World’s first environmentally friendly record

pressing1Using the latest technological advances in biodegradable films and plastics, Invisible Agent Records, in association with a undisclosed pressing plant, are to release the world’s first biodegradable record.

In a recent interview Warren Daly stated: “We have worked very hard on this idea for many years. We started with a 7″ prototype but have recently developed technology to allow us to extend the process to a 10″ disc.”

He went on to say that “During times of economic and environmental uncertainty somebody has to take bold steps to address several issues. We know that vinyl sales are down and vinyl production costs are up. Punters just don’t have the money, they have to buy food, they have to survive.”

Describing further technological advances he said, “A few months back we were approached by a Belgian company wishing to investigate merging the biodegradable plastics technology with a new form of confectionery process. This enabled us to produce a record that could play on any standard deck, but could at a later stage be consumed.”

He continued saying, “You will be able to play the record without audio degradation for well over 100 plays. When you’re finished, or if you don’t like the release anymore, you can just eat the record. Right now we have just one flavour, chocolate, but are working closely with the Belgians and should be launching a wide range of fascinating flavours on our next release.”

This exciting development could lead to further parallel projects such as complementing flavoured rice paper record sleeves and stickers.

Warren was unable to comment on the nutritional value of each record, but stated that clear labelling of the nutritional information would be printed on the record sleeve in line with European Communities Labelling, Presentation and Advertising of Foodstuffs Regulations 2002.

I AM CORRUGATED – Altsounds.com Review

IS888Dance music seems to be in flux these days. Yes, dance music is probably as popular as ever, but it has never really stationed itself in the mainstream. The truly innovative dance music remains underground, and perhaps always will. Dance albums seem to becoming a rare thing these days. With the rise of the digital realm, EP’s seem the way of the future. Little nuggets of creativity hat can be bought easily and cheaply. Surprising then, that a mainly underground producer from Ireland had released a long player that was starting to receive rave reviews from some dance music heavyweights. It did dawn on me that perhaps a self styled marketing wheel was in full flow….surely the album couldn’t live up to the hype?

Simply put, it does. I am sure long nights, days and months were put into its creation, and the results show it. Definitely not a mainstream club album, this is one for the long drive up north, the way back home from the latest head cleansing gig, or even in your house as you stoke up the fire. It may not be the album that gets the party crawling on the ceiling, but it is definitely the one that can get the blood running a little smoother, or the head cooled gently, on the long road home to sobriety.

The stand out track, Careful What you Wish For, currently offered free from www.seedyr.com, is a perfectly constructed piece of music. From the humorous, yet socially adept intro, to the way in which the track floats along, nestled on a bed of crisply produced strings and deep, driving percussive elements.
Don’t be fooled into thinking this album is a one hit wonder, it’s not. You may feel that the strings are perhaps too dominant throughout the album, but on listening, it becomes obvious that this is what Edwin wanted. This album is a departure from his more Electro orientated first album, We Are Electronix, and moves into the realm of true, deep, emotional House music. It is an album that combines the organic with the synthetic in a way that is not commercial, un-classy or clustered. It is a testament to the creativity which lurks in Ireland at the moment and a testament to the rising star that is Corrugated Tunnel.

Stuck in the middle?

logo6 Online Music Stores: While some users are split between pay per track versus subscription services, there is a third option which I am not sure what to make of.

More shops like LaLa are popping up.  Their approach is “Get the web song (unlimited online plays) for 10 cents, or the MP3 download for 79 cents more”. Maybe because I am in a Wi-fi black hole everywhere I go:-) even so, why should I pay 10 cents to listen to a track?  I fail to see how a service like this exists – especially since there are thousands of free full length tracks available to play on LastFM and the likes of MySpace. A high percentage of these are also available for free download. Invisible Agent have a number of Free Tracks and EPs available on LastFM – so head over there now.

What baffles me even more, certain large online music stores do not offer full, DRM-free downloads. I was under the impression that DRM died a death years ago… Maybe I need to buy a Zune and live in a Wifi zone! All comments are welcome, let us know if you use a subscription service or not…
