Rainy Day Rips

I'm trying to step up my game when it comes to ripping vinyl to digital format. The rips are getting better. At least I'd like to think they are getting better. Any insight into how I can improve my process would be greatly appreciated.

Until then - enjoy two 'good quality' rips from DFA's latest release. Capracara is a man of many aliases and has releases on Rekids, Kill the DJ and History Clock. Serious business.

As always, the 'highest quality' audio can be found on the actual release ... so go buy it!

Don't fret readers. This blog's gonna be staying audial. I'll leave the visual delights to Future Man and Same Desire. But brilliance like this must be shared.

What Is Minimal?

I went to check out Michael Mayer this past week. I don't know all that much about techno. But I know Kompakt. And I know Mayer. And I know both are responsible for pumping out extremely solid music.
So I guess it should have come as no surprise that a track he played at the tail end of his set that had me loosing my shit - was a release on his very own Kompakt label.
Is Walter Neff techno? Is Walter Neff pop? Who cares. It's an amazing tune that I've had on repeat for days now...

Let's Get Tropical

I bought the digital release last week – but just got a lil' package from Juno today that included Woolfy's latest single, Neeve. And upon listening to the record I was instantly like "I must share this with the world".

So here ya go – a nine minute journey through the jungle ... in space. The Permanent Vacation crew not only put out great records – but great remixes too!

I apologize for any links to tracks being blocked. Permission is gotten from artists for all new tracks posted on this blog. Apparently that isn't good enough for the RIAA. Please bear with me while I sort things out. And please feel free to email me with any requests for tracks that are currently offline.

Hey readers! I upgraded my DivShare account...faster downloads and no ads. Hooray!

Cuteness times six.

Today's track has nothing to do with how I'm feeling about this easter holiday weekend. Absolutely nothing at all.

Home Grown.

Not a rare find, but a good find nonetheless. A "re-mix" that was a promo only 12" from the Waitresses in '83. It kinda felt like 1983 when I bought this record – two bucks. Mint.
