I ordered over $70 of records from the USA a month ago. I got a letter from An Post this morning saying a mere 9.38 Euros was duty was due on the package before they would deliver.
Foolishly pre ordered something from the UK a couple of months back. Pretty much same situation. 10 quid to get it released from an post. Never again

Cool! Will do!

Always wondered what La Monte Young was about when I saw his name

I think this could be good music for playing chess
His stuff is impossible to find and he has a bunch of lackeys removing everything from the internet as fast as they can. I‘ve been able to get some of his albums over the years but if you just had a casual interest in checking out his music then you’ve an uphill struggle ahead of you. I’m surprised I found this as easily as I did!

still better to pay 9.38 Euro than 37% VAT (?) which I avoided, as it wasn't initially added into the online purchase.
I am still getting used to this after 28 years of never paying any customs tax.

Delectable instrumental Americana with Barry Walker on pedal steel that immediately reminds me of 90s Thrill Jockey stuff like Pullman and Directions In Music - no bad reference points to pull out of the pocket.

Put aside five hours of your life and just immerse yourself in this before it gets whipped down from YouTube.


lamonte young just popped into my head the other night. i visited the dream house in new york about 10 years ago. it was an amazing experience. spent a good hour in there zoned out to the pulsating drones and the general pinkness. i watched sisters with transistors this week (well worth a watch) and seeing pauline oliveros reminded me of lamonte young, and the visit.

This is an intriguing album that has hooked me in over the last few days. Know next to nothing about the artist or label- it's a kind of brass exotica, lots of Balkan/South American/Mediterranean vibes. Feels like being in a Emir Kusturica movie. Definitely an acquired taste, but only took me c. 0.4 listens to acquire it

Popping this in here because it might warrant another listen.

it's reminding me of a few things... or is it just the vocals/melodies warble a little in that plaintive Mark Eitzel manner?

Two new Christina Carter albums out today! I have to say my heart sank a little when I saw they were solo voice albums but this one at least is quite engaging
