ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Cool Downtempo as heard on Sex and the City, Malcolm in the Middle, and Kitchen Confidential!

Real Cool Capers is a fresh electronica endeavor that originated from a string of after-hours jams at a Brooklyn pawn shop.

Also: check out Vunkturi!

The project was written and produced by Scot Cortese (see also Vunkturi), a musician who, a few years back, was working a couple nights a week at a pawnshop in Brooklyn's Greenpoint neighborhood. On occasion, friends would stop by the shop at closing time and the crew would mess around with the various instruments and gear that sat around the cluttered room. Eventually, Scot assembled a bare-bones analog/digital recording setup and began taping the sessions and splicing sounds together.

The players made use of nearly every instrument in the pawn shop, from 80s sound modules and drum machines, to dusty electric pianos and comical keyboards, to vintage jazz guitars and upright bass. The result is a flavorful mix of old and new sounds with a modern lounge groove.

Initially, Real Cool Capers was passed around as "Industry Only". This re-mastered version (NYC's Westside Sound) is the first commercial release.

In addition to having aired on Sex and the City (#107) and Malcolm in the Middle (#521), and the Kitchen Confidential pilot episode, Television Robbers can also be found on the Shanghai Lounge II compilation.

Darren Kirby

Very fun album
Bought this based on the sample clips alone. I love this kind of music! Very fun, funky, and conducive to good times. Music ranges from almost cheesy casio-keyboard demo type sound (Love In Tokyo) to sparse, slow as molasses downtempo (The Lurg) to full on spy/car chase music (The Numb Gumshoe, Follow that Cutlass). Recommended!

KIM PURNELL

VERY FUN & GROOVY
Very fun & groovy. Wonderful background to a very cool evening. Can imagine commiting robbery to this music.

Chris D

chill music that loves you
interesting, never a downer, always nice to listen to. solid beats and grooves, and some killer bass lines.

Mark

A soundtrack to life
This disk is like a soundtrack, but a really good one. If you consider yourself, hip, groovy and/or cool, this may just be the soundtrack to your life. If you aren't, then this would be the soundtrack to someone else's groovy, cool, hip life, of which you may forever pine for, but never be a part of. Play this disk and you may have a chance...

Real cool says it all
Somebody stole my TV but it's ok cause my eyes smelled from watching to many un reality shows, allthough the robbers left me with a great funktitious sountrack for my underground groove podular which is presently strapped to my brainpan keeping me stimulated in pleasent vibes,thank you.
