Music. Musings. Miscellaneous
Non-Zeros is hosting an incredible lineup this weekend at the Rock The Tay Festival. Tickets are £5 for a night or £10 for the whole event. If you’re in Dundee and want to hear the sound of the scene, this is the place to do it.
I think we’re supporting on a lineup with Avast!, Carson Wells, Kaddish and Our Smallest Adventures tonight.
I say “I think” because I don’t know if this is real life.
It’s going to be like the Starburst Sours of gigs…

I’ve been gone a while.

Talent is getting younger and younger these days. Close your eyes and you’ll hear a Drakesque timbre and flow over something that sounds like MikeWillMadeIt’s attempt at emulating Clams Casino.

Open them and you’ll see an 18-year-old, Swedish kid who calls himself Yung Lean. I Öhed when I did …then I rinsed it for a fortnight or so.

Between this and Skepta’s “That’s Not Me”, there’s a Jam of the Week. (even though both songs have been around for a couple of months …did I say I’ve been gone a while?)

"…So they’re aliens."

"No. That’s stupid. They’re turtles."

Deary me.

My quest for a better grasp of production in the past week or so led me to a tutorial on Point Blank’s site which featured the first quarter of The Street’s ‘Original Pirate Material’.

It’s funny how British electronic music has essentially come full circle to these sounds. Perhaps the popularity of these nu-garage tunes points to the timelessness of this genre.

…AND Mike Skinner’s off-kilter delivery reaches me a lot better than it did years ago, when I couldn’t fathom what was so cool about not keeping time ‘like good rappers do’.

I stand corrected.

…Ahhh shit.

Ahwell. At least we’ll outswag all the other teams;

My friend, Ross Middlemiss, just released this under the Little Anchors moniker.

Talented bastard.

His previous release, entitled ‘A Searing Analysis of Pretty Much Everything’ is also worth checking out.
