So I went through some interesting musical phases this year. During January and February (and maybe March), I was into Industrial Rock (Rabies-era Puppy, Ministry, etc.). For the next couple of months, I was really fixated on krautrock and technoid (well, I'm still into technoid, so that's kind of a moot point). By August or so, I discovered the thrills of minimal techno (hell-- I live in LA. How could I not get caught up in the minimal techno craze?). Over the last several months, I've been obsessively listening to (and making) glitchy music, lowercase electronic music, and older braindance (Cex, early Aphex, older Squarepusher, etc.). No real point to this post, other than that I'm really excited to see where 2009 will take me in terms of music. Industrial will probably always be with me (even when I'm 84 and on a feeding tube), but I'm really curious as to what I'll discover over the next months.
Anyway, happy 2009.
