December 2000 Archives
Perennial Favorites by Squirrel Nut Zippers (Review)Another impressive jazz album from the North Carolina band.
Rare Tracks by Morrissey (Review)Many of these songs were so good that they should’ve been on Maladjusted instead of that album’s weaker tracks.
Felt Mountain by Goldfrapp (Review)This is undoubtedly one of the best things to happen in 2000.
Moist by Schneider Tm (Review)This is a very refreshing record.
Dual by Supercollider (Review)Compared to other post-rock artists, there’s something surprisingly raw and brutal about Supercollider’s music.
Normal Control Range (Bliss Out Vol. 16) by Technicolor (Review)While all of the songs are electronic in nature, they avoid falling into the normal trappings of your average dancehall fare.
Good Looking Blues by Laika (Review)There’s so much more substance here than anything produced by the average person alone in a basement doing electronically reconstructed jazz.
Sequence of the Negative Space Changes (Review)The whole disk is nice and airy, never a dissonant note for too long.
Per Aspera Ad Astra by Stars Of The Lid, Jon Mccafferty (Review)Pure contemplative magic.
Music for Modern Dance, Volume 1 by Bill Storch, John Storch (Review)This music is spirit glorified.
2000 Fold by Styles Of Beyond (Review)While it may be hip to be unknown and trendy to record for an independent label, you still have to make good music.
The Three Calamities by Switchblade Symphony (Review)So for all you cats whose Portishead tapes popped as a result of repeated listens, slide this in and you won’t miss a beat.
Destructor by Supremeex (Review)This album represents what Hip Hop can be when a focused artist is given the right amount of time and space.
Glimpse by Triangle Paradise (Review)You’re left with an EP that sounds like nothing more than a bar band covering old ’80s classics.
In the Fishtank 5 by Tortoise, The Ex (Review)Sounds like a Fugazi clone with a horn player and a strange sort of intensity that got lost in the translation.
On the Brink of Infinity by Various Artists (Review)Anyone who considers themselves a fan of World Serpent, Projekt, Cold Meat, or other similar labels would do themselves well to find a copy.
Owl Remix Low by Various Artists (Review)The best way to enjoy this disk is not really so much as a Low record, but as a relatively well-done compilation of electronic and ambient music.
The Black Mask Soundtrack by Various Artists (Review)An uneventful mix made up of mostly boring and pointless tracks.
