  1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SrSUzoTAsug&t=11s Found this one the reddit but tis a good one
  2. hangable auto bulb complete. would be cool to hear more drums like this with those mad lush circklon sequencing of synfs. yall mad if you think he isnt still 'innovating' with this music, still nothing sounds like this really.. Copycats will start using this sound palate but he is the one setting the standard stlll. bless, cant wait to hear the rest of the EP, hyped for less of the safe stuff
  3. Agree'd, this album is bloody awesome, the first 3 tracks are as good as his classic stuff imo. I rock out to very few artists but cant help myself with Maus, my gf doesnt like me singing dumpster baby in the car anymore tho. He is one of few artists I love listening to talk honestly about his music and ideas around his approach and philosophy. Cannot believe this was left off the album. I see the represses are hitting stores now, might have to stock up while i can.. Incredibly tragic to hear of the passing of his brother Joe today while on tour, he was great on bass in the vids I saw online of Pitchfork and that. https://www.stereogum.com/2007869/joseph-maus-brother-and-bandmate-of-john-maus-dead-at-30/news/ Rest of the tour cancelled. Tough year for Maus, hope he has a close group of family and friends who will help him through this. His Ama was a little heartbreaking hear him talk about his wife leaving him too. Really sad considering his triumphant return to music.
  4. Been digging the album still, Gulf Gutters, last track on 'Four Pieces' is acting as a lovely companion, keen to hear these '4' pieces from Ferraro, so far very similar to OPN r+7 onwards in sound design, these two are obviously rinsing that ozone or whatever fucking epic vst is. If you've not heard it get on it Saw the vinyl of the single on OPNs insta all made and ready by the looks! Clenching for the new tracks, would be good to get a show in aus, make it happen. Might be the last new OPN lp for a while according to https://www.stereogum.com/featured/oneohtrix-point-never-age-of-myriad-byrne-anohni-twigs-usher/
  5. He did make a record with Fell right? Surely see each others as peers. How you guys feel about Rian Treanor? Imo they all bring something new to the table and they are all unique in their own way and all worth a listen. This GL album is killer, I dont think ive heard anything from Fell that is as dj friendly and funky that is coming from or maybe more made for the dj and club but all ears if you guys have anything to recommend. The sound design on this is crazy cool, gets a bit intense after a while but Im really digging what he and Rian Treanor are doing with these like Additive synthesis methods and club structures. Very fun and damn it sounds good on big systems
  6. Got to the tassie show, was pretty much unreal in the dark as i had come to expect. Sound was unreal in there too. Got to be the ultimate way to experience ae. off chops
  7. Think this comp is getting a vinyl press soon but love the Pendant track and other artists involved. Its a great take ambient music that seems to be coming out of the US. I think DJ Paradice is a Uon project too, the whole album flows really well worth a listen https://bblisss.bandcamp.com/album/bblisss
  8. Its that thought which makes me wonder if OPN could be putting out an LP of this quality every year. Ferraro is fairly prolific but is more involved in the art world and seems to live through a lot of artists residencies and installations where Opn seems to be working a little more independently on projects or with projects that just seem to take time to come out through the nature of them eg films + releasing on (what might as well be) a major label. Would be cool to see him put out more tunes like Ferraro, he has the fan base to have a really successful bandcamp which is the hardest part about releasing a lot of music.. Seems as tho he is going down a different path of producing for others + films and tv work which is also cool, maybe at his age he is largely done with a lot of touring and all that which is a lot easier while younger and less pinned down
  9. few more thoughts after a few listens today Didnt mind the smaller promo build up to this album. I imagine there will be a bit more press coming but the promo on insta, twitter and youtube has been pretty cool for a change and really enjoy the interviews with him as he is just a bit of a nerd. Whether or not all the insta/twitter promo was all planned it doesnt matter cause we almost got a mood board and set of references the LP was being made from which is always cool to see. GoD really leant itself on the blogs and funny websites and back story that they made which I loved but this is a cool one despite being quite different.. The Live shows + work with David Rudnick has been awesome, got to be one of the best looking Warp releases in years and totally suits the album, cant wait for my preorder to arrive with the card, might even have to grab a CD after seeing how good they look. Funny to see a few people are upset they pre-ordered this, not sure what they were hoping for. I wonder if people would be more open to his work if he release more frequenctly, 3ish years between albums is a bit of time by todays standard but guess he does a hell of a lot of collab and commissions work which is great for him but comes out as a bit less content for the average consumers. Already super keen to hear any follow up and outtakes or proper recordings of the livesets.. Hope they are recording them for release. Musically this is a real trip.. Lots of fun and a hell of a lot to get through.. Wonderfully produced, would love to hear the mixes before j Blake came in for the sake of it. I found some of the Goodtime OST to be a little dense and sometimes hard on the ears during the heavy sections but thi new album sounds really nice, looking forward to the vinyl. Its full of classic OPN sounds and signature chords and melodies that I had hoped for, Raycats nails this. The autotuned vocals are great, he seemed to understand they might be divisive, maybe why he split the album up into 2 EPs with the second half being a very distinct follow up to GoD in sound and composition. Its cutting edge, as you expect from Warp, its a great use of modern synths and tech to still bring out this vibe that runs through OPNs music. I think of it as this nostalgia for a technological utopia that is either on the verge of coming to fruition or was promised and kinda collapsed whilst in our fingertips but there is some sort of hope or redemption going on. It dips its toes in the 80s through threads to hypnagoic pop or vaporwave but kind of reduces synth pop back even further to focus on these medieval themes / melodies similar to some John Maus in a way, his new album and the new James Ferraro '4 works' all seem to be touching on similar themes musically and slightly overlap conceptually, maybe a bit less Maus here but all three might be 3 of the best albums so far this year. Anyones thoughts on this vs new Ferraro new album in sound and theme? Would love to hear a interview with the 2 of them talking about music and their approaches to see how they differ.
  10. decided to fuck off and listen to this and worry about today later. Sounding great so far, vocals are very cool, compositions are great, a little more considered and maybe less of these epic virtuoso solos then i expected (so far) but he still pulls out these classic opn synth sounds here and there, you know the great synth freak is still trapped inside this canne soundtrack winning version of Lopatin who is kicking all kinds of goals in the real world and good on him. Toys2 is about to get a rewind, that break with the cut piano/synth is all time. Can see this trend like this and james blakes car single really pushing a different kind of darker pop.. Is that already happening? I dunno. Will be interesting to hear this new kanye, new jblake, death grips and other modern or cutting edge stuff to see where this sits..
  11. ^ cue'd for days on soulseek now lol been rinsing the rayban boiler room in prep and really looking forward to a listen later on tonight. The internet doesnt seem to agree with the album at first but im keen for some songs with vocals, thought that Animals was stand out on GoD but maybe the video of old mate nodding out made it
  12. Yeah im wondering how close you can get to some of those sounds with the digitone and all the p locks, fx, env and lfos. HOping pretty fucking close cause thats what im planning on going for somewhat once i get my hands on some cash for one
  13. Finally got time to listen to NTS 2.. Enjoying this more then 1 but so far i think both are better then Elseq. Seems like they have refined that sound or approach somewhat and its bloody beautiful. I think it might be my favourite material for quite a time. At times it reminds me of some Mark Fell or other contemporary minimal electronic artists (coh, alva noto, Gabor Lazar etc) but AE got a bit of a wacky electronic music influence instead of a academic approach which makes the music ALMOST more accessible initially then some of their more recent output to me, maybe there is often a rhythmic familiarity to it. Rian Treanor (son of mark fell) has some music that could be viewed as slightly similar by that description but sounds totally different in execution and not nearly as out there but still good if you are looking for some similar Max+FMsynths music but he certainly has a foot in dance music still. Anyone have any other recommendations for similar artists to explore that I might have missed? Bring on the next 2 aye
  14. Would be good timing for a new album (while theyre at it a remaster and release some old tunes for us hey fellas) Guessing the AE LP and OPN lp will take up April, May and early June release wise for Warp, i imagine they wouldnt wanna clash with anything similar or anything at all on the label.. Would be so mad if the album is all done and they are just about to start some promo, i think ive had far more patience since TH then i was in waiting ofr TH which was probably my peak boc interest haha, ive had a good few years off after an almost unhealthy obsession and im back to finding their music special again. The last promo for the album was so cool, would love to see something similar but mainly cant wait to hear what concept or story they are looking to tell after TH and its dark vibe. In my mind they are the best modern concept album creators, seriously solid execution, rarely a song out of place within the albums contexts and im so ready for new music..
  15. yeah this is one of the best things ive heard in a long time. Would love this one a 12" or a HQ download so i can play it out.. Hoping we get these sets in HQ once they are all done like the Live releases. what the hell this is cool Some of these songs, like the one at 1.40, sound to me like they might have been properly recorded and not played live. Some certainly could have been but maybe this is part dj set of new material part live set. im a betting man and i reckon this ae show i gon hit the road again. I just hope they come south of the equator
