Yi’s Magic Brick

farfaria:

Greetings Explorers!


How many bricks does it take to build the Great Wall of China?


According to Yi, exactly 99,999 bricks!


But it’s the last brick that is the most important. Without this magic brick, the whole wall might collapse!

Ahh, this was so fun to work on. Makes me wanna get back to children’s stories….

Excellent use of elektroniks gals

This is about as competent a performance from a band of < 10 yrs olds or however old they are here you’ll ever see.

Sorta like a Pynchon novel or Wes Anderson film, you get the impression that the characters and settings in the Phantom Buffalo universe are all related and wonderful.

"Standing Here" is a worthy b-side. You can find it on The Complete Stone Roses comp as well, and probably any one of a dozen Silvertone reissues.

Weirdo album by even Stereolab’s standards… and also really hard to get a hold of a physical copy. Kudos to the Rough Trade outpost in Williamsburg for putting it on order me. Now hurry up and get here!

The genesis of this little guy was actually a riff from (don’t laugh) a Zelda game that got stuck in my head and I turned it into a song, but it wasn’t really working, so I scrapped it. Sometime later my friend Phil sent me this choppy rhythm track, it sounded like waves made of Legos struggling against each other, and I put about 100 echo-y guitars on it and it really did start to sound like lapping water. Lo and behold the Zelda riff sort of naturally appeared again and sort of floats over the top of everything. Seemed fitting for an intro to an imaginary place called Winnogrand.

Your favorite Frenchmen Phoenix make an epic return with “Entertainment.”
