It's not bad, but I'm not even sure that it's techno in the terms I understand, but I may be getting old! This is techno for me:

 

 

Play it loud.

 

I am rather guiltily enjoying the new Midlake album, which I expected to be poor, but it's actually rather good...

I'm enjoying the new Midlake quite a bit, don't feel guilty. Everyone complains the band is boring beyond belief, but I always find myself throwing them on when I want some nice background music and humming along regardless.

Check out their Late Night Tales mix as well, it's like a Midlake album except even better:

He'd benefit from an executive producer having creative control over an album and picking all the beats. It's sad that one of the best technical rappers ever can't make any music worth listening to.

edited...some classics in his library. gotta imagine his thinking is 'btdt', hence seemingly not just focusing on rapping. disappointing regardless though

By all accounts, he's a hermit that doesn't listen to any modern music which is why this album sounds so out of touch. From what my friend at Interscope said, everything to do with the album was handled in Detroit; the label had no say at all in any of it. This atrocity is the music Eminem wants to make.

As far as his classics, he definitely has some songs that have held up. But as far as albums, nah. Too many fart jokes, funny voices and dated pop culture references (you want to hear raps about Fred Durst and Christina Aguilera in 2013?) to reach classic status. When is the last time you let an old Eminem album play all the way through?

My ears are still ringing from hours of improvised mayhem with Damo Suzuki's Network last night. A shifting cast of musicians drifted in and out, but highpoints included one section where someone in a gasmask was producing sounds from a guitar-triggered midi set-up that sounded like a digital pig being tortured with an analog crowbar accompanied by two drummers, a keyboard player in 7 inch spike heals and a black Morticia Adams gown, and a bouncy, smiley bassist wearing a floral dress and kinky boots laying down some serious lines, and a guy with very long grey hair who just came on and screamed. Later, the same grey-haired guy came on again with a guitar and played about an hour of pure noise with the most tattooed guy I have ever seen playing a sax worn on a hangman's noose through multiple effects pedals, another guitarist and bassist, two completely different drummers and a guy in traditional clothes calmly adding flutes, gongs and temple drums. And through all this rolling noise, Damo Suzuki drifted in and out like some shamanic figure: narrating, shouting, growling, coaxing, pleading... just awesome. If you ever get the chance to see (or even play with) Damo Suzuki, do it!

and

Midnight Marauders
