simian mobile disco/speaking in code
so i had two pretty great experiences lately. i saw simian mobile disco at the paradise. it's been over a year since the last time i saw them and they've only gotten better. they way they buildup and deconstruct their tracks was pretty incredible to watch. granted i think they are doing everything running off Live, but it still sounded damn good. then last night i saw "Speaking in Code" which i have been waiting to see every since i saw the trailer way over a year and a half ago. the movie is all about techno and follows a bunch of writers/djs/musicians as they try to find their place in the world while still being involved with the musical culture they love. it was funny/heartbreaking and it made me want to go home and do nothing but make new tracks all night. but instead i went to make it new and got drunk and danced. oh well. school is over for a while so i'm hoping to do nothing but make new stuff/finish old stuff and finish this EP.
