New PLAID album - incoming

Recommended Posts

Yep, it's truly a out of this world concept album. The theme throughout is totally alien. I find it crazy that very few people share this love.

yeye for real Spokes is great. hella underrated.

Neat! I've only owned and listened to Not for 3's but I loved it, so this is great news.

 

Any other releases I should pay attention to?

Well people seem to mention Spokes a lot...Never heard that one but I'll give it a go.

Rest Proof Clockwork is really good, but to me the Plaid magic really worked on Scintilli. Reachy Prints is awesome as well, 100% catchy tunes.

 

The problem with Plaid is that it's so catchy you tend to forget their production and writing skills...I really need to listen to their work with a more attentive ear !

yeah that is the nail on the head, it's so accesible that people dismiss it. If you listen it's really complex stuff and so well written. That's the skill to die for for me is to make really skillful stuff sound easy and catchy. Kinda like Stevie Wonder. It's pop but when you listen or try and play along, it's actually pretty clever stuff. *states obvious*

 

Every release has gold scattered on them but some early stuff kinda sounds cheesy because there is some sampling going on. It's still good stuff.

Spokes is the most cohesive I think and gold from start to finish.

Reachy Prints on heavy rotation again, I think it's creeping to second favourite album. The way Wallet meanders around a static beat is so good, how do you come up with that over that beat? but yet it sounds so accessible if you don't think about what's happening. I hope there is something soon. pldpls.

This is very very exciting, Reachy Prints was my favorite album of theirs which says alot about it, and I love Clock ALOT!

 

But.....what's up with the vinyl price it's like $35 after shipping? ouch!

Whats up with these 2-4 minute tracks? Are they cheaper to make or something?

Shorter tracks are harder to make actually. Anyone can jam a track out for 10mins and call it an opus. Making a consice idea come across as a full track in a short amount of time takes skill. Unless they are all filler ideas not made into tracks? but I doubt it.

wouldn't mind if their tracks we're closer to the 5 min mark - eye robot has a sweet jam that kinda just stops, wish that and a few others we're longer, but sometimes when played live they get that treatment.

The last album has 1-2 tracks in the 5 mins or over range, this new one is one of the shortest LPs they've ever done..loving the Bee tho!

 

updated the webpage, cool - http://dig.thediggingremedy.com/

ok so I clicked around on that plaid website on their logo and automatically my computer started downloading "clock drone acid", 73.2mb AIF file.

 

Not sure if everyone knew you could get that track.

they are stems for clock, so you can remix it if you wish.

 

although, they did say there was a new treat on there but my puter does not like that site so not looked yet.

ohh! now I'm getting the Detroit techno vibes. Sounds like Plaid doing their best John Carpenter interpretation.

 

It also sounds like these tracks will sound better in context. Not so much a collection of tunes as it is a complete concept.
