Somewhere between drum and bass, ambient, and trip-hop lie Washington DC’s Thievery Corporation. Their eclectic release, The Mirror Conspiracy, is not your average electronica CD. Full of smooth grooves, down-tempo beats, deep bass and wistful vocals, they perform lounge music for the electronic generation. It is as much an experiment as it is a celebration of music. The Thievery Corporation’s unique sound is comprised of a wide variety of musical styles that have been fusedRead More
