Album Notes
XJ5000 began their career as a clock making duo in Saxecoburg about seven hundred years ago.
After a brutal assault by a group of Carmelite nuns, each wielding a set of golf clubs, they switched their attention to music.
At the onset of the computer age they ceased to record on wire and began to experiment with pork bellies and clay. Finally they discovered girls and plastic, which resulted in "Roundthing", their third cd. A DVD version is underway.
Xj5000 has found a niche in the independant music world among other over stimulated, disenfranchised and downtrodden members of the post rock & roll generations.
They occasionally manifest as a dog, driving a red convertible.

This sonic bliss is expertly crafted. Superb production, never sterile.
xj5000 is a Woodstock-based group of musicians, who, in their own words, are "trying to create interesting instrumental music to be played in elevators, films, living rooms, etc". Interesting instrumental music is an understatement. If we heard their newest recording in an elevator, we'd never want to get off, but rather dim the lighting, add some pillows, and wrap ourselves in a sonic cocoon unlike any other.
Roundthing is one of the biggest treats your ears (and mind's eye) could have. This sonic bliss is expertly crafted, edited and composed to ride head and shoulders above most electro-ambient fare. It's endlessly morphing and fresh and engaging. The production is superb in its twisted nip/tuck slickness, but it's never sterile thanks to some out-and-out gritty, inventive guitar work.
Track 4, "Business Man Horse," hears a female vocal sample ask, "What is that?" You could listen to this record a few hundred times and answer that query differently on each play. It should be mentioned that there's a wonderful, playful sense of humor in these tracks, which is probably what keeps it in heavy rotation in the cyber-jazz lounges on Mars.
