Pac-Man Song

"Inky, Blinky, Clyde, better move aside
Energizer ride for the cherries
Pinky cannot hide in the blue divide
Ghost and Man collide, he gets buried"

The Ride Theory

The Ride Theory

Hailing from Zero Transmission Ground Zero, aka Hamilton Ontario The Ride Theory are on the cusp of their east coast tour of Canada and are currently working on their newest CD to be released in July 2005.

From the bio:

All members being well-schooled in the roots of rock n’ roll, we naturally draw musical inspiration from the analog masterpieces in surf rock, soul, art rock, garage and beat rock.

Please note :: the links to the mp3 files on their website are boned so I took the liberty of fixing the links in this post and linking directly to the mp3 index page.

deftype :: Gemischtwaren EP

Silent Hill Beautification AssociationDetails for deftype - Gemischtwaren EP

I've been in a cinematic state of mind as I've been prowling the set of "Silent Hill" trying to snap some pics without much luck. deftype's ep, "Gemischtwaren", has the kind of vibe I'm hoping the movie will capture as the SH video game was quite creepy.

From the release notes:

"You can find a sort of mixture of lofi beats, electro, classical instruments,Hitchcock-Atmospheres, simulated acoustic percussions and much more. Sometimes some kind of melody appears from the background of filled dark cyberlogical streets. All in all, its not easily graspable in stylistic or genre-terms at all."

Kplecraft :: KNMS-001

Details for Kplecraft :: KNMS-001 [mtk146]

Internet Archive and Monotonik....these are two of my favourite things. I'm about to a add a third favourite thing, Kplecraft. Check out a snip from the bio:

"Here's what you need to know. Kplecraft consists of Kuske (Nintendo Game Boy with Nanoloop 1.2, saxophone, effects, etc.) and Eddie (percussion, conga, etc.) It is, more or less, a bleep side project of the Japanese jamband PCIA, in a similar way, perhaps, that Eat Static and Ozric Tentacles interact, and oddly enough, it's the blend of jamming and solid electronic beats that somewhat recall both of those bands, as well as other marvellous oddities like the Holistic Records crew from the Isle Of Wight."

Twin Cities Electropunk Volume 2

Twin Cities Electropunk Volume 2

A worthy successor to Volume 1, TCEV2 features many of the same artists that made the first release such an incredible find plus some new artists that push the number of tracks to 16 as opposed to 10 on the first collection.

The driving force behind these two collections is Todd Millenacker aka Avenpitch, who leads off the compilation with the hyper-tempoed track "Jack The Idiot Dance." The stand out track for me, among the many other great ones, is "Broken Waters" (different mix than compilation track) by Endless Blue, a downtempo/triphop tune that really resonates. Reminiscent of early James, "Planting Flowers" by Tim Rally Gold is a guitar driven track that concentrates more on the punk of electropunk.

Check out track listing for both volumes of Twin Cities Electropunk.

Sijis Radio :: Down with the Chairman

Sijis Radio :: Down with the Chairman

As the host of my own netlabel/netaudio radio show I'm always on the lookout for others of my kind. Down with the Chairman, hosted by Mark McLaren, was the first show that I found that fits the bill. I think the first episode I caught was 13 but now they are at 32 so there is plenty of material to catch up with. Helpfully the following two episodes re-cap the best, most interesting music featured in the past year broken down into two different genres of music: dance / experimental and song based / shoegazing / indie-tronica based tunes.

bit_rock alumnae :: electronic collective

bit_rock alumnae :: electronic collective

While plumbing the depths of's netlabel scene I found something that hits close to home. Very close to home. "live at CMFU - nybbl meets kawula [hc105]". Indeed this is a live recording from the very heart of Squares Cubed country released via hippocamp. Following the trail of breadcrumbs further lead me to bit_rock alumnae:

"The bit_rock alumnae is an informal collective of electronic music producers based in and around Toronto. We decided to get together during the winter of 2004 for the purposes of supporting each other, strengthening the local independent electronic scene, and trying to stay warm. All of us recognized the difficulties in finding an accepting audience for our music outside the rock and dance club scene, so we decided to join forces to make things happen."

Check out some tracks from the bit_rock alumnae sampler #1:

Mystechs :: Omega Point Records

Mystechs :: Omega Point Records

Their official bio compares Mystechs to Zappa, Ween and Outkast which should give you some indication of were their release is coming from. At first listening I wasn't exactly sure how I felt about the music. I didn't like or dislike it. Only after a few more listens was I able to appreciate Mystechs deadly style of musical kung-fu. I could try to explain the sound but its much easier to just link to the tracks themselves.
