Music: adcBicycle LP
adcBicycle is a project I bumped into at em411. This album is one of the coolest things I've heard in a long time. Basically it sounds like happy accident after happy accident until finally an effortless-sounding cohesive album was finished.
Naturally, this probably wasn't how he created the album. I'm sure it was carefully planned and labored over, but I can't get over how naturally improvised it sounds. I've spent a lot of time playing improvised music with a lot of different people, so I'm familliar with the excitement of making something up with someone else and it sounding amazing on-the-fly. This album gives me that sensation when I hear some of the meandering electronica meshing perfectly with live instruments like drums and guitar. For you non-musicians, think of the feeling you get when you get when you're talking to someone and you both say the same thing at the same time.
For you lucky cheap-asses, the adcBicycle LP is available for free download! I bought my copy and am very proud to own it. Cool packaging too for being homemade!
