  1. I don't know! Other than the arcola ep last year there hasn't been much in a while, and the wording on the page is kinda vague..
  2. Replying to this necrothread (rather than starting my own) because preorders are up for the 12" again on their website (not on bandcamp tho). I just nabbed mine. Oh, they also just released a compilation album called Lost Fragments https://dreamcatalogue.com/store/product/2814-lost-fragments/
  3. Nice. I honesty think Plaid is at their strongest when making short, focused releases. All the EPs of theirs I have are solid.
  4. Liking this one enough that I might even pick it up on wax when local shops finally stock it--which I haven't done with Plaid in a while
  5. I wouldn't call winning a grammy underrated.. Medulla is a lovely album though I don't really see the similarity other than "uses vocal patterns." I find she nods to Laurie Anderson far more than Bjork. The mixing, sound design, overall focus is completely different as are the vocal styles: HH's is closer to Bulgarian singing at times, and the fragmented sacred harp track was pretty sweet tbh.
  6. Picked it up on wax today. It's a real treat. I also don't mind her write-up. Heaven forbid that anyone should think a thought nowadays
  7. Sounds fine. Back in the 90s when I pulled out any of this music people reacted to it like it was pointless noise from another planet, so I'm glad to see he is not taking it easy. I'll figure out how much I like it after a few more listens
  8. It was on the 3x10" vinyl release, which had two tracks the CD release didn't have. I managed to snag it on ebay for peanuts many years ago. It's too bad it was a limited release for so long, I personally like it more than the original.
  9. ..if only they knew how popular it would become ~15 years later (time 1:48-2:00) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1RWsdH_ZmM&feature=youtu.be&t=107
  10. I liked it at first. Then I didn't like it so much--for quite a while too... I'd put it on and be like "meh" every time by the end of track 2, though produk was kinda nifty Final verdict: I like it a lot now. Though I wish that Earth Portal would have stayed with that thick synth/vocal loop near the end a touch longer.. ;) I think it clicked after I heard Collapse (which is easily my favorite Aphex Twin release since analord 10)
  11. Great, it's nice to get a new fsol track in my inbox every month
  12. It shows up for me and I only bought the digital release on the AE store. Time for a listen party.
  13. Total agreement... I've appreciated the technicality in his prior work, but this is the album that does it for me, feels like his ideas have finally gelled in a superb way. Oh well, at least he got this: https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/dance/8485269/billboard-dance-chart-upstarts-galantis-paul-oakenfold-richard-devine
  14. We all have our own tastes, nothing wrong with that. I don't require melody but it's not about refinement it's just me. I used to like to fall asleep listening to household appliance drones when I was a kid... To be fair though, in some of the tracks that don't sound overtly melodic there is some tonal stuff buried in the mixes. It's not like, super melodious just subtle and I'm hearing more of it with repeat listens that I didn't the first few times through.
  15. There's some details toward the end of this interview. http://www.synthtopia.com/content/2018/11/02/richard-devine-interview-on-making-his-new-album-sortlave/
