…but Fraserhead prefers to think of it as giving the music some room and letting it breathe. WTF? That’s right, The Herb Whisperer is away today so Fraserhead is flying solo. Expect sparse voice breaks, minimal mixing, lots of triple plays, and maybe some Kenny Loggins.
Huge thanks to regular listener Greg Dodds for tipping us off about TRAAMS. Could happily leave this on repeat for the w-h-o-l-e show. But won’t. Have a listen below though…
We haven’t figured out if he is officially DatA or datA or DaTa or Data or dAtA. Usually this mixed-case fetish would ring alarm bells and play havoc with our nerdy iTunes naming conventions but David Guillon has just released the funnest, guilty pleasure of an electro album for 2009 in the form of “Skywriter”.
Maybe the sugar rush will wear off but loved it so much had to play three tracks on the show today. Love the wailing guitars and emo sentiments (“Rapture”), vocoders (“So much in love”), and even more wailing guitars and synth stabs (“Renaissance Theme”).
Can’t believe we made it through that last paragraph without once mentioning Alan Braxe, Fred Falke or Justice.
