Are there any out there that are worth looking into? Genres dont matter--in this thread, it's all good. List and discuss. Comments Reply 1 of 14 wrong robot Posts: 3,907member August 10, 2003 6:25PM I'd say just about anything by squarepusher, particularly though "music is a rotted one note" and "budakahn mindphone"Also I'd recommend this trio add n to (x) they make really interesting analog techno, that is, they all use old moogs and stuff, they share drummers with stereolab. I would recommend an album, but in truth they just keep getting better and they are all good(except their first one is a little...unconventional)On top of those I'd suggest you check out cornelius he is this japanese cat who makes his own stuff, produces, composes and plays all the instruments(electronic or real) he makes a very interesting combination of live instruments and electronic sampling and sequencing. Plus he has some really brilliant ideas.Right now I'm listening to the soundtrack to Final Fantasy X, I don't care what anyone says, this is a damn good soundtrack, a lot of it is electronic, but there are also many tracks with live playing(guitars and stuff) Just yesterday I was listening to Autechre, I hadn't listened to them in a long time so that was nice, autechre is really neat, but they do get terribly repetitive, If you are going to look into them get some EPs, they have some kick ass EPs.That's all I'll mention now, but I am a big fan of electronic music and could certainly suggest others if you want more.

I recommend the Mirror Conspiracy or Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi.

Strange the way that works sometimes. Reply 6 of 14 bunge Posts: 7,329member August 10, 2003 10:36PM Baldwin Brothers - Cooking With lasers. I guess it's a few years old, but I don't listen to much electronic music.Prior to that, I really enjoyed (and still enjoy) Whale - All Disco Dance Must End in Broken Bones. Reply 7 of 14 d.j. adequate Posts: 468member August 10, 2003 10:52PM I just heard Venus Hum in concert with the Blue Man Group. I really enjoyed them, and they had two powerbooks up on stage with them as well--so they get bonus points for that in my book. They have an odd combination of driving electronic music with lyrics about Montana and Lumberjacks. The lead singers voice is incredible. She shound a little like an American Bjork, but her voice is bit more theatrical. She did "I Feel Love' with the Blue Men and it was awesome.

Then, a few weeks ago, he found a site where he could download the sheet music to Final Fantasy X--and now he's teaching himself. The music isn't half bad.

I have "Tipper-On condition (Sour)" on my <Bill Nye>"Dry Erase Board of Songs to Buy"</Bill Nye> and can't find it ANYWHERE! I think it is good but it has been such a long time ago since I heard it.
