Farfisa Gravy Vol. 4

DJ Bylamplight is back with another box of sweaty, hair raising garage/psych stompers! It's a varied batch this time that cools you off after heavy rockers with some psych funk but not before dropping you into proto power pop territory and even a rare private synth rocker Twelve Hour Man by Mike Lucie. This Mike Lucie record is so elusive that Bylamplight can't even locate his copy anymore :( No idea where it went whatsoever. If you're looking for more Farfisa Gravy, you can still nab versions one, two, and three.

Open Your Heart And Let It Shine (House mix)

Between 1999 and 2004 I bought a lot of house records and honed my skills on the decks here in Chicago. I'd spend hours in shops like Gramophone rooting through mediocre four on the floor looking for the gems. All considering I'd say some amazing records were coming out, especially from the Chicago and San Fran scenes of the time on labels like Moody, Relief, Afterhours, Classic, Greyhound, and Panhandle. Just the other day I pillaged my shelves to see which tunes still had some mojo left after all these years. Quite a few! Here's a live mix with vinyl for ya; the blends are sloppy but, meh, it's all about the records. - DJ Bylamplight

Inland Knights -- Our Love
8fatfat8 -- Rise Up and Walk Mise En Place Remix
Ricky Bradshaw -- Black Keys (Filtered Jazz Mix)

7" Pinch - Lowdjo's Rattling Jukebox

Discrepant brings back the man responsible for the 7" Pinch, Brussels based DJ Lowdjo, for his second contribution to the series and 4th instalment for Discrepant.

And he's twisted it around again for us, after his previous 'marinade' of rare psych singles and glitchy modern twisters, Lowdjo now takes us to a crackling world of reeling weirdness. From the pristine field recordings of Chris Watson to the virtuoso finger-picking of the late Jack Rose, Lowdjo spins these plates like a possessed juke box diabolically planning its retirement party.

Forget CDs, LPs and MP3s and surrender with us, one more time, to the power of the 7" Pinch!


Chris Watson - Oceanus Pacificus (10m)
Mike Vainio - Behind The Radiators
D_rradio - Some Other Time
Colleen - Babies
Christian Fennesz plays Charles Matthews
Morgan Caney & Kamal Joory - Darling (rmx)
