No need, just imagine the Twin Peaks theme with a glitchy beat from 2003 under it.

I really don't get the fuss about Flying Lotus.

I like the idea of the Thundercat/Flylo/Kamasi/Kendrick gang more than the music sometimes, I can see why others wouldn't connect with it though.

Just my second venture into the LPD discography, first being The Maria Dimension, which I need to revisit soon. This has been a long time coming, but seems like a brilliant album so far. I'll be listening to more albums from them in the coming days.

The Maria Dimension and Crushed Valvet Apocalypse are probably the two best of their space-rock-ish European years. The sprawling, chaotic Asylum is probably my absolute favourite slice of LPD, though Faces in the Fire is as good as synth-pop gets, and the studio side of The Lovers is probably as good a collection of pop songs as has ever been created.

Oh, and the early collections such as Under Triple Moons are also essential. Though the music was largely home-prodiced demo cassettes, some of Ka-Spel's best examples of songwriting and wordplay are on tracks like "Frosty" and "Splash".

Nice suggestions. I'll definitely add them to my wishlist. As vast as their discography seems to be, it helps to have recommendations. I also agree with the above statement about The Maria Dimension and Crushed Velvet Apocalypse. Probably some of the finest psychedelic rock out there. Comparable to any of the great psych-rock groups.

NP The Walkabouts - Night Town (Glitterhouse) double lp set from box of three albums.
Their work with strings is a thing of beauty.

It's about the only thing mentioned over the last few pages that I might conceivably have any interest in.

Shangaan Electro: New Wave Dance Music From South Africa

My country of birth showing all these British and American urban electronic guys where the real future is. This stuff is fucking mental and awesome. Footwork, juke, Chicago house, and general neo-psychedelia is in debt to this.

How is it that a couple of folks in their mid-60s (with the help of some other bloke) make techno music that is so much harder and deeper than most of the young blokes' attempts? Awesome record.
