You can download a nice little performance by Grouper over at the Phoning It In website. Really interesting website over there. I quite like it. They have tons of stuff to listen to. Anyway, I should give props to Sean Herman who took the photo above. Check out his flickr page.

Managed to find these on the internet. Can’t wait for this to come out!
I keep meaning to buy the new Tortoise album and I just found this music video for one of the tracks from it. I Might just buy it this weekend seeing as it is payday. I really like this video. It’s pretty good.
When I ordered my Emperor Machine t-shirt from Sixpack.fr I also order this t-shirt. I have always been fascinated with mushroom clouds, so when I saw this t-shirt I had to order it. Its by a studio called Ill Studio who are based in France. The t-shirt comes with a little fanzine, which you can see some images of below.
McDonalds have been giving away free glasses with large meals again this summer. I got caught out in the rain during the summer and ended up in McDonalds so I bought a large meal and got a glass. I like how they are the shape of cans and actually hold the same amount.
The new mini lp by Broadcast & The Focus Group is out to download today from Bleep.com. You can also pre-order the LP and CD. I remember reading an article in The Wire years ago when Tender Buttons came out. Anyway, head to the Warp site for more info on the release.
I always feel a little bit sad when I complete a collection. Its a great feeling to have tracked things down and to know you have them all, but at the same time the thrill of the chase is over. Today I finally completed my Emperor Machine Aimee Tallulah Is Hypnotised collection. There is the CD version of the album, the LP version, the screenprint of the artwork and this t-shirt. I got my La Boca t-shirt from Sixpack.fr. I ordered this ages ago, but got it sent to France. I just got it from my brother who was out there last week. Brilliant! What else to collect now? I hope they release some Emperor Machine toys.
Well this came out about a month or so ago, but I was waiting on the vinyl turning up in the UK. It was £14.99, which is a bit much for a 10″ if you ask me. Anyway, it doesn’t matter I bought it. I also bought the download from Bleep as I couldn’t wait for the 10″. This is pretty good. Its just lots of instrumental hip hop tracks made up of some great samples. I can spot one that David Holmes used on the Free Association album. Anyway, if you like the Gaslamp Killer mixes, then this release is worth picking up. Expect some fuzzed out guitars, heavy drum breaks and Russian synths. Oh yeah, another thing that annoyed me about this release is that the tracks on the 10″ are not separated. This has also officially sold out now.
