The holidays are kind of over and I couldn't find any of the reflex flexi disc's in my old room....that blew, all the magazine's which were funny as hell, but I have no idea what I did with all those 7" flexi's.
Casiotone's stuff with more production recently on the few new 7"'s is just improving.
I think that story I heard about this being a bet to see if he could really create a decent album with a casio is true. I want it to be true. I think he succeeded on 'twinkle echo'. It's good songwriting, you can hear it with the simplest instruments and devices. I don't know if this would do every artist good, to be reduced to a 4 track and a room. It would be intimidating for a lot I'm sure, to be that stripped down. Your faults will be amplified.
He really appreciates a good beat. I can understand that, the foundation is well thought out and really good, catchy percussion tracks, like old beck stuff, kind of drum machine but humanized.
This seemes to be a direction menomena is going in as well. It's really solid music, well made you can really be sure if you put on a mix tape you probably will still enjoy it in a year.
read all about it.
