Just DLed the previews of the new Throwing Muses material from the
Throwing Music homepage at http://www.mmaweb.com/throwingmusic/.  Fuck!!
I can't wait for "Limbo" to come out!!!  The snippet of "Ruthie's
Knocking" made me wet myself.

As I write this, there are 3 "Limbo" song previews.  They plan to add a
new one each day for each song.  Spiffy keen idea, eh?

From: Susan Curran (susan@ACS.BU.EDU)
Subject: Husikesque, etc.


Someone was asking about the new Lida Husik & Beaumont Hannant album. The
'band' name is Husikesque and the title is 'Green Blue Fire'.

Considering that the collaboration is a case of two artists venturing out of
their 'genres' it works amazingly well. Actually, it's a really good album
regardless. Lida has 4 solo albums (3 on Shimmy  Disc, her last 'Joyride' was
on Caroline) and Beaumont Hannant, known basically as an 'ambient-techno'
artist, has a substantial body of work as well. Beaumont Hannant is known in
the UK music press as someone who flouts the conventions and limitations of
the genre and this album's no exception.

Lida's music and lyrics often have a dark tone to them, and this gets offset
by Beaumont's more lighthearted bleepy hums and whirrs. The overall effect is
sort of 'triphoppy', defying ambient's boundaries by having vocals and song
structures, but Lida's never been a conventional singer-songwriter either, and
the percussive electronics provide a nice underpinning. The 'Evening at the
Grange' ep reminded me a bit of the Magnetic Fields with Lida's desultory alto
in lieu of Susan Anway, while the Husikesque album is a bit more dubby and
percussive with less guitar and e-bow. Along with Seefeel, their collaboration
is one of the missing links between guitar-based and electronic music,
incorporating the best elements of each.

As for other stuff they've done, I highly recommend tracking down the
harder-to-find but even more worthwhile "Your Bag" by Lida and "Sculptured" by
Beaumont. "Sculptured" is a compilation of sorts, with a variety of tracks
that Beaumont did in collaboration with other artists. Lida sings on three
songs that are absolutely amazing, and the rest of the album is really good as
well.

Subject: Stereolab & Prolapse


Just have to second the vote for Peng! as best Stereolab album, even better
than Switched On (despite that album's amazing pop moments). Stereolab are
really more of a singles band, and their lps are kind of spotty, but Peng is
their first and best. Plus, it has "Super Falling Star" which is probably my
favorite song by them.

Another note for Stereolab fans on the West Coast... get to the show early and
don't miss Prolapse! They've just finished touring Europe with Stereolab and
Sonic Youth and that's probably a good reference point, as are Quickspace
Supersport (post-Faith Healers) who they play with a lot. They have two
vocalists - Mick the ranter with the thick Scottish accent and Linda who
contributes the melodic babas. Imagine Laetitia Sadier and Black Francis
having a knock-down, drag out fight, which they actually do in the song "Tina,
This is Matthew Stone" (Prolapse, not Laetitia & Frank) and you begin to get
the idea. They rock -and- they groove, and if I could afford a plane ticket to
California, I'd be a groupie. I'm really upset they're only touring the West
Coast and trying to take consolation in the fact that at least others will get
to experience the wonder that is Prolapse, so do me a personal favor and go
see them. Just don't tell me how good they were. I may have to kill you. Their
2nd album 'Backsaturday' is out now on Big Cat (US) and their first 'Pointless
Walks to Dismal Places' has hardly left my CD player in the past year.

Update on "This Rimy River" Limited Edition


Apologies to those of you who've ordered the limited edition, and are
wondering where on earth it is. There has been a small setback at the
binding stage, which has since been remedied, and we're shooting for a
mail-out date of end-of-April.

I'll post further notices if any other delays seem imminent.
Let's hope not, eh?

Yes, I agree. I wouldn't use the forementioned two albums as a starting
point, I would take them to be the prime essence of what StereoLab is all
about.  If you only like to dance to albums, well...stick to the top 40
stuff and stir clear of Stereolab in general.

You better subscribe to the list, because then you would have known this:

the 'Spiritchaser' album of Dead Can dance is scheduled to be released in
UK and Europe: june 3rd, in the United States: june 11th.

But since you don't subscribe, you'll never know.

I'm a big P5 fan.  If you like P5, try early Everything But the Girl
albums like Eden or Everything But the Girl.  Also, Combustible Edison is
in the same vein, and there's a great new band called The Legendary Jim
Ruiz Group that all P5 fans should definitely hear.

Subject: Lush in NYC and other things


I bought my tickets for the May 2nd show.  Can't wait.  I saw them twice
last time around (Mercury Lounge & The Manhattan Ballroom) and both times
where phenomenal.  There are still tix left, but who knows with all the
radio play (I heard it on the radio 3x in Salt Lake City of all places)
they could get snatched up by all the alternative wannabes about these days.

2nd, I was trying to digest Aphex Twin's "Ventolin" this weekend and
decided that if music was visual, he would be the Brothers Quay of
music.  I think it would be great if they did a collaborative effort, but
aside from this email, I don't know if this has crossed anyone else's
mind.  Opinions?

3rd, any news of a The The tour?  While skeptical at first, I truly think
Hanky Panky is a GREAT album.

One last note.  I was at the Princeton Record Exchange today
(Princeton, NJ by the Univ.) and they still are one of the best
records store around.  So if you are having a hard time tracking down
that single or other thing, give them a call (don't have the number handy
though).

        Wow!  I'd love to get a hold of that also.  I can't even track
down the drums and bass remixes of "Walking Wounded" though announced on
the list a few weeks ago.  None of the internet music stores have it and
my local stores don't.
        Arrrrhhhhh.

You might also try the two albums by Grenadine (featuring Mark Robinson
