Jacob Smigel's Eavesdrop project

EAVESDROP : a wealth of found sound (80 min. on one CD) Curated by Jacob Smigel.
Eavesdrop is a collection of anonymous recordings found by Jacob Smigel at thrift stores, yard sales, and in trash bins over the past four years. Smigel waded through audio or micro-cassettes, 8-Tracks and home-recorded records to find tape letters, telephone conversations, audio diaries, weird field recordings, amusement of children,fights/crying, etc...
Eavesdrop focuses exclusively on this type of material, and instead of adding music to the
clips Smigel served as preservationist (or curator) to present the listener with the most powerful recordings in their natural state. “Some are funny, some are ridiculous, others make no sense,” said Smigel, “and a few are so ‘perfect’ I can't believe I actually found them.”
Eavesdrop is 80 minutes, comprised of 40 tracks. The album includes 28 pages of track notes, transcripts, background information, and additional resources. Album art is a collage of found photos collected over the past two years. Each CD
is stuff with unique found things.

If you want to hear samples of the album or simply buy it, go HERE
. And now, please take a look at what i found in the package when i received the album HERE. Thanks Jacob !


Smoking Cigarettes

I've found this little hand-written paper in the street, here in Toulouse, and it's surprisingly written in english !

By the way, i should REALLY quit smoking !

I love my vinyl records

Rare, out of print, unusual records from the forgotten planet
This post is dedicated to all the vinyl addicts, i found faithful collectors publishing reviews about their own rare, strange and beautiful out-of-print records on the web, with precious informations or just personnal feelings and emotionnal comments. And often for your listening pleasure mp3s for free too ! (when the links have not been removed by some obscure internet copyright agency patrol, i doubt !).
So, here comes a spontaneous rough selection i've made tonight, my visits change quickly from one to another, partially because often when a new one open another one close.

Xtabay's World : a great music blog from Oceania, west of Krakatoa, dedicated to Exotica, Space Age Pop and Lounge. You can find archives of whole mp3 albums in .zip format (downloadable from RapidShare). Hope you'll enjoy your visit to the mysterious world of Xtabay. Good Hunting !
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------Rangeraver's Departure Lounge
"The place where good music lives"!
"I am sure you will find something to your taste! Please fasten your seat belt and ease into my selections of Groovy Lounge, Big Band Latin Bossa, Smooth Jazz, Kitsch Classics, Library Music and of course, Easy Listening Cocktail Muzak."

"Let's Fly !" RangeRaver.

Vinyl Vulture is a U.K. based website featuring selected interesting albums reviews : Library Music, Kraut rock, Soundtracks, hip-hop, funk ... They also run their own label Licorice Soul records : funk killer reissues on 45.

Waxidermy.com is a website dedicated to unusual vinyl oddities, compulsively collected by Ed Slavin and Jeff Hassett, soon followed by other contributors. I found interesting tips about the cleaning of dirty old records. Something great with all these websites is that you always find an album or artist you have never heard about before ... And of course you can download lots of MP3s for free there too.
The Tofu Hut
last blug not least)
Can you think of any albums that you would LIKE to see made illegal? (see related topic from 09/05/2005 here)

D. Bo is an anti-bush activist operating from his basement using his lyrics, internet, a printer, a Mc Hammer sample and a camera ! Oh yes, and here comes the video
He is selling his songs for 0,99$ , but there is also "
Songs I don't let you pay for, maybe because there's no music". L I T E R A L L Y : i found an html page with his songs' lyrics on it !!!
: P Thanks Tofu Hut.
If you want to learn more about collecting vinyl records, i received a mail today from Robert Benson, he has wrote an e-book about that topic, you can find it ,as well as many interesting articles about the vinyl culture, on his website collectingvinylrecords.com

I don't think it worked !"

Farewell Comfort Stand


netlabel special selection part#1

A bad news dropped in my mailbox from OTIS FODDER newsletter :
"I realize that this news comes on April Fools day, however this is no joke. After a two year and five month run, we have closed
COMFORT STAND(2003-2006)...
THE PROJECT IS OVER and we will no longer release new works. All of our music will remain online. Free and for a very long time."

COMFORT STAND is/was/still a very prolific NET LABEL with artists such as The Bran Flakes, Messer Chups, The Coconut Monkey Rocket, Martinibomb, Puyo Puyo, The Space Lady, Kim & Buran, Okapi, Fortyone, The Lounge King, Chenard Walker, Tapeworm Collective .... and many many more excentric artists playing all kinds of beautiful music.

The Comfort Stand philosophy :
" We are not a business. We're not out to make a profit. There are no banners, popups, or spam at Comfort Stand. You don't have to register yourself to download the music you like. We operate under the ideology that money need not come between artists and audience. "
