In the beginning: Nearly Comfortable Vol.1

December 27, 2009

Well this is all very exciting, after a nudge from friend I have dipped my toe into the blogosphere, and not without some intrepidation. Not sure how this blogging lark will turn out but it gives me a place to put my compilations ‘n stuff.

This is the first comp I have put together for quite some time and will be part of a series called Nearly Comfortable. It takes the same ethos as the club night I used to run in Reading many years ago (kraked where I used to play as Mikerak) in that it is generally music for sitting and listening to while not being what most would refer to as ‘chillout’. You will not find any ethno-dub-chillax music on these comps, more likely it will be a mix of electronica, post rock, post metal, postman’s blues, plink plonk thunder, 7-step, under-bang, downcore, moosick and touch of acid skiffle.

Hope you enjoy
