My Favorite Current Music. [Mar. 19th, 2004|06:00 pm]

[In the Moment |ecstaticecstatic]
[Special Music |Ellen Allien's weiss.mix, on repeat, all day.]

From the vast catacombs of Amoeba Records . . .


Probably, it is the finest record store I have ever shopped . . .


Amoeba Records.


My current most favorite album . . .


Ellen Allien's weiss.mix


Ellen Allien's weiss.mix . . . I finally have a copy.


Thanks be to maryjane2723 for the introduction to this fine album.


The weiss.mix features a sonic wonderland I can only pinpoint from a soundtrack of one of my subconscious films.


I picked up a few others . . . Boards of Canada Hi Scores, Buck 65 463 EP, and an interesting title . . . Dancing Machine: Erase Errata Remix Record . . . with Adult.'s "Marathon" and Kid 606, Matmos, and Kevin Blechdom.


Thank you, Amoeba, for stocking Allien.


I wonder if Allien's Berlinette is worth a return trip.

Amoeba is quite nice.

I had no idea. I thought Record Time back home was great . . . it's minor leagues back home, even in electronica.

I take it that you like Berlinette as well.

Allien's one of my more favorite peeps.

yeah berlinette was one of my fav. albums of 03.

right now i'm really into Dolphin Boy's debut album 'gateaux youth'. it just fits and i'm sure it'll be played a lot this summer.
i'm also diggin' Blockhead's 'music by cavelight'. but i'm sure you won't be able to find it just yet as it's not been released.

do you use soulseek and have a good connection? if so add me [ambientfusion] i might have some tunes you'd dig. not to mention the above two i've mentioned.

postus scriptus...

i've also been listening to an experimental collaboration between novelist Hari Kunzru and DJ producers Coldcut.

the story:

Dan is a sound engineer who, bombarded by the sounds and rhetoric of his life, withdraws into the detail of sound itself. Bidding for sound effects tapes on the internet, he mysteriously acquires some old MoD shellac records. When he starts hearing messages from a World War II spy Cora, code name Gabrielle, reality becomes fantasy as the sounds he hears take over his life in this super-sonic supernatural drama.

I've heard this talk of the experimental collaboration before!

Now I am really interested.

Let me know when you see me posting around the same time as you. I don't have Soulseek installed, but if you want to hop on to www.mirc.com and use that collection of servers, I frequent efnet, and I'm on the channel @music when I'm on efnet.

OMG.

I went to see a movie at ArcLight, and I was there around 8:30 to 10:15, just lookin' through all of their stuff.

They had a Nirvana show poster from their New Year's Eve 1993 concert! I was geeked to see the 2000 dolllar Rolling Stones? album sitting on the wall near the classical section.

Yes. I spent just under two hours walking around that store.

It adds up because the music, especially the quality used stuff . . . it's so cheap!!!

You buy and buy and suddenly you hand over 150 bucks at the register.

Their movie selection upstairs is pretty neat. They have an expansive TV section . . . their horror needs a little work.

It is the musique electronique, with the turntables and the computer and the synth and the bass and the sound effects and the rhythm and everything else . . .

Oh yeah, the kitchen sink too.

Ellen Allien's a big one, and she is from Germany.

Then you also have Kraftwerk, also from Germany.

Then there's the Detroit factor, which I hold a special place in my heart. :D Derrick May, Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson (who doesn't pay a worker of his wages due, by the way). Adult., Hawtin/Plastikman, and many morrre . . .

Forget that Moby shit. There's more to life than Moby in electronic music, even though I do enjoy his songs . . . "Honey" is a good one. I like "Thousand" off my old Killer Techno compilations . . .

And the James Bond Theme. That's a sweet rendition.

And many more on top of many more artists!

It's no surprise you don't hear about these guys. America is still caught up on finding the next Beatles, and the rest of the world has moved on . . .

I've listened to the Adam and Drew show in the evening on that one station sometimes.

Then, I really like the classic rock station . . . it's 93.something. They've been playing some clever classic rock, not the most obscure stuff, actual bona-fide classics.

I'd say yes, it is worth a trip.
