  1. Well shit, that's a lot more info than I knew. Thanks for the clarification. I guess all we can do is wait.
  2. Sorry to bump. I assume that any remaining AB6 tracks are located somewhere in "The Joyrex Tape". Other than a few odds and ends it's made up of Ventolin outtakes and AB6 tracks.
  3. And I don't know where to begin to look, but there's some crazy shit coming out of the Ivory Coast. Upbeat as hell. What I heard sounded border-line Omar Souleyman. In Ghana they just call it "Funky" or "French", and doing google searches for those terms ain't gonna get you anywhere.
  4. Azonto makes me want to die. Blessed Africa indeed. Though I can't say anything positive about the U.S. Pop Music scene. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s46e0bbc0Ik https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gru0jE3_e00&list=UUMrF2afqvVAuatyQnJKMBOA Though I did hear that that be-afro'd comedian (Lil Wyn I think) is really funny. Wouldn't know since I don't understand a lick of Twi. There's still great stuff coming out of the country, but it's definitely not in the pop scene. King Ayisoba is pretty cool but you sure as hell are not going to hear him on Ghanaian radio.
  5. I don't know if I'd equate "most aggressive" with "most balls-out in-your-face retarded". Winnipeg is definitely up there though. Yea. On first listen it has about as much attitude as one of Cex's raps. Love Winnipeg.
  6. "Where's Bill" from the "Infolepsy EP" is about as aggressive as it gets (besides maybe "All of the Children are Dead"). Haven't listened to "Making Orange Things"; ya'll got me excited.
  7. Love that song. Lord Sutch And Heavy Friends - 10/10 Someone posted "Flashing Lights" in some thread devoted to rocking songs and I am so happy that they did. When I'm shit-faced this is the album I will flail around to all-night (along with Neil Young's Re-ac-tor). Jimmy Page provides some fantastic guitar work as well. Milton Nascimento & Lô Borges - Clube da Esquina - 10/10 Fantastic Brazillian Rock/Pop(?). Milton's voice is beautiful and Lo's guitar work is hypnotic. Single songs will go from slow and melancholy, to percussive breaks, to pure rock progressions. "Dos Cruces" is probably the best track to start with, though I fell in love with "San Vicente" (My girlfriend thinks that one's just plain goofy though). Os Mutantes - Mutantes - 9/10 Their second album and my personal favorite. Brazillian psychedelic pop that the Beatles made so popular in the late-60's. They remind me a lot of "The United States of America" but 10x better. The tracks are all over the place, but the album is still cohesive in my opinion. Gonjasufi - MU.ZZ.LE. - 10/10 It took me forever to warm up to this album, but now it's easily my favorite thing Ecks has ever released. "Nikels And Dimes/Rubberband" was all I listened to for a week-straight a few months ago. The beat-work and trip-hop basslines are gorgeous. Bassline in Rubberband might be samples from Portishead's "How can it be" or whatever the fuck that songs called but whatever. Less sample abuse than Gaslamp Killer's production in Sufi and a Killer. Spectral Park - Spectral Park - 10/10 I can't remember if I already gushed about this album the last time I posted but it is so fucking cool. Poppy, overwhelming, distorted, perfect. I've never heard anything like it. Beck - Modern Guilt - 10/10 I was one of those assholes who only liked Guero, but Gamma Ray is even better. P-Model - In a Model Room - 8/10 Some damn fine Japanese New Wave. Julia Holter - Loud City Song - 5/10 She's talented, but I get pretty bored with the album quickly. BUT, "Horns Surrounding Me" is amazing; a weird cross between Beach House, Portishead, and a small orchestra. Glad I held onto it for these shitty winter months. MC5 - Kick Out the Jams - 9/10 Some White Panther hardcore proto-punk rock that exploded out of Detroit in 1968. Sampled by Alec Empire in "Alec Empire vs. Merzbow". Oval - Pre-Systemische - 9/10 My favorite Oval tracks have always been "Commerce Server" and "Shop in Store". I recently found out that they were from recording sessions before 94diskont and Systemische. Grab it if you like his early stuff. Todd Rundgren I have the same opinion of Todd as I do of Richard D. James. They are kings of energy-filled hardcore, but their releases in the style are few and far between. With Richard we have "54 Cymru Beats", "Cock Ver 10", "Flow Coma Remix", "Box Energy Remix", some random song I found called "Crappy", "Omgyjya Switch7", "AFX 237v7", and I guess "Carnmarth" and some other tracks from the Richard D. James album. Todd has "You need your Head", "Rock-n-roll Pussy", "Everybody's Going to Heaven/King-Kong Reggae), and "Heavy Metal Kids" (that fucking guitar solo). If ya'll know anything by either artist that is as energetic and hardcore as the tracks I listed PLEASE tell me. And don't go sending me links to Steinvord, that stuff is dull. No Joy - Negaverse - 9/10 Good upbeat shoegazey stuff. And last but not least: Akiko Yano's song "Rose Garden". The rest of the album was really shitty 80's J-Pop, but this song is something special. 10/10 And if Kung-Fu Blaxploitation movies with a Soulful 70's soundtrack is your thing, get your hands on "Black Belt Jones". If you like the Black Dynamite movie you will like this. I've watched a good 20 or so Blaxploitation films in the past couple of months, and this is the cream of the crop. Now I gotta check out all of the shit Beerwolf and VerticalHold posted.

    Oh yea, correct me if I'm wrong, but I didn't see any mention of David Bowie. Buncha crazies. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5YJ-BjcXBI Fuck Ziggy Stardust. I mean, yea it's a good album, but not Man Who Sold the World good.

    Nice picks, Usagi. "I Found That Essence Rare" is hands down my favorite Gang of Four song. Neil Young's Sedan Delivery & Todd Rundgren's You Need Your Head are as good as it gets in my opinion. Fast paced. Electric Light Orchestra's first two albums were killer. I also love the poppier stuff, but this shit's so much more raw. Bauhaus can be hit or miss, but Dark Entries rocks. Tubeway Army - My Shadow in Vain Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Loose Change (The single-note bass line for the last 7 minutes gives it so much drive). Can't find a good video. I like the Broken Arrow version, and the one on Youtube is pitch-shifted to C#/F# instead of C/F. Fuck that. The Stooges - Little Doll (I live for the ending guitar solo. It's a bunch of wah-wah and it's nothing technical, but it sounds so cool). As far as new stuff, the Mexican Summer label pops out some good one-time artists once-in-a-while. I love Beaches and Bipolar Bear. Beaches - Eternal Sphere And maybe I'm just a poppy motherfucker but I love Yeah Yeah Yeahs' "Fever to Tell", the Strokes' "Room On Fire" and Franz Ferdinand's "You Could Have it So Much Better".
  10. Too many to mention, but my worst on Vinyl is "Burl Ives and the Korean Orphan Choir". The album cover is awesome.
  11. I'm sure it's been answered, buy I can't be assed into reading 60 more pages of this thread: I missed the kickstarter, how do I buy this? I can wait to pirate it I guess, but it's not like I'm adverse to throwing my money at Rephlex. Edit: Oh, just saw the other thread. Guess I'm pirating it. Dumb.
  12. Huh, didn't notice the Rephlex Records subforum. Bookmarked, thanks. Now I just have to hunt down these files. My tracklengths are a mess. It's definitely my favorite of the UI's as well. Also, for those who haven't seen it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=finErQL9YS0 Read the comments (Bottom to top).
  13. Those Burma albums are crazy. I gotta keep frequenting this thread for Nebraska's international music finds.
  14. I'll read up on this thread soon. I haven't been keeping up with Electronic Music much at all. Here's some memorable albums of the past year for me: Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Everybody Knows This is Nowhere; Broken Arrow; Rust Never Sleeps With the addition of Trans, these 3 albums are as good as Neil gets (imo). The vocal inflections in EKTIN are heart-wrenching, especially in "Round & Round (It Won't Be Long)". I've been belting out the lyrics to "Losing End" just about every day lately. Motherfucking Broken Arrow, man. The single note bass part for the last 7 minutes of "Loose Change" puts me in a trance every time. Couple that with Neil's in-and-out vocals and killer guitar solos and it ends up being one of the best songs I can think of. Although, 'Sedan Delivery' from Rust Never Sleeps definitely takes the cake. Fast-paced tempo and Funny-as-hell lyrics cause me to put the track on repeat every time I put the album on in my car. Seriously, if you haven't delved very far into Neil Young's discography give these three albums a shot. They're all perfect. Quilt - Held in Splendor Shit, there were days where I'd listen to "Arctic Shark" 10 times in a row. The winter here in Minnesota made the entire state depressed. I've never seen anything like it. I got this album just as Spring was starting to show it's gorgeous mug and it really clicked with me. A lot of people may just pass it up as uninspired indie-rock, and I guess I don't know how I'd fight someone with that opinion. I just like it. Alec Empire - The Golden Foretaste Of Heaven I don't know how many times I've fucked to this album now, but it's exactly what we always want to hear. Hardcore yet sweet at the same time. So many driving beats. "On Fire (The Hellish Vortex Sessions)" makes me wanna punch a wall and fuck like there's no tomorrow. Good shit. With the exception of "Robot L.O.V.E." I always skip that one. Merzbow - Aqua Necromancer Fantastic album. The intro to "Contrapunti Indian" becomes so overwhelming; the noise turns into this breathing huge thing and then dives into cutup psychedlic rock. I put it up there with Merzzow and Merzbeat. Had to edit out the high-pitch noise in "Soft Drums". It seems whenever a Merzbow song has the word "Soft" in the title you're in for some high pitches. Plastics - Origato Plastico I was very happy to find more 80's Japanese New Wave this year. I don't really know how to describe it, but I love it. Chaos Royale - You Realize, This Means War He released Discopathology on V/vm Test under Noise/Girl back in 2001. 10 years later he released this album. I suppose I'd equate it to Noise mixed with Dubstep with a high tempo. It's loud, it's hardcore, it's good. Tim Hecker - Trade Winds, White Noise I'm not very big into Hecker. I've tried giving him a chance, but the only thing I've liked for the past several years is Radio Amor; and I like it a lot. I discovered this companion piece of sorts, and I'd say it's just as good as that album. Both really impressionistic images of the sea and stuff. If you like Radio Amor, get this one too. Alien Porno Midgets - High Altitude Over Our Little Grass Shack in Kealakekua It's just Hawaiian music given the V/vm and Jansky Noise treatment. It's right up there with Sick Love. Venetian Snares - Infolepsy EP I'd only really listened to the track "Twelve" until this year. "Where's Bill" is one of the greatest hardcore epics I know of along with Aphex Twin's "54 Cymru Beats". All of Leyland Kirby's new stuff is good too, so go buy that.
  15. Dunno if this should be in the Aphex Subforum or Music Discussion, since we're talking about Dredd. It seems like every source I've found has a differing tracklist for Universal Indicator Yellow. Does anyone have info on what the correct track lengths, track order, and speeds/rpm should be? Audio examples would be nice. I swear I've heard 5 different versions of TARDIS over the years. Lovingly Yours, Murveman
