Back To Lou's

Now that summer is over with and traffic on the freeway is not insane, I finally made a trip to Lou's Records in search of some new releases. All but one of the CDs was a recent release and I managed to score some good vinyl.

Area C - Haunt
Kawabata Makoto - INUI 4
Nadja - Radiance Of Shadows
Om - Pilgrimage
Deathspell Omega - Kenose

Oren Ambarchi - Stacte Motors
Oren Ambarchi & Scott Horscroft / Hado Ho - Split
Big Business - Here Come The Waterworks (gold vinyl)
GHQ - California Night Burning Dreams (plus 3" CD-R)
LSD March - Shindara Jigoku
Silvester Anfang - Echte Vlaamse Geiten

Arriving the mail during the weak was another vinyl release from Three Lobed Recordings. Under the name of Basalt Fingers, Elisa Ambrogio, Ben Chasny and Brian Sullivan play some improvised guitar-only music that take up both sides of the record. I previewed a bit of the music just hear what it was like (different from what I expected) so I still need to sit down with this one for a spin. Love the fact that a pressed CD of the vinyl material has been included with the silk screened packaging.

What do you think of the new Om? I haven't had a chance to really get to grips with it yet, but it went down well on the first couple of listens.

BTW, this comment is a thinly-disguised excuse to advertise the fact that I finally added a new live review to my blog. We'll see how long the resurgence lasts, but fingers crossed.

I've been keeping tabs on you here during my absence and very much enjoying the blog, glad that you've been more active with it than I have.

The new Om is great. While it's not a dramatic change, they are slowly progressing away from the debut. I'd say it's their finest record to date.

All the vinyl-only stuff I bought has been ripped so it's waiting for you upon your return (we'll figure something out).
