Such a good album, I really got into Scintilli and this new one doesn't disappoint. I got the Japanese version and I think the bonus track 'Away' works much better as an album closer compared to liverpool st, in fact, it's staggering to think Away isn't on the standard album!!!  Nafovanny is possibly an early favourite, but it changes the more I listen to it.

Bravo Plaid!

Not getting the Liverpool St negativity at all, been in love with that track for some time now (since they used it to close the mix of unreleased tracks they did for that midnight snacks podcast).

 

Liverpool St. isn't terrible, but it really sounds like some type of Disney song or something in my opinion, which is why I can't get into it. OH, Nafovanny, Matin Lunaire, and Tether are my favorites on this record.

all the hate on liverpool st is staggering, i think it just shows the breadth of their palette and their ear for composition

ending the album with a piano flourish was a nice touch i felt, but Away goes hard as hell so im glad it was the bonus track

Gawd, the Amazon cloud is fast - Bleep zipped 1.4 GB of wav/flac/mp3 in 2 seconds and shoved it through my modem at 49 megabit.

 

Favorite:  Matin Lunaire - has the most cohesion and fullness of all the tracks IMO, with Hawkmoth a close second

 

Least favorite:  Ropen

 

The guys really put their hearts into this one!

initially i found liverpool st more abrupt than anything else, certainly don't hate it, quite the contrary, just crave more i guess! solid album!

Just finished downloading and syncing to my iPod to play on the way to work this morning. Only heard Tether so far on Warp's homepage, but I'll trust you guys' praise on it.

I actually told him the reaction on the forum was really high, think he already knew..New website apparently is about to go up, possibly new Tshirts.

Looking forward to the Live show in July, he said the visulas are really sweet this tour..

coolio

 

might have to organize seeing them live. It's great that after so many releases they can hook new fans in, imo that shows how good they are. Just got the Induction comp from Bleep, not sure how Plaid have always past me by.....

Have to agree that RP is better than Scintilli overall. Really digging Hawkmoth and Slam ATM, but perhaps the other trax will grow on me as well after a few more listens.

ahhhh I see I see.

 

on a related note. what does the title Reachy Prints even mean?

the other day when I asked JB Hi-Fi if they had the vinyl (the answer was no because no one had ordered it in for instore ordering and they were unable to do it from the store computers/store level... or something) I was required to say out loud "Reachy Prints", and I realised how utterly awkward it was to say out loud. what does it mean?? is it referring to plaid design prints or something?

Maybe it's related to the artwork idk

 

The artwork for Reachy Prints is created in collaboration with installation artist Eric Studer. On the artwork, he says: “The photograph represents a personal reflection after a radical experience. Two elements complement one another: The X-Ray image of my head holds the moment when my life got separated into a ‘before’ and an ‘after’. The visibility through the transparent X-Ray on the other hand is an outlook into my familiar surrounding – it represents continuance. The merging of the two images implies a new starting point in life. It serves as memento since it is hard to recall the incident. Altogether the image clarifies that the past is irreversible. And that an answer to ‘why’ is not relevant any longer.”

on a related note. what does the title Reachy Prints even mean?

 

 

“We wondered if consciousness is a memory and what role memories have in the imaginative process . We saw prints as physical memories and an equivalence between printing and memory function. They often share the aim of 'reproducing' a subject as accurately as possible. Experience told us that a perfect reproduction is difficult, if not impossible. An attraction to explore this fallibility and a curiosity about the potential inaccuracies and artefacts gave us the album title, 'Reachy Prints'.

 

The track ‘Wallet’ is inspired by the items found in wallets, the money, receipts, business cards, photos etc and the symbolism of wallets as a safe place to store items we value and want to remember. Most items in a wallet have already been digitised and perhaps physical wallets/purses will become obsolete.”
