Amon Tobin - Fear in a Handful of Dust

Recommended Posts

I found this album so boring I was unable to finish it. That is all.

Sounds fine. Back in the 90s when I pulled out any of this music people reacted to it like it was pointless noise from another planet, so I'm glad to see he is not taking it easy. I'll figure out how much I like it after a few more listens

The latest issue of Electronic Sound magazine has an interview with him, and describes it as a new kind of musique concrete where he tries to focus on one type of sound production rather than a dance record of various ideas.

I was wondering if I was missing some sort of concept behind the album. I'll have to listen to it again with this in mind.

Just trotskied in to say that I'm quite digging this album, his composition (songcraft?) powers that were sorely lax on isam are back in full effect imo.  It's a refreshing palette of timbres he's working with too - one of the things I loved about his post-Supermodifed run is that he had by then established a fully trademarkable my-fucking-sound yet continued to unfurl and evolve it in new and interesting directions.  This feels like such an excursion but into a parallel Tobin universe.

Also how is it that no one has yet shoppe'd ye olde cover album with various peekers-out from behind the trees in the background, like some wildlings or creepy corporate meme guy?

For the record Foley Room is a top notch AT album; isam, not so much

I'm a year late, but I agree. Foley Room has some of his greatest tunes, and ISAM I might've been too harsh on first listen, but a bit too messy for me. Kitty Cat is a bop tho

The latest Ghostcards EP made in collaboration with Thijs from Noisia if fucking brilliant - and so was Fear in a Handful of Dust and Long Stories.

Is that ghosstcards ep the one that sounds like it was recorded through rotary speakers? That was all right.
