  1. He always does that. Previews one song and doesn't offer the albums anywhere else except Bandcamp. I used to buy everything of his but I can't afford to blind-buy nowadays.
  2. These are shipping now from the store. Vinyl looks nice. I've loved the music from the show so far so this was an instant buy. https://birthmoviesdeath.com/2019/11/04/a-look-inside-trent-reznor-and-atticus-ross-watchmen-soundtrack https://store.nin.com/products/watchmen-soundtrack
  3. Yeah, I know the Boomkat blurb is a bit over-the-top but this is a lovely four-track EP. I totally recommend WATMM to check it out. Enchanted UK synth alchemist XVARR blesses Good Morning Tapes’ vinyl series with a gorgeous suite of ambient electronics certain to resonate with disciples of 0PN, Eno, Zoviet France, Colin Potter. An eldritch beauty ripe with autumnal tone and mushied lushness, ‘She Healed Him In Her Sleep’ follows in the creeping vein of XVARR’s acclaimed 2018 tape ‘Serpent Power’ to bloom his sound with an organic, elemental quality and energy that binds Sufi trance to original kosmische and the kind of quietly humming, pastoral vibe typical of early British synth music. In four tracks XVARR paints rolling sinewave vistas that unfurl with a timelessly slow-burning and romantic vision, ranging from cinematic sentiments that Eno would be proud of, to passages of amniotic ambient atavism and dream sequence arps that seduce listeners to the sweetest soporific states of mind and distract from everyday reality. The gently elegiac synth-brass fanfare and strings of the title song unmistakably owe as much to 0PN as Eno’s stately early work, while the plangent jangle of ‘Past Masters’ surely recalls the hiraeth and pull of the sea and land found in Zoviet France’s enigmatic rituals. The pulsing ‘Echoes of Time’ most poignantly brims with the Eastern-oriented optimism of ‘60s and ‘70s electronics, channelling Harmonia via JD Emmanuel, and ‘Terminal Manoeuvre’ instinctively dowses a bout of BoC-like nostalgia in 3 minutes of lilting melody and elliptical oscillator wooze. We could hardly imagine a lovelier fanfare for the change of the seasons. Time it all with sunset, fleeces and freaky fungi for optimal immersion (and possible optical side-effects). https://boomkat.com/products/echoes-of-time
  4. When Deller and Abrahams delivered their film, Mute Records supremo Daniel Miller loved it but Depeche Mode didn’t seem too interested. The film has been left unloved and “lost” ever since only rarely being screened at festivals.
  5. That Plaid set is the first time any of those four tracks have seen an official release.
  6. Also still listening to this quite a bit. It's probably my favourite thing of the year. I discovered so many new artists thanks to this eclectic mix. Kudos to BOC - they have immaculate taste.
  7. Ah, I didn't think of that. Love that section of the tape.
  8. How was Interlude (The Elegants - Little Star) (1:48:00) identified as that? They were a doo-wop band from the 50s. Looking that song up on YouTube doesn't sound remotely like the Societas X piece.
  9. ? (strings) (1:54:51) - that's a sensational piece. Sounds a little like Tomita. Heavenly.
  10. 'Bataglia' is immense. Everything on this EP has the old 808 State vibe - amazing considering how long they've been going and the considerable time since their last album. Solid work.
