  1. I haven't heard of this dude before, but this was def a pleasant surprise. Thanks for the heads up! Do you recommend his other output as well? Seems like a productive guy.
  2. He has a spine injury from a video shoot back in the days. I used to be a massive fan, but I sort of gave him up after Guero. I gave his last album a spin, but nah. What I need is another album like Mutations and Sea Change. Stripped down alt folk/country singer songwriter-Beck. What I don't need is Pharrell produced synthpop-Beck.
  3. Andy Stott, The Caretaker, Swans, Nick Cave, Angel Olsen, Weyes Blood, FKA Twigs, Purple Mountains, Lana Del Rey, Mt Eerie, Big Thief, Fennesz, TOOL, Barker, Plaid, Chemical Brothers, Blanck Mass, Sharon Van Etten, Floating Points, 4TLR, AE_LIVE, Jessica Pratt, A Winged Victory, Underworld, Nivhek, Rafael Anton Irissari. It's been a good year.
  4. Great release. I've enjoyed pretty much everything he has done, and this is really good as always.
  5. Props to the man for remixing a major artist. Great remix, btw! https://www.thefader.com/2019/10/24/st-vincent-slow-disco-eod-remix-premiere
  6. A bit underwhelmed. Very static. Several tracks where nothing happens at all.
  7. First listen. Disappearance/Reappearance is too Treetop Drive 2.

    SWANS

    Saving it for the whole album. Wonder how the "one man" band Swans will sound.
  9. Can't see this mentioned? Released in july. More of the same soundcapes and soft beats. Just what I need. https://dreamcatalogue.bandcamp.com/album/lost-fragments-2
  10. 17 is an unlucky number in Italy. One anagram of the Roman numeral XVII is VIXI, which in Latin translates as "I have lived", with the implication "My life is over" or "I'm dead".
  11. For me, listening to music, has really changed the last decade because of streaming and family life. Ten years ago, one of my favourite activities was opening a beer friday evening and browsing through everyting(!) from Boomkat the last week. Then pirating/buying everything I liked. The more obscure the better. Nowadays I listen to music at work, travelling and hiking. If it's not available on Spotify, it doesn't exist. New Rolando Simmons? Oh, nothing new on streaming since 2017. I miss out a lot of new stuff, but at the same time, I've always had a foot in alternative rock, which is very accessible on streaming platforms, so there is always more than enough. A new thing is listening to more old classic. Five first Neil Young albums? Five highest RYM rated albums from 1981? Also, listening at work, travelling and hiking=more calm and harmonic sounds are appreciated. More ambient, more piano. Or maybe I'm just getting older.

  12. Some of their early stuff is a bit too fluffy and light for me, but I had a short and intense period around Dear Catastrophe Waitress and The Life Pursuit. Haven't really paid any attention to their new synth pop stuff.
