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."
