  1. Listened four times now. It's like stepping into a parallel dimension, or several, and I think that's one thing they try to do with their music. There's an interview somewhere where Mike or Marcus is talking about trying to imagine if the standard genres we know developed different ways, branching into things that don't really exist for us. Or like pop songs from a parallel 1970's. I'm thankful that the vaults of modern culture (say 60's on) have such breadth that there can still be 2 hours of music like this, which would totally stupefy identification by any one individual without the aid of Shazam or the like, or even a community of many thousands with whatever technology at their disposal. They probably knew that they would be lifting many of these things out of obscurity, relatively speaking. It's not ALL that different from what some vaporwave artists and curators do. And that's not meant as a slight at all. There are some mixes on youtube I've listened to so many times and had such appreciation for -- that they are masterpieces in my mind, outside and above any particular artists or songs the mix features. This is how I think the Societas mix will age for me, and I quite love it already. One correction I noticed for the tracklist Joyrex posted is the Flayer song is linked to the wrong mix. Should be this one. Just noticed because this was the first song I wanted an ID on. Such a groove.
  2. I will be revisiting this, just based on the (almost) first half so far.
  3. Yes, when that beat faded in 😯
  4. And this one totally does too. Shoegaze BoC.
  5. It sounds good, whatever it is.
  6. Saw an article on Yahoo, of all places, which describes it as a "mysterious two-hour mix". Nothing of whether there's anything new or not. They don't seem like the type to send a greatest hits reel though, so there's that.
  7. As if this wasn't enough, less than a month before we have a completely contradictory tweet.
  8. Mindhunter season 2 in August. That will be a binger for me.
  9. I think Netflix bought it at the last minute after it was already made because the studio realized it wasn't going to get a wide theatrical release. Still tho. Vaguely lite-spoilers ahead - They really should have focused more on the time before he was first caught and not so much on the trials. A lot of the trial stuff exists in real life footage anyway, so it seems kind of pointless. I get that they were trying to show the way that Bundy charmed people, both in his personal life and public/legal persona, but it could have worked much better if it wasn't jumping through the timeline so fast. If you don't have a pre-knowledge of the whole thing, it probably plays like a highlight reel with no coherent narrative. Done well, it could have really pulled the rug under the viewer if it played up the terrible contrast between the acts he committed and the wholesome-ish guy he pretended to be. Part of that would include showing some things that a movie with this kind of cast probably never would. I thought the ending redeemed it a little. And I think Effron and most of the cast did a decent-good job with what they had. But wtf John Malkovich? He didn't even try to do a southern accent. Just John Malkovich playing John Malkovich judge, not at all like the one in the real life trial.
  10. +1, including the second part
  11. The hunt for the death valley Germans
