Not awful, but that wind-up at the end is silly...

Enjoying the polished, upbeat synthpop ALOT, but ... he really turned up the happy to 11 this time... going to have to binge on combichrist just to cleanse the palate.

Zero interest in the movie, ZERO!, but anyone try out the soundtrack sample?

Gaming / Strategy Games
« on: December 12, 2009, 12:27:27 PM »
I used to looooove sprawling strategy games like Civilizations and Galactic Civilizations, but they just don't seem to provide enough gratification anymore since I discovered eurogames like Settlers of Catan.

Anyone else get on the wagon? Do computer games still "do it" for you?

Name That Song! / Can you tell me what this track is?
« on: September 21, 2009, 09:27:03 PM »
OK, I don't THINK this is on DG, in fact I'm 99.99% sure it isn't, but maybe you can help me figure this one out, anyway.

The song features heaven & hell combo of melodic female vocals and gritty male vocals, and has ABACA architecture, as those tracks typically do. Well... not KMFDM-gritty, but gritier than the female vocals. Not a lot of distortion on either. The whole thing is in 4/4 time, so it's not very danceable.

It starts out with some minimalist synths, then gets heavier as the looped basework chugs into a creshendo where male and female vocals actually sing the refrain, and they DO IT AT THE SAME TIME. There's a LOT of synth going on here, percussion is barely present at all, though guitars are definately chugging upbeats and break in several times for effect.

During the bridge, the rhythm accelerates as guitarwork goes haywire as a brassy sound playes counterpoint.

The lyrics are kind of trashy - not Angelspit-trashy - but the song is unabashedly about humping. Can't remember the lyrics very well, something about "Cause we seem to understand the urgency" and "searched through every open door".

Any ideas?
