Underground Music Museum is curated by Bryan Baker of GAJOOB Magazine, Cassette Culture Shock Radio, HomemadeMusic.com, Tapegerm and more. My goal is to document, catalog and present a large library of music and related material: thousands of cassette, CDR and other albums independently made and distributed around the world by artists with often singular visions and consuming passions, along with related correspondence and other material. And an exit through the gift shop, just for fun.

Blair Petrie – The Meaning of Love (cassette)

This was distributed by Alex Douglas’ CLEM/CLAS (Contact List of Electronic Music) out of Vancouver, Canada

Blair Petrie can let loose some emotional stuff when he wants too. And we wants to, here. “The Meaning of Love” serves as a sort of cycle around the various states of such. Searching and longing. Even quite powerful at times. And moving. The use of acoustic guitars is especially effective on one cut, as it serves to break up the arrangements (standard synth fare) a bit, which tend toward monotony, although Petrie is very good at carrying the focus of the proceedings with his plaintive, emotional voice.
