I've listened to the new album once, and I dig it. There might be "jazz"
elements to this disc, but it's really concise and integrates well with
the classic Meat Beat sound. I really like "Want Ads." Now I'm really
looking forward to the tour.
I bought by copy at Newbury Comics, although as others have said,
CDUniverse has a nominally low price and if you can get the shipping
overhead down, more power to you. Darla has the Henry Jacobs CD+DVD for
I placed an order with them a few weeks ago (60s light pop, Merzbow, and
the Factory/Benelux video compilation "Umbrellas In the Sun") and they
have excellent service.
Back to MBM: The 7" single is pretty cool -- the live Silver Apples
cover is a hoot, going from cloning the original to a near free-form
freakout, while "Radio Free Republic" has some great shortwave samples.
It's the first new vinyl I've bought in, oh, three years or so. Better
watch out, though -- the first time I tried to flip the disc, I could
barely get it off the spindle, because the Czech pressing is so solid
that the disc barely flexes at all !
