Nacionalidad: Austin, Texas.US
Estilo: PostRock, Art-Rock
DSTG: Bark Psychosis, Wire

The album continues the patterns of the previous albums, with brooding, ominous melodies building into crashing climaxes. It has generally received positive reviews from the public, with a rating of 85%--or Universal Acclaim--at Metacritic.
From an interview on "Slice of the shiny" Munaf said The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place was EITS's "attempt at love songs".
"Your Hand In Mine" was adapted for inclusion in the Friday Night Lights soundtrack, along with other original material written for the movie. The song was shortened from its album length of over eight minutes to just over four, and was embellished with string accompaniment.
"The Only Moment We Were Alone" was featured in commercials for the 2008 film Australia.

Song List :

1. "First Breath After Coma" – 9:33
2. "The Only Moment We Were Alone" – 10:14

Venetian Snares - The Chocolate Wheelchair Album [2003]






Nacionalidad: Winnipeg, Canada
Estilo: Breakcore
DSTG: Bong Ra
Formato: Mp3
VBR: 44.1Khz, 192Kbps.

This is by far VS' greatest compositional accomplishment, bar "Rossz" (a completely different style altogether). Putting really great mixing and production (for it's time) behind odd time signatures, like 5/4s and 7/4s, and a truly crossover style blending ragga, jazz, "classic" (80's rock) drum n bass, and even things so far stylistically removed (though conceptually related) as ska-punk (see Track 01: Abomonation Street, for which he sampled X-Ray Spex' "Oh Bondage Up Yours!"). All of this is crammed into great dance record, which is party focussed without letting the technically minded down, and creating a great "best of both worlds" release for those who appreciate both glitch and breakcore.

Song List :

1 Abomination Street (4:22)
2 Too Young (3:02)
3 Langside (3:52)
4 Einstein-Rosen Bridge (3:36)
5 Hand Throw (5:03)
6 Epidermis (4:42)
7 Ghetto Body Buddy (4:46)
8 Sky Painted On Car (5:15)
9 Marty's Tardis (9:17)

This is a CD-R release of a previosly released cassette. CD-Rs are more fun. See what it's like in a world full of busy salespeople and hear the sounds that they hear. Don't show your pastor this one. Wonderful yet oh so silly packaging with confusing toy suprises inside and harsh mucky-muck on the inside. A lot of fun.

M. G. Bufi - Homeless Hero EP [2008]






Nacionalidad: Mexico
Estilo: Electronic, Letouch
DSTG: Justice
Formato: Mp3
VBR: 44.1Khz, 192Kbps.

Es incalculable la cantidad de artistas que empezaron a hacer música imitando a sus héroes, versionando sus canciones o retomando sus ideas. Podríamos preguntarle a Bob Dylan por Pete Seeger, a Robert Smith por Jimi Hendrix o a Teenage Fanclub por The Byrds y Big Star, por ejemplo. Pero es que ya lo ha dicho el gran Billy Childish en más de una ocasión, el único valor del arte es que inspire a otras personas. Mateo González Bufi ha encontrado las musas en el sonido retrofuturista del French Touch, la escena electrónica francesa que desde finales de los 90 se ha convertido en marca de calidad. No lo oculta, incluso lo muestra con orgullo, como evidencia la remézcla del “Rock 1” de Cassius que se puede escuchar (y descargar) en su MySpace. En “Homeless Hero EP” da nuevos bríos a ideas que ya hemos visto en discos de otros artistas, pero con gusto y golpes de personalidad. El mejor ejemplo es la canción que le da título, con ese bajo magnético y esos momentos de distensión con melodías dulces entrecortadas. Pero también tiene buen pulso para construir techno-pop más ortodoxo, como muestra “We Begin”.

Song List :

01 - We Begin
02 - Like A Child
03 - Make It Over
04 - Homeless Hero

Venetian Snares - Songs About My Cats [2001]






Nacionalidad: Canada
Estilo: Breakcore
DSTG: Igorrr, Hecate, DjHidden
Format: Mp3
VBR: 44.1Khz, 192Kbps.

This was the first Venetian Snares album I ever heard, and it is what got me hooked. From the first track, "Chinaski", with its soothing pads and organs decimated by complex glitchy beats, the album is a sublime mix of IDM, dissonance, jazz influences and just pure harshness, as in "Breakfast Time for Baboons" and "Fluff Master". All of the tracks have something unique about them, from the just plain weird hallucination-reminiscent "Nepetalactone" to the annoy-your-neighbours "Pouncelciot" with its heavy vocoded snares and cacophonous saxophones. All in all, this is one of Venetian Snares' best albums, if not the absolute best. Granted, it's not to everyone's taste due to its constant assault of high pitched noise, glitch and abuse of natural instruments (there is a faint obsession with piano throughout). If you're into abstract music or Venetian Snares in general, you have to give this a listen.

Song List :

1 Chinaski (4:21)
2 Katzesorge Part 1 (0:51)
3 Nepetalactone (4:27)
4 Zoor Kakarookee (6:04)
5 For Bertha Rand (2:08)
6 Breakfast Time For Baboons (3:24)
7 Fluff Master (6:12)
8 Bobo (3:56)
9 Katzesorge Part 2 (0:51)
10 Pouncelciot (3:10)
