Ernest Hood

This is a great record. Private electronics and zither over Folkways style field recordings. It is said that Ernest Hood blacked out his car windows so that he could record conversations on the street secretly. Sounds like a languid Canadian documentary about youth culture...

Teresa Winter

Listening to Teresa Winter. So nice. A heady cocktail of echoey 4ad-style voices and bedroom beats and bended circuits. Like how I wish Nite Jewel or Julia Holter sounded. Seriously, such a welcome tonic for these frostbit ears. You can download her Seven Sisters cassette here, and look out for a new tape called Oh Tina No Tina out soon on Reckno. Clip below, and more here.

Staying Power

Fantastic photo show at the V&A. I see the first picture a lot -- it's in a book on my desk -- and I've been looking at it a lot this week. Something about it.

Diario di una schizofrenica (1968)

Reminds me a bit of this but still very pretty, and based on a real life account.
