Tons of jazz. All you have to do is go to any cigar bar. They generally have live music every night. Did you ever see Lost in Translation? That bar (New York Bar & Grill in the Park Tower) will always have some type of performer. They generally do 2-3 month stints. Meduro in Roppongi Hills (just went the other night), Tableaux in Daikanyama. They're almost always foreigners though, although sometimes living in Japan.

One of my current faves, even though it's old:

Yeah, great stuff. I've been listening a lot to old techno and Detroit-ish electro lately. For instance, I've been exploring Drexciya and the tens of different aliases they use, including their ventures into almost frightening ambient stuff.

I made a muxtape with some highlights from them, it samples some of their different styles. First track is a 12 minute sound paradise. Listen: http://drexciya.muxtape.com/

I got something recently which was great, and like a dipshit forgot to write about it. There's been a few things actually, but just been busy. I did hit a bit of a stump though where I got a lot of things that are just "very good"... not quite enough to rave about. Maybe I'll be dazzled later.

Have you heard Blonde Redhead's 2007 album '23', GP? If not, get on it. Awesome album.

Highly recommend Gas - Nah und Fern
Small box set with all four of their albums reissued. Been listening to it for the last few days and it's pure bliss. ;)

4AD is still putting stuff out? Didn't know that. I used to live for This Mortal Coil. Just hated all the goth morons that you get lumped together with.

I thought I had a Gas album here somewhere, but apparently I was mistaken.

Yeah, 4AD still pumps out records, and has put out some great stuff over the years: Dead Can Dance is a fave of mine, along with Lush and Mojave 3.

I think "Misery is a Butterfly" was better. "23" isn't too bad though.

Anyone like pretty, hypnotic, acoustic guitar noodling? If so check out James Blackshaw's new album "Litany of Echoes". I have all of his albums and the new one is among the best.

I downloaded Hammock's Maybe They Will Sing For Us Tomorrow a few weeks ago. It's very nice. Ambient guitar. Sounds like really, really mellow Cocteau Twins.

Herrmann & Kleine: Our Noise (this isn't even that new) is something I stumbled across and it is simply amazing.

Nice choices, GP. I'll have to check out that Hammock record, I just have their 'Kenotic' LP, which is pretty good.

If you like 'Our Noise' then look for 'Kickboard Girl EP'. It's fantastic. These guys only did a few collaborations. They've got some solo stuff that's also good, but these two are tops.

Herrmann & Kleine is good stuff, very light and relaxing.

One of my favorite light/relaxing ambient albums is Mum's - Finally We Are No One

Yeah, got that one. I can't seem to get into it unless it's the winter though. Something about the mood.

I'm not sure, but try some To Rococo Rot for more lightly goodness.

Awesome live version of Song to the Siren.
Weee

This is really old, as it's before Liz Frazier started looking somewhat goofy and overly androdgenous... or however the fuck you spell that word. This also illustrates what a rockin' voice she has, as it is comparable to her studio voice. Great tune. Been listening to it for years.

Cocteu twins are decent but I'll never like them as much as MBV
