Study of Speech and Hearing at Bell Telephone Laboratories: The Fletcher Years
Technical Memoranda Issued by Acoustics Research Laboratory, Harvard University 1947-1971
Let me tell you, there are some smoking tracks on these releases.
Tomorrow, I may actually break the country barrier and purchase a Neko Case CD. Technically, it’s already broken since we own some Johnny Cash and kd lang but that’s so cliché that they don’t really count.
I come late to certain musical bands and trends. I remember hearing the Archers of Loaf in 1994 and thinking that they were terrible, amateurish and unlistenable. Then I really got into them around 1998, right when they were breaking up (though I did see their last tour).
In general, I can’t abide the level of irony and/or authenticity necessary to enjoy alt country. I remember when my friend Jayson really got into alt country (he also tried to get me into the Archers in ’94). I just couldn’t take it, but knowing myself, I said “give me five years and we’ll see.” Well, it’s been way more than five years, but Neko Case is heavily produced and I love all the reverb on everything on the new album. So I’ll see what happens when I take the plunge. Also, I am buying more King Tubby if I’ve got time on my errands (different stores).
