Forgot to mention: I wrapped up my Goitia Deitz remix of “Romance” just before the holiday. Sent it to the band and they dig it. I’m looking forward to hearing the full EP, which will also have remixes by Tom Furse (of The Horrors), Croms, Clout!, KVB, and Harry McCanna.
get a large typewriter
and as the footsteps go up and down
outside your window
hit that thing
hit it hard
make it a heavyweight fight
make it the bull when he first charges in
and remember the old dogs
who fought so well:
Hemingway, Celine, Dostoevsky, Hamsun.
if you think they didn’t go crazy
in tiny rooms
just like you’re doing now
then you’re not ready.
Being a great artist or musician is not so different.
The debut album for local musician and artist Rainbo Video (aka Arturo Evening) is beautiful, haunting, and stunning in scope. Over just five tracks, he manages to loop his way through modern electronic music. This is minimal trance or ambient music but with so many layers and textures you will find yourself lost and in love. The epic opening to the album, “Ultraviolet,” is the best of Steve Reich mixed with Aphex Twin. The album as a whole is chilling, but that could be because of the album’s core concept. Shadow Relics centers around an expedition to Antarctica and the strange artifacts uncovered there.
