The Black Dog - Tranklements


Recommended Posts

  • 1 month later...

IT's a nice chilled out album. I like a lot of the tracks. And though I'm not the biggest Black Dogs fan around I can say with confidence that I like this a lot more than some of the previous releases.

 

My favorite is First Cut, always has been since the soundcloud album samples were out. Wish they'd had more of that but oh well. I was going to preorder the vinyl and all but it's a bit expensive... I still might though...

Probably my favorite too with "Cult Mentality"

In fact, I like the whole album, I wasn't expecting something like this from The Black Dog anymore.

 

This album is really consistent and I really like the way they put together these IDM, Techno & Ambient tracks.

My favorite release from them since "Music For Real Airports"

Atavistic sounds like a real nice semi-vintage TBD-track, more in the spirit of Radio Scarecrow, which is lovely! (Although Music For Real Airports was a great release, too!)

 

I think I'll get this. TBD somehow produce the most honest, most un-pretentious, most straight forward and downright enjoyable tunes. It's sympathetic.

Yeah that's a good way to describe their sound/tracks. It's clean, it's straightforward, and that's about all I expect from them so I'm happy.

Same here. Best thing they've put out since then.

I 100% agree with this.

Triple LP £45. LOL

I think you may have retardation. the price is £25, not £45.

 

 

Named after the Sheffield slang for trinkets, the ninth LP from IDM trailblazers The Black Dog is a retro electronic pop goldmine. From the opening squelch bass and sci-fi keyboards of ‘Alien Boys’ to the warehouse techno of ‘Cult Mentality’ and ‘Bolt 93’... more

Yeah but shipping through the Dust Store is kinda murder. The bonus stuff though like two free tracks you don't get anywhere else is worth it however.

it's only 'murder' if you're outside of the UK, which KGW isn't.

 

Also, Bleep price doesn't include shipping price. so shipping would be extra, and still be more expensive than Dust store, very likely.

OK so we were both right and Bleep is having a right laugh!

 

My mum and dad live in Sheffield, reckon tBd would let them go round and pick it up?

It's the first post-Plaid TBD I listen to and I have to say I'm a bit disappointed. I do agree it's straight-forward but at the same time the tracks don't seem to go anywhere and it doesn't even sound too pretty most of the time. It's not too bad, though, just a bit boring... Should I check out any of their other albums in particular? I liked Bytes and Spanners a lot...

Going from that soundcloud clip, I think I'm going to like this one. These are relaxed tunes to have on in the background with enough progressions to keep things interesting. It's probably going to sound retarded, but I generally like these soulful typed techno tunes. There's indeed a risk of boredom, but I feel these tracks have enough of an edge and personality to keep things interesting.

 

Hasn't got much to do with old TBD, but I don't know why people are even thinking about having to make that argument anymore. That's ancient history.

Hadn't heard the preview until now ... some of it sounds a tad too "clubby" for me. I prefer it when they are a bit more serious like on Radio Scarecrow and Music For Real Airports. The track starting around 14:40 is so sweet though, I might buy it for that one alone. What's it called?

      I can't get enough of these people. Over these past weeks I have been taking a deep dive into their discog again and they have some of my fav records of all time. Spanners takes the cake with Silenced as a close second. I love all of these projects so much. Music for adverts is defo the most underrated one of them all.

      I should have probably posted this on the music discussion, but as were such a central part of the dog in the past, i think it's in the right place.
       
      Are there any early interviews around the interwebs? scans? anything?

      Artist : Paranerd
      Title: Silktrops
      Label: Touched Music
      Cat no: TM38
      Format: CD 100 Only/Digital
      Country: U.K.
      Style: IDM/Electronica Release Date August 25th 2017
       
      Description.
      The excellent Touched Music for Macmillan Cancer Support, standby to release the third album by Canadian producer Paranerd, ‘Silktrops’. It’s dropping this week on CD and digital formats, with striking, colourful cover art and a promise to provide acid, ambient, braindance music.
      From the first track, Paul Goguen delivers on all fronts, with funky, laid back beats, reminiscent of early Detroit techno and lush interweaving pads and melodies. If braindance music is the ability of it to transport the listener to a faraway place with disco dancing astronauts, ‘Droid Shop’, ‘Fmeem’ and ‘Silktrops’ pack in enough dream inducing ambience and head bopping rhythm, to take you there instantly (wherever ‘there’ is for you!).
      The pace drops a few BPMs for the beautiful ‘Bellint’, awash with atmosphere and echo, a subtle vocal sample and some stunning detuned melodies. The melodies seemingly cross the divide back to a punchy faster beat for ‘Froz’, creating a nice contrast to the filter swept low harmonies and light high accents that create a sense of a cold, lunar freeze.
      ‘Drome’ takes us back to the outer space disco, before ‘Lunabear’ growls over a wonderful rolling bass line. Then the beats drop out for a trip with ‘Voso’, with delayed melodic stabs and though provoking chord changes.
      ‘Lentslide’ and ‘Vacate Fine Nancy’ introduce an almost breakbeat sounding element to the album, still with those perfect chord shifts and atmospheric touches, ending all too soon with the gorgeous off kilter beats of ‘Clutch from a past to State a Present’.
      The whole work has a cohesive, ambient heart that beats gently throughout each track. Melodies and rhythms stack against each other, before melting through the synapses and if that isn’t the definition of acid, ambient, braindance music then I’ll eat my space helmet. A wonderful package that makes you feel good twice; Once for the aural pleasure and second because it’s all for a good cause. This album has put Paranerd, Paul Goguen and his many aliases on my radar and I look forward to listening to ‘Silktrops’ many times, while I hunt down previous releases and look forward to more to come.
