on music and camels:
The other day I was looking for a song from Muslimgauze called "A Camel Is For Life".
"A Camel Is For Life" is part of the intimidating 'Box of Silk and Dogs'.
The song is a chill, loopy, beat driven piece that has an observing-from-a-distance feel to it (it is set within some nice texture that could easily be mistaken for surface noise if played from vinyl). It ultimately grows into a distorted, loud, shaky mess (moving from far-away to far-too-close), eventually falling back again to the distance for a moment.
I really love the feel of the song but unfortunately cannot find it posted to share.
In the process of looking for it, however, I came across two more songs with the loose connection of having "camel" in the title — both also very interesting in the mood they create.
The first is a bonus track from Nurse With Wound’s fantastic release 'Man With The Woman Face’. "Camel Be Air” is a long, immersive, smokey, lounge-ish piece (perhaps with a hint of exploding-frogs).
The second is "Lunar Camel”, a very sparse, electro-leaning piece from Siouxsie and the Banshees that creates quite the mood.
…one hump or two…
