I (james) being one of 3 members to post on this blog have a problem. The problem consists of listening to suggested music and treating it with the same respect as the music I already love. Respect is probably not the best word choice, but the point remains the same. I love what I love and anything that comes into my field of hearing usually ends up being scrutinized too heavily and never given the chance it deserves.

Kraftwerk managed to bob and weave their way past the Wilco, Stereo Lab, Talking Heads, fortress and plant themselves into an unexpected place apparently reserved for them already. Computer World is the first record I had a chance to sit down with. I love it. It has all the things that make me feel as though I should be on a highway driving towards some unknown destination. Ambient electronic pop, whatever description you apply it’s great. There are people who can describe them much better than I (Nick Z, XBS Blog master) but that wasn’t really the purpose of this post (sorry, feeling lazy). More than anything it’s a suggestion to go out and give them a listen. They are assuredly not for everyone, but if you’ve never listened than it’s well worth it. “Computer Love” is one of my favorite tracks. If it sounds oddly familiar there’s a reason. Listen and find out.

Hello!

Well, it’s almost time to start the last year evah, 2012!!!!

In celebration XBS plan to make lots of Carpenter-esque synth jams.  Here’s what we made yesterday :::

Newly fixed Oberheim DMX being minimal with a Simmons SDSV and polysynth layering from OB-8, Mirage (DPX) and SCI Multitrack ( great sleeper synth )

Accompanied by some ANIGIFS as always!


…I.F.

I always come back to this record.  It has just the right amount of organized and free-for-all which can be a hard line to ride.

It’s truly a set it and forget it on repeat all day kind of record.  I like that about it too.
