Whenever I am feeling pessimistic or just plain pissed off, I kick back and enjoy some music. I just purchased the latest Squarepusher album, Ultravisitor. After listening to it a couple of times it is really growing on me. It makes me want to play my bass again. I have also been going through all of my old CD's and ripping them into MP3 format on my work computer. It is pretty fun rediscovering stuff I haven't listened to in years. Even if the fascists stay in power, good music will continue to be made somewhere in the world. At least I have that to look forward to.

I'm glad to hear the new Squarepusher = t3h g0oD. I saw it in the record store a few days ago but neglected purchasing it because I had mixed feelings about "Do You Know Squarepusher." That wasn't really a fair assessment, though, because I only listened to it a few times and perhaps just needed to let it grow on me.

PS - Ratatat have an album out now. Buy it or your life will be filled with pain. BoC-style hair-rock has never been better.

My goodness, BoC-style hair rock? I must hear this stuff. I am imagining a shrieking voice singing about hot women in fast cars over a guitar power-chord riff, with the sounds of birds chirping and children laughing in the background. Are there Mp3 samples of Ratatat available anywhere for my enjoyment?

Sadly, there are no shrieking vocals. But the power-chord riffs are there in force to complement the 80s synths.
has one mp3 (Seventeen Years, under "Audio")
