Team SGTMT have had a fun-packed day.
This afternoon was spent at the BFI London IMAX gawping openmouthed at the movie Samsara. 100-minutes of beautifully shot 70mm film showing the most extraordinary sights this planet has to offer, including Tibetan monks’ rituals, erupting volcanoes, Japanese sex doll factories and weird apocalyptic footage of animals being slaughtered and prepared for being munched by humans. What a film.
We emerged blinking into the light and set off for another stupidly long run in aid of our healthkick which is still in full swing. During said run we listened to a podcast which did what great podcasts should do; leave us with a list of 5 or 6 artists to investigate or revisit. Glorious.
(When we’re grown-ups and SGTMT is world famous, we’ll have a podcast which is lapped up by thousands of adoring listeners every month and we’ll be aiming for the same benchmark. We will.)
One of the artists we discovered today is Deaf Center and their three-year old Pale Ravine LP, particularly White Lake which is the most glorious piece of instrumental electronica we’ve heard in ages:
Deaf Center are Erik Skodvin and Otto Totland and Pale Ravine is the follow-up to their Neon City EP which was apparently critically acclaimed – we’d better get investigating that then.
There’s an interesting discussion on the origins of the record, Deaf Center’s influences and more here, which we won’t bother regurgitating but urge you to peruse, before listening to the rest of the LP here.
