Amon Tobin - Fear in a Handful of Dust


Recommended Posts

I "quite" enjoyed the ISAM live thing I caught at Brixton Academy. But I distinctly remember enjoying LORN more who was on first, then also Tobin's DJ set afterwards in a small club around the corner.  The ISAM hype didn't really live up to expectations after seeing it all on youtube multiple times before.

 

Keen to hear this release though.

Regardless of the BPMs.

That opening track is beautiful!

it is indeed.

 

Thread needs renaming plz mods.

 

I guess "an ambitious album release schedule for the year ahead" didn't fit with how Ninja wants to do things, unless Nomark is a sub

because of how long this has been coming and the weight of expectation, I'm not really inclined to listen to it piecemeal. would rather wait til it's out in full.

If the rest of the album is like the opening track I understand why ninja might not want to release it. It's good but it's not a decade of waiting for a new Tobin album good.

Nomark is gonna be Amon Tobin's new label (I guess kinda like when Mr. Paradinas split from Rephlex to form Planet Mu)

On a Hilltop Sat the Moon is the inaugural release on Amon Tobin’s 
newly minted label

he's uhh... always had shitty covers.

 

lol, you have to admit this. all the early classics have some awful art. thankfully it's little reflection on the music.

whaat, the early/mid stuff has some of the best art of that period.  especially adventures in foam through permutation.  way more understated and unique compared to similar stuff in the 90s.  see my photo/post on pg2 of this thread, the physical sleeve has a shiny block print (ala what autechre did with draft 7.30) which looks awesome in person

      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.
