Operation Manatee #97: My Grammy’s Better Than Your Grammy!

Yeah, so the Grammys happened. Whatever. I paid as much attention as I ever have (by being totally oblivious to the fact that they were even on). The only “news” I was privileged enough to learn when I opened the Twit machine or Sludgebox was that Kayne was talking smack about my boy Beck.

Surely you’ve all heard this somehow interesting trivial whogivesadamn, so there’s no way I’m putting in the effort to track down links to back up what I’m saying. Use the google machine, forchristsake!

Silly as this nonsense was, it got me thinking: fuck any of you who worked hard and were rewarded with popularity! Instead of indulge in this junk, I only see fit to indulge myself, instead.

Tonight, from 11:00 to midnight, tune in for Operation Manatee’s Wish This Were A Grammy! Or something. Whatever. Cory’s still not here, so I’m winging it.

Operation Manatee #96: The Richard D. James Special

Some of you may know that Richard D. James has been releasing new music for the first time in a long time. Under his main monicker, Aphex Twin, he released his first album in 13 years, the highly anticipated Syro, in September, 2014. Just 4 months later, with little announcement, he released the curious (but super neat, in my opinion) Computer-Controlled Acoustic Instruments pt 2 EP, a half-hour run time collection of mostly prepared piano and drums, likely programmed by him and played by custom-made robots, if we’re to believe what we’ve read in recent interviews.

Very shortly after the EP’s release, a SoundCloud account appeared to be uploading old, unreleased RDJ material under the usernames, “user487363530″, ” “user4873635301″, and finally, ” “user48736353001”, where the track count totalled 110, and they were all made available for free download.

Lucky for you, I’m a fan, and Cory’s gone.

Tune in tonight from 11:00 to midnight for  the RDJ/Aphex Twin/AFX/user48736353001/etc. Special!
