Slicing Up Eyeballs, 2009-2015: It’s the end of the world as we know it (and I feel fine)

The cassettes used in the original header/logo design, as they’ve sat since the site launched. [tweetmeme]On Feb. 20, 2009, Slicing Up Eyeballs launched onto the web not with a bang but a whimper, debuting with a simple 91-word declaration and a headline cribbed from an R.E.M. song that Google Analytics now tells me was not viewed by a single person that day (which seems a bit off, since I’m fairly certain I looked at it at least once myself)….

Golden Dawn Meet and Greet Mixtape (with a tip of the hat to Christopher Lee)

Golden Dawn Meet and Greet Mixtape (with a tip of the hat to Christopher Lee)

Last time The Passenger got in touch with us, he referred to one of his recent tapes (this one) as something that would be suitable “for that awkward moment when you have to pick some music to play at the golden dawn meet n greet”. That image stuck in our heads, so we asked him if he would kindly put together a mixtape for us that would fulfil that exact purpose. Here you have the…

Inference

We have had the privilege of featuring several Dramatic Records artists in the past, including cultural anthropologist Gabo Gulbenkian, Vienesse alt-schlager star Rasmus Folk or derailed business consultant Hans Tanza. Each of them brings, in addition to wonderful sounds, the baggage of a legendary biography spent slumming in the liminal interstices between the European art, media and knowledge-intensive business services industries. These are areas where the forces of the market are twisted, bent and dissolved…

The Island of Dr. Riley

The Island of Dr. Riley

Like so much melancholy 70s sci-fi, we find ourselves exiled on an island paradise where all is not as it seems.  Glistening white towers rise out of forests and silent 4x4s glide over dirt paths to and from glistening beaches.  Beaches bookended by yet more white towers, their expansive verandas gazing out over the sea. People move about in loose fitting jumpsuits all looking blissful.  Clasping in their hands A Rainbow in Curved Air and…

Atop Templo Mayor dancing for rain

Atop Templo Mayor dancing for rain

The spirit of dance music stalks us, always.  Like a particularly fond addiction, it waits eternally for us to succumb  to its charms.  And so it was with Boan’s debut LP.  Arriving at the beginning of the month on Holodeck, it’s haunted our digital music aether ever since. So much so that we found ourselves — the 20JFG gestalt — at the newly renovated Audio Patterns to see the incomparable Optimo on a Saturday night.  There was dancing.  We…

SATURDAY MIXTAPE : Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me

SATURDAY MIXTAPE : Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me

  My clone awakes crying – as younger clones often do. I take it in my arms and whisper, then sing and rock the clone for an unspecified time until its fears have subdued, then gently lay it back down to sleep. This happens in repeating cycles at unspecified moments throughout the darkness. As i clamber back into my recharging bay my co-unit reaches out to ask if our clone and myself are ok. We embrace and fall…

Cerberus: Trupa Trupa – Blue Seventeen: Headache

Cerberus: Trupa Trupa – Blue Seventeen: Headache

By Strauss on Jul 06 2015 I have to admit that it’s been a while since a rock band was able to give me that real “woah” factor without resorting to completely deconstructing everything altogether. That’s not to say Polish quartet Trupa Trupa doesn’t break away from form, or experiment with style by any means. But instead of crumpling our old pal rock and roll into its palm, the band circles around concrete songs, stretching…
