A Certian Ratio returns...


it's hard to believe that it's been 12 years since new ACR material but after listening to the 3 offerings post by their new french label i'd say it's well worth the wait.

listen here

how to work the player...
it took me a minute to figure out how to get the player working. on
the right side next to the album cover there are the 3 songs. when you
click on one of them a player opens in a smaller window. then nothing
happens and it appears that it's endlessly loading. here's what you do.
in the player window, there is a white drop down menu on the right
side. click on the artist right below acr. it will show you a list of
songs by whoever. now go back to that white drop down menu and click
acr and then it will show you the acr songs. then click on one of the acr
tracks and it will start playing.

Beta.Beta (9PM)

beta.beta was formed in the summer of 2007 out of pure coincidence when parixit walked into the teashop that adelin was working at, and asked if she'd like to sing. she'd never been in a band before, and parixit was at that point without a project. 
a pow-wow over ice cream and monster mix later led to the inception of beta.beta, a blend of sexy, wistful, fun, electronic beats and sounds mixed with parixit & adelin's mutual desire for creating music you can escape to. 

Following the release of the Nautilus EP in early 2006, the band retreated to create their debut LP, In Her Gentle Jaws. Set for release in December 2007, In Her Gentle Jaws takes the band's songwriting and arranging to breathtaking new places. From the sonic attack of "Sky Ghosts" to the lullaby calm of "Heavy Eyes", the Depreciation Guild have created a piece of music designed to be heard as a whole - an album filled with highs and lows, saturated in color, and drifting into dream. 
In Her Gentle Jaws was self-produced in New York. It was mixed in Chicago by Joshua Eustis, one-half of renowned experimental electronic group Telefon Tel Aviv. Eustis's resume includes work with artists such as Nine Inch Nails, Tool, Bebel Gilberto, Apparat, Robin Guthrie, and The Album Leaf. The record was then mastered back home in Brooklyn by Bill Racine. Racine assisted producer Dave Fridmann on modern classics from the Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev, and has more recently produced albums for Rogue Wave and Mark Gardner of Ride.

Luxa (11PM)

Formed By Andy Durutti and Kristen Stocks in January of 2008, Luxa has a dim relation to the newer offshoot genres of shoegaze, but enters greater landscapes with a volatile adventurism and a new kind of dynamism in its swirling beauty. raw and tender. complex and simple. consumable and out of reach.
In June Luxa went on sucessful four city mini-tour with Ulrich Schnauss, Auburn Lull and Screen Vinyl Image. They are currently writing songs for their full length debut to be released in the spring of 2009, with a new single appearing in January.
