Daimon Orchestra -- ピルグリム (Pilgrim)
Dada Gauguin 「ムンク」Munch
On a whim. Songs from the olden days, or 2019 as it was known. Doesn’t include the ones I’ve forgotten.
Edited highlights. Some good joins. And one dreadful one that sneaked past quality control.
A good attempt by Language to miss out by releasing on 31st December and a special mention for Stefanie Schrank’s mastering engineer who didn’t just reach for the look ahead limiter.

A number of the bands have more active Facebook pages but I do have a few remaining principals.
Looking back at what I listened too in 2019 it appears the random algorithm in my music player has a large bias to the Del Vikings.
More representative The Motors make the top five tracks with a pukka pop song.
But op of the tracks was from a little more recently: Frog by ハイスピード瞬き.
Trying to sort out anything else is somewhat thwarted by the bands with the most releases coming high up by law of averages. And having combined the entire Django Rheinhardt Chronolgoical series into one album of 300 tunes blots out all other contenders.
I’m hanging on a bit for the best of this year’s releases as I wouldn’t want to be caught out by any late comers.
Bugger. Neil Innes has died.
“I’ve suffered for my music and now it’s your turn”.
Another in the occasional series.
Possibly the only successful attempt at finding a sympathetic setting for the Korg Hatsune Miku guitar pedal.
As played by Joe Gore.
Notable for lack of the eponymous.
It’s not often these days that a video adds to the music but this, to my mind, is an exception. Indeed I wonder if the music can stand apart. We shall find out.
From their august album released in August.
