01.09.06Music Monday A doc about K Records, home to Beat Happening and several other punk/pop-ish bands based out of Olympia, Wash. I mainly know of them because my favorite Beck album wasmade up there and released through them. The co-founder dude has a very identifiable voice so it was a surprise to hear it singing something other than the few Beck songs that I know it from. Most of the music played though was like a perfect mix between Velvet Underground and the voodoo rhythm label... so I was again impressed by Kier-la's impeccable programming skills. the doc itself though... eh... well maybe they were going for a similarly lo-fi approach just like K Records is known for, but at a certain point I become distracted because I have no clue who the person talking on-screen is or what song that band is playing or even who that band is. Definitely lacking in a few bits for me... but that just makes a good reminder of what to look out for and avoid with my doc so... it's all good.
