  1. Biting my tongue here but yeah can't hold it...since it was only 8 bucks and change, I said "fuck it" and bought it whole but let's be real, it's probably a $2.75 album if you strip filler. I found myself upset while listening because as lush as he hits, there's a laziness to his tracks. "Mavic1" could really be something big but just letting it toggle between A and B for a couple of minutes...I dunno, simplicity is great but if you're gonna recycle your work ad absurdum, pick a few pearls and really develop them. I do like this album. I shouldn't pick so hard at it. Just lush choons.
  2. Oh me brothers, I got in the cups tonight and while this album was cumlush sober, it just really started fuckin' hittin' after some cheap Cabernet. On "Paradise Engineering", I was so satisfied floating between B minor and A major--very Bochum Welt. Those other staccato counterpoint bits flying into those pads is like pretzel sticks in molten chocolate. As if that wasn't enough, he hits that....fuck, I dunno, a diminished F sharp minor? It just sends opiate waves up my back for some reason. Here, I hope I don't regret this or get copyright struck:
  3. Future classic for me personally based on the stream. I know it's "limited palette" and a bit simple but goddamn is it effective for me.
  4. This is going to seem really ridiculous for some but I always knew Herbie Hancock as a background force. I loved the "Rockit" video when I was a kid. I just heard the "Head Hunters" album for the first time and it blew my mind. I haven't stopped listening to it for days. I see "Hard Normal Daddy" in an entirely new light 22 years later. When "Sly" kicks off at 2:02, lawd have mercy
  5. This is exactly like taking a Yamaha DJX out and hitting the "whoo!", "GET UP!", "*record scratch*" keys except completely devoid of irony.
  6. Are we not gonna talk about the Aphex logo in the corner of his notepad? Collaboration rumors confirmed.
  7. So I definitely get the Christian bend but I just googled "is Sufjan Stevens gay?" and read some of the strangest sites ever. Multiple sites said "his music is definitely queer but the jury is out on his orientation". I only know him from "Carrie and LOL" which is among the best albums I own. I can't understand what is "queer" about it. Is it because he talks frankly about feelings? Simon and Garfunkel is o.g. queer music? One of the IDM handicaps is that when you try to come back to Earth from outer violvoic, it's difficult to make sense of the Norman indie music critiques.
  8. Solid effort. Pretty confident he'll never top his 2011 eponymous but I still dig where he's going. It takes longer to digest but there's some pure lush on there in the form of "Sh'Diah" and "iMi". Inevitably, indie rockers will stumble across the pop-up book "1,2,3--Autechre and Me!" and try their hand at universe blending. I have to hand it to Radiohead for keeping their identity regardless of how iddum it got but Justin is getting a little messy in his sandbox. I t's ok to gonk out on an NTS tip but burying neofolk in the smears at the bottom makes for a confusing listen. Dunno, probably be either AOTY for me in a month or so or I'll forget all about it.
  9. I don't know what is behind this but the more she brings it up e.g. "we're not having sex tonight!" or, in your case, "this is not romantic", the more likely it is you'll close the deal. The "we're not doing it!" woman still kept slamming every drink I bought her and I just joked about it like "of course we're not! I'm not that kind of girl". I later discovered a very nice matching underwear set with the freshest wax I've ever seen so what was all that hullabaloo? Can't talk about it too openly because it sounds like I'm advocating "just give it to her, they all want it". Not so. It's such a weird dance that I'm getting too tired to do. Best to dip and read the BoC subforum.
  10. "Chicago" is from the Phial EP. How I rinsed and rinsed that track after nabbing the EP from a pre-Napster FTP mine. It slaps 20 years on. Right, should have refreshed the edit ah well I got to jerk off about it anyway

    Clark - Kiri Variations

    I love this album. I deleted "Kiri's Glee" and it fixed the flow for me personally. Last Panthers was good but nothing really stuck in my mind about it. This one definitely earworms in ways Panthers didn't. "Simple Homecoming Loop" into "Bench" is just sublime. I feel badly for Chris somehow-it's like suuuuure, Richard can prep his pianos and swing his pendulums but as soon as Clark gives it a solid go, there's a weird "fuck you" response lol
  12. Too thick to realize this is out today. Trained on those "see you in 5 months" new release announcements. Shinra doing house, maaan he should stay here for sure. Benjamin beefed them drums (I've always found Jim's beats anemic, only critique) and those Beltran mixes slap. Best $6 I've spent in ages.
  13. Oh yes my ol pal Benjamin Damage. This is too big to fail.
