I saw some of the people in here listen to techno... so theres this techno song from the 90s maybe early 2000s that I have been dying to find. It has a child or a girl sampled saying "i want to be a good christian" ... does anyone know this?

Playing Monopoly Gamer (CE) and blasting The Legend of Blind Joe Death by John Fahey. Beautiful, super precise slide guitar work by a git box master.

The highlights of the second half of December — crazy month, as I managed to buy 29 records in 30 days (if shops were open tomorrow I would probably buy a couple more to make it 31). This month has been all about jazz and brazilian, japanese and italian psychedelia. A few of these records demanded a price slightly higher than the usual I am willing to pay, but overal they are all excellent albums. Curiously enough, in 2017 I bought the exact same amount of records as I did in 2016 — never happened before. If anybody's curious:

top row:
Peter Green - The End of the Game ('70, psychedelic blues jam from founding member of Fleetwood Mac)
Cold Sun - Dark Shadows ('70, recently unearthed psych mastodon by Texas band)
Os Brazões - Os Brazões ('69, psych garage from Gal Costa's early backing band)
McCoy Tyner - Atlantis ('75, superb jazz, almost feels like you're being swept by the waves of Atlantis)

centre row:
Lula Côrtes - Rosa de Sangue ('80, psychedelic folk from northern Brazil)
Lula Côrtes e Zé Ramalho - Paêbirú ('75 cornestone record for brazilian psychedelia)
Lenine - Na Pressão ('99 excellent brazilian modern singer/songwriter)
Milton Nascimento & Lô Borges - Clube da Esquina ('72 some consider it the brazilian Sgt. Pepper)

bottom row:
Far East Family Band - Nipponjin ('75 heavy japanese psych/space rock)
Far East Family Band - Tenkujin ('77 their last record, still spacey but much more prog oriented)
Masahiko Satoh - Amalgamation ('71 heavily improvised free music, cross between jazz, psych and tribal)
J. A. Seazer - 邪宗門 (Jashumon) ('72 brain melting japanese psych once used as soundtrack to Nō theatre performances)

For the 5th time this year I can say that I'm listening to King Gizzard's new album. They did it, they f****ng did it, five albums in one year. The absolute madmen. And to top if it off it's actually not that bad either.

Just revisited Electriclarryland by Butthole Surfers for the first time since the late 90s. I like it tonight more than I did then. It will remain in my rotation for a while.

@spizzamarozzi - Another interesting haul. I’m curious if you’re able to buy such niche (and I assume possibly rare) genres locally or if you shop online? Probably both I imagine. More to add to my list to investigate.

@skywake - That’s incredible output. If I were to listen to just one King Gizzard album from this year, which would you recommend?

@bimmy-lee
Flying Microtonal Banana is probably the best from this year with Polygondwanaland a close second. Though with five albums released one one year it's kinda hard to get a handle on where they all rank. Usually you get a chance to let the previous album from an artist settle in your mind before being able to compare!

edit:
BTW if you ask Google Home what albums King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard has released this year it'll list three before saying "and others".

@bimmy-lee during the year I shop both locally and on ebay, but these were all bought locally. I never get packages sent in December as the risk of them getting stolen, damaged or lost is very high.
I'm lucky enough to live near a record shop which we (the regular customers) have made into the headquarters of our little community of music friends — it's a bit like in the movie High Fidelty.

Thing is, when you shop for records online you become a bit like a race horse — since you can find anything you want, you become unaware of your surroundings. In real record shops you might not find exactly what you're looking for, but if you take the time to look through the shelves you may find other stuff that you wouldn't have bought online.

One example from my haul is McCoy Tyner's Atlantis, an album which none of us had heard about before. I found it in the jazz section and the cover art got me interested, so I decided to put it on the shop's Hi-Fi to give it a try. We were all mesmerized by how great it sounded and how the piano and the drums really convey the idea of being swept by the waves that brought down Atlantis. Needless to say, after the first track ended, everyone in the shop wanted a copy!

Ebay I use for the more obvious/commercial stuff, since the 2nd hand market on the internet is enormous. If I wanted to get a Neil Young album, or a Joni Mitchell album for cheap, I would probably look on ebay. I never bought anything on Discogs but I think I might place a couple of orders next week, but that's just for really obscure and foreign stuff that I've been wanting for centuries and has never been printed in Europe.

@spizzamarozzi - I buy in much the same way, though my purchases and outings have slowed a bit since my daughter was born three years ago. I really only buy online for something specific and like to leave the bulk of my purchases up to fate. On a whim, I’ve plucked albums off racks for as little as 50 cents with no prior knowledge of the band that have become classics in my home.

Before I became a dad, I had a little circuit of record stores, junk shops, swap meets and antique stores I would run every Saturday looking for things I collect (with pub stops in between). I still get out, but only about once a month, and I never make it to all my old stops in a single afternoon any more. I envy the community of music lovers you have. It’s really great to listen with others and share thoughts. I have friends on both coasts who send me albums and vice versa, and we call or write each other about them, but nothing beats listening together in person.

@skywake - I’ll give one or both of them a spin tonight. I checked, and I can definitely stream Flying Microtonal Banana. I’ve always meant to listen up on them more than I have. I grew up in a small town with a little, family owned restaurant known for their fried chicken gizzards, so I really should add more King Gizzard to my gizzard experience.

@aesc - I haven’t had a lot of time today to follow up, but I was interested in that trio of bands when I read your post this morning because I’m unfamiliar. I briefly checked out Vildhjarta. I had them on YT in the background while I was working on a few things, and I was surprised when I finally watched a video and saw that it’s actually two lead singers. Not sure I can think of a band that uses two lead singers whose only function is vocals. Pretty interesting.

So my first order through discogs had just arrived. A huge loot of brain melting japanese psychedelia from the '70s which never even got distributed here. I email the seller telling him that everything looks immaculate. And then the seller says "btw those belonged to a DJ who passed away last year".
FFS. That is a first for me.
I've never owned anything that came from the collection of somebody who passed away. Feels kinda weird. But this guy must have been a first rate DJ to have this kind of stuff in his collection. And it's great that these records went to somebody else (me) who's going to play them and love them just like the previous owner. I will try my best not to die though.

Been listening to The Sword and VHS or Beta this morning

The Sword

and

VHS or Beta

Anyone who hasn't heard VHS or Beta I highly recommend them. I saw them as an opener for Electric Six once and was hooked.

@bimmy-lee You ever check out Immortal? IMO they are the god kings of black metal.

Wife was in Houston this weekend so I had to tell her to listen to some good Houston rap. Although she didn't know what Texas Tea was lol. She later asked her cousin who is a pharmacy tech in Port Arthur and found out.

@RancidVomit86 - Hey man, sorry, been away from the site for the last week or so. Yeah, I’ve definitely checked them out. I’ve listened to probably three or four albums now, and I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve heard. I haven’t read up on them yet, so I don’t know much about them other than the music. I thought that RL Grime video you posted was cool. I had heard of him, but never heard his music.

@spizzamarozzi - Probably a third of my vinyl collection has come directly from collections of the dearly departed. Mainly from auctions and estate sales, a box or two at a time. One time I did buy several hundred albums at one particularly good auction, but I ended up selling or giving away at least half of them. I think it’s kind of fun to keep them spinning and carry on the legacy.
