  1. Nice bass sound. It's all right. Maybe not quite the second coming the bleep hype makes it out to be for $17 USD plus shipping (The youtube auto play went to Coil, Love's Secret Domain after this track and I was reminded just how crazy their production was back in 1990-1991)
  2. Only halfway through. So far: If Sign was their Oversteps/LP 5 side, Plus feels like a return to their EP7 side.
  3. I ordered halfway through the show and still received my download. Had to fully refresh the site but it was there
  4. I had a hunch and bought the album halfway through the stream. Just got my downloads. Gotta say, releasing the album right after the stream was really classy. Nice one 🙂
  5. This album is gonna be perfect for late night walks in my locked down post apocalyptic increasingly sketchy neighborhood
  6. This one is kind of reminiscent of Boards of Canada High Scores territory. Nice.
  7. I like peak AE abstraction, but this lushness with recognizable chord progressions and shit is pretty sweet actually
  8. I refuse to read the chat. Just gonna sit here and enjoy my bubble water beats
  9. Anyway, FSOL has always been good about this stuff as you can just pick it up on their website later
  10. I don't know honestly either. The last time I tried to figure this out was when the Brian Eno/Kevin Shields RSD release went out two years ago. I called almost every record shop in town (and there's quite a few here). Most of them told me that had no idea what they were getting until they got it and had to go digging. Half a day later, one of the smallest shops in the city got back to me, they had received one copy, of course by the time they called me it had sold to someone else. Since then, I don't have the time or energy to bother with RSD
  11. Nice, going to take a listen. Some of my local shops have spread out RSD over the fall. I wish RSD didn't have to be so hyped and weird, and suppliers could just let us and shops know what releases they were getting, because I'd pick up the 12" locally if it were available
  12. Can't wait for the fake pre-release "rip"!
  13. Pulled out Confield today for a COVID walk, firs time in years. Track 5 gave me goosebumps. Usually chill and trippy feels otherwise
  14. Late 90s--I tried playing Aphex Twin for people my age and they couldn't follow the beat, buncha lamers. I played the opening track of ICBYD for my folks and they were dancing around--but I guess they had more of a musical and jazz background. It was hilarious though I keep debating buying the double album online version, but like, I already have a copy on wax and cd so.. how many copies...
  15. Kicking myself for not picking this up on wax when 7.1 and 7.2 were sitting in the used bin for cheap a year ago.
  16. I figured I needed to put some video with my music projects and this happened
  17. 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..
  18. 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/
  19. Nice. I honesty think Plaid is at their strongest when making short, focused releases. All the EPs of theirs I have are solid.
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. 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
