  1. would be hilarious if he disappeared for 10 years and that gif was the last thing until another "comeback" album.. but i shouldn't joke about such things. on a lighter tip, all the amazing live material. am i right in thinking the first 20m of the wakeanblake video is live? insanity
  2. My take is Metz track live was recorded hot and open air reverb so you do lose some mid-synths compared to syro, but you get punchy drums which slap along with the bass, which plays well with the track. Then theres the psycological aspect, that we all knew it was unreleased aphex, and some of the crowd noises are timed just right to make it feel like youre there I indeed had rinsed the metz recording in those in-between years, and so the track was already god-tier.. Was primed to finally have it proper. And while it at first it sounded flat in comparison to that recording, all the wonderfully juicy detail has won me over. In particular once i got the record
  3. same with the mexico show, though i could see how the timing here would sting extra. the exclusivity is a bitch even though im so grateful for the show which was amazing. shows are always inherently limited access which is fine, but imo the product should be '4 tha people'. im mostly freaking out about pretend analog extmix, that needs to be pressed and sent to every good record shop around the world
  4. No, fucking, way.. those are 4 of my favorite tracks of the last few years and they might ALL be among top 10 aphex ever for me. Insane. Too bad I live across the world and will never own that slab of vinyl.. Yes its only material goods but im still struggling not to complain more right now
  5. politics is social, it doesnt just happen in private at the ballot box. Unless youre out there convincing millions to change the electoral system or to vote for your preferred candidate, youre not making a statement. write-in or abstaining only helps trump. Voting for the least worst candidate is making an actual statement. And your second sentence doesnt even make sense. Just because it wasnt perfect to you doesnt mean HRC didnt have a platform.
  6. odd collection of tracks.. ive already been rinsing pancake lizard for the nearly 2 decades its already been officially released. radiator alt is great but i associate too strongly with saw2, which is also already released. slo bird whistle sounds more like a caustic window interlude. p-string im probably most excited for, but again already released on another compilation that it arguably fits better on (TRP006) I get that they have the peel session in common, and not complaining as theyre all good tracks, but cant decide if ill pick them up in this format
  7. for some reason i felt very empty when xyz just ended without john peels voice coming in 'excellent, very nice' that track.. ill continue to listen to both versions (the rip and the new official version) because the rip is so special
  8. ive been sleeping on zuli. that track trigger finger is (one of the many) highlights of the set for me
  9. Digital compilation out nowww!!! Ive been putting it off until this came out so rather excited.. https://ceephax.bandcamp.com/album/acid-cask-trilogy?fbclid=IwAR2W937cSbUObmL1iBThAEJj111XY3vt0JDoaWCmR7WTr6eJbNQ6mcJA70o
  10. Yeah i hear it. its a great album closer, once you get in the groove it doesnt feel like 9m long. I do feel like some of the songs on this album just fade out or end like he didnt know how to end it. But that one feels 'complete'. Since no one has brought it up.. how horrible is that album cover.. i immediately think of those douchey ed hardy shirts whenever i see it
  11. my opinion of this album hasnt changed too much, which is to say, i still quite like it! Its objectively not as strong as pbvgr, but i really appreciate that he is pushed a new sound and expanded on it for a whole album, rather than just churning out more of the same. i can already sense a bit of cult status (kind of like discovering weird pop albums from the 80s where you go 'what were they thinking' but kind of dig it anyway)
  12. @Tim_J would hang out at your place.. with tunes like that spinnin..
  13. Just did a quick interview check, and they explicitly call the album like a soundtrack in almost every one of them. So imo.. the album is 'successful' in the goals it set out with The interviews are catalogued here for further reading: https://bocpages.org/wiki/Interviews#Tomorrow.27s_Harvest_era Mike: If we’re talking about contemporary composers there are too many to mention really. I’d say maybe Reinhold Heil, Johnny Klimek. Also Mark Isham, Thomas Newman, Clint Mansell Sandison: "There are quite a few influences on this record. Carpenter is kind of an easy reference point for most people though I'd say the main ones would be Fabio Frizzi, John Harrison and Mark Isham. We're very much into grim 70s and 80s movie soundtracks so there are maybe nods to composers such as Stefano Mainetti, Riz Ortolani, Paul Giovanni, Wendy Carlos, even Michael Nyman Sandison: "For example, I guess the timing of the whole intro section to the album, the neutral tension in the high strings hanging right at the start of the record, or that short glimmer of hope that takes over in New Seeds near the end of the track. Those things hopefully imply a visual element. Some tracks deliberately finish earlier than you want them to, like actual cues in older soundtracks where they've been ripped out of much longer original masters that nobody ever gets to hear. MS:. Actually, we decided early on that we wanted to give it a soundtrack feel, but to make this type of album is a real challenge without it sounding too cheesy. So when we started working, we listened to a lot of soundtracks, including some from the 80s, by focusing on specific issues, studying the practices in terms of layout and timing. The ideas we learned gave us a framework, a structure to expand upon. We knew exactly how it should begin and how it would end.
  14. Nothing that hasn´t already been said here, but its their most soundtrack-y release, it opens up beautifully when reading or watching something where it can enhance the mood. Example: it makes A+ listening for a wikipedia binge about the Atacama desert (driest place on earth, strange or non existant plant life, abandoned mining towns) I also need to revisit some of the composer references they name-dropped in interviews when it came out.
  15. to play devils advocate.. i think this is good but not amazing.. every song has a similar palette (wow check out my modular synth). dont doubt that id love to hear it on a club soundsystem, but for home listening i dont think it could hold my attention
