  1. So Anne-James Chaton is still rinsing this number and letter thing eh? Bizarre. I love his credit card number track on Unitxt and Uni Acronym is brilliant but I don't understand how he's not sick of this by now.
  2. You know that Italy and Greece are entirely different countries right?
  3. Listen to the Latoma EP, if you don't love it then go fuck yourself I don't know what to tell you
  4. Tobin and Blanck Mass sitting in a tree. W.R.I.T.I.N.G (absolute bollocks) Track sounds pretty lush. Another Amon Tobin album of nice aimless sounds that you listen to maybe twice incoming!
  5. Khraungbin are quite nice. Good as background music but not arresting enough to want to listen to a full album on headphones for me, Clive. Needs more amen breaks.
  6. I did use my ears, once the album had finished I needed recovery time from the ear fatigue. I can't think of an album I've revisited more and not been able to understand what everybody was so fussed about. So samey and uninteresting aside from a couple of tracks. Each to their own I know. Blah blah.
  7. Hi david 1806 on behalf of the rest of WATMM I would like to welcome you to the foremost home of IDM conversation and gentle banter. I'm pleased to say we have recently been rated one of the best and most friendly communities on the internet and I'm sure my fellow IDM (and other extreme musics of course :P) enthusiasts will welcome you here with open arms. Please take the time to peruse the various subforums we have. EKT is a particular favourite on this board and I highly recommend checking out any work posted by The Bro, he's possibly our most profilic producer. I myself like to listen to Autechre. If you're not familiar with them, they're kind of a hip-hop/music concrete hybrid. Aphex Twin made one good song called Come to Daddy but I don't think he has made much since. But anyway, I'm probably babbling on a bit too much now! Make yourself comfortable and do of course read the rules.

    Brexit :(

    LOL alright, chill out sweetheart
  9. Yeah I figure but I don't think he receives an avalanche of messages like that either.
  10. Very much enjoyed the Rogan podcast with Sanders. Everything he says seems to make sense, doesn't it? I can't think of a more credible and human candidate right now. Smart move to go on Rogan too, he's got a fair few right leaning listeners I hope will be given pause for thought as a result. Please die, Trump.
  11. One message from somebody saying they didn't like the board? I mean law of averages suggests some people won't like any given thing. I don't understand why everything has to try and appeal to everybody all of the time, Joyrex. You have a pretty unique community here that for the most part understands that there is an absurd and sometimes mean tone to discourse here. It's been like that since day dot. Except these days it's a little more punctuated by people having actual beef on here, lol. Did you say to the guy "Sorry it's probably just not for you." Because if you were making excuses for the community I think you probably went about it wrong.
  12. I know what you mean. The way it's marketed is so unlike how I hear it. That music video above is such a poor representation of the music IMO, I find the music quite silly and over the top and fun (though admittedly the tracks from the new album sound a bit pants) but the video is going more a "disturbing" style like it's supposed to make you uncomfortable. It doesn't make me uncomfortable at all, it just smacks of somebody taking themselves a bit too seriously. From now on I'm referring to this album as Blanck Mass - A Level Student
  13. Americans of WATMM. Has Trump done anything since being in power that you would consider good, or for the better? Honestly.
  14. As an ignorant outsider I just can't see any reality where Trump doesn't get reelected. Maybe it's because I watched The Great Hack recently and it made me really cynical about elections but from here I can't see a credible opposition candidate. How's it feel over the pond? Does it seem realistic that Trump will get ousted? I feel like his rise and presidency has brought together so many toxic elements of American society (and abroad) that the stink of his reign won't be gone for a good while after he goes anyway.

    My one and only criticism of The Return is that fucking mockney accent bell. It's hilarious that he has such a pivotal moment in it. I know he got he role based off of him doing a Youtube video of different accents fairly well, but that accent he has in the show is so cringe inducing. I watched the episode where he tells the story about how he got the glove to James Hurley at the weekend and couldn't stop laughing at the ridiculousness of it. Why did Lynch ask him to speak like that? It's arguably the most surreal thing David Lynch has ever done.
  16. What do you guys mean by pretentious? This description is the least pretentious thing I've ever read: “In this post-industrial, post-enlightenment religion of ourselves, we have manifested a serpent of consumerism which now coils back upon us. It seduces us with our own bait as we betray the better instincts of our nature and the future of our own world. We throw ourselves out of our own garden. We poison ourselves to the edges of an endless sleep. Animated Violence Mild was written throughout 2018, at Blanck Mass’ studio outside of Edinburgh. These eight tracks are the diary of a year of work steeped in honing craft, self-discovery, and grief - the latter of which reared its head at the final hurdle of producing this record and created a whole separate narrative: grief, both for what I have lost personally, but also in a global sense, for what we as a species have lost and handed over to our blood-sucking counterpart, consumerism, only to be ravaged by it. I believe that many of us have willfully allowed our survival instinct to become engulfed by the snake we birthed. Animated — brought to life by humankind. Violent — insurmountable and wild beyond our control. Mild — delicious. This is perhaps the most concise body of work I have written to date. Having worked extensively throughout my musical life with dramatics, narrative, and ‘melody against all odds’, these tracks are the most direct and honest yet. The level of articulation in these tracks surpasses anything I have utilized before.”
  17. I love Blanck Mass but this picture is hilariously wank
  18. I think if you're convinced the world is about to end then you should get off of the internet for a while and avoid keeping up with 24 hour news. I think that in the western world the recent surge of right wing personalities has grown a little (aided by the likes of online influencers) but I don't think it will last as long as you think. To me it feels more like a death rattle of that old regressive way of thinking, one last attempt to hold on. Constantly reading the miserable nonsense you get online is going to taint how you think day to day. It's better to let go IMO. I mean, the world isn't going to end, humanity will end before the world does. I'm deeply concerned about the climate and do as much as I can to be green, but when I think about deforestation in other countries and just China on it's own I have to laugh bitterly and just not worry about it. I'm optimistic deep down though. I think humanity will take a few licks and a good bit of the human populace will have to die before we collectively get our shit together. Regressive mentalities will need to die out but that process is happening currently. The climate thing will be the near miss, but we have smart people working on clever ideas. Right now we don't have an easy solution but human ingenuity has surprised throughout history. Just think how quickly technology has come together since the industrial revolution! If you're seriously feeling apocalyptic my genuine advice is to get off of social media, away from the influencers. Take more time away from the internet and get away from 24 hour news. Spend more time outside and with your friends or family. Think of the world in terms of your communities. Everything seems terrible because we're mostly only interested in bad news and we're fed it constantly. Back when the news was on one or two times a day you'd be like "ah yeah that sounds bad", but then your reality would kick back in and you'd go about your life. We can't go back to that world, sadly. But you can have a bit of discipline and stop poisoning your brain. We'll be alright.
  19. What the fuck!? How!? That's so depressing. Rip
  20. It's looked like that for ages hasn't it? Maybe I'm just imagining that to be the typs Tool look.
