Three recent Bandcamp favourites featuring bassist, vocalist and style icon, SvetlanaNegaeva aka “Zombierella” of Messer Chups, Tentative Reels and Bleak Engineers.
This is a great mix of different musical and visual genres from 1950’s and ’60s Surf Rock, B-Movies, classic horror, American Dream, Soviet Wave, electronic goth, doomer and cold wave, Pulp fiction and more, so it brings together a lot of music, art and ideas that I like.
The Minimoog Model D has pretty much the same functions as the hardware version but you will need very small fingers to play the keys, operate the switches, oscillator dials on an iPhone or iPad screen.
The iKaossilator is a fun app as well with tons of sounds and variations to “occupy your mind”. I guess the hardware version is pretty similar and fun as well.
I’m still waiting for my free download of Nine Inch Nails’ Ghosts V – VI double album offered a few weeks ago. The site was apparently inundated.
It is a nice, ambient album. I’ve listened to it on YouTube all the way through and watched the interview with Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross explaining how they made it — completing one song per day with Trent improvising and Atticus recording then arranging it into tracks.
There is a lot of very good free music available as well on Bandcamp.
I’ve been working on a few musical ideas of my own. I got a sale the other day just when I was ready to do something else.
