Recently saw The Prestige, half magic, half occult, which we thought was very good. I never realised Bowie played Tesla until I posted this clip here, though. Most people’s tracks this week are quite dark, mine are no exception..
General Science/Ish/Papa la bas, Conjure.
Science meets seance. Kip Hanrahan’s latin jazz with a badly behaved ghost..perhaps more suitable for the magic theme, so I’ve warmed it up again.
The Witch, by 25 cents. Nice, thrashy lo-fi track by one of NZ label Flying Nun’s first woman-only bands, very obscure but worth a listen.
Chilled out Nu Jazz for Saturday evening…
Two tracks from the Future sounds of jazz series:
Raise the dead, by Kimbu Kimra, Atjazz remix
Voodoo Science, by Boom bip & DJ Osiris
Possessed trumpet married to hard edged funk- just to complete the set of Miles Davis tracks, Sivad, by the Miles Davis group edits three fragments together- the ending of a live version of Directions, followed by a studio fragment of Honky Tonk, and then a live Honky Tonk.
Tricky’s masterpiece to end with..
