For my record check I’m putting up tracks that I’ve been into the past few weeks… no classics or miracle dollar bin tracks here, for that you can bug Pete to repost my old record check from like 5 years ago, replete with such records like “From the Choirgirl Hotel” and Shantel’s “Higher Than The Funk” LP.
“Eno import. Sigue Sigue Sputnik. Break beats. Serge Gainsbourg. Ryuchi Sakamoto, what are you guys stealing for other people now?”
My friend saw James Murphy at this bar called Snitch, and he was hanging out with sandals on. That alone makes him the best guy ever.
I think the first hip-hop song I ever heard stoned (and thus blew my mind to smithereens) was either this or Canibus’ “2nd Round KO”.
Temporary Secretary = the most insane Paul McCartney song ever.
Kyle from the NY Lab store used to play the “Music Scholar” track from this album a lot, and after awhile we started quoting it liberally.
-Oh, the Burrito Brothers couldn’t sing or play?
-Aaaah you know… the quality of the recordings were so weak.
This is my favorite Janet Jackson song. It’s so uplifting! It reminds me of Prince’s “Take Me With U” in terms of having that breezy feeling. The dub mix is insano.
This was a Lab record that Lloyd turned me onto. When he was crashing on my couch I realized that Lloyd spends 21 hours a day on the internets. Even when he’s asleep there’s like Rob Zombie’s “Halloween” streaming on his Mac.
Another competitor for best New Order song ever.
Every time I’m at 205 I hear this.
I was joking around with someone that there needs to be a house music karaoke night. Then you can stand in front of a giant screen with a mic saying “can you feeeel it! can you feeeeeel it! for 5 minutes. If there was, I would sing the shit out of this song.
