Kraftwerk is a German band. They virtually invented electronica. They charted a hit in the US in the 70s with a tune called "Autobahn." Their music is minimalist and all electronic, tricky rhythms, weird monotone vocals. Their self-description is "robot pop."
Naturally, they have a website. (http://www.kraftwerk.com/)
To further confuse this issue, Kraftwerk (and it is a great CD!) stuff in analog, not digital. If that means anything. Synths and amps all have tubes (I believe) not fancy pants chips. The sound is very different from other popular electronic popular music such as Orchestral Manoevers in the Dark, Ultravox or Flock of Crybabies.

What a good one. I can't tell if I like this one or Darklands more. Both are majorly underappreciated albums of the '80's.
Right now: the new single by Arcade Fire "Cold Wind" which is new stuff since Funeral.
Soon: The Kings of Convenience's Quiet is the New Loud.

I am no "alt-country guy" but this album transcends labels. It's damn good, through and through. Pretty, sad, celebratory.

Have heard of for years but until recently never listened to Django Reinhardt. I'm glad that my guitar playing is strictly chords and that I never try to play solos or melodies; I'd burn the old Takamine otherwise. What drive, imagination, melodic sense, and all played with a left hand that was mostly scar tissue.

I was wandering, Do any of you guys listen to music while your out on the road or do you believe it to be a little too dangerous???...
i ride with ear buds, if i feel the traffic situation is too hectic or something, ill pop the earbuds loose so i can hear traffic as well as my tunes. ive found that the important noises (sirens...etc)still get through anyway, and the annoying ones (honking cars) are at least dulled down so as not to be so annoyi8ng..... but music? : : ive been listening to The Aprils, Walls of Jerecho, and Sparta Locals alot lately... not to mention any jungle techno i can get my hands on (eggcellent riding music)

When I bike, I prefer to listen to something fast and rhythmic. Techno is good, but I get bored of it quickly. Metallica is ok for me, Sabbath, Pantera, Zeppelin, Hendrix. Drums only, like Mike Portnoy solos. Slayer is good too.
