Albert E. Trapezoid
I am Albert E. Trapezoid. I can never get enough music, and I like to share the good stuff I find.
There’s all kinds of interesting people out there making all kinds of interesting noise, so let’s enjoy it together.
I like all kinds of music, but on this site I tend to lean a bit toward the more obscure or offbeat side of things.
I hope you’ll explore around.
Inside/Beside V – I’ve said it before, and I’m sure I’ll say it again in the future: I love a good compilation. This recent one from Kalamine Records almost feels like it was made specifically for me; it’s full of covers of songs from bands I love, including Joy Division, Einstürzende Neubauten, Fad Gadget, Kraftwerk, The Normal, The Residents, and, well, post-punk icon (?)

This is the third in the Inside/Beside series, and if this is the measure of the quality on the previous two entries then I am just going to have to gird my loins and investigate them too [ continue reading… ]
A Miscellany of Tasteful Music/Art/Film/Litis a blog-zine dedicated to reviewing old and new artistic material from a non political point of view.
My art and music tastes hover from Baroque to Avant-Garde/Experimental. If you consider yourself as open-minded as you think you are, consider that people of a different political, moral and ethical persuasion might just be into the same music, film, literature and art that you’re into, and might teach you a thing or two about it .
Inside/Beside I – V/A Compilation – Kalamine Records is an experimental music label out of Bordeaux, France. They have a very impressive roster of composers and groups who have a amazing command of studio techniques, making filmic, creepy compositions. This is essential headphone listening [ continue reading… ]
