    Rave Recs Sampler - Revenge of the Monkey!

    So....all the copies of the latest Current Rotation Sampler have been turned over to the USPS and should be arriving on your shores within the next few days after the long weekend, if you were one of the 18 contributors to this sampler. Hope you all enjoy. This was a fun one to put together and I was turned onto a lot of cool new music. Like I said in another post, it's always hard to find the right place for every song, especially when some of them are a bit outside the predominant style, which in the case of the latest CRS is a bit on the ecelctic side of indie pop/rock, with a lot of David Bowie and Frank Zappa and Brian Wilson and early Beatles influence running throughout. Along with some Gang of Four tangents and a celebration of that early LA punk meets country sound of X, And some easily digestible math rock on both ends of the comp, the early one is even xylophone enhanced, and with somewhat nonsensical lyrics from this little-known Austrian band. And we couldn't have a 2005 CRS without sneaking in one of the early knockouts of the year in the form of art-punkers from the UK, Bloc Party. What a killer rhythm section. Unless they self-destruct, these guys are here to stay for a long while. And big releases from Beck and Spoon, both Rave Recs faves. And a late rockin' country-blues arrival from Texas in the form of Bobby Bare Jr. that knocked me for a loop and invaded my head for days, and still does. I'm getting CRS flashbacks. Wait til you hear that amazing opener from Jimbo! If I ever said anything bad about his musical taste (and I know I must've because he doesn't even like the Beatles!!!!), I publicly stand corrected. Very cool.

    Anyway, if you weren't one of the contributors and want to score a copy of this coolest of the cool comps, get in touch with one of those contributors because my job is done. Snooze ya lose. History. Finito!

    I'll add it later to the Rave Recs Group Comps thread, but for now you can get the details from my site at http://members.mailaka.net/davey/comps.htm#CRSV10. Have a great weekend. Just scored a 12-pack of Beck's on sale for $10.99 and with one of those instant $3.00 off coupons on the package, making it only $7.99! Tastes better when you get it for cheap

    as for that Bobby Bare Jr. cut, the whole album is nothing less than stellar, IMO...............and thanks for reminding me I haven't spun it lately. Right after Van's new release that I picked up today.

    O that- it's the cover to a very fine release from last year- Joseph Arthur's Our Shadows Will Remain. And that reminds me I haven't spun it lately, either- too much music........

    Talking Hey Dave looking forward to hearing it

    Thanks for all the hardwork putting this thing together.

    The track listing looks good with some new stuff I have marked down as wanting to hear (Beck, Spoon, 13 & God) and loads of stuff I've never even heard of before. Of course I'm sure the sequencing will be exemplary.

    Cheers
    Mike

    Exemplary? Hehehe, that'll be the day!

    Some of it's good and some of it's not so good. Que sera. There's some rough spots in the middle but it's pretty listenable overall. I took a few liberties with some of the songs, including trimming the beginning of the tentoze selection and trimming the end of audiobill's and adding some farm noises over the slow fadeout ending of KEXPMF's to keep up the interest level for Troy's headache inducer. Little stuff like that mostly. Hope no one gets miffed. I'll make more comments later after some of them are in circulation

    Thanks again for doing the heavy-lifting on this one, Dave. It never occurred to me to ask before, but did you have my Batavia addy? Hopefully so; I'm looking forward to this one.

    Batavia? Isn't that someplace in eastern Europe? Didn't I just read in the paper of a big toxic chemical catastrophe?

    Hah, just kidding. Don't have my list with me but Batavia sounds familiar so I'm 99% sure that was one of the target zones. If not, so sorry buddy! Maybe Slosh can help you out

    Happy landings to all the little CRS packages!

    BTW, isn't it time that you and the Slosh pick some cute little avatar to call your one and only?

    Thanks for the work Davey. Going to go straight to my mailbox with my fingers crossed.

    For the official record, if anyone likes the opener it's due more to Davey than me. I sent along the disc with three (3!!!) choices on it and he emailed back asking for permission to use a completely different one! So much for any alleged taste I may have developed. Actually I really like most of the tracks on the album but some of it is kind of "out there" and I was trying to be safe. This one is operating without a net.

    Looking forward to hearing it.

    {sigh} I suppose it is. Any suggestions? I'm not sure where to find a cool one, and I'm not even sure how to put it in my profile (though I could prolly figure it out).

    Oh, and that "chemical spill" in Batavia? Don't tell anyone, but that was just Mrs. MidFi lotioning my back.

    Listening to it as I type. Started off very strong, now I'm into a little weaker section for my own tastes. We'll see. A quick scan reveals that I only have 6 of the 19 albums represented which by my figuring is a very good thing. New music is just around the bend. Just hope it's better than the Mike Keneally track NP. I guess if you like Zappa, this could work. If you don't, you're just hosed.

    Hey Madina, I've got your copy too! I'll give you a call tonight.

    Anyone else in need of a copy just PM me with your addy and I'll take care of the rest. Yeah, even that one guy.

    LOL, it really IS a tough fit in this low-fi, indie mix, innit?

    You shoulda heard the other song I sent to Davey . . .

    I dig track 17.

    Hey! At least I asked! That's probably my favorite song on the comp. I used a tune by nobody that he didn't even suggest and that I didn't even ask him about. I used it because I like it. Curator's discretion. But in my own defense, he did tell me I could do whatever I like with the album. Hope I didn't go too far

    I think that's just about all my confessions for now. Most of the rest came out pretty much wysiwyg.

    Man, this one is all over the place. It's hard for my brain to make the jump sometimes from track to track, but, I need to let this sink in. Sometimes the transitions become smoother after one is more familiar with the songs I definately agree that the first 3 tracks are great.. I don't think I've ever heard anything quite like the Helsinki track. The next two are kind of up my alley.. both kind of fuzzy with a big of that gool ol' post punk bass that's such the rage with the kids today. Working my way through a 2nd listen today. Will definately post a track-by-track after a few more days with this. Thanks Davey!
