Out Of Towner

CD (Item 968754) Unique (Germany), 2005 — Condition: Used
$6.99 ...

CD

A deeply complicated set of grooves from Ben Human – one that comes across like a classic soundtrack, souped up with some very tasty contemporary touches! There's a vibe here that seems to run from mid 60s French and Italian work to early 80s electronics – all served up with the ear for an older style that Ben first brought to his work in Corduroy – but inflected with some 21st century beats and programs. The sound is never easily kitschy, but extremely evocative – and tracks are peppered with some spoken dialogue on the intro, further pushing the cinematic feel of the set! Titles include "Angry Computer", "The Out Of Towner", "Take Me To Las Vegas", "In Control", "Daddy's Back", "The Right Hand Of Doom", "The Werewolf Break", "Downtown Brown", and"Caipiranha".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
