spending too much money on records

man im bad, got some extra cash this weekend and then got carried away buying vinyl of course!

Ital - Endgame
Objekt - Flatland
from Jeremy over at Experimedia (thanks Jeremy!)
i did scour the web and he had the best prices anywhere and always great friendly customer service :)

then got some used bits

"you'll never get anywhere playing with that bloody drum machine" by Railway Raver
JamRolyPoly by Rubber Jonny (which in MY opinion is an AFX alias)
Qtio by Brothomstates (i had the CD but it was $4.99!  how could i say no?)
Bogdan Raczyinski - I Will Eat Your Children Too (one of his best and most fucked up 4 track EPs)

funny story, in the early 90s i went on IRC and talked with Bogdan a couple times randomly, really nice guy.  YEARS later, like maybe 4 or 5 years ago, I worked at a place, sitting next to a guy who actually was best buddies with Bogdan in highschool and used to hang out with him after school.
small world.

fav record stores in the US?

i personally like Bent Crayon and Experimedia but they don't always have everything in the world... discogs is good of course but a lot of stores it seems dont necessarily list their entire stock on discogs and some stores inexplicably aren't even on discogs :)
anyone have any favorite little record stores for techno and electronic stuff in the US of A that are online and do mail order?

The Artist
Berlin-based musician and producer Matthias Grübel mainly works as a composer soundtracking theatre productions. Projects outside the theater stretch from radio plays to audio-installations. Earlier releases include albums and EPs as Phon°noir and Telekaster. The Longest Year In History marks Grübel's first release using his real name as well as his first collaboration with Audiobulb.

The Longest Year In History
The spaces we enter define the speed of our lives. The Longest Year In History maps out all of these spaces. Our apartments and the windows we look through, looking at clocked day-to-day routines. The club, where existence is eternal, in synchronized infinity. The trains we ride, letting go of the routine while we are being moved, indulging in a shift of time and space... Matthias Grübel provides the soundtrack for our twisted sense of time and movement. He plays Sehnsuchtstechno for the calendar inside your heart.

The Longest Year In History is released as a CD EP and extended digital download including remixes.

New mix: PROBES #9.2, by Chris Cutler, exploring extended techniques for percussion and winds.

New podcast: PROBES #9.2, by Chris Cutler

This mix by Chris Culter explores extended techniques for percussion and winds.


The PROBES Auxiliaries collect materials related to each episode that try to give a broader – and more immediate – impression of the field. They are a scan, not a deep listening vehicle; an indication of what further investigation might uncover and, for that reason, most are edited snapshots of longer pieces. We have tried to light the corners as well as the central arena, and to not privilege so-called serious over so-called popular genres. PROBES 9.2 explores extended techniques for percussion and winds.

flooding idm with crap, an interview with laurie spiegel

i found this fascinating.  laurie has been around synths and electronic music since its inception, literally in the places where the innovation was happening at places like bell labs, working with morton subotnick, playing on actual mainframe music making computers, the works... and at heart being a guitar strumming folk musician, the sheer breadth and depth of this interview and the concepts that she expresses, i dunno... you should really read it if you are interested in what a really incredibly educated musician thinks of the evolution of electronics and music.

metamatics - instamatic

did anyone notice metamatics dropped a new LP?
i wasnt ever a huge fan in the past, i think i remember hearing it and being like "oh more cheesy happy idm bleeps" 
but being as i recognized the name and with respect for all those who have just held out that long and stayed around i decided to check it out
and the melodies do have a whole other layer of depth to them, and cover a wide and deep range of moods and feelings -- and are also backed by a ton of solid and thoroughly complex 'idmy' rhythms and beats, i was instantly taken from the minute i started listening and now this album has suddenly jumped up my internal charts significantly...
if i HAD to compare it to something maybe like a dark, gloomy, moody and aloof Plaid
