So far this has been an awful year; war, a big earthquake in Japan, revolutions in the middle east, famine in East Africa, worldwide recession, volcanoes exploding, and just recently, to top it up, massive riots in London; burning buildings, looting… what’s happening??? so much anger, so much civil unrest and unhappiness in the world… not sure if I missed anything, but I definitely started loosing sight of the good things that happened this year. Putting natural disasters aside, can we blame all this on human nature? Are we, as the human race simply inapplicable of being decent to one another??? What’s the answer to our problems? What’s the solution to this madness? [These questions are rhetorical by the way, there is enough amateur politics on the net as it is].
Some more less important unfortunate news, PIAS, the independent music distribution warehouse has been burnt down during the riots of London… the independent music labels such as Brownswood, Peacefrog, Sonar Kollectiv, Soul Jazz and Warp Records, need your support more than ever.
Looking at the brighter side of life, here is the latest best of all worlds podcast featuring tracks from the likes of Dotmatic, Martyn, the Colman Brothers, Lone, Synkro and Aroop Roy… My favourite track this week is the track titled “U Don’t Survive” by the mighty Machinedrum, his new album Room(s) is out on Planet Mu. Loads of reviews on this album on the internet, here is a particularly good one. Buy the record, the cd, the mp3, and support good music.
