Aphex Waits: Tom vs Computer Control mashed up by Esmko
March 1, 2015 7:44 AM   Subscribe

Eskmo took a few Tom Waits songs that he love and mashed them with Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments pt2 by Aphex Twin, and created Aphex Waits (Soundcloud with free DL; YouTube). If you'd like more weird electronic music from Eskmo, Dazed has a preview stream of his new album along with an interview about it. Then there's Eskmo's self-titled album on Grooveshark, which he released on Ninja Tune back in 2010, which lead to videos for Cloudlight [previously], We Got More [previously], and Color Dropping. He has also shared more music on Soundcloud.

^ Came here to say this, Tom Shall Pass is fantastic and has been on regular rotation for me. Very interested to check this out, thanks.

"Tom Waits for no man."

I think you mean Tom Waits For No One (previously, Wikipedia), though it's more jazzy than this mashup. It's a fun video, and an impressive story (multi-camera rotoscoped video, both a technical and stylistic innovation for the time).

There was a bootleg with the title "Tom Waits for No Man" circulating a few years back, of a show from one of his Australia tours. Maybe he meant that.
