  2. Some more albums recently listened: Pram - Dark Island Macabre; lounge/jazzy; noir soundtrack sort of stuff. A very English type of sinister. A mixture of instrumentals employing all sorts of music box type of sounds. The vocal tracks are dark tales of lost love and possession sung in almost leaden style, which suits the atmosphere of the album perfectly. 6/10 Green Velvet - Walk in Love Stripped down banging house music. Love this guy. I love the way his albums are a mixture of very personal tracks as well as comedy ones; or cynical comments on clubland and the media. He manages to get a lot of meaning across in a style not normally known for it. Some really banging beats on here as well. 7/10 Casino vs Japan - Go Hawaii I should have listened to this more, for the length of time I've had the album. Boards of Canada-style distorted beats and lush synthy melodies. But altogether a lot more jolly and summery. And as the name suggests, reminiscent of Hawaii...or reminiscent of how Hawaii seems in films and tv adverts anyway. Very pleasant without ever getting twee or cloying. 7/10 Fanu - Daylightless (1st half only) Dark complex intricate drum'n'bass. Yeah some sick dark beats basically, lots of Asian-sounding vocal samples. A bit like some of Enduser's stuff. Doesn't quite veer into full on breakcore but getting there at points. I think the second disk is half-tempo tracks. 6/10 for now Baby Ford - Basking in the brake lights Minimal techno/micro house. A mixed bag; some decent tracks and some that don't leave much of an impression. Would probably be better suited to wobbling round a seedy dancefloor at 5am. 5/10 for now, needs more listens
  3. welcom aboard matey! watch yr steps though, this type of thingy could cause u a bit of trouble.. ha yes I didn't think that would be a popular view. Just feel like I'm still waiting for that 'click' moment with some of their stuff.
  4. I'm new to watmm so I hope it's OK to just jump straight in. Some albums recently listened: Autechre - Confield Obviously something of a sacred cow. I've had it kicking around for years but never listened to it in its entirety. And I just can't get into it; I enjoy some of the tracks (Bine, Uvoil, Eidetic Casein) but at least half of it just leaves me cold. Seems silly to give it a rating as it is such a classic for some people, but mine would have to be 5/10 Cocteau Twins - Treasure An oldie but a fairly recent addition to my collection. Ethereal, dreamy chamber pop. This is definitely a slow grower. Not sure if it'll ever attain classic status but I can see it really fitting certain contexts. I haven't really differentiated all the tracks but lots of them are worming their way into my mind which has to be a good sign. 6/10 for now Lukid - Onandon Pleasant but unremarkable, lolling breakbeaty/trip-hoppy/electronica. Still getting to know this one, 6/10 for now Higher Intelligence Agency - Colourform Classic early 90's electronica, bit of an acid/psychedelic tinge. This would be perfect soundtrack to some a post-clubbing session (and I'm sure has been many times). It's not quite up there with some of the other classics from time for me; it's just not quite as varied or idiosyncratic as FSOL/Aphex/Black Dog. Decent though. 6/10
