  1. This is a bit of a weird one and I’m still trying to digest it, but the first track just bores me to tears. Would be happy if I never heard a minor key generative synth patch in my life again lol. Other tracks are a lot more interesting, but I’m still on the fence with the rap track. Overall kind of a disappointment given his past few albums and killer Pendant releases
  2. So perfectly delightful, have had this on loop nonstop pretty much! Nice to have stuff like this in these trying times
  3. Age Of never really stuck with me but I have been playing this new one on repeat for a while now. Also it’s funny that he is using tons of drums in his tracks now, considering he used to eschew percussion completely and even went so far to say in an interview he hated snares! Nice to see him change it up.
  4. Was truly not expecting these types of feels on a new AE album. Incredible stuff even if I’m slightly disappointed in not as much fuckery going on
  5. I really love “Salmataxia” under his Syndrone alias back in 2004. Some nice Confieldy chaotic stuff but with a more melodic bent that he’s always been pretty good at (BoC esque even). But yeah I think Rooms is his best and still holds up
  6. Yo Vol 4 is out and it’s amazing! Hard to say yet where it fits in my ranking of the other 3 albums, but on first few listens I definitely like it more than Vol 3 and maybe even Vol 1. Some really nice deep cuts, more melodic in places, but still has some great droney ambience (last 2 tracks). Need to cop the vinyl now!!
  7. This stream is the best thing that happened to working from home
  8. Really excited for this one, been playing the first 3 on repeat. 2 is definitely the best but I can dig what he’s doing on 3
  9. Pendant album is better for me too, absolutely a fave of the year
  10. I always enjoy new iglooghost but I have to agree, his tracks don’t really stray from the same mood/vibe, and these EPs are no exception. I do like the instrumentation in Clear Tamei a lot though
  11. Got mine today in California, can’t wait to flip over a bunch of vinyl this Thursday
  12. I’ve been coming back to this one over and over. It’s excellent for long walks in the woods. Def one of my fave albums of the year so far!
  13. I really like this, and even though it does feel like these last two releases aren’t cut from the same cloth as the previous ones, I think that’s the point. The Gas project is evolving and still has a lot to offer. Our perception of the old albums is also heavily skewed since Pop can out almost 20 years ago. Time will tell! Also I don’t hear the high pitch frequencies some have complained about, but then again I have mild tinnitus, and apparently Wolfgang Voigt does too! Curious.
  14. Was surprised the new tapes went up on Bleep and was planning to buy them today because Clone’s shipping prices to the US are heinous. Already sold out [emoji853]
  15. This album is surprisingly good, I think the album cover does it a disservice as I was expecting a lot of fun, silly Ceephax tracks. This feels like some of the most mature, developed, emotive (and often melancholy) stuff he’s ever done. Bravo!
  16. hey thanks for reminding me about this one, will bump it again soon!
  17. This is excellent. Doesn't disappoint which is nice considering the last few albums I had big expectations on did
  18. I have a hunch that it wasn't Villeneuve's call to get rid of Johansson. Music was probably the worst thing about this film, aping Vangelis but with none of the musicality. I enjoyed the film and it is visually astounding, also loved the sound design (aside from music). But it fell a bit short because there wasn't enough of it doing it's own thing instead of quoting/retreading scenes and beats from the original. The villains were not nearly as compelling either (and Jared Leto's character sucked). But still I find myself wanting to see it again!
  19. That's fair, I agree it's emotionally cold and often more style than substance. But I still love it all the same. I guess I'm hopeful that the new one will be trying new things and will not just be some kind of retread.
  20. As usual all I see here are people adamantly predisposed to hating a film before it's even out yet because of the untouchable status of the original film. I was always going to give this new Blade Runner the benefit of the doubt because the director has an excellent track record. Let's see for ourselves shall we?
  21. As goofy as it sounds, this seems like a great way to reorient the label and announce a lot of exciting stuff. And judging by how fast the new BOAND vinyl sold out, the Reissues period is probably gonna rake in some serious dough. Happy to see DC continue to do well!
  22. I'm loving the new season, completely cementing that this my fave tv show of all time. If you want that classic Twin Peaks nostalgia please go and watch the original 2 seasons. I'm just happy Lynch can continue to push forward with new ideas, and leave me completely dumbfounded as to what to expect. I understand it's not for everyone, but for those who it resonates with better, it's an absolute treasure!
