Hot Hot Summer Day

One long period of inactivity went over into another and now it’s the middle of summer. A hot summer day seeking shelter with a cool breeze underneath a full moon.

It’s the first time that I skip a whole month. I spend most of my days outdoors. The remaining time classical music and some books kept me company at home while everybody else went far abroad to seek quiet shelter.

Committing myself to lazy holiday inspired inactivities does not mean that I haven’t paid attention to any music going ‘round. On the contrary really. I scored some great compilations and rare grooves. This time some unmixed gay meat horse disco on Strut, plus the ZE Records Story, Balearica 3 with sounds from the white island and an undiscovered deetour EP that some bloggers put together.

Silvius Leopold Weiss – Allegro from Sonate n° 42 in a, Robert Barto on lute

Guillaume Lekeu – Très Animé, Lent et Très vif from Piano trio in f by Narziss und Goldmund Pianotrio

Léo Delibes – Les Filles de Cadix by Patricia Petitbon soprano + Orchestra of the Opera of Lyon with Yves Abel

Reynaldo Hahn – Mon Bel Inconnu by Susan Graham mezzo-soprano + City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra with Yves Abel

Ashkhabad – Aisha
Reading about the Arab conquest made me dream about going to Central and Middle Asia next year.

The Dresden Dolls – Coin-Operated Boy

Hong Kong Dong - Yoko Oh No

Lizzy Mercier Descloux – Hard-Boiled Babe (original mix)
Originally a bonustrack for the rerelease of Press Color but I have the original so no need for a rerelease. That’s why I’m glad to find this great track on the new ZE compilation of Strut.

Clark – Rainbow Voodoo
From a nice new Clark album
Clark – Look Into The Heart Now

John Tejada & Arian Leviste – From Empty Words

Altair Nouveau – Dark Energy

Mr. Monday – Daybreak (original mix)

Louis – Pink Footpath (original mix)

The Unknown Cases – Masimbabele
The Unknown Cases were an obscure German electronic duo, very similar to DAF. In 1983, they teamed up with African vocalist Reebop Kwaku Baah and unleashed this mighty track on the world.

Tullio de Piscopo – Stop Bajon (Primavera)

C Brand – Wired For Games

Paul McCartney feat. Stevie Wonder – What's That You're Doing

Karen Young – Deetour

Jasper van't Hof – Hoomba Hoomba (full length version)
