Tycho - Weather 12 July, 2019

I suddenly got this vision of a tycho subforum...

Holy fuck is that new song bad.  

It sounds like a band ripping off some Tycho elements and making some super wack Chillout EDM music.

After this I just can't support the guy anymore.  Not that it matters, he's got about 600,000 festival goers in my place.

No, not considering Tycho (or anyone for that matter) for another Featured Artist. In fact, as I'm planning the other parts of the site, I'm not sure we'll need the Featured Artist subforums as much or in the current format they are - there might be more discreet ways of offering fans of particular artists we feature here. Time will tell.

I honestly listen to all four releases - I don't have one particular favourite over the other, but I guess if I had to rank them it would be :

Dive > Epoch > Awake > Past is Prologue. Rory aka Nitemoves drumming on Awake is just too damn good.

That’s a really interesting ranking! Not saying your opinion is “wrong” at all. Why rank PiP last? Just curious. I assume due to its unabashed BoC rip-off stylings?

I keep trying Epoch but it’s just so so dull. He’s a technical wiz but man it bums me out how disinterested I am in his direction since dive.

No; I like a lot of tracks on PiP, but for me I think Tycho really found his sound starting with Dive, and it has evolved and grown since then, with Epoch being his (IMO) second best release after Dive.

Both Epoch and Awake I initially didn't 'instalike' like I did with Dive, but they both grew on me as I listened to them more and more, especially Awake. I think after I 'got' Awake, when Epoch came out I 'understood' better what to listen for and appreciate, if that makes sense.

Awake sounded like he had resigned himself from attempting mimickry, so I appreciated the redirected approach. I remember being excited when the singles were being released, since it seemed he had found a distinct sound for himself. Epoch was similar enough that when I hear it, I know it's a Tycho track and IIRC, was nominated for a Grammy (that Flume won, whatev).

These new tracks seem like a departure, though. I like his stuff without vocals.

Completely agree with your ranking.

Picture the scene. Middle-Class suburbia. Sunday lunchtime....and turns to her. "Ah, it's the new Tycho album."

I literally heard Tycho playing inside a Starbucks at Disneyland, no jokes.

I think this is just him further experimenting... I don't foresee a day where he doesn't do instrumental tracks anymore.

And, there is an instrumental version of Pink + Blue... although I think he should have listed the tracks as "Pink + Blue (Vocal version)" and "Pink + Blue" - an opposite of how most artists who do do vocal tracks explicitly list their instrumental versions.

I wonder if he's tried singing himself for any tracks?
