My MacBookPro wound up in the Mac hospital this week, getting its brain replaced with a new HD, so updates on the Discontent blog have been 100% invisible. More coming soon once the silver dream machine returns to its rightful home. I did find time to upload an old Fat Planet mixtape from 2005 at stuartbuchanan.com – download the zip file with music from Stacs Of Stamina, Enduser, Nettle, Konono No.1 and more.

It might well be Mardi Gras in the city of sin this weekend, but there’s plenty of non-fluroescent activity to be had.  I played a new track from the forthcoming Pimmon album ‘Smudge Another Yesterday’ ahead of his gig tomorrow night, playing with Grouper (U.S.) and Seaworthy at Serial Space (info).  Also tmrw, Starkey plays with Halfcast, Semper Fi, Victim, Farj and Moriarty at Phoenix Bar in Oxford Street (info) – tonight’s track ‘Let You Go’ can be found on his 2007 EP, ‘NC-17’ (buy at Boomkat).  Next week, Pivot are covering their tracks, billing themselves as ‘Fire Island’ for a pre-tour farewell appearance at the Hopetoun with Seekae, Wednesday 11th March from 8pm (info).

For those not quite in the know, Disorient has a blog sibling called Discontent.  You can find it at www.discontentblog.com.  This week, there’s downloads of some of the tracks from tonight’s show: the tunes from These Are Powers & Lloop – plus mp3 takeaways from Gouseion, Mutamassik, Artemis Jackson, YSLE, Prefuse 73 and Fol Chen (remixed by Liars).

On this week’s DISORIENT: Iraq’s DJ Foundation gets into bed with Sydney’s Computadors; there’s a preview of the new EP from Clark; Israel’s Kalbata team up with Jamaican MC Warrior Queen and Hyperdub’s dubstep girl Ikonika treats South Africa’s DJ Mujava to a low-end remix of ‘Township Funk’. Plus this week’s ‘Disorientation Session’ mixes tracks from Rich Panciera, one of the early players in the original ‘Illbient’ scene, including tracks from his brand new album under his Lloop guise, titled ’60 Hertz’.
