Thao & The Get Down Stay Down rocking the Moogs

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down took their killer alt.folk track "We The Common (For Valerie Bolden)" and re-envisioned it for Moog wizardry, while still keeping the banjo magic. Absolutely fantastic. The original is from their latest album "We The Common."

Analog Ultra-Violence

J. Christopher Arrison on how the Moog came to represent a new sound of evil for the movies: "This ingenious re-purposing of classical themes through multi-layered analog synthesizers remains as powerful today as it did over four decades years ago. But like Kubrick’s brutal and graphic imagery, [Wendy] Carlos’ contribution to electronic music was not without controversy." [Cultureramp via Tettix]
