If you are interested in the Krautrock movement here is an excellent bbc4 documentary (one of many) untitled "Kraurrock - The rebirth of Germany". It goes over the birth of Krautrock along with its iconic bands.
Highly recommended.

Can - Moonshake

The term Krautrock -meaning Dutch Rock- was first used by English journalist Ian McDonald in 1972 to define the emerging German scene after 1968, though most of the artists labeled under the krautrock flag refuse to have anything to do with it. Krautrock, all in all, included several bands that includes a huge range of different musical styles, and which were only similar in their attitude of creativity and experimentation. If there is a real common ground in all of this artists that may be the talent that they had to create their own music language with an extreme lack of resources, in a totally underground level, and in a country that was completely out of the commercial rock market. What really made all of these artists special is their capability to turn the handicaps into virtues and to accept their limitations, supplying them with creativity and talent.
Krautrock also represents the European legacy to modern electronic music. Artists such as Tangerine Dream, Neu! , Amon Duul, and Can were pioneers of electronic and synthesizer music in the early 70’s.

I am starting with Can but will upload some more Krautrock albums soon =)

Pavement - Wowee Zowee [1995] US
I thought of uploading this album when I saw that the band was on the Coachella's lineup this year, where I am planning on going. This album, though a little bit too long I think, is an excellent album of Indie American music in the 90's.
Probably their more accessible album.

Pavement - We Dance

NYC Melodies

Moondog - Bird's Lament

Moondog - Self Titled [1969]
New York City: same year, another album.
A nice mix of classical music, jazz, and percussion from his own invented instruments.
Though short in length, an interesting album: melodic and avant gardiste.

Game Of Loving

White Noise - An Electric Storm [1969] UK

Psychedelic/Electronic/Avant Garde
Partying in a club in Manchester a couple years ago, the DJ showed me that record and told me to listen to it.
1969, Delia Derbyshire is a genius. One of the most advanced electronic albums of its age.

Procrastination (2007)- Johnny Kelly [5min/UK/English/Color]

Soon I will start uploading stuff here, probably via megaupload.
I am working on it.


Egon Schiele stays my favorite painter. I should say the only painter I really got into and I read about after having seen an exhibition on Austrian expressionists in Paris. Along with Klimt and kokoschka, thieir masterpieces are what I would classify captivating and totally out of their time.
Above is one of Schiele's many self-portraits.
"The hermits" (1912), below, would symbolize Schiele's new departure after having been in Klimt's shadow for many years. Schiele appears in front of Klimt in this dark painting. Probably my favorite.javascript:void(0)

A couple days ago I was giving this song a good listen, thinking that it could take another dimension when listening to it in different circumstances.
Last Monday, a friend passed away. He was 24.
