  1. Great album. It has a chilled lonliness about it that scratches my itch. Being more of a band instead of Thom over dinky beats works very much in its favour compared to the Eraser/Atoms for Peace etc. Those are too full of clicky clacky things beats. I think Radiohead and adjacent are much better as primarily a guitar driven rock band with some electronic flourishes than diving full into electronics (same is true for most rock bands)
  2. Indeed this is a very good release!
  3. It is very reminiscent of Gridlock. Not quite as crunchy, but the vibe is there. Trace is my favourite Gridlock album.
  4. The new Dryft album is out. I've been waiting for this one for a long time! I'm a huge fan of Gridlock, and thought the Dryft album Ventricle was great stuff. Not so big on Mike Cadoo's other stuff, and the last Dryft album was a let down. On first listen, this is pretty nice. Moody, rich and melodic just the way I like it. https://n5md.bandcamp.com/album/from-stasis
  5. Well shit, that's clearly the original! Some sort of IDM mix. Could have just been one of those "unofficial" mixes where someone puts an IDM track underneath the pre-existing vocals. Cheers, really appreciate the direction here!
  6. Hi all, A friend of mine bought up a track we used to listen to from back in the 2002ish era and I've been driving myself nuts trying to track it down. This was in the early days of file sharing so it was labelled as Aphex + Squarepusher which is clearly nonsense. Anyway, it had a female vocalist through the whole track over a jazzy IDM beat, nothing too heavy and the vocals weren't chopped up or processed really. Likely a remix. Some of the lyrics were something like "the blood red lullaby echoing" Pls halp if anyone has any leads!
  7. Much of my favourite music was critically panned on release, or only appreciated years later. I've never been in touch with genres that are seen as "hot". I find these sorts of outlets that try and play "taste maker" based on whatever genres are seen as cool/uncool at that particular point in time come across as fickle and transient.
  8. Amputechture is their best album. I'm getting the itch to go on another Volta/Omar binge.
  9. Nick Cave is the man. I like the rockier more unhinged stuff. Hopefully another Grinderman album comes to fruition. For albums, Let Love In and Dig, Lazarus, Dig! I would recommend strongly. Abattoir Blues double album as well. These are good starting points if you want the rock side of things.
  10. I was a big fan of Syl Kougai's album on Schematic a few years back so was waiting for new tunes from him. He's been dropping his Modular Series one track at a time in the lead up to the full album releasing later this month. It's pretty good. Great sound design and pretty mind bending, but approachable and structured enough to keep you moving. Track 5 il tombe especially is a total banger for fans of Autechre etc https://sylkougai.bandcamp.com/album/modular-series-season-01
  11. Only recently got around to giving this a listen and it's great! I preferred the first two beatier albums to the more ambient stuff, but this is a nice return to form for me.
  12. Good lord Fourth Rendezvous is a cheese overdose. Jarre can't help but serve up a slab of cheese on most albums. Funny because most of Rendezvous is quite dark. That track is totally out of place!
  13. I went to see them in Melbourne in 2010, and before the gig started I overheard some people talking about how they were looking forward to hearing "Autechno". I could tell that the whole group of 6 had no idea who they were and had just seen the name somewhere, hoping for a nice night of club music. I had a bit of a chuckle to myself and thought these poor bastards have no idea what they are in for...
