Travis Ritter is fucking.
Aug 13 Travis Ritter commented on Ten Music-Video Fashion Hits of the 1980s.
I would like to add Visage 'Fade To Grey', which epitomizes the decadence of 80s New Romanticism.
Aug 8 Travis Ritter commented on Y'all Are Familiar with Bubble Puppy, Right?.
I can't believe Dave hadn't heard this record before. An underappreciated Texas paisley-psych record, overshadowed by labelmates 13th Floor Elevators and The Golden Dawn.

Manitoba/Caribou sampled 'Gathering of Promises' on the song "Skunks"

Oh man, this is good. Thanks Nipper.

Feb 12 Travis Ritter commented on "Feel the Trees Breathing": Laraaji and Iasos' New Age Summit Meeting.

Feb 10 Travis Ritter commented on Cleveland Radio Station Vs. "Noise Wall".
Makes me yearn for the days when I DJed at Rice University's KTRU Radio in Houston and they not only encouraged us to play stuff outside of the box, but demanded it. Why yes, I will play Naked City at 11am on a Tuesday morning, and follow it up with local thrashers Insect Warfare. I didn't go so far to play any long, drawn-out John Wiese track, but fuck it, Rusted Shut was practically easy listening around KTRU.

One of my favorite columns on LineOut! Keep up the good work, Jeffery!
Jan 15 Travis Ritter commented on Is the Burgerama III Music Fest Worth a Trip to California?.
