Strangely beautiful rather than beautifully strange

Bit of chill - that electric piano sound at the start is reminding me of something but I can't dig it out.

Something completely strange for those of you with a penchant for 'Difficult Listening'.

Just out on Creative Commons label Chinstrap Music is:

A spoken-word audio/video opera by Ergo Phizmiz, with text entirely snipped from the writings of Noel Coward. The audio is created from Ergo's collection of gramophone records, a sample from Monteverdi's "Combattimento de Tancredi", a wooden kitchen door, and Ergo's "Hallucination Duets".

Go to the web site to see/hear an 8 minute clip of this oddness
http://chinstrapmusic.blogspot.com.au/2012/08/chin40-ergo-phizmiz-papalaka-papalaka.html

I'm thinking only Deej would see any value in it as almost seems like an episode of the Night Air.

Does anyone know of Brian Eno's less famous brother, Roger?

Well I do, he does sort of neo-classical stuff that is really pensive and inward focussed, to my mind, some of it is quite beautiful but makes me feel like I'm about to cry.

Anyway the reason I raise it because of what just came on random, Bosques de mi Menti's Dibjujame un Cordero, I thought it was a slightly cheerier Roger Eno - makes me think of watching snow fall at dawn. Which is odd, because I've rarely slept where there was snow, and the one season I worked in the snow I did bar work and never got up that early (but may have been heading back to my digs at that time I guess).

Strange. Just strange. I love the youtube comment 'my mom walked in so I switched to porn. Easier to explain...'

When I was a young rocker I used to follow this band around, still think they're brilliant.

Lovely. Never heard a Smog track I didn't like - I just haven't heard many - and this just came up on random. Worked nicely sitting on the deck on warm tropical night.....

I downloaded this from Jamendo (CC licence) a few years ago) and every time I hear a track I'm impressed. Really should play the whole thing more often.

You can have your own copy if you like http://www.jamendo.com/en/artist/355467/planete-sauvage

These French guys are sort of Tangerine Dream meets Jean-Michel Jarre meets some more modern prog rock (not muse,or trail of the dead) with a sprinkling of Floyd.

Just found this on an old Never Ending Internet Mix Tape (tips hat to Deej)

Starts beautiful but strange soon kicks in and builds. Great name for a band: **** Buttons.

@hingehead,
I heard this on an advert, looks like they're from your neck of the woods.

Just found this on Triple J's unearthed (unsigned bands upload tracks - get radio play and reviews) free streaming and mp3 downloads too.

St. South is being featured this week and the podcast said she was raised on an eclectic mix of music. Elvis Costello, Nina Simone, some others that didn't sound that eclectic (compared to me, for example X-D)

Who she sounds like to me is Emiliana Torrini - and that's always a good thing.

Actually discovered this after hearing a cover. Mrs Hinge knew the original but kept it a secret Wink

Lorde is a 15 year old kiwi, not that you can tell by this track
