brother had disappeared on the Greek island of Patmos. After weeks of vainly attempting to get assistance in locating his lost sibling, the man detailed his plight in a series of videos. Technically inept, The Residents’ former friend was reaching out to them for assistance. It seems the man had heard of YouTube and other internet video websites, but he had no idea how to upload his pathetically primitive cry for help.
Uncertain as to whether they were watching evidence of a real problem, ignored by friends and authorities, or the gradual breakdown of a once-stable personality, The Residents were nevertheless moved by their friend’s dilemma and immediately decided to offer their help. Using their colleague’s return address and last-known phone number as starting points, they attempted to reach him but got no response. Determined, they contacted other friends and former co-workers of the man, but no one had seen him for months. It was as if he had disappeared.
The group then thought the best solution was to upload their friend’s video exactly as it was given to them, but after watching the DVD several times, they came to the conclusion that it was simply too crude - even for YouTube. The lighting, sound quality and camera work were so substandard that their friend’s cry for help would never be seen. While posting the videos might be a labour of love, the group’s energy and affection was obviously misplaced. But what could they do?
After brief consideration, the answer became obvious and the original “Postcards From Patmos” DVD became the inspiration for The Residents’ latest project. Changing the name to The Bunny Boy in honour of their missing friend, the group recorded an album of pop songs based on the contents of the original DVD. Then, continuing to feel pathos and inspiration for their colleague’s situation, they re-created the original “Patmos” videos.

There’s plenty bubbling under at Brownswood these days — the house of music headed by the legendary Gilles Peterson, easily one of our favorite talents ever for picking a groove! As with the previous volumes, this set features some of the best up-and-coming artists to fall under Peterson’s ear in recent years — some of whom have issued work elsewhere, some who are making their debut on this set — all coming together for a set of music that has all the best energy and creativity we’ve come to love in Gilles P compilations over the years. The range of styles here is wonderful — jazzy one minute, spacey the next — with bits of hip hop, classic funk, and Latin touches cropping up all over the place — truly a 21st Century blend of sounds, but one with a great ear for the past as well. Titles include “Fragment Zero & I Kept Dubbin” by Kenneth Bager with Gisli, “Prayers For Angry Young Men” by Charlie Dark & Roger Robinson, “Where Would You Be” by Yaw, “Something Important” by Jukes, “A Place To Go” by DJ Day, “How Bout Us” by Katalyst with Steve Spacek, “Get Familiar” by Bullion, “Morning Light” by Rozzi Daime, “Floatin” by Stacy Epps, “Spiral” by The Invisible, “Aurora” by Arun Ghosh, and “Turn Your Lights On” by Emanative with Ahu.

“Perhaps the most critically-acclaimed art-rock band of this decade, Deerhoof continue their amazing musical evolution on their new album “Offend Maggie”. Featuring new guitarist Ed Rodriquez, the album is a more streamlined affair than the maximalism of ‘Friend Opportunity’, the songs grooving and loose in the vein of ‘Apple O’ or ‘Reveille’. The band continues to press forward, with Satomi’s fractured lyrics matching the band’s kaleidoscopic take on post-millennial pop music.”

10. “Give Up To Get”
12. “This Way” (feat. Pete Simpson)
13. “Stockport Carnival”
As any fool knows, Mr Scruff is more than just a DJ/producer. The bearded Stockport wonder is a cartoonist, purveyor of fine teas, club impresario, lover of fish (but not in a funny way) and general purveyor of a Better Way of Life for Right-Minded Club Folk. Mr Scruff has also sold a cool half million records whilst with Ninja Tune. Now the Mancunian maverick and label launch a new venture: NINJA TUNA. Instead of a traditional (dull, pointless, hopeless, life-sapping) album campaign, over the next 18 months Ninja Tuna will release various types of Scruff ephemera, intramedia and post-prandial devicing - music, clothing, merchandise, art, technology, widgets, wall vinyls, videos, refrigeration devices, you bloody name it.
If we can fit a wobbly cartoon of a potato person on it and render it with the production values of a space shuttle mission, then it might just happen. Think Apple Corps without the hippy pretension and bottomless pit of cash. Or think of Factory Records, only with more sealife and less dangerous drugs.
Just to ease you into things, release number one in this new venture is the most traditional - a single on which Scruff shows that all his music-making virtues are intact. Funny, funky, musically warm and astute, but with some of that cartoonish funfair atmosphere that makes every Scruff release a celebration, “Donkey Ride” is a collaboration with longtime cohort Quantic and pianist Andy Kingslow. Coming on like “Roobarb & Custard” on a day out with Ray Charles, it’s a green dog leading the blind kind of tune. Nuff said. Meanwhile, “Giant Pickle” slaps the biggest hip hop break up against hi-life keyboards and moody strings for the most moving ode to large vegetables killed by vinegar since…. erm, well maybe it’s a first. Unfeasible bass and cowbell snaps, this will move the floor. It’s not for us to say where….
Ninja Tuna - fishy business in an age of watered-down flava. Get collecting…

Matthew Herbert’s dazzling new album, There’s Me and There’s You will be released October 28, 2008 on !K7.

The Orb - Little Fluffy Clouds
"Little Fluffy Clouds" is centered around clips from an interview with Rickie Lee Jones in which she recalls picturesque images of her childhood. Critics and fans sometimes attribute the odd nasal tonality of Rickie Lee Jones' voice to drug use, though Jones later claimed that it was the result of a heavy cold. The sample comes from "A Conversation with Rickie Lee Jones", an interview featured on a promotional 2-CD edition of the Flying Cowboys album.
Interviewer: "What were the skies like when you were young?"
Jones: "They went on forever – They - When I w- We lived in Arizona, and the skies always had little fluffy clouds in 'em, and, uh... they were long... and clear and... there were lots of stars at night. And, uh, when it would rain, it would all turn - it- They were beautiful, the most beautiful skies as a matter of fact. Um, the sunsets were purple and red and yellow and on fire, and the clouds would catch the colors everywhere. That's uh, neat cause I used to look at them all the time, when I was little. You don't see that. You might still see them in the desert."
Jones was upset at the unauthorized use of her voice and pursued the issue in the legal system. Big Life chose to settle out of court for an undisclosed sum of money for use of her voice on The Orb's recording.
The song also uses a harmonica sample from Ennio Morricone's The Man With The Harmonica (from the film Once Upon a Time in the West) and parts of Electric Counterpoint, a piece for multitracked guitars composed by Steve Reich and recorded by Pat Metheny. Reich, unlike Jones, was "genuinely flattered" by The Orb's use of his work and instructed his record company not to sue. Alex Paterson has also mentioned that fans would "die" if they discovered where the drums on "Little Fluffy Clouds" originated from.
Super Discount - Le Patron Est Devenu Fou! 7"
This brilliant single from Etienne De Crecy's Super Discount/Minos Pour Main Basse outfit features two remixes of "Le Patron Est Devenu Fou!" (The Boss Has Gone Mad).

2. Two Lone Swordsmen Dub Mix
Expect low slung, stretched out grooviness.
I'm gonna post the 10" and 12" versions of this as well, you lucky fuckers.

Super Discount - Le Patron Est Devenu Fou! 10"
This edition features not only the full length original cut of "Le Patron..." but also a fab Etienne De Crecy Remix of "Solidissimo" by Air, which I think is exclusive to this release.
Makes me wish I still smoked weed.
Vinyl rip at 320 Kbps.
Depeche Mode - Leave In Silence 7" and Leave In Silence 12"
A great single which begins to show the more melancholic side of the band. The flipside, "Excerpts From My Secret Garden" sounds exactly like what it is, however. A studio doodle created to plug a gap due to the fact that they didn't have enough songs. Things were about to get dramatically better, though...
Vinyl rips at 320 Kbps.
Depeche Mode - Speak And Spell
I pulled this one out on a whim a few days ago and was amazed at how great it sounds. Daniel Miller's production influence shouldn't be underestimated here, because there's a fair bit of the bubblegum harmonies that were so heavily featured on The Silicon Teens album. That said, Gahan is a proper singer and the fizzing pop melodies of Vince Clark are among his best work, being the equal of The Yazoo albums.

GOLDEN EARRING - MOONTAN (1973)
Some people know Golden Earring only for their best known song,"Radar Love", which I've always found slightly odd because they have plenty of other songs that are as good or better, on this and other albums.
This is guitar driven rock, not heavy rock, I'd call it melodic rock with a nod towards the progressive rock end of the spectrum as many of the songs have more complex structures than is usual.
I've always found them very enjoyable to listen to. On this album for instance, you have "Candy's Going Bad", "Are you Receiving Me?" and "Vanilla Queen" that are certainly up to "Radar Love" standard if not better.
1. Candy's Going Bad
2. Are You Receiving Me
3. Suzy Lunacy (Mental Rock)
4. Radar Love
5. Vanilla Queen

Grace Jones - Nightclubbing (81 ^ 91mb)
By all means a phenomenal pop album that claimed the number one slot on NME Album of the Year. Nightclubbing saw Grace Jones working once again with Sly Dunbar, Robbie Shakespeare, and the remainder of the Compass Point team, providing ideal backdrops for Jones yet again, casting a brisk but not bristly sheen over buoyant structures. Nightclubbing also continues Jones' tradition of picking excellent songs to reinterpret. This time out, the Police's "Demolition Man," Bill Withers' "Use Me," and Iggy Pop's "Nightclubbing" receive radical reinterpretations. The lead-off single for the album was Sting's "Demolition Man", originally written for Grace Jones but also included on The Police's album Ghost in the Machine, later that same year. Nightclubbing also includes the hit single "Pull Up to the Bumper", The album closes with the ballad "I've Done It Again" written by Barry Reynolds, with whom Jones would go on to compose most of the material for 1982 Living My Life.
