Thumbs up to Buddha Machine

I've been loving my Fm3 Buddha machine this holiday season. It is nice to be able to deprogram the holiday music by centering myself to the drones and loops of the Buddha machine.

If you haven't heard of it, the machine is a box made by the electronic group FM3. They took 9 loops they use in their music and put them on a little hardware box that looks like an old am radio. The loops will play until the battery wears out and there is a switch to cycle thru them.

The boxes also spawned some remix records last year with artists using the loops or playing along with some of them.

I keep mine at work and it helps me relax when tension rises. Some days I leave it on the whole time.
