Another Korean film to keep your eyes out for, Moss is about a man who travels to a remote village for his father’s funeral only to find that the villagers might be hiding something about the death of his father.
You get what I’m trying to say from the title of the post. It is certainly and interesting combination and I’m anxious to hear the record. The members are Aaron E. and Ariana M. from Earlimart and Jason L. and Aaron B. from Grandaddy. I’m pretty sure everyone knew that Jason Lytle had to make music some how. Anyways as you can see from the picture below you can order their new stuff for $100! yeah I know. I’m usually all for bonus material, but not at the cost of $100 from a band I’ve never heard of. I’d have a hard time justifying that for Enigk or Kozelek let alone some question band. But maybe we’ll see years down the line I could be kicking myself.
The trailer for the final (two part) film of the Harry Potter series hit the net yesterday and it looks great.
Being the vinyl enthusiast that I am, I was very interested when I came across this article. It outlines the process for creating vinyl records:
Place the lacquer-coated aluminum disc on the lathe (the machine that records your music to the disc). This disc comes with a protective band wrapped around the outside; make sure this is removed. Place the lathe’s vacuum line in the center of the disc to keep it in place. Position the lathe’s cutter and microscope above the disc and begin a test cut around the outer rim of the disc, while checking under the microscope to make sure the cutter is properly aligned. Once the cutter is in its proper position, begin cutting from the outside-in, and play your attached recording through the lathe from front-to-back. This will transpose your music into tiny grooves onto the lacquer disc, which must then be used to create a metal mold.
