Geographic North’s releases all have a certain vibe about them, a life-improving vibe
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 3:31pm The Oscar:

One time I was out for dinner with a group of friends (all past and present record store clerks), and this moody semi-spoken piece was playing, and we were all going crazy trying to figure out what it was-- it sounded like Bat For Lashes, but more creepy and dissonant. Eventually we realized we were hearing two songs at once: "Past Present and Future" by the Shangri Las playing in the dining room, and "Black Hole" by Beck spilling out of the kitchen. It worked so well!
Avatar 3:32pm djsheilab:

Mike W—I don't think I've heard their other releases. But I'm a big fan of Carmen Villain. She went from dream-pop to full on ambient.

If you don't have that, we're enjoying a Bronx right now: 2 oz. gin, .25 sweet verm, .25 dry verm., 1 oz. OJ, dash orange bitters (if you have 'em). Shake, strain, kick back mainland style!

sorry, not at michael z, at Brian. Youze folks type so much lol
Avatar 5:22pm djsheilab:

Here's the scoop!

Justine and the Victorian Punks was a collaboration between Justine, AKA Colette, a French-Tunisian performance artist living in New York, and Peter Gordon's Love of Life Orchestra, a stylistically omnivorous, pop-loving ensemble of avant-garde musicians. Gordon hung out with Beefheart in LA, met Harry Partch through his father, and had his mind blown open by Terry Riley; settling in New York in 1975, he met Arthur Russell and Rhys Chatham and proceeded to immerse himself in the downtown scene surrounding the Kitchen, an experimental performance space where Russell was musical director.

βrian:I'm sans car, and the nearest Jamaican restaurant, is about 25 km away. But, yes, except for anyone else w/in 100 km from the Gulf coast
