Kind of a guilty sonic pleasure.

Years ago, some girl gave me Pulse by Pink Floyd, but she somehow switched with another disc at her place or mine or on some trip and I never got a replacement.

15 years go by...

At Zia the other day, there was a used copy, so I figured I may as well make things right (with the CD situation.)

Well, damn.

I played the live DSOM section and that fucker puts up a giant seamless soundstage that has some sort of doodad processing that makes things happen way outside the usual imaging margins and even created the sensation of sounds coming from behind.

They had done a similar show in Oakland a coupe years before this disc came out, and this CD kills it - better than live, except for the lack of chicks wearing only body paint in my listening room.

If you are any bit a Pinkie fan, then this live take will please you. Lots of it is prerecorded, but it gives a great 'concert' feel.

I've been using it to warm up for The Flaming Lips DSOM coming soon!

We actually set that up - twice. It's alot of work!

Once was outdoors on a lake and it was pretty impressive!

I'm waiting for the right evening to fire up Yoshimi in 5.1 DVD-A. I saw them on Austin City Limits play with Beck. They were a great analog to Beck's studio strangeness.

Re: Kind of a guilty sonic pleasure.

In May the Flaming Lips will release their version of DSOM. You can stream it online now.

I think it may go well with Dub Side of the Moon.

Also, I just got hold of the new Grace Jones. Haven't played it through yet, but it reminded me...Grace Jones' Nightclubbing is one of the greatest sonic diso/dance/pseudoreggae/Sly&Robbie disc of all time.

9.85 out of 10.

Bad day at the office, which I'm combating with a not-so-guilty pleasure from the 90s, 'The Carl Stallings Project.'

Selected Stereolab on a good system (loud). Always a strange pleasure for me. Maybe it's the girls singing in French (and I can't understand a word). Maybe it's the hypnotic music. Maybe it's the intrigue of being in a foreign place. Not every day music, but when the urge hits, I'm there! My wife doesn't like it at all.

I love the Stereolab

"Cobra and Phases group play voltage in the milky night" disk.

Really cool stuff.

Re: Kind of a guilty sonic pleasure.

I love Stereolab, DSOTM, and The Lips as well. Nice to be in such educated and refined company. 8)

May I recommend the band Ivy to those of us who enjoy Stereolab? Another French singer, trancey music, and bass from the Fountains of Wayne.

Highly Recommended.

Re: Kind of a guilty sonic pleasure.

Thanks, I'll check out Ivy.
I've seen Stereolab live twice in the last 6 years and their shows are very good. Hypnotic stuff. Lots of people on the dance floor. Check out Fab Four Suture
