  1. ‘Mechanosphere’ is Cam Deas’ abstract yet poignant 2nd album exploring ideas of rhythmic dissonance and head-spinning proprioceptions for The Death of Rave. Following directly from his cultishly-acclaimed mini-LP ‘Time Exercises’, which was surprisingly deployed in Richie Hawtin’s recent ‘CLOSE COMBINED - LIVE’ mix and hailed as “Holy F#ck-What is This?!?” by Brainwashed, his new album applies rich polychromatic colour to his signature rhythmic constructions with a greatly heightened emotive traction and broader appeal while only going deeper on his radical ideas about the fundamentals of sound and composition. Big recommendation if you're into Autechre, Xenakis, Ligeti, Rashad Becker. https://boomkat.com/products/mechanosphere Definitely worth checking out of you like the noisier side of recent Autechre.
  2. The Small Victories book that came out last year by Adrian Harte is a great read, especially covering the 85-95 era. These guys were and are still an original and brilliant band. I am an unashamed Patton fan and some of the Tomahawk material flirted with FNM styles. I personally rate Sol Invictus as a great comeback, and sick as I got of Epic, there's 2 vids on YouTube decontructing the songs into their individual channels - Puffys drums, Gould's bass and Martin's guitar on that song are just astounding when heard in isolation. Bungle are great also, virtuosity beyond belief, and Secret Chiefs 3 are worth checking if you dig Spruance (the Zorn albums are best). Sent from my OnePlus A5010
  3. I'm dipping into this awesome discography, will be definitely giving this man my money on bandcamp. Christmas has come early. Thanks WATTM! Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk
  4. That was an immense gig. Seriously sounded 1st class in that environment. Intense. Thanks Sean and Rob.
  5. *not valid unless it is pitched down 🤦‍♂️
  6. Serious LP5 vibes on bqbqbq and Chiastic Slide vibes on debris_funk -from the now long forgotten classic NTS1. I got the vibe they were reworking old material when I first heard this session but I could be reading too much into it. So far all 6 hours have been an absolute joy, challenging, satisfying and bewildering. [emoji108] Here's to the last two hours. It's been a fine Aepril.
  7. Oh my give me the physicals bleepstore take my money [emoji108]
  8. An immense 2 hour journey. Last 'track' sounds, to me, like a version of Coils 'Queens of the Circulating Library' put through the Ae blender. I'm checking the Ae bleepstore constantly, take my money! Sean pls.
  9. This took a listen or two to really kick in but it's a pretty great album. Best since Songs of love and hate imo. Strong Killing Joke vibes too, ain't no bad thing.

  12. This is much better than Vulnicura, but she is never likely to surpass Vespertine. Biophilia was the best this side of that album. It's a good album, the electronics seem pushed to the background which has both good and bad points depending on the track. Bjork ain't ever gonna change up the vocal style so it's really whether you can dig the backing. As has been said it does sound lush and I think I will revisit it a few times, there's little to grab on to....but peak Bjork has long past so I doubt she's gonna reinvent the wheel.

  13. This is a solid album again from MESH. The beats, when they arrive, are outstanding. Already prefer this over Piteous Gate, there's a flow to these tracks that make the album a good start to finish listen. Sent by magic using Tapatalk
  14. Agreed, stunning album. AOTY for me hands down. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Excellent album, listened through twice. Well worth the wait. Live stuff off recent gigs in YouTube looks and sounds well good too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
