More pleasing for obvious reasons is Faces - Music From The Sound Track, (John Cassevetes,1968). Yes, the internet still holds treasures, but you knew that anyway. The opener, 'Love Is All You Really Want', has the same dreamy feel to it as Miles Davis' In A Silent Way, but with Teo Macero producing, that should be no surprise. I've no idea who the players are, but the solos suggest a few notches above standard session work. Could that even be Herbie Hancock on electric keyboard? There's a lot of late-60s, cool funkiness going on, along with melancholy moods made for mid-life marital trauma. You can get it here.
Not much new material has excited me of late, but you know how fussy I am. Still, Bee Mask with When We Were Eating Unripe Pears on Spectrum Spools is worth hearing. Chris Madak makes intriguing sounds that morph as they move, and that's just what I enjoy. With so much music made by the ABC of Electronic Music rule book, the kind you can easily assess in tiny bites, it's refreshing to hear something that pays replays. He's not startlingly original, but who is? Influences range from the grand Kosmiche ('The Story Of Keys And Locks') to a Radiophonic feel infused with beefy outbursts of bass and blasts of noise (throughout).
