And so on to VGLP28. Some show notes – I really really dig this Beck song. I finally got a chance to see him live, sandwiched between Future Islands and The Strokes in Hyde Park last month, and it was a real humdinger, though a tad disappointing this track was not in the setlist. No matter, it kicks ‘tush’ here. Of my Glastonbury ‘discoveries’ (i.e. bands I was ignorant of until I stumbled upon them, but I’m guessing everyone else has known them for aeons comparatively), I have added a track by Weaves from Canada, who were really fun. I don’t think the recorded versions of any of the songs I heard them play quite captures the spirited performance they put in at Glasto, but I look forward to hearing more from them. I’ve stuck one of the songs from Makeup and Vanity Set’s latest, even if it has been out for a ‘little’ bit, but I tend to get my synthwave music via Bandcamp, Soundcloud, etc. so never really think to listen to it on Spotify. And to close, a track from Susumu Yokota, who sadly passed away a few months ago, aged only 54. A master craftsman at creating all kinds of wondrous ambient sample-heavy soundscapes, he also dabbled in some interesting classical collages, and the final song here today is a fine example. Lots of his music is on Spotify, so I recommend taking some time to check out his back catalogue if you are so inclined.
