Amable – The Bundle EP by Chris

As promisedAmable‘s The Bundle was released today and it’s a neat collection of various experimental trip-hop tunes produced by the Florida-based beat-maker that have appeared all over the net these past few years.

A dynamic compilation of rarities, we’ll be catching up with Amable later in the week for a chat, so make sure you subscribe to the blog and check out the album, released by the quasi-avant-garde label Geweih Ritual Documents here:

Kwala – Werewolf Barmitzvah by Chris

Everyone has bizzare rituals; whether it be conditioning thier hair before they shampoo, purposely wearing socks inside out- or something a little more involved, like sitting in the same seat at the same bar every Friday after work and ordering the same drink. We all have little things that we like to keep to ourselves- it’s what keeps us sane. For me, every Sunday night after I get home from the radio station, I pour myself a small glass of red wine, turn the TV onto the ‘classic movies’ channel (where they play all the old black-and white films), mute it, and listen to music.

Kwala‘s album Shabang may be the perfect soundtrack for these moments. As wine slowly stains my lips and the suave-looking detective in the movie lights up his cigar, Kwala‘s expansive pads and smooth down-tempo rhythms fill the full aural spectrum. Not demanding enough to be abrasive or distracting, yet far from being boring or repetitive- the best way to describe Kwala‘s music would be something like ‘post-trip-hop’. Excuse my ‘typical-music-blogger-making-up-meaningless-genres-to-avoid-actually-describing-the-music’, but being superfluous when it comes to these things does nothing justice. Plus I want to enjoy my wine.

The full album is available here for a pick-your-price download and it comes with my highest recommendation:

<edit: It seems to have disappeared, but there is still some great stuff up there>
