And I don’t like Nouvelle Vague or Tortoise for the record.I had the same problem on Mozilla on my Mac a few months ago for another gig. I use the iPhone app now, that seems to be the most reliable way.
I never really explored Stereolab, I love the releases they did with NWW but the album I eventually bought by them was really dull (Chemical Chords). I listened to two albums today (Mars Audiac Quintet and Dots and Loops) and I have to admit, I’m struggling to hear the genius that everyone is attributing to them. There are a couple of tracks on MAQ that get into a cool Krautrock flow but essentially they are just knocking off Neu and Harmonia. The rest of it sounds like that band Nouvelle Vague doing covers of Tortoise using the keyboard preset “Dreary Organ Sound”. I’ll be saving my money.
was wondering the same. I was at the tripod gig and don't remember there being the same fuss about it. They had just released a new album (chemical chords?) at the time and it was a bit underwhelming.Picked up one earlier. Maybe im underestimating their popularity but will this sell out fairly quickly? Would have thought not but wasn't taking the risk at the same time
Email newsletter? Just read it there now. Really interesting bits and bobs of info on thereAnother thing I read today was that 'Pack Yr Romantic Mind' on Transient originally sampled 'Wonderwall' by George Harrison and they didn't get clearance for the sample from Apple. They wouldn't have minded if they were self-releasing but they had just got a worldwide distro deal with Elektra and had to frantically collect the masters and redo a similar sounding bit last minute.
