Been coming back to this one a lot lately. At first listen I thought it sounded too much like their first (also awesome) album, but damn can those fluidly simple guitar lines get stuck in your head.

RULES RULES.

I always listen to:

Rules
Cómo me Quieres
Maria También
Cómo te Quiero

Last one has a really touching video. I wonder why they put so much analog hiss onto the digital distrib., I don't need that. But hey. Target audience probably wants this.

Dub remix album coming out

I love this band but was pretty disappointed with that remix album. I was hoping they would have added more classic sounding dub elements (horns, vocal samples, melodica, etc.) to the tracks, instead of just looping a drum beat with a guitar riff delayed-out over it. the remixes weren't really re-created in an original way, and sounded way too basic compared to the original versions.

i really dig the remix album.  the way i see it, dub typically has very few elements in the mix.. they stuck to the dub principals and made those elements sound really good.  I get what you mean that the flavor isnt radically different than the main album, but imo the subtle difference makes for a very different mood.  try putting it on inna more spaced out mindset and it might click

^ I'm in between these opinions. I like that they stuck with the original instrumentation and tracks (like classic 70s dub) and didn't just throw in dub reggae elements (although the Scientist bonus dubs did a decent job of this) but on the flipside the more nuanced approach made for some pretty tame remixes depending on the source material (Mary Always and A La Sala), the better dubs of tracks already leaning toward spacey guitar lines and slower basslines (The Red Book, Hasta El Cielo). Kind of reminds me of the Mad Professor vs Massive Attack remix album.

      More meditative atmospheric ambience with glitchy percussion overlays from Data Rebel, recommended for staring into space. Check out the rest of Howe's discography, too, while you're at it.

      My album this week is a reissue of the ambient classic from 2001. It's been going for silly prices on Discogs these last few years. However, it's just been re-issued on vinyl and digitals.

      "An almost forgotten but bona fide Ambient classic floats up on a 20th anniversary edition with the legendary Glasgow-based Ampoule label, newly remastered with a bonus cut for added immersion - highly recommended to fans of BoC, Balil, Porter Ricks.
      Still every bit as woozy and gouched-out as we remember, Pub’s gingerly wistful debut album ‘Do You Ever Regret Pantomime?’ is a cult classc for those that know; a sublime example of a peculiar sound at its sensitive best. Back in 2001 it saw lots of rotation at our auld shop Pelicanneck and has since become prized for its effervescent melodies and light-touch drum programming that acknowledged and parsed influence from then-contemporary hip hop and post-rock as much as the prevailing trends of ambient and minimal techno. 
      A plangent, elusive sense of nostalgia that arguably prefigures modes of hauntology beautifully percolates the album, dwelling on a melancholy state of mind that, with hindsight, speaks to a timeless sort of wistfulness and tentative tension surrounding the early years of the millennium - which now seems incredibly distant and naive in the midst of 2020’s shitstorm. The tracks are perhaps detectably burred with a gently rolling accent and crepuscular glow that we’d attribute to Pub’s Scottish provenance and which clearly resonates with BoC, so it’s maybe best to play this album after theirs, when its vaporised textures and thizzing melodic tendrils will best work their exceedingly subtle yet palpable magic."
