Transmission Four

Various Artists

Space380

This is a strange little CD. I’m not even really sure what the purpose of it is. I’m guessing that the purpose of its existence is to get people to stroll on over to http://www.space380.com and check out their “free MP3 transmissions.” So, in theory, my having mentioned that completes their mission; however, there is the matter of this little CD…

In all actuality, this compilation is one of the better ones I’ve heard in quite some time. The best track here is a very haunting, Morrissey-esque song called “Who Left the Candles On?” by a gentleman named Nate Ashley. It’s incredibly cool, and has a Portishead feel to it. I liked it a lot! The majority of the songs are quite good, including tracks from My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Chris Connelly, Motorbaby, Immune, Anaya, and Alwan Sound.

A large gamut of musical styles are offered up on this CD, from rock to trance pop, yet it all works when plopped together. A very eclectic mix, and very enjoyable. Go to their site.

Flaming Ears

Screen Reviews

Set in the year 2700 in the imaginary city of Asche, Flaming Ears is a daring micro-budget sci-fi film from 1991 that envisioned a dystopian urban landscape that now seems eerily familiar. Lily and Generoso share their thoughts on the film’s new 4K restoration.
