ALL Right, let's get serious.

Ok, first off. It's been too long since a post. Summer was just too much for me to get off my lazy ass write about something. Now that I'm more active again aka back in school, I'll start writing more. I'll do a recap of what important has gone on.....

1. Matthew Dear's Asa Breed came out and is wonderful. I have now totally dived into the whole Matthew Dear world of music with his own name and and Audion as well looking into his label Spectral. It's great great stuff.
2. Fela Kuti was the man. There is no doubt about that. If you don't own an album by the man, well, you are missing out. He is like the new found hero of the year from the past.
3. Electronic music is not dead. Simian Mobile Disco and Justice have released albums that both declare a new state in the world of post-Daft Punk dance music. Justice is probably the best of the Ed Banger crew/ French/Noise/Filtered Disco, but Simian is the one to really look out for. They are doing their own thing with electro beats and italio disco influences. If there is reverb on the synths, I'm hooked.
4. The Black Lips are my heroes of 2007. Their new album is stellar. I've had it for a while. I got it ahead of time (my friends are good to me). Cole is such a nice guy. He was very willing to give advice to my friend and I about touring and whatnot at a party and just talk. He was very polite and welcoming.
5. A new record label is arriving soon enough. Look out for Double Phantom Records. That's all I'm going to say. Just look.
