Distant Lands

At Distant Lands, Lorenzo Moog, the store manager, points out special items from the store’s vast collection of rare and unusual antiques from northern China, Tibet and Mongolia. Highlights include a Tibetan urn from Sezo; a 350-year-old, ten-panel screen made of Chinese elm (in perfect condition); and a rare scholar’s stone from the Hebei Province: The Chinese call such stones, which are balanced on carved wooden stands, the "bones of the earth."

Wendy Carlos's Switched-On Bach is one of those rare novelty recordings that never gets boring. In the capable hands of Carlos, Bach's keyboard masterpieces sound like they were made for the otherworldly blurps, farts, and chimes of a Moog synthesizer. And, in a sense, they were. Bach's inventive music doesn't lose any of it's contrapuntal punch in these complicated arrangements and, novelties aside, the playing is great on this Grammy Award-winning classic. Whether performing Bach's "Two-Part Inventions," "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring," or "Wachet Auf," Carlos offers one-of-a-kind interpretations, her synthesizers still sounding as otherworldly as they did in 1968. This is one of those weird and wonderful classical releases that anyone--classical scholar or pop enthusiast--can enjoy. A Switched-On box set exists, capturing most of Carlos's baroque-gone-berserk output, but this is the disc that started it all. In a word, fun. --Jason Verlinde

  • With their third album Clarity being one of the most overlooked masterpieces of 1999, Static Prevails is Jimmy Eat World paying their dues in 1996.

With their third album Clarity being one of the most overlooked masterpieces of 1999, Static Prevails is Jimmy Eat World paying their dues in 1996. It could be the slight over-production (a curse that has always haunted the band), being on a major label for the first time, or them trying to get a feel for pulling fancy studio tricks (i.e., numerous backing vocals, cellos, and Moog additions). Maybe it's all three, but what Static Prevails essentially lacks is the songwriting maturity that Jimmy Eat World could have perfected; but it's almost as if the studio heads at Capitol wouldn't let them so that there would be more room for radio-friendly pop songs. In the end, nobody won. However, tracks such as "Anderson Mesa," "Call It in the Air," and "Seventeen" don't cross that line of boring alternative rock but remain in that aggressive pop status. Nothing close to classic, but definitely a sign of better things to come. ~ Mike DaRonco, All Music Guide « less… more »

The last Beatles album to be recorded (although Let It Be was the last to be released), Abbey Road was a fitting swan song for the group, echoing some of the faux-conceptual forms of Sgt. Pepper, but featuring stronger compositions and more rock-oriented ensemble work. The group was still pushing forward in all facets of its art, whether devising some of the greatest harmonies to be heard on any rock record (especially on "Because"), constructing a medley of songs/vignettes that covered much of side two, adding subtle touches of Moog synthesizer, or crafting furious guitar-heavy rock ("The End," "I Want You (She's…

More than a little love went into this Paul Vo instrument with magnetic pickups that work their magic directly on the strings' motion. Full infinite sustain is possible, as well as active muting, and harmonic blending.

The sound it creates is just magnificent and it's clean and simple panel design and look is impeccable. Add MIDI interfacing capabilities and you've got a synth that can you can perform with and can fully integrate and grow with your studio. Highest Recommendation.

Made up of members of S.T.U.N., Circus Minor aand The Start, Street Drum Corps has been working together since 2004 to "search for different sounds and make the world a better place" according to co-founder Bobby Alt. Kevin Lyman describes the group as a "punk-rock STOMP." Using both conventional and unusual instruments such as hand drums, acoustic drum kits, marching band equipment and a Moog Theremin along with household items like buckets, kitchenware and recycled aluminum garbage cans, Street Drum Corps certainly bring something unique to the table.

Their music has never disappointed my deep need for quirky, left-field electronics. These two guys are blissfully out of their minds and having fun! On a serious tip, Matmos really knows how to modulate sound. Liner Notes: Arp, Korg, Roland, Waldorf, Moog, Doepfer, Suzuki Omnichord, Coupigny, EVI/Electronic Voice Instrument: all synth brands the very mention of which make vintage gear fetishists salivate. These also happen to provide the sole sound sources for Matmos’ new album. That’s right, no contact mics on scalps, mollusks, or the CNS for these recordings! Not to fear though, the same sensibility is behind the manipulation of these pre-synthesized sounds into a tasty and distinctly Matmosian dish.
