I’m a bit behind with my showing off slash keeping track list of recent acquisitions. This one was supposed to go online a week ago.
New list is coming up in a couple days.
Beck – Gamma Ray
  [b/w Bonfire Blondes] – DGC 7″ 2008
  See here.
Beck – Gamma Ray
  [b/w Gamma Ray Jay Reatard Version] – DGC 7″ 2008
La Captura del Sonido – V/A
   [gatefold sleeve, 2CD] – Lovemonk CD 2008
  CD I got from my future colleagues. It’s a fine selection of songs that according to the sleeve notes captures the spirit of the La Captura del Sonido radio show from Ibiza, hosted by Daniel Peñacoba who’s also compiled this disc.
Gareth Dickson – Gareth Dickson
  Gareth Dickson CD 2008
  Saw this guy playing a fifteen minute set as a warm-up for Juana Molina at the Arenberg in Antwerp. Beautiful, beautfiul music. His guitar play reminds me of Cocteau Twins sometimes. Which is nice. And yes, it’s a CD. I know I always say I don’t buy CDs but hey, if you want the music and it’s not on vinyl, you have to do the right thing and get it on CD. Even if you don’t own a CD usable player.
Gareth Dickson – Spruce Goose
  Sleeping Man CD 2005
Bing Ji Ling – Home
  [white label, promo] – Lovemonk 12″ 2008
  More homework from my future work place. Fine house and disco music, mixes by Tokyo Black Star, The Phenomenal Handclap Band and Blackjoy
Makala – Cartoon Tune
  [white label, promo] – Lovemonk – 7″ – 2008
  See here.
Juana Molina – Tres cosas
  [gatefold sleeve, 2LP] – Domino LP 2002
  The predecessor of Son. Wonderful music this lady makes. Wonderful.
Juana Molina – Un día
  Acqua CD 2008
  Her new album is another sure fire hit at luba’s. Too bad it’s not coming out on vinyl. Too bad? A fucking shame more like. I asked the people at Domino’s what’s up, but I get no answer. Now I was forced to buy the CD, and I don’t buy CD’s.
Limón & Nada – V/A
  [transparent white vinyl, 2×10″, promo] – Mono 10″ 2008
  More homework. This is one of the branding things the label uses its sublabel Mono for. It’s for some new drink by a big fruit juice producer. Pretty cool they put it out on a double 10″ though, and with a couple good tunes on it, too.
Marulasoul – V/A
  [gatefold sleeve] – Lovemonk CD 2009
  Marula is one of the places I like to go to when in Madrid at night. Classy place where they play very decent music. This CD is one in a series of collaborations between my future bosses and the club.
Open Foraina & Jack Quiñonez – Fala Tanto
  Marulasoulfood 7″ 2008
  See here.
Soul Vigilantes – Background Noise (ft. Xan Blacq)
  [white label, promo] – Lovemonk 12″ 2008
  Yep! More homework. Edits and remixes by the great Pilooski and Pablo Sánchez, to be released in the next couple months.
Gecko Turner – Manipulado
  Lovemonk CD 2008
  While we’re waiting for his proper new album, Lovemonk released this collection of remixes of tracks from his previous albums.
Watch TV & The Lovemonk Allstars – Wild Safari (ft. Gene García)
  [white label, promo] – Lovemonk 12″ 2008
  Nice little afro-tinged dittie by Madrid-based Ruben García, with a remix by Metro Area’s Darshan Jesrani.
Jack White & Alicia Keys – Another Way to Die
  [gold-coloured vinyl] – XL 7″ 2008
  It’s kind of a weird track, I don’t think they fit too well together. Maybe it’ll turn out to be “an acquired taste”. But it’s on gold-coloured vinyl, so I bought it anyway.
Chip Wickham – Feel Alright
  [white label, promo] – Lovemonk 7″ 2008
  The man has worked with an impressive list of musicians and he’s a member of Malena. Funkin’ all over the place, this is.
