Download(s) of the Week: Diogenes Music
Thanks once again to friend & colleague Stephen Mejias for pointing me to this oasis among what can seem like a veritable sea of sultry breathy vapidity—Diogenes Music Digital Home for Experimental Music. I was dreaming about something exactly like this for some time, the kind of music I buy on LP but cannot find via download, so this site is literally a fulfilled desire. Some of the labels represented include Alga Marghen, alt.vinyl, Bo' Weavil, Dekorder, Fonal, Incus Records, Machinefabriek, MISF*TS, MonotypeRec, No-Fi, Ping Pong Productions, Presto!?, Singing Knives, Staubgold, Ultra Marine, and many more. A veritable freakin' gold mine for the mind.
I recommend browsing and listening at your leisure as there are very generous bits of most if not all (I didn't have time to check every release) tracks.
I can easily spend the rest of the day just browsing the Diogenes Music website
listening and dreaming. critically listening to cables. It's a tough job but someone has to do it!
