"*all*" by selected by Cracklin' Chim
from Walkathon Mix
Cracklin' was kind enough to do a guest mix for Viva Radio, listen to it here. Leftfield AM gold merging into synth abstractions, then re-emerging into sophistipop atmospherics. Good times, thanks Cracklin'.
"Edward" by Nicky Hopkins
from The Tin Man Was A Dreamer
Following up on Mother's post... the Floydian segment begins circa 1:35
"Black Cat Groove (Gauffie mashup)" by Janet Jackson vs. Ray Parker Jr. & Raydio
from The Internet
flexatones, agogo bells, carnival whistles... dub in some ambient party chatter and you'd have every festive sound known to man...
JANET JACKSON vs RAY PARKER JR & RAYDIO - Black Cat Groove (Gauffie mashup) by gauffie
"Gentle Was The Night" by Patrick O'Hearn
from Between Two Worlds
If any of the chims are lucky enough to be 20 years old, home from college for the summer, spending the weekdays mowing lawns but taking the day off to lie by the pool and fantasize about a girl you saw in a bikini at the taco stand the other day, and you live in Malibu and it's 1986, you might want to listen to this track.
"*all*" by Miharu Koshi
Intricate, Hosono-produced J-Pop insanity from 1984. Dig the title track for starters.
"Do You Know" by Helen Banks
"Figure" by El Tigre
Hey, didn't I hear this in a Thunderbals mix?
"Do I Have To?" by Inga Humpe
from Planet Oz
I wanted to change the "sounds best when" to "played in a classy barber shop", because this is the kind of clean and icy sound I like to hear when getting a $100 haircut. Trevor Horn and Thomas Fehlmann produced some of the other tracks on this 1990 LP, but this one (a Pet Shop Boys cover) is produced by Andy Richards.
Do I Have To?
"Lions In My Own Garden (Exit Someone)" by Prefab Sprout
I think Cracklin' Chim first turned me on to this band: thanks, bro. If you like surprising-but-ultimately-logical chord progressions, Paddy McAloon is your man. Full tablature in Paddy's own hand here! Apparently there are 17 different chords in this tune?
Lions In My Own Garden
"Tchaka Tchaka Zuktu" by Ayla Algan
For anyone looking to plug some gaps in the Barclay discography, I humbly offer this, from '78, produced by Yan Tregger. Some nice moments. Maybe an edit candidate?
