Travelling Without Moving

Top/ The cover of The Magical Sounds of Banco de Gaia (Six Degrees, 1999) evokes the black obelisk-shaped object on the cover and inside sleeve of Presence, the seventh studio album by English rock band Led Zeppelin, created by Hipgnosis. Flashbacks of the Monolith in Stanley Kubrick's film 2001: A Space Odyssey also come to mind. Banco de Gaia is an electronic music band from England, formed by Toby Marks (born 1964, South London) in 1991. The music of Banco de Gaia is best categorized as ambient dub, but Marks works to cross genres, often using Arabic and Middle Eastern samples against a bass heavy reggae, rock, or trance rhythm to produce deeply textured tracks that progress layer upon layer. Bottom/ Leftism (Hard Hands/Columbia) is the debut album by electronica musicians Leftfield, released in 1995. It was shortlisted for the 1995 Mercury Music Prize but lost-out to "Dummy" by Portishead. Leftfield were a duo of electronica artists and record producers, Paul Daley (formerly of the Brand New Heavies) and Neil Barnes, formed in 1989 in London, England. The pair were pioneers in the fields of intelligent dance music and progressive house, being among the first to fuse house music with dub and reggae. They furthermore were among the first electronic musicians to incorporate live guest vocalists, along with The Chemical Brothers and Underworld. Ultimately the duo have been influential on the electronic genre as a whole, with The Crystal Method's Scott Kirkland referring to them in 2005 as "The best electronic band, period!".

Let X=X

Bottom/ "O Superman (For Massenet)" is a 1981 song by experimental performance artist and musician Laurie Anderson. "O Superman," a half-sung, half-spoken, almost minimalist piece unexpectedly rose to #2 on the UK Singles Charts in 1981. Prior to the success of this song, Anderson was little known outside the art world. Top/ Big Science is the 1982 debut album by Laurie Anderson and the first of a 7-album deal she signed with Warner Bros. Records. Best known for the 8-minute epic "O Superman", the album is minimalist and monochrome in sound, and like a great deal of Anderson's work is based largely on spoken word. It is a selection of highlights from her eight-hour production, United States Live, originally a performance piece, in which music was only one element. After Big Science, music played a larger role in Anderson's work. Laurie Anderson (born Laura Phillips Anderson, on June 5, 1947, in Glen Ellyn, Illinois) is an American avant-garde artist and musician who plays violin and keyboards and sings in a variety of experimental music and art rock styles. Initially trained as a sculptor, Anderson did her first performance-art piece in the late 1960s. Over the years she has also performed on recordings by other musicians such as Peter Gabriel, Lou Reed, and Jean Michel Jarre. She also contributed lyrics to the Philip Glass album Songs for Liquid Days, portrayed Mary Todd Lincoln (wife of Abraham Lincoln) for a recording of the CIVIL warS: a tree is best measured when it is down by Philip Glass and Robert Wilson, and also contributed a spoken-word piece to a tribute album in honor of John Cage. Anderson was awarded the 2007 Gish Prize for her "outstanding contribution to the beauty of the world and to humankind’s enjoyment and understanding of life."

I'm So Laid Back, I'm Laid Out

Top/ Deceptive Bends (Mercury) was released in 1977 by rock band 10cc and featured distinctive cover art created by the Hipgnosis team. Lush, catchy pop songs abound. 10cc's biggest success came with the dreamy "I'm Not in Love", from the album The Original Soundtrack, which also included the jaunty single "Life Is A Minestrone". Bottom/ New Traditionalists (Warner Bros) is the fourth studio album by the New Wave rock band Devo, released in 1981. It features the minor hits "Through Being Cool" and "Beautiful World". The sound continued in the vein of the previous album Freedom of Choice, with synthesizers moved to the forefront and guitars more subdued. In addition, the lyrics are frequently dark and vitriolic. With the success of "Whip It" and its associated album Freedom of Choice, Devo attracted a new, more pop-oriented audience that was less interested in Devo's artistic theories and intelligent lyrics. In response, New Traditionalists was aimed to be a much darker, deeper and serious album. The lead-off track, "Through Being Cool," is a direct attack at Johnny-Come-Lately fans who didn't understand Devo's message. As with every Devo album and tour, the band developed a new look for the album, eschewing the Energy Dome headgear, and replacing it with the plastic "New Traditionalist Pomp," modeled after John F. Kennedy's famous hairstyle.

Being Bad Feels Pretty Good

Bottom/ You Have No Idea What You're Getting Yourself Into (Virgin, 2008) is the debut album from British electro-rock band Does It Offend You, Yeah? from Reading, Berkshire. Does It Offend You, Yeah? has been compared to acts like Daft Punk, Justice and Digitalism. However, NME has also compared them to bands like Muse and American dance-punk band !!! (pronounced as chk chk chk, to simulate mouth-clicking sounds) due to their heavier, more 'live' sound. The group is known for their raucous live shows, which often end in stage diving and broken instruments. Middle/ Chromeo is an electrofunk duo based in Montreal and New York City. The two have been best friends since childhood and they describe themselves as the only successful Arab/Jewish collaboration since the beginning of time. Fancy Footwork (Turbo/V2, 2007) is the second album by the Canadian Electronic / Dance Pop group. Top/ The Death Proof OST (Maverick/Warner Bros., 2007) is the soundtrack to Death Proof, Quentin Tarantino's segment of Grindhouse. It includes trademark audio snippets from various scenes in the film and the tracks "Jeepster" by T. Rex, "Down In Mexico" by The Coasters and
Chick Habit" by April March. Quentin Tarantino rose to fame in the early 1990s as an independent filmmaker whose films used nonlinear storylines and aestheticization of violence. His films include Reservoir Dogs (1992), Pulp Fiction (1994), Jackie Brown (1997) and Kill Bill (Vol. 1 2003, Vol. 2 2004). Tarantino often makes references to and features music from cult movies and television.
