technologically humbled

"Secret Earth was recorded on a 4-track and on a videocassette machine. So, it's using two source recordings and then uploaded to a computer, and then the vocal tracks in. So, it's very very basic..."

what amazes me is not the fact that these guys can pull this off. Not even that i don't care how their stuff is recorded. But most of all it amazes me that, when i hear it, i don't even categorize it as "lo-fi music" of any kind. At the end of the day it's just pure kick-ass music. And, perhaps more importantly, it gets across as such and doesn't get stuck between labels and tags.
