Never managed to get into Lone, tried a few times in the past but never hooked me in, but I constantly read high praise about him. I think I’ll try again when this new album drops.

I wasn't immediately hooked either. it was Galaxy Garden that finally made the light bulb go off for me. that IMO is his best. 

and I remember whenever Lemurian came out in 2008, it was met with rather lukewarm reception on here. the 2 main complaints were the awful album art, which resembled something like one of those year 2000 ibiza DJ comps. and that it fell into the "sounds like a BoC ripoff" camp, a la Tycho. thankfully Lemurian was re-released a few years back with new album art, which fit the summery, laid back, blazed out, instrumental hip-hop vibe that album is known for.

Underwhelmed by both of the singles that are listenable on bandcamp, which is sad because he’s one of my favorite artists.  Would’ve snagged that deluxe edition immediately if I dug either track.   Maybe I just have too high of expectations — I’m hoping that at least a couple of the songs will blow me away though.  
 

Otherwise, cheers to Matt on the release!

Bumping this…

In case you haven’t already been listening, Lone has been doing a monthly guest mix called Ancient Astronauts on Noods Radio the first Sunday of every month. If you don’t catch it live he’s been putting them up on his SoundCloud a day or two after.

Every mix so far has been so good. New one airs tomorrow 8pm UK time I think? 2pm where I’m at in the US.

Anyways, this mix series has been great if you want to pass some time waiting for his new album 🤙

I like this new one a lot:

 

ohhhh ye, busted my ass out into the gooseflesh. I think I'll go ahead and preorder based on this one. What a tasty cover too.

I played this a couple of times today. Been a fan since Lemurian - somebody on here recommended it back in the day. Not totally blown away by this - lots of tracks just sound so similar to one another. Only the last track has any real, emotional resonance for me.

Good to see he's still releasing stuff though.
