WOMEN

//this was the 2nd album i ever posted on this blog. i love it so much that I decided to post it again. here is the post:


Women - Women (2008)

...in a mixture of hypnotic noisy instrumentals and almost melodic pop songs, the s/t album by Canadian group Women, is, selon moi, by far the greatest and most innovative album to come out of Canada.

"The debut album by Women was recorded by label-mate Chad VanGaalen over 4 months on ghettoblasters and old tape machines in his basement, an outdoor culvert and a crawlspace. Sometimes light and spacious, at other times eerie and dense with an ominous weight, this self titled album touches upon Velvet Underground, The Zombies or This Heat while not really having any obvious precursors – a lo-fi masterpiece cloaked in layers of vibrato and guitar wash." flemish eye

Here I give you a chance to listen to one the hardest album to find on the web, ungooglable.. (have you ever tried to google Women...?) "

** RxRy **

RxRy - RxRy (2010) ------> unreleased yet, shared for free by the dude himself

Amusingly, there has been some strange webrumors spreading like garlic butter. Rumors that Noah Lenxox (aka: panda bear), has been secretly releasing material incognito, via the pen name RxRy. These rumors have been falsified, thanks to BUTTER x FACE.

(not noah, but still playing hard to get)

I guess it was initiated because the dude is pretty mysterious and has panda bear in his myspace friend. the material released by RxRy does not ressemble in any way Person pitch. Young Prayer even less. But by no means does this mean that it's not worth a listen. Far
from that, the shit is great. As far as ambient goes, it might just be
the single greatest release of 2010. I'm hooked/got it stuck on repeat.
Hell! I even dance to it.

Keep up with it. It's been saucy.
