February 12, 2010 Playlist - EXTRA LONG FOUR-PLUS HOUR SHOW

"Brocade" by Landing (2005)
Landing  "Brocade"  2005 (USA)
This week's CAOTW is a fine unsung gem from the past decade, the sixth full-length album by Connecticut-based group Landing.  A delightful combination of krauty grooves and synthesizer bliss-outs, this is simply an outstanding collection of tasty sounds that have timeless appeal.  Down the road it may become considered a classic.  The band hasn't been very active since this record came out, due to two of the members starting a family.  But their website is still active, and there are hints of more Landing music to come:  Landing official website.
I couldn't find any video of Landing, so here's some other stuff on the show this week:  a listener requested some Silver Apples (this latter day video only features surviving member Simeon.)  Continuing last week's "best of the decade" theme, here's the fine contemporary Texas dark-psych band The Black Angels.  Another great current heavy band is Canada's Black Mountain.  Finally here's Madison tapes & noise merchant Loop Ret@rd.
