Ever since We Think You're Dishy and Stiff Jazz introduced me to electronica I've been intrigued but not fully converted. Generic repetitive club techno has always bored me, so B(if)tek's beeps and bleeps seemed a beautiful anomaly of synth, and I leaned more towards house and downtempo. Then on 11 June 2006 I found myself transfixed at the electronica listening station at Zulu Records by this amazing collection of synth noises seemlessly woven into the most infectious sonic experience imaginable. Since then I have become fully immersed into minimal and microhouse, Kompakt and the australian synth collective clan analogue, seeking out a whole new world of artists, but I keep coming back to the one and only Isolee.
#2 - Hayley Sales
My girlfriend saw Hayley opening for Cat Empire at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, and came home with this fantastic EP Keep Driving. She has such a rich voice, great lyrics, and catchy tunes that she's sure to be a hit. …

1 Oct 2006, 04:29 by LaFleurDuMalSo, a friend and I have assumed control of a 2 hour chunk of radio waves. I don't think the show is going to have much of a theme, it's going to be a very eclectic blend of music. A lot of world music (we're talking the full spectrum from Brazil to India to Ukraine), jazz, post-rock, prog, classic rock (anything that's old and good), trip-hop, neofolk, darkwave, fusion, (there won't be a whole lot of metal, just the occasional foray even though that's one of my more favorite types of music. I'm considering getting another show and devoting it entirely to metal). Really, anything that strikes our fancy.
The thorn in my paw is that we are unfortunately required to play 8-10 new releases each show (things that are no older than about 6-8 months). I do not often keep up on new releases and need help compiling a list of some very cool, strange, eclectic new releases. My list of things that are new releases right now (that I'm considering playing) is extremely limited and I would really appreciate any suggestions. So far I have:

September 11, 2006
Ratatat / Envelopes
I only caught a few Envelopes songs, but my god did they look young. Couple that with the Ratatat fans and I think i'm finally too old for this brand of hipster junk.
September 8 & 9, 2006
Touch and Go 25th Anniversary at the Block Party. I'll probably make another entry about this, but i managed to see these bands:
GVSB / Ted Leo + Pharmacists / !!! / Pegboy / Tim & Andy of Silkworm / The Ex / Killdozer / Didjits / PW Long / Negative Approach/ Scratch Acid / Man…or Astroman? / Big Black / Shellac
July 13, 2006
Animal Collective / Battles
Really similar set to Chicago. Battles is exactly the kind of thing that i cant get enough of live, but i find boring on album. They were great here and I was sorry to miss the first part of their set.
May 18, 2006
Only caught 4 songs but one of them was Mind's Eye so that was great. I've never seen a keyboard rocked so hard.
