  1. Yeah only a couple of listens in but this is a great LP. I do like that Geir is always trying something new, not every one hits the same but he still knocks it out the park every few albums. Early days but this could be up there with Substrata, Shenzhou and Dropsonde, reminds me of N-Plants in places but much more interesting.
  2. Nice, picked up a few bits from there - good to hear Mike's still knocking stuff out. Had many a good time at the Colony records nights he used to run in Shepherd's Bush.
  3. The While EP has actually held up pretty well, first time hearing it in a few years but it certainly beats a lot of the Chiastic-alikes from around the same time. Crunch LP still sounds great, really enjoyed listening to the flacs on some decent headphones. Any other releases in there worth picking up? Already got Disctruction, MAS confusion, Marion & the Funkstorung remix LPs.
  4. For UK folks, looks like Boomkat has some copies of all 3 volumes in. Probably not for long... https://boomkat.com/artists/topdown-dialectic?q[format]=Vinyl
  5. Used to be an instabuy but this time I think I'll wait to hear it first. Every Burial 12 I've picked up from Rival Dealer onwards has ended up on Discogs.
  6. There's been no new album admittedly but 2021 has still been a pretty good year to be a Seefeel fan.
  7. Would be nice if the represses made it to the UK as well, postage from the US is just nuts at the moment.
  8. Maybe I can convince the wife to get heroically stoned with me while I blast out Chiastic and look at the vinyl artwork, just like old times. This is going to be a tough sell though.
  9. Norman have the reissues up - just Chiastic and LP5 though, no Confield.
  10. Nice, wasn't aware of this. All of the stuff on his bandcamp page is a bit daunting but the DAT collections are always worth a listen - this one was an instant buy. Also has anyone noticed the 'gescom' DAT in the photos he uses for these comps? Listening to his stuff from around this time (and considering his autechre links) he could definitely be a contributor...
  11. Yeah Elseq in its current form is kind of all over the place and one of their weaker releases (for me anyway). Cutting and editing it into a more standard format (like an LP and accompanying EP) puts it right up there with their best though.
  12. It's not a deal breaker - 2 second gap between tracks that is only really noticeable on the segue between rupt and vex. Also a glitch one minute into monastic.
  13. My wife had her 1st shot given about a month after our daughter was born. You'll probably find the obstetrics ward pretty locked down (1/2hr visit from just yourself allowed), after release we just kept visitor numbers at home sensible (3 other people basically) until the shots were out the way. Plenty of park meetings though, good excuse to get the pram and get out of the house.
  14. It seems to be all over soulseek but I'm guessing it's a rip of the BBC stream, Pete Tong pops up every now and again. Crazy mix though, definitely one for playing loud. Bonus points for not one but two autechre tracks. BTW if anyone was not keen on paying the €18 bandcamp price for Pool it's now up on bleep / boomkat etc for a much more reasonable £6.99.
  15. I'm not sure there will be a full repress of the vinyl TBH, they could at least update the digital download though.
  16. Good interview on Warp's site: https://warp.net/editorial/from-rapture-to-rupt-the-journey-of-seefeel
  17. Seriously though I watched some too and it was fucking pitiful. As a bonus I can look forward to YouTube recommending me similar antivaxx whining for the next fortnight.
  18. Don't worry, open up the YouTube info and he's got plenty of patreon links and bitcoin donations links, plus loads of cool merch!
  19. Well good news that Dolphinz is not as cheesy as Chemz but phew is it dull. Some extra points I guess for a) sampling what I'm sure is an old Dr Who noise (definitely sounds like Tom Baker rooting around a quarry with K9) , and b) Having the flat-out weirdest release schedule for a 12" ever.
  20. Both glitches have also been pressed on the vinyl and it is a bit jarring. Not a deal breaker but would be nice to have a proper copy.
  21. Yeah the glitch in Monastic has been pressed on the vinyl too, shame it's one of the best new tracks too. Otherwise these releases are sounding pretty good, was never expecting Succour to get a deluxe reissue treatment due to it's initial poor reception, but it's always been a 10/10 album for me.
  22. Ninja Tune forum still about, sort of... http://theforum.cloudapp.net/
  23. Depends on what sort of tracks you're after really. If you're looking for more beats the Rytm is a really interesting drum machine. If you're keen on further synth explorations you could really start mangling your digitone with an octatrack (which can also handle sampled beats at the same time). The Octatrack in particular though will give you a good month of head scratching before you start to get on with it.
  24. If you're looking for a 'scholarly' approach to disease research, 2-hour long YouTube videos probably aren't the best place to start. I did watch a bit of that, and read his original warning statement that got the initial attention. Although I work in oncology rather than virology there were a few bits that raised my eyebrows straight away, specifically what he was saying about NK T-cells which seemed essentially false (or certainly counter to any current thinking). Anyway here's a nicely referenced post that takes apart some of the major claims: https://www.deplatformdisease.com/blog/addressing-geert-vanden-bossches-claims If you are genuinely interested in scholarly research the reference list from that post alone would be a good start.
