Twisted Tools 33% Off December

Big discounts are apparently the thing this month which is good to find as I'm newly exploring and/or rediscovering what's out there. I was looking around for iPad controlled instruments and effects and came across Twisted Tools and its Scapes effect software which can be controlled with lemur on the iPad. Crazy stuff. Or Krazy stuff, if you're talking electronic lingo, I suppose.

Twisted is offering 33% off this month and you don't need to enter a code to get it, it's discounted automatically when you place any item in your cart.

In Review: Charles Rice Goff II - Genre Party

By way of a privileged perch at Tapegerm Collective I've had the pleasure of seeing parts of this album unfold. And by "pleasure" I mean this album tickles many of my pleasure points.

It's a challenging album. Charles Goff's invention always sounds in peak form, and his invention here is constantly percolating some kind of brew or another -- and it's going to taste surprising whatever it turns out becoming.

Revolution 999, for instance is a cover of the Beatles' Revolution 9. Beloved for ranging reasons by experimental music lovers, the original has a firm place in our minds and takes many of back to a different time. Goff has reinterpreted here while keeping the original's sense and feel. What I kept finding intriguing and beautiful is how Charles weaves various motifs from 9 into 999, always unexpectedly. I find myself caught up in the interplay of sounds and then harkening back to the original as a familiar theme makes an appearance.

Goff calls the style of Genre Party "dada" which effectively describes the idea of a "Genre Party" -- a wild mix of genres. There is everything from twenties swing to electronics composed and melodic. It often bends decidedly off-kilter and is decidedly fun while doing so.

Listen to some fun and exciting music here, folks.
