ha ha, you know, on my way to work I wanted to have an Ozrics day, it's monday, it has to be a good one, but then I remember I don't have the correct USB stick with my cd rips with me ... and then I see your bandcamp post
Eat Static - Dead Planet. Merv will do an ES gig in Athens in May and I've finally decided to listen to it. I really like it, both the uptempo and the downtempo stuff. Hopefully he won't go fully mental and pummel our heads with a lot of noise but balance it out a bit and play a little of everything. I'm probably a bit more open minded than I was when I saw them in 2002 too, so hopefully I'll come out of the gig with a new appreciation for ES, which though eclectic I don't rank them/him among my favourite. Hope he plays a tune or two from the Planet Dog days.
Had a look at their Soundcloud page, there are a couple of unreleased tunes there. Chakra Tuning is droney and Pumpernickel seems to be a version of the Saucers jam they did on the 2010 tour, really liking that one. link

Pity they haven't made more tracks available to listen to on Bandcamp - only the last one. I know it's a 25 minute track but I wanted to get a feel for the album overall. Chickens in the Mist is an older number, revamped I take it? How 'dancey' is the album would you say?
Chickens is nearly identical to the Spacelines version. The dancey aspect is a matter of perception. There are beats on all tracks but especially the long ones have some proper weird parts. You get a download if you buy the album. If you're on Soulseek you can have a listen to the whole album.

Silas Neptune - The Scales of Tahuti
It is taking turns with The Cozmic Key. Both are great but if I had to choose then The Scales of Tahuti would be my favorite. The latter seems to be more carefully produced although it is a bit heavy on the bass drums, but not in a dancey kind of way. Well, unless you are an odd legged myriapod.
Neither of them seems to be particularly catchy, they seem to need quite a few listens to register for me. I'm not going to rush judgement though, I'll try to let them sink in for a while. Silas' album is a lot more layered for sure, but TCK is very reminiscent of old school live Nodens in style, with only a few gigantic tracks, although it doesn't sound like old Nodens; it's a lot more contemporary sounding.
