  1. This might be my favorite thing he’s done. Great stuff. I could use a whole album like this.
  2. 2020 was an amazing year for music. There weren't as many records that really grabbed me this year but these would be my picks for this 2021: * Suryummy - Polynators * LF58 - Live at Brancaleone * Intelligent Life - Lost in Translation * SEEKERSINTERNATIONAL - Presents Ragga Preservation Society * Arian Shafiee - Pastorale * Floatie - Voyage Out * Eilien - Digital Lovers * Onsy - MetaConc * Joseph Shabason - The Fellowship * Elephant9 - Arrival of the New Elders * Path of the Sun - Path of the Sun * Helado Negro - Far In * Curved Light - A User's Guide to Existence
  3. There are some great tracks scattered around on various Aleksi releases but the recent avalanche of new stuff has burned me out on it. I agree that of the recent stuff the Ovuca is the best.
  4. Actually I think I have plenty of Colundi already.
  5. Yeah generally I find live ambient sets to be noodly and dull but this one sets a mood from start to finish.
  6. Nice old school ambient of epic length. Their LP is one of my most listened to on AI.
  7. I generally much prefer his ambient stuff over his beats but this is a nice middle ground.
  8. Yeah this one didn't really work for me either. I prefer the stuff he does that has more bite.
  9. His previous one was well done but the style didn't click with me. I'm liking this one much more on first listen.
  10. I'm always surprised at how relatively straightforward Errorsmith's music is since his tools are quite experimental. It's not necessarily a bad thing just not what you'd expect.
  11. His stuff is very consistently good. I should probably listen to it more often than I do. I've been a fan since the early Locust/Autocreation days.
  12. I'm guessing it's a reference to the urban myth you can get high smoking dried banana peels? Implying this music is for psychedelic lightweights I guess? Boomkat does have some good finds in their recommended release lists but I don't even bother to read their reviews anymore. I'll go to Twitter for that level of discourse if I feel like I really need it.
  13. You can always count on Boomkat for a dumb, dismissive hot take of anything that doesn't fit their hipster agenda of the week,
  14. He's done a lot of tracks over the years that I really like but this recent firehose dump of stuff has burned me out. Sorry.
  15. I would pay good money for quality downloads of the classic Zoviet*France albums. I'm hoping the recent vinyl reissues are a sign that this is going to happen eventually.
  16. More inventive abstract beats on the consistently intriguing OOH-Sounds label (Synalegg, Georgia etc). I gotta say ten euro for a 30 minute album is a bit on the nose though.
  17. His recent work has been consistently excellent. I'm looking forward to this one.
  18. Infuriating but it's only available on vinyl & streamers. Might also be obtainable by less direct means. 🙂
  19. I've noticed this as well. Having unlimited access to all the music in the world has actually made me enjoy listening to music less. I think there's a psychological effect at play here. Too much choice and too little investment in each choice. I'm much happier when I have deep engagement with a smaller number of records. But that does mean as an artist I'm less likely to ever listen to your work at all, which is ok.
  20. Thanks for the thoughtful response dcom. Given what a pittance streaming services pay it seems like probably the best thing to do as a listener is not support them at all and just preview off Bandcamp and pay for the stuff you think is worth it. And I guess we all have our own ideas of how much we're able and willing to pay for new music. Back in the CD era I would regularly spend $200/month on music. I could still do that now if I wanted to but given how much stuff I already have sitting here ready to be listened to I think for my own habits one new album a week is about my max. In general I'd rather pick up something from a new artist than an artist I already have in my library but I'll make exceptions for favorites or for artists that really vary their style from one release to another. I do worry that there's a whole new generation of people that view music as something that's essentially worthless and belongs slotted into an algorithmically generated playlist to fit a particular mood.
  21. Yeah for sure. I've let my streaming subs lapse and have just been listening to the stuff I already have. But that's reminded me how many great records I already have that deserve closer listening and sets a very high bar for new stuff to enter the queue.
  22. As a case in point. I like this new Hoavi album: https://peakoil.bandcamp.com/album/invariant If I were streaming I'd listen to it at least a few more times. But I don't think I like it enough to buy it so if I'm only listening to music I own then this and many records like it won't quite make the cut to be heard at all beyond a preview.
