Everything and Nothing / Casting little kids in sick violent movies
« on: September 30, 2015, 12:19:27 AM »
I cannot believe this trend of putting small children in movies I would never even let them watch if they were my kids.  Saw a horror film recently with a cute little six year old girl.  They had her enact a murder in which she bludgeons her mother to death with a sledgehammer when the mother is in bed sleeping.  Tonight I saw "Cop Car" with Kevin Bacon, which has gotten glowing reviews.  Am I the only one who thought it sick to cast two little boys who play with loaded guns like they're squirt guns??  I'm outraged at the parents of these actors, the film makers, and the studios that release such films.   :(

No but I listened to Disc 4 tonight and it was awesome.  The first 20 minutes kind of drifts nowhere but it picks up with a beautiful mood.  Might be my fave now of the set.

I wouldn't buy it because of the awful title  ;D

Any news on the next Hypnos release?

You can get a new copy at Groove Unlimited for $23.  Therefore don't buy it on eBay or Discogs.

Redshift is pretty much only Mark Shreeve these days.  Wouldn't be surprised if the new one is all Mark.

How do you know the "CD sales decline does not create much motivation for Steve"?  I don't think you'd know without asking him directly.  Same with the new vs old  sound.  I agree, I like the old better but how do you know the reason for the change?  Is it by intentional design, new gear, or..

I don't understand the last two paragraphs of the post above.   Angry and wish hadn't seen this thread?  Why??

Just saw a member comment.  No details.  Groove Unlimited has the CD album for sale.  So you don't have to drop $50 or more for a copy.  Please advise anyone if you have details about this reissue.

First impressions of this 4 disc set:

The artwork and packaging is awesome on this. 

I would describe the music as a cross between Mystic Chords and Slow Heat.. it's "quiet" electronic music that's actually pretty f**kn loud.  Huge massive walls of drones ebb and flow with spacious modular oscillations weaving in and out.

Disc 1:  amazing track.  Best of the set.  I like how it morphs into something else towards the conclusion.  A really inspired piece.

Discs 2 &  3:  a little samey, not as good as disc 1.  Some melodic motifs but overall a lot of abstract drifting.

Disc 4:  this sounds like looping the tail end of a track above so it's more like a billowy aftermath of previous intensity.  A bit boring but these are just first impressions.

For those who love their Berlin School sequencer music, arguably the finest proponent is Redshift from UK.  Straight from the horse's mouth (Mark Shreeve), new studio album "Life to Come" release is imminent.  Really looking forward to this as the last studio album was "Turning Towards Us" from way back in god, 2009? Something like that.

Datacide II by Tetsu Inoue/Atom Heart.  Very early Fax release of bleepy, bloopy, trippy gentle ambient, with a couple ambient techno tracks.  Good example of that early to mid 90s sound, not just from Fax.  I have the reissue version.  Seen the original on Discogs for $200.

Everything and Nothing / Excuses Used by Ebay and Discogs Sellers
« on: September 01, 2015, 08:29:19 AM »
I don't know if anyone here buys music using eBay and Discogs.  My latest couple experiences prompt me to create this post.  When I sell music on Discogs, I follow the selling procedure by updating the buyer, e.g. when I've received their payment, when I've shipped their item, etc.  I always ship as soon as I get payment, and I let buyer know what's going.  This is common courtesy and also Discogs "rules" for proper selling on the site.  Last two times I was the buyer, the seller invoiced me immediately, which I paid immediately, then let 3 or 4 days go by without communication.  When I asked for an update, I got (BOTH sales) "So sorry, I've been ill in the hospital"!!  I can't count how many times I've heard this, both eBay and Discogs.  The most current one, they apparently have the flu, but of course didn't bother to advise of the delay.  They had invoiced me immediately as well, plus overcharged me for shipping compared to their seller requirements.  I don't understand how these people get 100% feedback ratings.   With all the hospital time they're logging, it's hard to see how they're selling anything at all...

Didn't know Jon Hassell helped out Mo Boma.  Interesting.  Great Extreme label artist.


Motionfield--Luftrum.  This overall was disappointing. 2 or 3 excellent tracks but a lot of it sounds a bit dated, and dull.  Don't think would have cut it as a Fax release. 

AoC 3.9.  Solar Image remixes.  Excellent stuff.  I found this used at a record store.  Out of print.  Sweet! 

Cosmic Ground 2.  Haven't had enough listening time on this.  Retro Berlin School sequencer stuff, self released by artist.
