    Born in 1978, Jens Berents Christiansen is the man behind Rumpistol. He likes to work in the crossfield between melody based pop music and experimental sounds, but always maintains his characteristic warm sound. With great influences from dub he delivers an interesting take on electronica, click-hop and downbeat. Rumpistol’s self-titled debut album was released in 2003 on Rump Recordings, and he has played many concerts in Denmark and abroad since then. Festivals like Fusion, Norberg, Ekko, ADE, and Public Service should be mentioned as well as different concerts at as different places as Mexico and the Baltic countries. Furthermore, he has done remixes and appeared on a split-EP released by the small Danish label, Auditory Designs, as well as on different compilations. As a musician, Jens Berents Christiansen has a background in the band Magtværk, where he played guitar, synths, and sang, but since he left the band in the year 2000, he has been concentrating on the Rumpistol project.

    基本上每过一段时间都会氛一阵儿,电一阵儿...算是一个调整期
    其实也蛮奇怪的,这些冷冰冰的东西有啥好听的...也许只是一串串音符在不断地触动些甚么,难以描绘...
    以前说过一大串相对的词来形容喜欢电音的人,现在已经想不起来了...嗯那时很会说,现在很撮...
    从Slsk上拖下来也有几周了,一直没什么机会传...国庆去乡下时候听得津津有味,非常不错的一张作品...
    继续犯懒,介绍跟Review看英文的吧,提高提高英语水平= =...

    好吧,我承认在此之前我对日本的电音算是属于一无所知,基本也就停留在LiSound同学喜欢的那一类= =...
    时而安静,时而灵动,时而又跳跃...Tickles在这些形容词中不断徘徊着...
    不算生硬,更不算枯燥,小日本的电音...呃,好像很不搭调的样子...And谁再推荐些日本电音给我听听,Orz...

    The sounds of Goddamn Electric Bill were never meant to leave Jason Torbert’s bedroom. But the one-man band, a propulsive blend of ambient electronic and post-rock music, made its way out to the world anyway.

    In its short lifetime, Goddamn Electric Bill has already been nominated for a San Diego Music Award, created a stir in the MySpace musical community, released a debut full-length called Swallowed by the Machines on 99X/10 Records (run by former Cure keysman Roger O’Donnell) and been featured in San Diego CityBEAT and Music Matters Magazine. But Torbert isn’t new to the musical arena.

    Torbert’s suburban childhood was spent learning violin and trombone before he took off for University of Oregon, where he studied ethnomusicology. It was at University of Oregon that Torbert began his seven-year stint as the bassist for a popular punk outfit called Cigar. The band eventually signed to a label run by Pennywise guitarist Fletcher Dragge and toured internationally before calling it quits. He tried his luck at a few other projects, including one band that recorded with At The Drive-In/Sparta drummer Tony Hajjar and signed to Sparta frontman Jim Ward’s label, Restart Records, but Torbert quickly figured out that the band life wasn’t for him.

    It was the sounds Torbert made on his own – from bass, guitar, keys, Rhodes, sitar, mbira, percussion and bagpipes – that turned into Goddamn Electric Bill. And it is those sounds that Slug Magazine called “jaw-dropping cinematic tracks” and Rip It Up Magazine called “uplifting in both mood and subtlety.” And it is those sounds that continue to cause a stir.

    之前内张大怪兽头的专辑封面还记忆忧新, 一晃眼Goddamn Electric Bill这个熟悉的名字又一次出现在新砖上市的名单里...
    1o月都快2o号了,气温依旧维持在26,7度,丝毫没有下降的意思...呃...或许真的不会有2o13年吧= =...
    专辑如封面,介绍很长,TSB的Review也很长= =...蛮舒服的Electro(acoustic),时不时呈现Ambient/Post-Rock的架构...
    吹吹海风吧,在这暖暖的秋天...

    Schengen consists of Nick, Ian, and “non-playing Helen.” Nick, who also records as “Jelly Antler” and “Cep,” was previously a member of Bovine Slug; while Ian, also known as “Markinch vs the Clouds,” was formerly associated with Blind Panic and Mule. What they describe as “a shared love of electronica, reverb, analogue synths” is manifested in the complex and varied electronic music to be found on their initial 2006 Make Mine Music album The Beijing of Our Career, subsequent EP’s ep (MMM), EP+ (an expanded version of ep) and Nyplex ep, and 2008’s Ce Gil album (Distant Music).
