1999 Readers Poll Recount: The Results

E-mail Print PDF

Thanks again to everyone who participated in the Recount of the 1999 Annual Brainwashed Readers Poll.

The original vote which took place at the end of 1999 was clearly less expansive and inclusive, however the new top picks aren't drastically different than the original vote for the most part. Numerous releases which have now charted weren't even on the radar of most readers at the time while other releases have noticeably dropped in popularity due to changing times and changing opinions.

No more polls until the end of 2019.

Scott Walker, 1943-2019

E-mail Print PDF

We are very saddened to learn of the loss of Scott Walker and our hearts go out to his surviving family and friends.

Walker's work in the 1960s, both solo and with the Walker Brothers, has influenced a staggering amount of music that we cover here at brainwashed, while his more experimental work over the last few decades has solidified his role as one of the most important contemporary avant-garde composers.

For an extensive eulogy including a timeline of his career, please read what his label, 4AD has posted.

 

 

Vinyl Thoughts for Record Store Day

E-mail Print PDF

It's time for record store day again and I want to talk about the need for better mastering and cutting and manufacturing on the new vinyl being created today.

So many of the new records I buy, whether reissues or brand new recordings by current bands, are noisy. Surface noise. Yes, sometimes it is caused by the COLOR of the vinyl, because diff colors have diff chemical makeups and there for give differing playback ability (white is actually much closer to plastic and tends to sound the noisiest because it is really not the correct medium to be retaining sound) (and multi colored can have issues due to the diff colors not melting at the same temps and then not taking the information from the stampers as well as they should due to temp differences).

However, a lot of the issues with newly manufactured vinyl come from a lack of knowledge in the mastering and plating phases, and from how quickly records are being turned out. handling them too quickly means mistakes - scratches happening before the albums are sleeved, vinyl not cooling slowly enough and then warping but still being sleeved and sold.....
