2008 Album Reviews (Part 6)

Sankofa – Music With Friends 1 – Give it up for the underground sound of Ft Wayne, Indiana. OK, everything out of Ft. Wayne is underground. This is a rough collection of 8 songs from a rapper named Sankofa. You will find no over-the-top bitches and bling rapping here. This stuff is earnest and raw. …

2008 Album Reviews (Part 5)

Sigur Rós – Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust– I eagerly await all Sigur Rós albums but somehow I let this one slip through my fingers. Chalk up another good reason for going through this little project of mine. I finally got to pay close attention to this album. The first song (“Gobbledigook”) shows …

2008 Album Review (Part 4)

Soulwax – The Mash Up Machine – I’m a sucker for anything that even vaguely references Kraftwerk such as this albums title and artwork making reference to Kraftwerk’s The Man Machine.Usually, bands that reference Kraftwerk are worthy of my time, and this is once again proven to be a correct assertion.

This Co – This Co – A rather obscure find – finding information about them requires much more than a single Google search. This is a good link for background information: http://www.layabozi.com/2008/12/this-co-rock-from-down-earth/. As for the music, I like it. It is a dancey, coldwave sound that grooves pretty well. Good stuff. For reference, I like this …

My Zune is in a coma.

If you haven’t checked the Tech news sites and well, by now, any major media website then you may not know about the global pandemic strikiing ill into the heeart of every 30GB Zune Microsoft has ever sold. I follow this story closely because I own a suddenly frozen (aka “bricked”) 30GB Zune. Apparently, at 12:00AM …

Christmas Songs

So I’ve begun slipping Christmas music into the Flinchbot Radio stream. Over the years I’ve collected quite a bit of cool and hip Christmas songs.
