On Cue

It’s been a busy month for us at Sells Studio. The boss is breathing down our neck, hounding us for those monthly reports, the relatives insist on having us over for tea, and the dog continues to drop its ball at our feet, begging for attention. All we really want is to sit down, have a drink,  and spend some quality time with our records…

Here’s a list of what’s helping us cope with the poor housing market, the dismal food crisis, unending war, drought, famine, John Arne Riise’s own goal, and prevailing ignorance:

 Michael’s “Music from the first quarter of 2008:”

Apparat – Walls
Autechre – Quaristice
El Guincho – Alegranza
Fennesz & Sakamoto – Cendre
Goldfrapp – Seventh Tree + Monster Love (Spiritualized vs. Goldfrapp)
Justus Kohncke – Safe and Sound
Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks – Real Emotional Trash
Neon Neon – Stainless Style
The Orb – The Dream
Why? – Alopecia

Joseph’s  “On Repeat:”

Stars of the Lid –  “And Their Refinement Of The Decline”
Ghost –  “Second Time Around”
Sun Kil Moon –  “April”
Scott Walker –  ” The Drift”
Autechre –  “Quaristice”
The Fall –  ” Grotesque” 
Kiln –  “Dusker”
John Cale – “Fear”
Loscil – “Stases”

Kenny’s “Recent Record Bin Finds:”

My friend in NYC has turned me on to early 80s Pete Shelley solo work.

I’ve picked up Bogdan Raczynski – Alright,
Disrupt – Foundation Bit, nearly the whole Misc. full length discography!,
Bochum Welt –
Elan, Toy – s/t on Smalltown Supersound – a truly silly joy-infused bouncy bump story,
The Whitest Boy Alive ( an Erlend Oye project!),
Dreamies – Program Twelve,
Blotnik Brothers – Mizuage (on Satamile – one of the best current electro labels & it’s based in NYC).

Let us know what you’ve been listening to!
