22/7/2013 ‘YOU!!’ & 29/7/2013 ‘2013-SOFARSO’ tracklists

Summertime, and the living, at least in a small flat, ain’t easy; however, early morning, when there’s still a touch of freshness in the air, perceptible through an open window, and the brightness outside doesn’t come with squint-inducing rays of sunlight, it’s at its friendliest. The body isn’t producing sweat like a BB-pocked can of pop; the brain isn’t feeling like something Fred Flintstone might bludgeon into shape. That said, the temperature is rising, so it’s time to get down to the facts which matter, the playlists from the last two editions of The Kitchen Sink. Starting with ‘YOU!!’; so many choices, but finally the following diverse bunch adorned the sonic menu:

10)GNOD – The Choice Of A Nubian Generation /from the ‘Lay Low’ split cassette with Bear Bones/ Full Of Nothing 2013
A lengthy atmospheric piece to finish with on a night when lightning flashed in the distance but the almost apocalyptic storms expected, and hitting other parts of the country, somehow gave Brno nothing more than a tantalising, brief downpour to soften the air.
Thanks due this time to Stephen Jarvis of Nagamatzu, Christine Chra Nemec of Comfortzone, Pino Montecalvo of Music a la Coque, and Piotr Kurek – help, as ever, much-appreciated!
Until next time, wishing anyone perusing this many a refreshing sonic delight, S.
