    Warchalking – Diplomancy INTERVIEWS, QUIXODELIC RECORDS, RELEASES, WARCHALKING | (1)
    Free download: warchalking.bandcamp.com Having previously impressed us with two original one-man-acoustic-rock-soundscapes, 2007's self-titled and 2008's much loved "Stratum", Warchalking seemingly vanished from our airwaves. Now, five years on, he's back, and this time he's got a backing band behind him. The driving forces behind the songs are the same - sagacious wordsmithery for the mind and boozy guitar riffs for the body - but the volume has been cranked up to the maximum. Essentially this set-up sounds like potential fulfilled, foot to the floor, windows down, squeezing every last drop of daydreamer gasoline from the tank. It could quite conceivably have been ...

    DEAD CANARIES – For A Warmer Winter COZY HOME, DEAD CANARIES, INTERVIEWS, QUIXODELIC RECORDS, RELEASES | Comments Off
    Download it at: deadcanaries.bandcamp.com/releases Hey, what the f**k is going on? First we get the coldest March in 50 years, then apparently they find traces of life on Pluto, and now we have another Dead Canaries album, only 7 months after arguably the most underrated record in human history (Bird Peach) was released? To get to the bottom of this mystery, the DG asked our finest (see also "only") roving rogue reporter (a.k.a "me") to download "For A Warmer Winter" and track down the elusive conductor of the Dead Canaries, one Mr. Jon Fink, to find out what all the fuss is about. DG: ...

    Interview: Lenn9o9n INTERVIEWS, LENN9O9N, QUIXODELIC RECORDS | (2)
    And so to boldly go where no obscure lo-fi music blog has gone before: an interview with David Charleston aka Lenn9o9n. You've heard the music (see 'Relining Coffins' below) now have a sneak peek through the keyhole into the brain of the man behind it... DG: Probably an obvious question, but where did the inspiration for the name Lenn9o9n come from? "One after 909" is one of the first songs he wrote as a teenager. I don't idolize him, I just empathize with his ambitions, torment, love, anger. DG: When did you start writing music and why? 2003. I think the Brian Eno quote ...

    FailedSitcom FAILEDSITCOM, INTERVIEWS, QUIXODELIC RECORDS | Comments Off
    Say hello to the newest member of the Quixodelic Collective - FailedSitcom. You may have stumbled across his unique blend of folk and electronic beats over at CLLCT, or even caught the really cool 'Mortlake' on DG8. But for those of you who haven't heard of him (and even for those of you who have), I threw some pretty random questions his way to find out a little bit more. DG - Where did you get the name FailedSitcom from? FS - It comes from a song called “The Toss and Turn” by the rapper Pedestrian, there’s a line in it where ...
