Tom Cruise was recently asked, “What’s your favorite album and also is this album your inspiration for denouncing Scientology?”

aji.io – underground peppers + #ajiwave

In the shadowy corners of the internet, a peculiar entity takes root, sprouting from the fiery inspiration of the aji pepper and it’s underappreciated aesthetics. This blog calls curious souls to venture into its depths and uncover the secrets hidden in the underground pepper circles.

You, dear reader, are cordially invited to embark on this spicy expedition at aji.io – a realm where peppers, #spicewave, basil, and face-melting recipes intertwine in a dance of culinary class.

Yet, be forewarned: this website is no ordinary affair. It thrives in the underground, a clandestine haven for those who dare to flirt with the forbidden – perhaps even with those of illegal variety that defy the very boundaries of botanical propriety. So, tread lightly, brave explorer, and let the siren call of https://aji.io lead you into a world of intrigue, spice, and the promise of peppers from the past and future alike.

Geotic – Mend is Amazing

I have been listening to Geotic – Mend for quite a while and it is still one of my favorite albums. Even though it’s extremely minimal, I could listen to it nearly every night and not get sick of it. Fell in love with it in 2013 getting lost in downtown Coral Gables.

Geotic is a side project from Will Wiesenfeld, more widely known for his work as Baths and Post-Foetus. He is supposed to be releasing a new Baths album sometime 2014. The album Mend is very slow, ambient melodies (mostly guitar) painted over cleverly processed distortions.

You can download Geotic – Mend the entire album and many more for free here. Update: First Geocities, now Angelfire? Why do you take all the good sites away internet? Luckily, you can download it here in addition to his new albums. Dope.

Vintage Moog Modular on eBay, Blue Distortion sucks

So, not even one post in 2012. How freaking pathetic is this blog. “Just let it die already!” you’re screaming. Who am I kidding, no one is reading this. I only have time for doing tweets lately (@bluedistortion – follow me bro!). I also spend a lot of time eating cookies.

Life is crazy and cookies are delicious.

Anyhow, I thought this was awesome–there’s been a vintage Moog Modular on eBay for what looks to be over a month now. The best part? It’s only $60,000. So sexy. Worth it to go and check out the pictures. It’s in amazing condition. Imagine all of the people you could impress with this thing (ladies?).

This multi-generational Moog system has the following modules included: 901, 901A, 3-901B, 4-902, 903, 2-904A, 904B, 907A, 4-911, 911A, 921, 951, 960, 961CP, 962CP, 984, 991, custom 994 (3x), 2-CP3A, CP4A, upgraded CP8A.

Update: the vintage Moog Modular is gone from eBay forever! So, in it’s place, here is a vintage E-mu Modular on eBay! One day this will be gone too and you will click and feel empty inside. Link

Tim Reed: A Nonfunctional Teapot

Today we feature Tim Reed who has the electro-acoustic ambient sounds down to a science, quite literally. Tim has a PhD in composition from the University of Florida and currently teaches music theory and composition at Manchester College in Indiana.

The work A Nonfunctional Teapot echos mangled samples of what I assume is teapots and other strange sound recordings based around the theme. These manipulations weave in and out creating a very interesting composition reminiscent of the great John Cage or Karlheinz Stockhausen.

Please download and enjoy. Tim Reed has plenty of other music for your perusal at the following links.

I’m going to go put on some tea.

Subaqueous: Liquescent

Subaqueous – Liquescent

Here is a nice melodic, electronic tune from the Seattle composer Subaqueous. His music is a unique blend of beat science, melodic entrancement, and composition. Liquescent is an aptly named jam: flowing, liquid funk. You can purchase the album off of his Bandcamp site, or, keep up to date of new tunes on his Soundcloud. Enjoy!
