I’ve just uploaded a new mix: Kind of Indietronic, Indiepop, Indierock, Experimental. C90-style this first part is 48 mins long, second part to follow sometime soon. Enjoy listening.
My friend Paul Gough, perhaps better known under his recording name Pimmon, is coming a long way from Sydney, Australia, for his second european tour after almost ten years. Here’s his tour schedule so far:
On most shows, Paul aka Pimmon will play with some other great artists, e.g.
- Jan Jelinek & Andrew Pekler as Ursula Bogner at Les Ateliers Claus in Brussels on 3 April 2012,
- Jürgen de Blode aka Köhn at (h)ear festival in Heerlen (NL) on 21 April 2012
- Robert Henke aka Monolake at Présences Électronique festival in Paris on Saturday, 31 March.
Paul’s Tour starts in England at a small village called Cragg Vale. The venue sounds as if it’s perfectly suited for his experimental, sometimes ambient, sometimes droney soundscapes: According to Hibernate Records it’s a Baptist church called St John’s in the Wildnerness.
Time to listen to some Pimmon music:
Vovul II (7″, Static Caravan, 1999)
(still one of my Pimmon all-time favs)
Yicco (from “The Oansome Orbit”, Room40, 2011)
(I’d love to also provide the track ‘frosty pink’ here, but neither do I find a source on the web to embed , nor do I own the (great) Snaps, Crackles, Pops album on Tigerbeat6. In case anybody has an advice please post it in the comments section.)
Besides being a nice chap and a musician, Paul is an audio engineer working for ABC Radio National in Sydney where he also hosts Quiet Space, a programme focussing on experimental electronic music from ambient to drones to blissful pop. More on that in one my next postings.
This is part 1 of a new series focusing on Music for Children and grown-ups. There is a lot of good pieces out there which are not allegedly produced for children by adults (and which in reality are often just plain nerve-racking), but which actually are perfectly suited for both parents and children. Unfortunately for my (potential) non-german readers the first recommendation is a german song:
‘Der Apfelmann’ is part of Blumfeld’s (concept) album ‘Verbotene Früchte’, but it works perfectly without the intellectual claims and is one very nice ‘happy song’ to sing along with your children young and old.
The video above shows Blumfeld playing one of their last shows ever (presumably at 29 April 2007 at Postbahnhof Berlin.
I recorded this track with my daughter. She played piano and drums, I played the Cello track and arranged the piece.
We like the result a lot – and hope you do so too. Let us know & please share the track (it’s licensed under CC-BY-NC-SA). It’s called ‘Liebesengel’ (‘Angels of Love’).
