Gramm - "Personal Rock" from 1999 (2019 reissue shown here)
What can I say? I like my electronic music German.
The other day I talked about Jan Jelinek. Well, here's maybe my favorite of his releases. And while I love everything he's done, this is certainly his most accessible release and therefore maybe not super indicative of him as an artist. All that aside, I love this LP and highly recommend it as it is currently in print and available. So buy it!
Frenzy is a hardcore/noise band from Portland, OR that I’ve really taken a liking to. They put out their first disc 8 years ago and I’ve managed to get their entire official discography. This is some of my favorite recent punk. In addition to the music, I also love the art style of all their releases. Releases like this prove that good art can be a hell of a complement to good music!
The three 7” records from left to right:
1. Noizey Trouble (2012 - Debut EP)
2. Attack SS/Frenzy (2013 - Split 7” with Japanese noisecore band Attack SS on the A side and Frenzy on the B side)
3. Disconnected (2015)
The 12” on the bottom is their 2019 self-titled first album.

Blackalicious’s The Craft is an excellent album that often gets overlooked because it dropped in 2005 after the Underground surge. Gift of Gab is excellent as always, but Chief Xcel really (excuse the pun) excelled on this album. Hearing George Clinton on a Quannum made so much sense to me too. Gift of Gab signed this in January about 3 days before his kidney replacement surgery. The auto itself isn’t the best, but he was such a nice guy and busted his tired and sick ass on the stage. .

As an introductory post to this account, I thought I’d share my ever growing vinyl collection! Most of these vinyls are by Emerson, Lake and Palmer, but I do have two Yes albums (Close to the Edge and Relayer) as well as the movie score to the 1975 film “Rollerball” and the original Jesus Christ Superstar from 1970!
My Brand New 12” EP & LPs. I’ve been a Brand New fan for over a decade and a half now and I don’t think that will ever change. I got into them after Deja came out, which I’d always considered a little late, but honestly? It’s never too late to enjoy great music. And now my kids get to enjoy Brand New along with us (you should hear our rendition of Soco Amaretto Lime we sing/play for them at bedtime)!
