Nice words and pictures. Makes me want to read a 33 1/3 of MHTRTC, or any BoC album for that matter.

Love anything Simon Reynolds writes. This is the same guy who has been around long enough to coin the term "post-rock" and he was writing books about rave and underground electronic music before the millennium even ended. Bookmarking this for later but I already like his premise of calling this the best pysch album of the 00s. Would of been impossible to claim that at the time of it's release but in hindsight it makes sense.

just nice to read something about one of our favourite bands (even if most of us know the story) it gets a bit tiresome reading twoism posts just for a mild fix

the images def have more of that early chillwave hypnagogic pop vibe, which is heavily indebted to BoC and a few other IDM and mid-90s electronic peers (Casino Vs Japan) in ethos but much different sounding in execution 

 

it's nice to see a discussion of hauntology focused on BoC and that isn't wildly carried away* or about a broader scene/label like Ghostbox Recordings or the lo-fi pop of Ariel Pink or John Maus.

 

*i.e. Adam Harper's Dummy mag vaporwave articles, which ironically pulled out so many assumptions and focused on one artist's intentions (Internet Club) so much that it ended up shaping the genre's ethos itself, including artists and fans unaware of Harper, Dummy Mag, or Internet Club

- I have to say a lot of my hauntology knowledge is indebted to fumi, nebraska, six, and jasondonervan (rip?) among many others here
