‘Speak With Ghosts’ by Anakronic Electro Orkestra (now out on CD)

One of the late releases digitally in 2010… the fantastic Anakronic Electro Orkestra now has their full-length Speak With Ghosts out on CD.  It comes with three extra connecting snippets (“ghosts”) and is going to make it on my Best of CDs in 2011.  Sure, it made it on the list in 2010, but it’s sooooo good, I’ll break / make my own rules. :)

That1Guy was just here in Eugene.  He’s coming back in May (15th @ WOW Hall).  I didn’t know if was his new album that came out this past Tuesday.  Do I just not pay attention sometimes? Yes.

Go get his new album… CD, download, or both…
