I wonder if the difference in timing is just from someone timing it themselves or if it's printed somewhere on the vinyl.

I'm not even gonna read what they thought as I pretty much ignore Pitchfork entirely. They're a bunch of opinionated jerks who think their farts smell like roses and only like music they get to claim they liked first.

  • Rubin Farr changed the title to μ-Ziq - Magic Pony Ride

I love this album. So lush and carefree. I like that it embraces its nostalgia so confidently, it feels like a love letter to the past in a really genuine way.

Really like the beats on this thing so far. Not sure I'm sold on all the melody work yet, it sounds a bit cheesy. Then again, when has mu-ziq not sounded cheesy. It doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing.

Absolutely can't take track timings on Discogs seriously at all.

I was trying to insta-reply with a bunch of tracks from tango n'vectif. But before I'm going to shoot myself in my foot, what do you consider cheesy? If you think tango n'vectif is cheesy...Ueh... I've got nothing your honor.

Save for exceptions like Autechre, most of the folks deserving of a spot on IDM’s Mount Rushmore drop new material in infrequent bursts, often adhering to the glitchy palette of their early work. Like veteran jazz artists or jam bands, they work within their brain-tickling, technically proficient wheelhouse—they still churn out good stuff, but it’s functionally dad rock for lapsed ravers.

lol

It's funny because it's true.

Mwah I don't know. I'm too lazy to look up specific tracks. I always find paradinas' melodies to be a bit cheesy, but I usually like them anyway

It's true, but it's true of just about everyone. There are always exceptions to the rules, but most artists stick to what they do and don't diverge very often. If they're gonna criticize IDM creators for doing the same old same old, they need to say the same for everyone else. It's pretty rare that someone comes along and does something completely unique that blows everyone away and then never tries to repeat that success. And anyway, we all listen to the artists we like because they do something unique unto themselves that other people don't, even if it's one main vein they stay in.

But to the point, Pitchfork sucks.

I don't find it funny, but i totally agree. But we need to find a new term for it. Let me open a new thread for that.
