    happy June 9th yall hi scores all day
  3. Still listening to this all the time, I really really love this album and it fits the mood I've been in lately better than just about anything else. It's beautiful in an emotionally ambiguous way that's really inviting. Sounds so lush on headphones too. Lots of ear candy with sounds popping around exploring the stereo space, but in a way that's subtle and doesn't detract from the softness of the mix.
  4. honestly I used to listen to Oversteps a lot when I was working on code or max patches, sort of felt like it had enough variation to stimulate creative thought without being too jarring and pulling focus. lately I've been listening to Gas when I want to focus on something and need a nice thick wall of sound to block out the noise of my neighbor's TV.

    draft 7.30

    Reniform Puls is so good. One of the best closers. Deeply emotional but in that cool, detached way. The skittering percussion sounds perfect and even when it gets more dense and complex it never overwhelms the mix; the track keeps that sort of open, airy atmosphere throughout. Also nice how it ends a bit like Nuane with a little minimal glitch loop.
  6. i love being fully vaccinated. everything is chill. the veil of constant worry is lifted. I also had no side effects from the shots (pfizer). A+ highly recommend
  7. hell yeah, the early blackalicious stuff is amazing
  8. lol who promotes a release by saying everything similar to it is terrible, that can't be good advertising
  9. th red a continues to be more and more of a standout for me, and I realized part of what makes it feel special is that they so rarely do tracks in 3 or 6 time sigs (the only other one I could think of offhand is the second half of Cipater). It works so well here and it gives the track a weird sort of sea shanty vibe which fits really well with the other aquatic sounding stuff on SIGN (si00, r cazt, etc.. I get lots of oceanic images in my head with this album)
  10. I just started Persona 4 Golden. it's the first game I've played in the series so I'm still getting used to it, but after the first few hours I'm really starting to enjoy it. It's interesting how your characters' friendships and psychological struggles are tied in with the RPG mechanics. And some of the Persona designs are amazing, I'm looking forward to seeing more of them
  11. Soon Over Babaluma is a great album, underrated. It's missing the eccentric brilliance of Damo Suzuki, but the music is still so good. Lost Tapes I feel is kind of hit or miss but worth it for some exceptional tracks like this beautiful long-form version of Vitamin C which provides a nice window into their process (assuming that this was an earlier take with more raw jamming which they edited/refined to produce the single-length Vitamin C)
  12. I've been listening to Lifeforms a lot lately, such a great album to have on in the headphones while doing morning things
  13. Nice! I havent heard that live album, might have to pick it up. I love Can so much, some of the best music ever made. They've always reminded me of Autechre, the way they built tracks by editing down long-form jams. And the way their music feels casual and improvised but still really tight and precise
  14. I've always loved the feel of 94 for some reason. and I like 172 for hyperactive dnb type stuff
  15. I live in a place where it's perpetually hot and sunny, and I swear every time I wake up to an actual cloudy day one of the first things I think is "hey it's cloudy I should listen to Oversteps"
  16. this track, especially from around 5:00-9:00, reminds me so much of Autechre and it just blows my mind that this came out in 1967
  17. I really appreciate how Four Tet released so much defiantly happy music in the hellscape of 2020
  18. iconic. that was what got me into them (and Aphex and Orbital)
  19. I distinctly remember the first time I heard Rpeg, I listened to a 30 second preview of it and thought that melody was one of the coolest things I'd ever heard and immediately bought the CD, then I kept listening to the preview clip of Rpeg over and over while I waited for it to ship. I don't think I've ever fallen for a track that quickly from just a short clip
  20. yeah true it does have a very desolate apocalypse vibe. for me that climactic melody trying to break through is still such a huge emotional release, even though it ends up sort of defeated, dissolving back into the void
