Smash TV Bits For Breakfast

At this point you’ve heard of the BPitch label.
If you haven’t… well I’m not exactly sure who that’s possible.
Logic dictates that you’ve read a magazine or website in the
last year. Anyway, Smash TV’s latest I picked up the other day
and am digging. Kinda electro (disco at times ala Daniel Wang
or Legowelt) pop. It’s a shame none of these labels are going
the direction Warp did, marketing this shit to indies, but hey
all the better for you DJ something or not, keeps the tunes from
going stale when !!! and The Rapture just ain’t cutting it anymore.

Don Cherry & Kryzystof Penderecki – Actions

Just remembered this one because
was talking to someone about Pendereki.
Ye olde, and legendary, collaboration between
the serialist and the free-worldy-improviser

Still one of my favorites. Humus is as sweet as spiritual jazz’s
let’s throw every culture’s syncopation into jazz huzpath got
in the Cherry canon (I picked up MU part 1 & 2 the other day
another highlight) and Pendereki’s composition Actions just
makes the whole album shine. Indispensable jazz and good
fact towards nudging out the notion that Europe’s serious school
of composition couldn’t mix it with America’s free-spirited academy
of blowers. Also features Peter Brotzman on sax.
