<p>It's been a while. So, by "popular" request...</p>
Kaito: Trust
Melodic, progressive techno, with a mid-90s trance feel. For sunny weekends only.
The Black Dog: Further Vexations
Dark, moody, beat-driven electronica with moments of subtle beauty. It’s a long way from 1993-era Bytes.  
B12: Archive Volume 7
This, however, is not a long way from 1993.  Remixes and unreleased material from one of my favourite early-Warp era bands. There are also volumes 1-6 to buy if you’re a B12 completist.
B12: Last Days of Silence
No-one told me they released a new album in 2008.  Still square wave basses but heavier beats.
The Black Dog: Music for Real Airports
Soundtrack to a multimedia installation, and a much improved response to Brian Eno’s seminal ambient yawn from the 70s.
Extrawelt: Schöne Neue Extrawelt
Minimal German tech-house. Klar.
The Faun: Ninety Eight LP
Mad dubstep. At night, up loud.

iPad music apps

<div>

Some of the planned iPad music apps like thisthis and this look great.  Sure, there are other tablets out there, but, like iPhone apps, no-one is devoting the energy to doing ones that look and feel like these. Yet another reason why I think the iPad will be a both game changer, and successful, and not just for music.
