HOLY CRAP. YEAH.

I am so far out of this universe right now, high on Tekkonkinkreet and Blitzen Trapper. Tekkonkinkreet was freaking amazing. Japanese animation is beyond incredible (not so much a fan of manga or anime but it just goes to show you have to give everything a chance!). Directed by Michael Arias, this film is jam packed with impossible visuals, intense plot, and of course great music by Plaid (see earlier post). I can’t describe how fulfilling this movie was.

Currently listening to Blitzen Trapper, a mixture of country, indie rock, and electronic. What separates this band from others in my ears are the fast paced chord changes. I’m an impatient listener so this was just perfect.

For those of you trying to make your own music, Blitzen Trapper released their first three albums on their own, using their own home built studio. Sound quality not all that great, but look where it got them. Use what you have and make something of it!

The picture is deceiving. This is a 2 guy gig. Plaid is a UK based band created by Andy Turner and Ed Handley. Their music is created using computer technology…and I think they must have an alien friend helping them out too (hence the extra dude in the picture, i think). Anyways, just discovered them today when I was looking at the opening credits for Tekkonkinkreet and all I could focus on was the music. Enjoy!
