Changing pace a little, also back to memories from yesteryear, a song with rather poetic lyrics by the 1980's Spanish synth-pop/new wave group Mecano

Mecano - "Son of the Moon." Live concert with English subtitles (the song may have been covered later by Sarah Brightman, I hear)

Mecano - hijo de la luna + english subtitles

I've been listening to Heather Dale's "Ten Feet Tall" a lot recently. It's pretty awesome: Ten Feet Tall by Heather Dale with Lyrics

Seeing as my primary cd/record player/tape deck finally called it quits today, after a grand service life of 30 years, I'm not listening to anything right now!

Have to shift my bedside cd unit out into the mainstream, & hunt around for a new stereo radio/cd/record/tape player.

Have to shift my bedside cd unit out into the mainstream, & hunt around for a new stereo radio/cd/record/tape player.

I'm one of those weird people who likes to match old technology to new.  Since I was a teenager I had a collection of stereo systems and such.  I still have a tape deck and an early 1980's Garrard (Gradiente) stereo, but I kept on going with miniDisc, CD, mp3-capable players, digital players of all sorts and finally high grade computer sound cards.

I sorely miss the quality of yesteryears hardware, to be honest.  I'm very pleased with the acoustics of an iPhone by itself, but the docks available to amplify the sound are real bovine manure, so I tend to connect it to a 2000's decade Sony system or my Victorian Boombox which is based around a 2000's computer Altec Lansing subwoofer system.  I'm very picky with my sound.  Somehow portable sound hardware became synonymous with crappy sound and with the advent of the digital formats like mp3 and AAC, people became lazy and complacent about sound quality altogether.

Today I fight that effect by marrying high quality digital equipment to old fashioned analog amplifiers


Anyhow, I was listening to groups dating back to my early years, in particular, Mecano, a somewhat corny Spanish synthpop /new wave/rock band from the 1980's (that you would have never caught me listening to back then when I was a teenager, but eventually grew on me), but I came across this particular song written by them, in which the band members go back to their national roots with a Flamenco style song in lieu of their pop style.  I think for the cover of one of their albums.  I thought it was a good interpretation of Flamenco (live concert in 1991)

Mecano - Una rosa es una rosa (directo - 1991)

The dogs of La Manzanilla, Jalisco, singing their eerie music; first one begins yipping, then another joins in, then another, until the whole neighbourhood echoes with high-pitched yips, yaps and yowls, for several minutes; then all is silence again, except for the distant Pacific surf. What sets them off? Who knows? A cat, perhaps, or an iguana? Or just an irresistible urge to sing?

Is it some kind of canine conference? Choir practise? Or an attempt to communicate with entities unguessed at by mere humankind? Whatever, it is a music not meant for human ears. Perhaps they await answering howls from the canine denizens of some distant planet orbiting Sirius, the Dog Star; or, perhaps, a reply from the droopy-eared inhabitants of Pluto, in our own star system, indignant at the demotion of their home world to mere Dwarf Planet status.

We can only surmise, and listen whether we will or no.

Athanor.
Vero vobis dico, qui quaerit, inveniet eius. Et saepius, parum volet.

"Truly I say to you, he who seeks, shall find. And quite often, he shall wish he hadn't."

I'm currently listening to a few advance mixes and bonus tracks from 'Sunday Driver' taken from, or related to, the forthcoming EP (Free downloads for pledgers).
'The Gin Song / Third Class Coffin' , the excellent latest vinyl single from 'The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing'.
'Outside The Box (Original Mix)' by 'Professor Elemental'.
The latest album from 'The Cog Is Dead'.
The new one by 'Birthrite',
New releases by the latest line-up of 'Ghostfire'.
'Elegy (Single Mix) by 'Vernian Process.'
The 'Can't Stop, Shan't Stop' LP from 'Mr.B The Gentleman Rhymer'.
'Alamo Rising (Book Soundtrack)' by 'Escape The Clouds'.
The debut album by German Steampunks 'The Violet Steam Experience'.

And lots and lots of new 'Steampunk' related sounds found just by searching YouTube.

Time to prepare another compilation to play in my new car I think. :)

I just had the strangest case of Deja Vu while watching that video. The wackest part is at the 2:00 mark.
