Risky Business: Tangerine Dream

The score for Risky Business is 80s epic synth greatness courtesy of Mr. Edgar Froese & Tangerine Dream. This is Tangerine Dream’s most commercial movie score for they have scored over sixty-five other films as well as released over a hundred albums.

Here is my favorite track off the soundtrack, very Steve Reich:
Tangerine Dream – Love On A Real Train

These are some Tangerine Dream-esque sounding tracks. John Frusciante said that this song is directly influenced by Edgar Froese’s solo album, Epsilon In Malaysian Pale.
John Frusciante – 23 Go Into End

Guy-Man from Daft Punk helped produce this track
Sebastien Tellier – Sexual Sportswear

R.I.P. Gold Standard Laboratories

Gold Standard Laboratories Shutting Down

I guess October is the month for shutting down websites (New Oink) and closing up shop. GSL Records is citing Tony Wilson’s death (founder of Factory Records, Joy Division, New Order, A Certain Ratio & The Happy Mondays) as a sign that record labels such as themselves can no longer exist in the world. GSL is co-owned by The Mars Volta founder, Omar Rodiguez-Lopez a big influence of GSL’s “no compromise, punk rock” aesthetic. Here are some my favorite tracks from some bands on GSL’s past and present roster:

The Jai-Alai Savant – Akebono

400 Blows – Mortar and Pestle

The Mars Volta – Cut That City

Rhythm of Black Lines – Zama

Jaga Jazzist – Animal Chin

David Gahan – Saw Someting

John Frusciante makes an appearance on David Gahan’s new solo album, Hourglass. A great guitar solo and some interesting moduluar synth work by Mr. Frusciante.

60s French Pop is amazing. From Serge Gainbourg and the Ye-Ye Girls of the 60s like Chantel Goya, France Gall & the woman of my dreams, Francoise Hardy ::swoon:: She had the most sophisticated voice and appeal out of all the 60s Ye-Ye Girls.

Air – Jeanne (feat. Francoise Hardy)


France Gall – Toi Que Je Veux


Das Pop – Underground

Some Beligian love:
Goose – Bring It On
