  1. I put it on today and had a fresh experience with it, about a year since the last listen. Just on reading the last page I see a few are in agreement about the middle of this album being total standout material, beginning with ecol4 and (for me) coming down four tracks later with ii.pre esc. These tracks are mind-blowing and share so much detail and space together that were they actually a 4-track EP, I would find it flawless as Envane. And after all of that, to end with TM1 open is a power move and an absolutely bonkers track and what I want more of from them. Brilliant in a nearly different direction. This album has realllllly sunk in for me and it's a new favorite. Glad others love it too.
  2. this is good shit as always. it’s been one filthy elixir and a backdrop to my shitty personal life, dumped (1.5 yrs living together) and moving in a panic across the city, just obliterating my car speakers while i drive all my shit thrown into trashbags back and forth. um, it’s fucking good
  3. it's good, and it's probably not what SOPHIE imagined from AE when she sent her wish out into the ether. is there a thread where I can find more Sam and Rand fanfic?
  4. play this loud. new listens show the quieter details buttressing the chords/pads. very much like their middle era stuff, like others have said. i think some of the simplicity in the harmonies is deceptive for a first listen
  5. ooo I'm gonna touch my weiner, this is good shit.
  6. Bars and restaurants will be closed in WA state, as well as "entertainment and recreational facilities". Events of 50+ now banned. Will be really interesting to see what happens next to reimburse all of these businesses and employees.
  7. I'm also a WA resident, sorry to hear about your situation man. I've heard there are definitely state resources for people whose employment is affected by this virus. Employment Security Department: https://esd.wa.gov/newsroom/covid-19 Best of luck.
  8. I can understand the sentiment, but also noteworthy is how readily people ignore the effects of day-to-day living this has for everyone. You can consider immediate effects on your life and also the global and life-threatening implications of the virus, too. These aren't mutually exclusive.
  9. Seattle update, schools are closed in three counties until April 24. 250+ person events are banned. Kremwerk and many venues have all but completely shut down and tickets are being refunded. I predict a lot of these measures will in fact roll into summer, which means my hopes of not being depressed all year long are definitely in jeopardy
  10. I live downtown and have been ordered to work from home until May. if this restriction on large events creeps into my June/July Seattle festivities, this completely spoils the only good season in the region and I'm going to cry.
  11. I just saw their performance in Seattle last week and it was incredible. You won't be disappointed. Since the concert I've had Riceboy Sleeps on steady rotation. Looking forward to giving this a listen.
  12. Bias and everything after it are pretty damn good. My friend recommended this, and I can see the placement with Jon Hopkins, Jamie XX, Four Tet, etc (and I listen to them, too) but there's a sparseness here laid out in every track. I haven't hooked deeply into it yet. It's still great though? Sea-Watch leading into Apoptoses is a beautiful thing.
  13. I threw a little money at some 12"s. But I reallly wanted to throw more money at ae. for some reason I kinda like the art, i'll call it punk because that artwork doesn't give a shit that nobody thinks it looks good.
