And Continuing

“Revolver” is a track off of Hooverphonic’s first album, back when they were a quartet and had a different singer. I’m not sure where the sample comes from, but works well in the context of the driving, propulsive song.

Like Saint Etienne, Hooverphonic is a mostly European phenomenon; their last two recordings were not released in the US, which is rather disappointing, since they’re actually very interesting (seriously—their last album was like a Best Of, except that they sat down and re-recorded their mostly electronic studio creations live with a string quartet). It also seems likely that their upcoming album will be, again, a Europe-only release, which means that I’ll have to find, uh, ‘alternative methods of distribution’.

Did I ever mention that American record companies really suck?
