I know everyone thinks the film is escapist nonsense - I don't much care really, I love it. The soundtrack is excellent though, no matter what your opinion of the film, I'm sure you'll agree....

Balam Acab -- watertree edits

4 track EP released in Feb. Rather distorted affair in comparison with everthing else I've heard from him. The first track is oddly reminiscent of an MBV outtake.

Hopefully it's better than that other EP of his “Slopped & Wetted” which was just wretched. Even his last album wasn't particularly great. I'm starting to think this guy is a flash in the pan.


I never did get around to Slopped & Wetted so I can't say. I remember reading a review that mentioned it was recorded in an underwater hotel in Dubai, but that was the only thing remotely interesting about it. This EP is pretty damn boring. Not as good as Child Death, and certainly nowhere near the realm of Wander / Wonder or the See Birds EP. Non-essential is the word. Lovely cover art, though. I'd like to know who the artist is.

I think so - just finishing my first listen.

Not as immediate as Butterfly, but it feels just as dense and complex as that record. Even more so in places, remarkably. It'll take a bit of unravelling, but there are a few moments that hit hard. The track with the U2 credit is actually one of the standouts - their input is minimal and irrelevant.

Listened to this again today. One of the finest neo-soul albums in recent memory. "Ain't That Easy" is one hell of an opening song, too.

The 180 gram reissue of this album looks and sounds fantastic.

Latest comp from The Wire, all piano-based works, apparently.

Had to switch. The thread on Phil Ochs made me dig out an album. Or two.

These soft jazz arrangements are so unlike the originals that you could make a game out of trying to guess which song is which.
