Electro-guitar soundscapes: I'm Not A Gun comes through again, this time with their album OUR LIVES ON WEDNESDAYS. Very blissful, very City Centre Offices. "Walk Through Walls" brings the guitars to the fore, while the quiet sweeps in "Off in the Distance" give that track a haunting quality. "Sundays Will Never Change" is beautifully dense, with the guitar shimmering on top of the watery surface like an oil slick, and the glitchy busyness of "Scenes of Someone Else" chatters away melodically. Generally, the rhythms here sound more natural, as if produced by actual musicians on actual instruments (although the calmly, looped rhythms of "Never Meant to Be" evoke a certain sadness). The organic/electronic mix skews slightly more towards the organic here, but the balance is still well maintained. Electro wins out on the final track, "Stable Soundwaves," but the track keeps morphing, changing shape. Wednesdays have never sounded so good.

Because DJ-ing is a such great passion to me, I'm constantly busy with house and related dance genres. Except for sunday evenings, no beats, just atmospheric, emotional postrock and electronica. Time to chill in a sofa with "Duyster", a program on Studio Brussel (Belgian 'alternative' radiostation). It's on this program I heard about "I'm not a gun". Man, I really got in a kind of cloudy emotional mood when I heard a song from the cd "Our Lives on Wednesdays", so beautiful. The bigger was my surprise when Ayco (she presents Duyster) told that driving force behind "I'm not a gun" was... John Tejada!!! (Off course together Takeshi Nishimoto) I couldn't believe my ears, kind of felt like the circle was round. Respect!!!
