One of the coolest projects we've heard from Jimi Tenor in a while – and a set that's a really great sideways-step from some of his other recent music! There's still elements of the spiritual jazz currents that Jimi's been exploring for the past decade or so, but the group's also leaner, and has a sharper electric quality too – bits of fuzz and distortion that sound especially great when things get funky – which turns out to be a fair bit of the time! The trio features heavy drums from Joonas Riippa, who's often setting a tone followed by Kalle Kalima's fuzzy guitar – while Jimi adds in loads of cool extra elements on a range of keyboards, saxes, and flute – plus some occasional vocals. Some elements are quite acoustic and organic, while others have a spacey moogy vibe – and there's a focused energy here that almost distills all of Tenor's musical ideas of the past decade or two, and finds a whole new way forward. Titles include "Can We Yes", "Go Go Go", "Blind", "Sakura", "Hymn To The Sun God", "The Missing Page 1964", and "100 Ufoa Suomesta". CD

A pretty nice new post modern electro popper from Quebec based DJ/producer/painter Ghislain Poirier – featuring rhymes from former Anti Pop Consortium MC Beans. The Pro Tools funk sound is in full force here – with that deep, clean bass & beats sound, with prominent vocals by Beans. The non-Beans numbers have more of an ambient electronica vibe, but still with hip hop-learned beats setting the pace. 12-inch, Vinyl record
A 32 minute suite of sounds from Thelema – dedicated to the film Scanners and its original score by David Cronenberg and Howard Shore! The music here feels as if it's more the group's own, but is definitely in the spirit of the creepy movie – lots of spare organ lines that move slowly through space, mixed with some analogue electronics that are sometimes spacey, sometimes noisy – peppered with a few more electric bits that really surprised us!

(Amazing vinyl, worth the price of the record alone – kind of a yellow/brown coffee stain color, and nice and heavy!)
