So this week I have had a few adventures in eJuices. Some of this is a follow up to last week’s To Steep or Not To Steep article. There is a brief topic that I didn’t bring up. And part of this is a new adventure I’m having.
This week I feature four William Shakespeare Sonnets in da mix.
On Mono Box, Colin has gone a completely different direction. This time, instead of using a production technique to enhance and modify the sound of the music he has keyed the work around a monophonic synthesizer.
I encountered Cousin Silas on the Just Not Normal netlabel back in 2009. In an interview with Thomas Mathie about starting We Are All Ghosts, he mentions Cousin Silas as one of the artists that inspired him to start the label. So why wait until Cousin Silas revisits the place it used to be to write a review?
If you listen to the media naysayers, such as Kevin Roose in his article The Doomsday Cult of Bitcoin (via New York Magazine), you would believe that the Bitcoin dream is dead. And, to be honest, he does make some valid points. However, for all of those valid points, he ignores long lists of positives.
There seems to be some disagreement in the vaping community as a whole whether to steep or not to steep an eJuice. What is steeping? What does it do? Why is it controversial?
CerebralMix 2014-03-02: The Bells, Bells, Bells, Bells – Featuring the poem “The Bells” by Edgar Alan Poe
Algorhythms is a label I just discovered, thanks to Facebook (at least I think that’s where I found it). And, I’m glad that I did find it. Algo’s Acousam immediately struck me as a perfect counter point to the François Couture release I reviewed last week.
I thought it best to give Maxi Roots – See No Light a bit of light the day before it’s release rather than two days after. It also seems fitting to end the week the way I started it: with a dub release.
In the wake of the fall of MtGox there has been a lot of interesting speculation, a lot of hyperbole, and some downright stupidity. I’m just catching up on the whole situation, but still have quite a bit to say about it.
I am convinced that Keith from Pan Y Rosas Discos really thinks that I must be a glutton for experimental and unusual recordings. Well, he would be correct, but just how did he know? I guess I can’t completely blame Keith. I have to “blame” Daniel Barbiero, after all his ‘Take A Sound…’ recording was the first one from Pan Y Rosas Discos that I reviewed. Then Keith followed up by submitting Bristophe and Lucie Vitkova for my listening pleasure. And now, ce François Couture’s Derrière.
I’ve reached something of a vaping plateau. Right now I am at a point where I am mostly happy with everything that I have. What do I do next?
CerebralMix 2014-02-23: Ade and Lara go to town to see Kurbeats and DuRahJah with Lilly and Hodges. Along the way Ade and Lara visit a creepy lodge.
For the first release in 19 months, Brk’s dub conversions make an excellent addition to the Sonux catalog.
