tones on type

(I bet nobody gets that)

Just playing with typography
shit, but it's late so fuck it...

Listening to the new Bjork and
Low records I got today... I like
them both but not sure if I love
either of them. I've been on an
Engine Down kick lately too...

...I love their Demure record!

is that volta you're hearing? I'm curious how it is. I saw her sing for a show via youtube, and liked that song...don't remember the name of it now.

I recently picked up the new Dntel CD, and aside from two (country sounding songs) on it, the rest is great. Nothing like their older electronic sound though.

Yeah it's Volta. I dunno, it's quite clearly Bjork, but I don't know if I really like it yet or not. I LOVE Vespertine, but Medulla didn't do much for me, except for two songs. Well see...

D'ntel does country? What? is a great site!!

Jim, thanks.

hahah - yeah, I was asking the same thing to myself about dntel - huh? But the other songs on the cd are good, so it makes up I guess. Love Vespertine too, and Medulla to me is sleepytime music.

Oh, don't get me wrong, some of Medulla is amazing... but some of it is a case of the idea being cooler than the reality. I appreciate the effort to make an entire record out of vocal sounds, but some of it just wasn't as cool as the rest of it.

Also, for the life of me, I can't understand why she didn't get Matmos to help her with that record... I mean, that's exactly what they do; make music out of anything. They were her touring band for a few years, and did part of Verspertine, but the second she got into exactly what they do, they were nowhere to be found. Maybe they wanted to get back to their records, I dunno, but it seems like they would have helped that record a lot.

Check them out if you don't know who they are. They made a whole record out of the sounds of plastic surgery called: A Chance to Cut is a Chance to Cure. Brilliant.

Jim, I think you were trying to say that you did in fact 'get that' but it was the title of the post that I don't think anyone got... not the text on the picture. It was a bit of an obscure (or I'm getting old) reference.
