Thee Oh Sees, a Patriotic-Sounding Garage Band

Anyone who has been fortunate enuf to receive one of my genius mixes knows that I got it going on gleaning the new and old from the present and past (not at all modest).  454 more words

Song of the day - Kraftwerk 'THE TELEPHONE CALL'

Kraftwerk’s ‘The Telephone Call’ is one of my fav Kraftwerk songs. It came out in 1987. I fell in love with the sounds of Kraftwerk at a young age after discovering their classic ‘Trans Europe Express.’ I got my hands on as many Kraftwerk CDs as I could and listened to them all over and over again. 78 more words

Song from a concept album exploring themes of broadcast communications, Radio-Activity marked Kraftwerk’s return to more obtuse territory, extensively utilizing static, oscillators, and even Cage-like moments of silence to approximate the sense of radio transmission; a pivotal record in the group’s continuing development, the title track — the first they ever recorded in English — is their most fully realized electro-pop effort to date, while “The Voice of Energy” precipitates the robot voice so crucial to their subsequent work.
