Today's new favourite band: Leveret

Leveret is one fourth of Egyptian Hip Hop. He makes psychedelic folk music. It's good. Especially 'Tiger Coloured Rocks'.

Leveret's myspace

A spot of reality augmentation

All reality will come pre-augmented in the future. Oh yes and we'll all fall in love with replicants, develop strange obsessions with miniature origami animals and stare moodily into the middle distance whilst listening to Vangelis.

I can't wait. But before all that, you could have a go on Simian Mobile Disco's augmented-virtual-reality-interactive-music-maker on Thursday or Friday this week. I did. It was a lot fun but confirmed my suspicion that I am not in the least bit musical.

Temporary Pleasure, Unit 1.12 Kingly Court, London, W1
17th - 21 August, 12 until 6pm

Oh and if you haven't already, check out our SMD interview.

New Band Of The Day: Wild Palms

Wild Palms MySpace

This is very strong.

Just found this on the Sincerely Yours (fast becoming my favourite label, after putting out that blinding JJ album) website – 

YOURS0116 one eye open

"6 am, the first cars rushing by on the street outside. i write ’dreaming is a skin: i rub my dream against the other’. even if you never read these word they will follow you, like a benevolent spirit, always next to, above, in the shadow of this dream. you watch as i braid my hair, dance on the pillows. i feel reckless but i must assume morning will bring a different feeling altogether. tonight like a needle, a sword, i sharpen that feeling."

SY august 2009


Turns out they're releasing Memory Cassette's mindblowing opiate-pop symphony, at least we think – there's no details on the website, apart from this video, which we have hyperlinked to above. It's simply astounding, and it's incredibly exciting – we urge you, with all our hearts to go and buy this music.

A Mountain Of One – Bones (Way Of The Ancients Mix)

"High Magic is both a science and an art. Its roots are ancient, but its techniques continue to evolve and adapt to the conditions of all ages. The aim of magic is to effect changes in both inner and outer reality through the awareness a manipulation of unseen – therefore occult – but powerful forces."

Francis Melville in The Secrets of High Magic

Bones (above) out now, with this third-eye opening mix by Robert from Rub'n'Tug and Map of Africa. Click through and let the light in.
