every electronic musician faces two paths to hell: modular or vocals

Lol I was at that Sydney gig. 

 

Weird thing happened with that concert... I never received my ticket in the post and realised when i got to Sydney that they were physical mail out and wasn't sent a digital copy? Anyway, i went to the opera house that afternoon and spoke to them about it and they ended up making me some really shitty ticket by hand writing stuff on a piece of cardboard. They assured me that it'd be fine. And it was.

 

After i saw them the first time i used the ticket again and watched it a second time, but went down right to the front , seemingly where this video was taken from. 

 

I remember just waving it in front of the security's face (who were doing a terrible job btw) and walked through, so my friends (who had no tickets at all) just followed me in. 

 

Ended up with great seats somehow ( I assume everyone was just sitting wherever they wanted)

isam is the one where he slides his fingers all over that hankeninen slidey finger board thing and makes slidey sounds right?

 

Slides it right up the old bumbum.

damn the first 7 tracks of supermodified should be donated to the library of congress for being "culturally, historically and aesthetically significant"

That's quite slow BuPpuMs - Wonder if the automatic algo caught some of the tracks at half speed

 

Very slow... =/

 

Kind of short for an 8 year hiatus, but I imagine that's just ninjatune marketing going to milk the market with EPs and Singles that just belong on the album to begin with.  :cisfor:

Might be wrong, but from that screenshot it looks like he might be releasing the album on his own label "Nomark"

Good catch, I didn't notice that - Interesting if that's the case? I haven't seen word of it on ninja, which I guess I'd expect for an april release from one of their biggest artists, no?

 

It makes me even more curious about the album. Especially if those slow BPMs are legit. As much as I enjoyed Dark Jovian I really hope this isn't an ambient album... but its looking possible.

Ah yeah, that makes sense! lol I don't know why I immediately jumped to the conclusion that means the album is out Friday.  :facepalm:

 

I'm really curious what this is going to sound like. Deep down I'm hoping those BPMs posted earlier were wrong but if the first track is coming out on v day that makes me think it's going to be Tobin slowdance style...

      The EP they put out earlier this year was fucking amazing. Here it is for those who haven't heard it:

      The World As We Know It is an electronic album made in the absence of instruments. At the same time, it is a guitar/vocal album and entirely human. And so we have something of an anomaly.

      Amon first recorded these songs during an isolated period in the woods of northern California. It was an exploratory process, much to do with learning about harmony and (relatively) traditional songwriting. A personal exorcism of sorts, he externalised an array of experiences and organised them into his own words.

      At the time of writing what was to become Figueroa, Tobin had no particular ambitions for the work. Describing his singing voice as “a vague idea of what a voice might sound like,” the tracks remained personal as they sat in state for almost a decade after they were first scratched out in a cabin in the woods.

      Eventually Amon sent the material to the legendary producer Sylvia Massy (Tool, Prince, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Johnny Cash, Annie Mac) hoping she might find someone who could perform the material. Sylvia was thrilled by the songs she heard. Rather than delegate them to polished musicians, she got on the next plane to LA and booked a session at the famous Capital Studios at Capitol Records in Hollywood for Amon to record the songs properly under her guidance. The result is The World As We Know It.

      Is Figueroa psych-rock? Electronic folk? How is there guitar with no guitarist? We have no idea. It’s surprising and confounding. Sometimes it’s better not to ask questions and just listen to the music.

      Haven't listened to Cujo in years but I think I remember really liking it. Not into this being an exclusive club release though.
      https://nomarkrecords.bandcamp.com/the-nomark-club
      The first Cujo Release in 23 years, Nine Bars Back, is available exclusively for Nomark Club members. Out 20 Dec 2019.
      "Cujo was my first ever project back in the mid 90's. I thought it would be a nice way to celebrate the launch of nomark club to go full circle with the first cujo release in 23 years. there will be two tracks available only through the club specifically for those hardcore fans who might be nostalgic for the jazz tones cujo was known for"

      Apparently there is a new Amon Tobin album in the works!
       
      As per his webpage "Album recording in progress so no tours scheduled. Watch this space for one off appearances but don't hold your breath"

      PS does this qualify for a thread under new and upcoming releases or does there need to be an official announcement?
       
       
      reed teh rules I know
       
       
      I'm interested to see what he does after Isam, as that was a pretty big departure from his signature sound at least in my opinion.
