i've been listening to it and berlinette for awhile now. and as for amoeba, i don't think i've ever been into a better record store than it. now only if i could convince them to get out here on the east coast!!!
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.
i've also been listening to an experimental collaboration between novelist Hari Kunzru and DJ producers Coldcut.
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.
it's been so long since i've used mirc that i have no clue what to do.
When you download it, if you want to do so, let me know.
I was just there today!!!
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.
I was there between 2-3...ahhh I spent 70$ and my friend spent 150$! I couldnt believe it!! they have shows there as well... Fantomas is playing there soon for free.......
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.
neber heard of these guys.
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 . . .
hey what radio station you listen to? i was listening to kroc and wondered if you listen to them. normally, i listen to 97.1 because i like their talk radio hosts. however, kroc is pretty awesome in my opinion.
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.
