Victor Wooten interview, at 42:15 he starts to talk about his approach to the current situation. Simple words but very worthwhile to hear

My mind is blown... had no clue Mononeon played with Prince and Judith Hill at Paisley Park

Japanese web design for desktop (at least entertainment-focused stuff I've seen) is interesting... they always make you wait and load a ton of resource hungry assets but the payoff is often striking, unique, and unlike what you'll see anywhere else (hit play, hit skip on the bottom right, then try scrolling down)

Nakata deep cut of the day: Perfume - Lyric Analysis

Was surprised when this section started live. Nakata sampling himself and adding a chilled cow style beat is interesting given current trends and I wonder if it's indicative of a directional shift in what he'll produce next (I would totally be on board) or if it was a one-off to say yeah ok cool I could do this style if I wanted, here's a token minute and a half of it

Wow having so much there just makes the ones still missing tilt me! Music Controller slaps. Natsumelo has gems if you look for em. Star Train's updated Imitation World single is a huge statement of how much he developed. Hope the gaps get filled in someday but this just shows how I'll never really be able to rely on music streaming services that don't let you fill in the gaps with your own files.

WOW, it's all really there. Most of the rest of the major works of Yasutaka Nakata are live on your music streaming service of choice (Perfume and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu albums were up already). One of the most impressive discographies in history.

Ok, now dig in and start listening and join me in trying to even wrap your brain around the fact that a single person wrote & produced all these albums in 20 years

Long bet on how long till substack posts accessed blog post style are caked in intrusive pop-ups to subscribe/sign up a-la medium?

I give it 3 yrs max

Along with colte monikha and the Liar Game OST (some of which is new to me!!)

And in light of that, Nakata deep cut of the day - Liar Game OST 2 - Edit

CAPSULE’s entire back catalog hits music streaming services Friday!!!! \o/ \o/ \o/

Absolutely elated to hear about the campaign to start this new venue in Minneapolis it was only a matter of time. India has been pretty quick to recognize foreign actors attempting to take advantage (like smartly blocking Facebook's predatory attempt to roll out free Facebook-controlled internet access)

IMO this is one of the most important geopolitical moves in human history. Curious to see now the response, if it lasts, long-term impact on Indian social media, what nations follow suit, the extent to which google/apple get caught in the middle, etc.

Wow, TIL there's an entire album of Hendrix demo material just sitting around waiting to be released
