Got this a few days early from a cooler than average store owner, when I bought some albums from him the other day. Promo copy. $5.00. Not fucking bad at all.

The absolute best DIY bedroom created rap since The Grouch Mr. Invisible was made on a audio-cassette TASCAM 4-track..

The new album by The Asteroid No.4, which I didn't know existed until yesterday.

Ok it's an EP, but still... How'd I miss it? Too caught up in hip hop this year, I suppose. It's a good little EP, but quite different from their signature spaced out psychedelia. More folky, and extremely melancholy.

Just revisiting this after many years, damn it's solid! Did this ever have a vinyl release? Ripe for a vinyl reissue...

This is blaring through my television system as I clean up around the house:

I suppose I can see why someone might get that idea. He is a meat heat and he loves Rush and he's a figure who gained popularity in the post-Nirvana '90s, so there's a compulsion to think of him as part of that group of totally goddamn boring gutless faux metal shock groups (see Tool, RATM, Rob Zombie), but you not liking his music doesn't make him talentless. He's an Oscar winning score composer. He has absolutely refused to even acknowledge trends in popular music, and has only ever done his own thing on his own terms. He can write 12:00 industrial metal anthems, moody, complex piano-based instrumental pieces, and pop songs that pull from Depeche Mode, the Cure, Ministry, and Pinl Floyd in equal measure. He loves his fans and hates record companies, and he has probably done more, at the mainstream level, for electronic music than anyone else from is era.

So call his music crappy all you want, but be fair. The guy is objectively talented.

That's not why I listen. I listen because it takes me back to high school... To the downward spiral, and simpler times. When a handjob made a weekend a success, and failure was... No handjob. Sucky, but a pretty mild low compared to how life gets later on.

Anyway, I like it. It's fun. And good. It's even great at moments.
