Beta Blockers

Excuse the slight dishevelment around here at the minute. We've moved to this new-fangled Beta Blogger thing which will apparently make our lives (as bloggers) even easier. And look! Labels! Wowee. Anyway, the logo (or a new one?) will be back soon and Diarmaid has designs on redecoration.


You might remember Dano recently posted SCSI-9's incredibly good "Senorita Tristeza" recently. I got my hands on its parent long-player, The Line of Nine this week. Released in May this year, the album builds on a string of really rather good releases for Kompakt, Trapez and others, plowing a nicely understated techy, minimal furrow coupled with some frequently beeee-autiful hooks (see "Mini" and "When She Said Goodbye" if you want your heart broken in the loveliest way possible).

Bumpy bass and lush pads. From Russia with love.

SCSI-9 - Elegia

If you're looking for more of these Russian wizards' material, they have an MP3 EP out for free on the Fragment netlabel, Ich Kann Nicht Anders which I can also thoroughly recommend. More dubby and experimental, but still with a meticulously crafted, warm sound.

Oh, plus - anybody see Oliver Stone make an absolute twat out of himself at the British Comedy Awards? Now you can, over and over and over!
