Music / Mad Scene Blip Another outburst from Unsinn
« on: May 26, 2012, 12:36:55 PM »
So . Szat time of year kids . Records popping up like daisies after the long months underground.
  New out right about now is the first Mad Scene long player BLIP produced and mixed at MGMT's Blanker Unsinn wunder-spot .
If your a fan of the Clean , or Ladybug Transistor or Yo La Tengo then look no further . The aptly named band is a crazy conglom featuring Hamish Kilgour , Gary Olsen & Georgia Hubley alongside wfmu radio topcat indi-arbiter Brian Turner .
 Hamish Kilgour also did logos and art working duties on the Brian eno / it's working 'fun zone ' (?!?) 7".
    The 12 songs on the Siltbreeze.com vinyl release , mixed during the winter of 2010/11 make a rightly unhinged race of a record you'll be glad to spin at yr next sock hop or beach party .expect to find the corpses of t Rex , the who , the v.u. and more in the mornings jetsam...,....
      Nice.............

« on: May 24, 2012, 04:43:44 PM »
Maybe justmayb u might b able to find the Cheval Sombre Trensmat 7'' released (300 copies) in antisssssssipppippiapation of the new full length CS Lp  'mad love' out on the UK label sonic cathedral on vinyl Lp in August .
     The   color vinyl  7" , was recorded by Nick Kramer + produced by sonIc boom and nick kramEr at MGMT s Brooklyn Blanker Unsinn sound pad  during the cold winter of 2010 and the sweet heatwave of 2011 . A bonsai of an Lp .succinct,tidy , beautiful and organic .
    Rumours are that some of theridiculouslynamed folx on the record are intact butter noun to us as possibly normly named folks from Ohmygodsville USA .
   Never the less , check out future Cheval sombre usual myfacebook type places .
   A demain mes copain.  You'll dig it ,mebe save for a summer evening wane or morning spark .
       Good wishes
