    Saint Etienne

    CD / Finisterre / Mantra Records

    More Songs from Midnight Matinee

    I have a treat for you, no tricks. Two CDs filled with lofi audio collages put together by WFMU DJ John Schnall. John Schnall has been hosting Midnight Matinee for years. He takes dialog from movies and ties it to music snippets. His technique is rough - dialogs repeat many times in a single song - but if you grab as of the pieces individually (and are familiar with the movie the dialog is from) I guarantee you will enjoy listening.

    Tino's Breaks 6

    CD / Hallowe'en Dub / Tino Corp. Records

    This record has captivated me, and is a wonderful treat to have during Halloween season. Tino is a Cuban drummer who has released 5 other records. I had seen these discs in stores, but never checked them out. If they are as good as this one, it is my loss.

    Advance CD / Mogul Electro
