Trip-hop and ambient/psychedelic/electronic pioneer Michael Kandel, of Tranquility Bass, has died at 47. For the next (several) evenings you will find me listening to his records, both old and new. Unbeknownst to me, he'd been releasing stuff fairly frequently on his Bandcamp page (clicky) after a lengthy mid-to-late '00s hiatus. You can also find much of my favorite album of his, Let the Freak Flag Fly, on youtube.
