  1. I've had stuff in my "incoming" pile for some time but not enough time to give them enough love, nor to post here. Backstage Gurus ‎– Mediterranean Odyssey Youth & Gaudi ‎– Astronaut Alchemists Remixes Maan ‎– Floral Cortex Zen Baboon ‎– Revisited The first three were bought from Bandcamp's share-waiving days. The next one is very close, July 3 midnight to midnight Pacific time. Have you prepared your shopping list already?
  2. Is that "we" of Lab 37 just Filipe again? I'm not sure if I'd shell out £32 for a 12" before seeing that they really exist and ship. (Coincidentally, I do have a copy of the In Vitro EP CDr release so some actual product has materialised in the past, but still...)
  3. I already did last time. But it's a good idea in general.
  4. My purchases from Bandcamp's May revenue share waiving day have been trickling in. The next one should be on June 5. Use your chance to give full support to artists, hm? M-Run ‎– Live Session Album GoaD ‎– Hypnotic Mirage Master Margherita ‎– Border 50 Eskostatic ‎– Serpentines & Valleys James Murray & Francis M. Gri ‎– Remote Redux Aes Dana ‎– Inks + cards, stickers, bookmarks and a handwritten note signed by Aes Dana. Youth & Gaudi – Astronaut Alchemists Remixes is now shipping. Should arrive soon...
  5. Cannot see much else than the general colour...could be Dimension 5 - Transdimensional...or not.
  6. Closing with Morphic Resonance? And here I was thinking that I'd get some sleep tonight... Link to the YT stream, BTW

    Goa track ID

    Technossomy - Skinflint...
  8. Eco - Delhi Dancer?
  9. This week: Suns of Arqa - Bringing Light to the New World Disorder Globular & Geoglyph ‎- Messages from the Resonator And a few more should be in the mail right now. There was a happy coincidence with finally having a bit of free time to place long-postponed orders, Bandcamp's revenue share waiving day and a couple of sales. (Mark your calendars: the next similar campaign days are June 5 and July 3.)
  10. Suomi mainittu! Jos on pakko mennä torille niin muistakaa kahden metrin välit.
  11. Isn't this both goaish and shponglish if there's a bit of both in the contributors? I don't really get what "appreciation" is referring to, though. Not reacting to a post in three days? I'm still going through the backlog of purchases that I made in January, there's more in the mail, and my to-buy list is miles long. If I'm also expected to check the samples and respond to every label blurb within days, this is starting to get quite stressful...
  12. My copies are still in the mail. Looks like they were delayed by Royal Mail congestion and May Day weekend. Well, excited anyway. And I do have the files already. I may listen to those as soon as my ears have recovered from a two-week marathon of specialty radio programmes.
  13. Looks like I was coincidentally running with Mars. Heh.
  14. I have maybe something like 1000 vinyls from various genres. Unfortunately, right now they're on the bottom shelf behind my home office desk so photos of that general bunch would probably be quite boring. But maybe I could dig out some selected picks for inspiration, because they do have that certain visual appeal...
  15. My earlier post also went through quite slowly. I don't know if it's related to the amount of embedded content, the sheer number of posts, or something completely different. (Personally I prefer text-only with links. It's more convenient to open multimedia content to new tabs anyway.)
  16. It was kind of self-released, also in here...
  17. Looks like that failed fast.
  18. I got Mantra Move - Raven Dub this week. I'd say it doesn't try anything particularly groundbreaking, but it's solid and enjoyable for casual listening. I've probably cooked a few dinners to it already. Also, I still have a pile of Suntrip backlog to go through...and a few pending disco, synthwave etc. orders to make...but maybe some time too for listening now when everything is cancelled and closed?
  19. It's right there in the description. Young people don't read any more, I guess.
  20. Well, we have a grand total of 82 people hospitalised and 22 in intensive care in the whole country. Even at that point the recommendation is "don't come if you can still breathe, just stay home and try to recover by yourself". So, not very surprising that people who come to ER cannot breathe. There's quite a bit of selection bias there. However, things are definitely going titsup in Italy. That I won't deny.
  21. Have you seen Hero (2002) and does it count as a fairy tale?
  22. Sounds familiar. I'm doing R&D. I have all my gear in here and enough room for another office-like setup. In a sense, there are even fewer distractions now. Of course, some daily routines like commuting and lunches have changed, but the work itself isn't that different. Most of it happens digitally anyway. I guess we have it really easy. All hobbies and events involving physical presence have been cancelled. To be frank, I'm almost relieved right now. A forced short break from everything can be healthy if you've been doing too many different things, but after several months it probably starts to get infuriating and/or depressing. We just had the annual meeting of one club (now arranged online). The unsurprising key conclusion was that we're basically screwed with the rent if everything remains closed and consequently there's no income from monthly usage fees and such. This obviously applies to many companies, clubs and individuals. Event organisers can also be truly SOL if they're acting responsibly and cancelling the event, while the venue still argues that there's no categorical ban and therefore no refund for anything. For a couple of semi-coincidental reasons, I'm mainly eating old dry goods from a cupboard which couldn't even hold any new hoarding. There's time for all-day slow cooking if I'm in the mood for that. The contrast between the tranquility here and the apocalypse reported by shit tabloid media is striking. Now I should have plenty of time to listen to music and to reorganise my old stuff. My brain just hasn't fully adjusted to this new, weird situation. It probably happens over time, though, because right now it looks like the minimum span of this remote working will be one month. Could be more, who knows. We'll see.
  23. That's just incredibly shitty luck. I've had a couple of events and trips cancelled too but thanks to sheer luck, procrastination and finally caution, I hadn't paid a penny for them yet. Right now there's just the sudden, eerie emptiness in my schedules for the whole spring and maybe summer. (OK, also a thing or two with investments but let's not discuss that.) It's totally fine and natural to feel frustrated (to put it very mildly). However, I'd also suggest not blaming anyone too much. Yes, poor decisions have been made here and there, but right now we don't have that many really good ones available either, because things are going pear shaped in general. Some agencies and hotels have been generous with their rescheduling options so I can simply hope that at least something can be recouped that way. If you ever get a second chance, let's see what we can do.
