  1. Can save a bit going the Bandcamp way. Bleep kicks up the price on their 24-bit .wav but Bandcamp's .wav option is 24-bit standard if the artist offers it. Instead of Bleep's $14.99, Feed Me was $13.31. A $1.68 savings. That's enough to offset the odd Demi Lovato or Hall & Oates .mp3 from iTunes or Amazon.
  2. "Theme from Ernest Borgnine" is an eternal jam. I caned the hell out of it in '99 when I finally got the CD and plenty of times since so it's my best reference audio. This re-release of Ernie is much more rumbly to me. It was always an "unruly" track from an EQ perspective anyway due to the kick of the drum break running wide open in a pretty wet reverb. It feels like the old Goldwave days when you could apply "Bass Boost" with a value of +1 to +4 to the entire .wav 😅 "Deep Fried Pizza" is waaaay bass boosted to me but, in fairness and full disclosure, that was a 192 kbps .mp3 FTP snag i
  3. Ol' Tommy "the mensch" Jenks giving us the salad days. Cheers for that and big thanks to prdctvsm for the upload.

  5. Both are making use of the drum sounds of the Casio SK-1 from 1986. Have a listen to the drum portions in this video.
  6. Some serious "fine wine" action going on here with Deb. Trueblood is now a long time ago and she still got it goin' way on. Plus, she's sticking with her man even after he developed a devastating disability (genetic blindness). What a gal. Proof of a true Chutes and Ladders God: "son I'm taking your eyesight but you're getting Deborah Ann by your side".
  7. By the time I even started getting my head around this thing, it sold tf out. Appetites are strong out there.
  8. This really nails it. "No More Nightmares" and its associated video is as close as he's ever gotten to full pop and if you just put it on in the background, it could be a kawaii little monkey adventure. A closer look reveals it to be an Old Testament fever dream with a donkey's jawbone and Abraham willing to sacrifice Isaac. I don't buy physical bits anymore but he tempts me the most because of all the little hidden treats. I appreciate you passing along the "estrangement" Easter egg.
  9. That new track "Pieces of 8" came out and it slaps. It was in the cart and I had vaguely remembered WATMM praise so I just did an impulsive, throw-it-in-the-bin deal at Bandcamp and it was the right move. I've had the 3 Arla EPs, Everything U Need, POLY011, Raft Living and the new single on a run and it's a quality crop of tracks. Aerially, it's like a BOC/SAWII rave. Salvatorin really did say it best about the restraint: edging 😂😇😔 let's chuck it in so you don't have to go looking:
  10. This is very unfair to Arovane, who has done nothing but make some solid tunes for like 30 years now. They're not "Chiastic Slide" knockoffs either--that's Funkstörung if anything. I thought there had to be at least a baseline rule at any music retailer to "sell the record regardless". Imagine a pizza parlor server responding to questions about a pie with "terrible knockoff of Pizza Hut with a flavor that perpetuates the patriarchy".
  11. Dipping into that Games/Ford & Lopatin backstock to great profit.
  12. Put BARKER 001 and 002 together and baby you got a stew goin'. Sam just doesn't miss--it's remarkable. Not a single track he's put out on his own that I don't like. I liked Baumecker and Barker well enough back in the day but it's like he's on some asymptotic shit into a new realm of quality.
  13. Did anyone consider that Tom might channel his inner George Lucas and really go ham on this remaster? Imagine a Fruity Loops style effects suite called "Ufabulizer". Sidechained, squashed and bricked into right and left pylons hahaha.
  14. guide on that ancient Aphex safari. True lol at a file upload site being called "spread-it.com" hahaha
  15. Based on the still shot that the infamous shoop was created with, you got the feeling that she was a no-nonsense Latina who was done with your shit. Seeing her irl anime eyes and smile completely changes that. I wonder what else she went on to do in late 90s LA.
