I just received the new Sshe Retina
Stimulants compact disc, "Central
Node Recording" (Nihil Market) from
Paolo Bandera. The recordings are
really rich sounding, and they are
full of depth. SRS once again delivers
a recording that is distinguished by
frequencies, both high and low, that
blast out of the speakers, while at the
same time, feel as if they are a part of a
cohesive composition. I am looking
forward to delving into this disc much

On a mostly unrelated note, I have
been playing the recent Warlocks
compact disc, "Rise and Fall" (Bomp)
rather ceaselessly. The Velvet
Underground and Spacemen 3
references are entirely justified, but
reviews seem to miss the narcotic
Rolling Stones influence that runs
through many of the songs.
