Daniel Avery - Ultra Truth

Rubin Farr

Recommended Posts

Will definitely have a listen. Was enjoying some of tracks from his back catalogue last night. Though his recent stuff I’ve heard on bbc6 has been a bit hit and miss (imo)

Styles are all over the place but still cohesive in a way. Great influences. My first time hearing his work as well.

Great use of a Donkey Kong Country sample in the above track.

Pretty sure I hear a Schottkey 7th path sample in this ^ one.

Like I said, great influences!

Ive been listening to this album all week. I feel its his best effort to date imo.

its not bad, and its not great; Daniel Avery reminds me of Four Tet; too much fluff, not ruff enough.

he is getting better and better obviously and some tracks are stuck with me all week

Ultra truth is a highlight

lone swordsman was already released, truly one of the best track of the year.

edit: I fucking love the cover

for those who dont quite see it, im pretty sure it represent the heads of a weed trichome. The artist then added the colors to make it look like a alien... or maybe im just high

Keep meaning to listen to this, I did start it last week but not soon into it the phone rang or the doorbell went and I lost my concentration. Avery has made some really great tracks in the past (including the Lone Swordsmen track which is here)

Agree with watmmisdead that he’s a bit like Four Tet, quite fluffy and a bit pop. But I guess that’s their vibe. 

2 more days at work and then I’m finished for Xmas holidays. Time to do some end of year music foraging.

Drone Logic was solid. He's consistent and this album is good, though I've not listened to it much since the gig at the Outernet a few Fridays back. 

Gig: Not the type of gig I'd normally bother with. Yeah, good, enjoyed it. Was nice hearing All I Need loud. No space to dance. Interesting venue.
