Dropping the needle on some gorgeous vinyl: Shonna Tucker and Eye Candy’s debut, A Tell All.
A lot of people might be wondering what the funny tones at the start of “Here Comes The Night Time II” are on the new Arcade Fire album. Back in the 1980s, Capitol Records released tapes with the designation XDR on them. Supposed to be higher quality. I think my copy of Duran Duran’s Rio was one of these titles.
Anyway, XDR cassettes always started with a brief series of beeps and boops to help detect loss of audio frequencies. That burst of tones is re-created on the new Arcade Fire LP. More info here.
