So Amoeba music is a record store? Is there a conection like with the tube station?

 

It's the only record store franchise left here in California. Very large and famous, the one here in SF used to be a bowling alley. They've been open for years https://www.amoeba.com/our-stores/

 

No connection to the London station.

I'm going to toss one up somewhere.

 

This shit is so dope.


Let’s avoid the typical patterns when an album drop is imminent. Let’s not talk about all the things we hope it will be. Or all the things we hope it won’t be. The more we do that, the more we work ourselves up into a flurry of expectations.

Let’s avoid judgement. Be in the moment. And take the album as it’s delivered to us with open ears and open minds.

This is Richard D. fucking James. The fucking King. He has earned an honest and open listen from us. I don’t want to spend so much time in my head about music that i haven’t heard yet, that i cloud my ability to truly hear it when it finally arrives.

 

 

This. In fact, you should probably have this perspective when you experience pretty much any kind of art. Just take it in for what it is rather than what you think it should be.

This thread peaked when nobody knew whether we were talking about Daft Punk or Paul McCartney. I just listened to both albums and couldn't tell which was which.

Amoeba is cool. I've never been to the stores but they have some good deals online sometimes. I found a Brainwaltzera record there a couple years ago for cheaper than any other retailer, though that was mainly because of free shipping to the US. They also do a video series where they talk to people about what records they picked up in the store

The Amoeba in Berkeley is my local shop, but I fuck with Redeye.

 

 

 

You can sometimes find some great/cheap albums in the used CD section at the Haight/Ashbury location. I found Autechre's Anti EP for like five bucks once.

I actually bought the Cheetah EP there.

I sincerely hope the new Aphex sounds

nothing like the stuff in this Youtube clip. This might ruffle some feathers but one of the things I dislike about a lot of later era Aphex Twin, Analord etc..is the strong focus on making stuff funky. Where as RDJ's earlier material was so much deeper, more emotive, massive, other worldly....somewhere along the line he became fixated on funk, which is an element of music I can't stand for the most part.

 

I'm hoping at some point he returns to his earlier, more serious vision of things. He used to make music that was intense, that cut through the bullshit. Now it's - look how slick and funky I can be. Just my two cents but I hope the new one is some serious business. Fight me.

I actually agree with that (especially the funk thingy). Me no fight you.

Truth be told, our Richard was never the same after 9/11 ~~~[] [] -<-

While I believe that video is just a good fake, I have to admit, I'd be pretty disappointed if that were on a major Aphex Twin LP release. I love me some acid, but it's becoming old and tiresome across the board. The heavy acid would be best left for Analord/AFX releases. Then again, maybe it'd be great in the context of the full album.
