Up Up, and Away

It's taken me a long time to get these two tracks out from under my needles, so at long last:

Luftkluster/Luftfluks is the latest alias under which Nina Canell and Robin Watkins (or canell&watkins) have been operating. Their music has always been close to my heart, from the fey pop of Cat & Dog Dialogue to last years more experimental New Heat/Obscured By Light opus. I particularly like the ramshackle, almost on the verge of breaking, sound which they manage to shape into songs for you and me. It's also kind of refreshing to hear a kind of electronic music being made without a computer chip in sight (no disrespect to computers). Anyone who lives in the Dublin area should make every attempt to check out their live show, which is definitely one of the better things going on, particularly when pared with a skinny wolves night.

Stand On The Word comes from the Larry label, about which any information is nigh on impossible to find. As far as I can intuit all they release are unbelievable heavenly bangers that leave you wondering why the nuns never made you sing like this in school. Recorded in good old 1982, at -thank you Boomkat- the First Baptist Church in Crown Heights, New York City by the Celestial Choir. Released only among the congregation, some pioneering dj managed to get his hands on it and bring the good news to us.

Just wanted to say "thanks" for posting this. I was honored to be part of this recording when I was 12 years old and didn't even know that it was being sold. I am sure that Pastor Norman and members of First Baptist don't know it either. Anyhoo, thanks for posting.
