fuck i discovered this album a few weeks ago and am in love with everything about it. can't believe how many shat on the album art at the beginning of this thread... the art is as mindblowing as the music!

 

this may well be my favorite abum of the decade thus far. sorry, had to bump

 

hehe its good but erm.... the first one is a lot better

Apples and oranges to some degree but yes I'd have to concur.

Well, that’s a mind blowing treat incoming for you then!

 

Funny, I just dig this out earlier today to listen to on the last CD player I’ll ever buy.

I still cannot believe how incredible this album is even after half a decade. Almost brings a tear to the eye, cutting/arranging like i've never heard before. Even amongst all that gory complexity, the interludes Mutant Nights, Dead To Morrow, Do You Understand, and Jealousy are absolutely mindblowing and touching at the same time. Beautiful, over-saturated memories

I recently discovered this album and absolutely fell in love with it. The first album is good too, and I guess I can sorta see why it seems to be most peoples preference but Persistence of Vision really does it for me. I feel like... it's harder to discern how it was made, I feel like the further back I go back into his discography, the more obvious it is that the music is made from cut up samples. Not that that's a bad thing, I think it's pretty obvious on PoV, it's just that it feels far more seamless. I also like how much darker it is... I saw another comment here describing the artwork as 80s/early 90s cyber-horror, and I think that describes the music really well too.

Been re-listening to VHS Head.

 

Appreciating the track, Do You Understand?

 

I guess he sourced the vocal sample from:

https://www.instagram.com/p/0mcAlTIjlT/

 

Sounds like he pushed it through CDP distort interpolate.

Oh interesting. I always assumed it was Alan Watts.

Yes, maybe it goes without saying, but it's very BoC - The Devil Is In The Details.

Yah, I love his sample aesthetic and especially how he seems to have gotten more masterful at it with each release.  Like picking the meat off a transfinite corpse of feels cask-aged in obsolete technology, then smearing, stretching, layering, and otherwise mangling samples to fuck for a rhythm track, ala death dimension and siege express. Just hook it to my veins.

 

Also, the opening track on that short "mix my glink up" mixe where he chops up tears for fears, autechre, and who knows what else is a fucking beast.

I love sounds with context. Even if it's completely devoid of reference, you know it came from something else. like a musical collage.

Yeah if you check in on his Twitter occasionally it seems like he's got something in the works. I cant even imagine how much work must go into his music.

I think he’s a bricklayer too so must be hard to find the time.
