20/5/2013 ‘Around The World’ and 27/5/2013 ‘Sea Of Sound’ tracklists

Later than planned, so late that central Europe seems to have slipped into autumn, the tracklists for two sonic journeys on The Kitchen Sink. The first took a little inspiration from Jules Verne, but instead of having 80 days to circle the globe a la Phileas Fogg, was restricted to just 60 minutes. Only one of Fogg’s stops, Japan, featured, and the point of embarkation wasn’t London, but a rather smaller city, Wels, in Upper Austria with a track from when Manfred Engelmayr was Bulbul:

    Not the most straightforward way of getting from Wels to Vienna, but one full of good sounds! Thanks due to Pino Montecalvo for the Bz Bz Ueu track, Susanna Gartmayer of Broken.Heart.Collector, and the folks at Eastern Daze for their sterling efforts in finding sonic gems from around Central and eastern Europe – help  much-appreciated!

That long atmospheric piece from two Latvian musicians who performed to a small, but rapt, audience in Brno a few weeks ago, brought the sonic tour of the Baltic states to an end. This time, thanks were due to Piotr Kurek, Richard Deutsch of Quora, Tobiasz Bilinski of Kyst, Obstacles, and Von Spar -all of whom, like Ivars Arutyunyan and Edgars Rubenis, have helped warm the ears, and possibly hearts, of Brno concert-goers over the past few years!

Til next time, wishing you all many a sonic treat, S.
