So a while ago I posted Pixvae:

The guitarist, Damien Cluzel, has another project called uKanDanz, this is the opening track Tchuhetén Betsèmu from their album Awo:

It's an unexpected and truly egalitarian move. Building back doors into safety-critical systems for everyone to exploit and use!.

rezzeJ - all 3 of your choices this week were right up my alley, thanks. Always good to find new bands.

Speaking of which, out of all the jazz, funk, traditional japanese folk fusion bands Aragehonzi are certainly my favourite.

Aragehonzi - Hanatsuoto - not sure why those last 2 are there - that's the problem with random youtube playlists.


Their youtube channel has some live performances including this short 20 minute set, described by google translate as Shimaonryu x Bakurocho Band x Arage Hongji - Special Collaboration Live:

Absolutely. What really struck me was how damn well those horns and rhythms were integrated into the alien terrain of proto-doom/metal. Just brilliantly done.

Juicy, but who eats Shrimp Rim? This also led me to Phat Shrimp EP.

I didn't know Susumu Yokota had this side project... I used to listen to Acid Mt. Fuji a lot so I'm going to listen to that later; really takes me back.

This week I was introduced to Brown Sabbath which answers the question "What would Black Sabbath sound like with a horn section?" - there are 2 volumes and an EP

Brownout are a 9 piece band and these are clearly a labour of love both for Black Sabbath and James Bond movie music with a horn section - yeah, definitely suggest a better description because I obviously suck at that.

Here's a couple of tracks live on KEXP:

The Wizard

Sweet Leaf

Every so often, you find some music that's unlike anything else you've ever heard. Sometimes it's an odd mash up of a couple of styles or genres that you'd never think to place together. And sometimes it's a totally undiscovered exotic genre salad - with unusual spices and fruit, a lovely delicate assortment of bitter leaves. There are oils you can't quite identify mixed up with fruit and some sour notes.

This week I stumbled upon Pixvae and as far as I know they only have 2 albums.

First is the eponymous Pixvae

Second is Cali, released last year some time

I've worn out my copy of bandcamp listening to that first album. It just sets my brain on fire. Love at first sight but, you know, with your ears. It's rare these days for me to find music I'm genuinely excited about - there's plenty of great music out there, but not that entirely captivates me, but this is one of those rare times to cherish.

For most bands I like to check how they are live so:

La Fuga - the first track off Pixvae:

Lancherito - the obvious choice for first single off Pixvae

I remember seeing a tweet from someone in a similar situation to yours who showed a really sophisticated phishing scam that used some obscure technique to essentially hijack a legitimate google url.

I wish I could find it because I'd always thought I was immune to pretty much any phishing attack and now I'm wary as hell.

Still, glad to see there's no lasting damage.

Oh man, I was hoping it was Dusty Crum.

This show isn't good by any means. Typical reality/documentertainment - repetitive especially of the sole exciting clip per show but I have enjoyed watching them catch pythons and an insight into Floridians.
