  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. "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
  6. 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.
  7. Oh yes my ol pal Benjamin Damage. This is too big to fail.

    Clark - Kiri Variations

    Damn we gonna drop him like he's completely hot? Man I do love Mr. Christopher so hard but this one is dealing me a fit. "Simple Homecoming Loop" is among the most arresting 2:24 he's ever done. Then comes hootin' and hollerin' and pluckin'. I appreciate boundary explorations but I also feel like a hard-of-hearing grandpa sitting from his recliner and yelling "what's all that racket out there?!" in response to the din of a family gathering. I bought it but I think it will take some time to completely slag it off. Combat boot bangers these aren't.
  9. I just have to chime in that I recently got the special edition release of Simple Minds' "Once Upon A Time" and I'm shocked at how good it is. I found "A Brass Band in Africa (Chimes)" to be highly IDM
  10. There is some high quality klob in these packs.
  11. Yes quite so. One way I know it's 2019 and I'm different is that even invoking the bits of that old WATMM meme made me feel somewhat bad. It makes me feel sheepish to say "faggy synth wash" because I wouldn't want it to upset gay people I know in real life. Maybe the internet really is a young man's game
  12. Someone should bridge the 2 somehow. Can faggy synth washes and blast beats live together? Suck my dick.

    Clark - Kiri Variations

    "Primary Pluck" has those Last Panther vibes, which I like. Panther is one of those albums I always forget about but love when I put it on. I can't blame the fella for steering into soundtracking. Probably much better money than what we give him for boof-tits n' compression.
  14. Hahaha qft on that shit for sure. Fuck now I gotta think about that album again. Just when you thought you could be rock solid on an "instabuy" policy for an artist...
  15. Maybe I'm the only WATTMer left standing on ol' Justin but I'm pretty stoked. http://www.boniver.org
  16. For real though. Iron sharpens iron. Would land number 1 on any top anime battles list.
  17. Basically, Jega has always been "I'll see ya when I see ya". Recall that "Variance" was supposed to come out in like 2004 or something but it made it to Soulseek and he got pissed. It didn't ultimately surface until 2009. So as far as "Spectrum 2", give it a 5-10 year leeway
  18. Beograd is A+ track and video. Broke out in gooseflesh at that climax. What in the fuck is up with a 25/10 release date though? 😂
  19. There is that concept floating around on the internet known as "gifs/pics you can hear". Within a millisecond of scrolling onto this pic, the beginning "UUUUAGHHHHHHHH" of Windowlicker just boomed in my skull.
  20. Goddamn I've been howling all morning about his parade speech flubs. “Our army manned the ramparts. It took over the airports. It did everything it had to do. At Fort McHenry, under the rockets’ red glare, it had nothing but victory"
  21. Ol' Bochum is fixin to fall out of my favor and that's really something as a 22 year fan. "Color Me (Mix 2)" is a chopped and screwed "The Garden (and the Chateau)". Just like "Ghost" from the "April EP" was "Marylebone" given the smear treatment. "April EP" wound up being only 1:43 of new music in the form of "Azure" (lush af but still). So now wtf...this 40 minute album gonna actually be 4 minutes of new BW or summat? I used to snicker at the Interlude jokes but I'm getting genuinely peeved at this point. He doesn't owe us anything but fuck. I hate how loving someone's art and gripping onto it so tightly makes you feel like a child in a tantrum. Gotta let it go. Maybe I'll be surprised. EDIT: ok I just did the soundcloud preview, not the bandcamp. "Mavic 1" is gonna bring it all home for me. Sorry Gian, I'm testy
  22. The conspiracy deepens even further when you realize that the first half melody is mostly....."Kid for Today" by BOC *dramatic gopher*
  23. I'm 2 thumbs up on the Anima short--this coming from a guy with very low tolerance for anything involving choreography/interpretive dancing/musicals/etc. There's something about PTA that makes everything gorgeous even if it's hamfisted or artsy. What I appreciated most is that it did have a sense of humor amidst the r/iam14andthisisdeep in the form of that lunchbox. When Thom peeks over the wall and sees the box, he has a nearly cartoonish look of glee. It was quite psychedelic come to think of it.
