What's up bros. I went to the WFMU Record Fair in NYC a few weeks ago (click above to see the madness). I just got a new job so I felt it was appropriate to give myself a re-ward and go bonkers. I just went Friday night for like 2-3 hours. Some people make a whole weekend out of it.
I'm having such a hard time with Blogger right now but I just don't care... I know this is going to look all fucked up.
All these marketing schemes worked on me:
Here are some of the gems I picked up:
A few sweet solo drum improv out jazz records I spent too much money on, (one is on ESP Disk, tho). I'll find some samples here.
I spent $20.00 on this Hamza El Din record just to find out it is on Spotify :( But that's ok, because there was a Jon Appleton record (early electronic musician) on Folkways that I was *this close* to dropping $80.00 on (!), but I came to find out that shit is on Spotify too! "Jon Appleton – Music for Synclavier and Other Digital Systems: With Jon Appleton, Composer", go check it out, $80.00 worth of music there.
This record from 1984 called "Beam-Scape", hahaha, so cheezy. But it's doooope, it sounds like Emeralds or something. It's bad ass.
This is the #1 pick for me. I got this Steve Tibbetts joint from my boy Record Mike. Private Press weirdo random record, Side A is really solid guitar soli vibe solo guitar, but then Side B turns into synth nightmare freakout. This will be showing up on the next Scoobie Brothers joint.In close, I just want to take this opportunity to shout out Midlake "Antiphon" (candidate for best of 2013) and the new White Denim joint as two things I've been meaning to blog about but too lazy to.
