Narcissism comes across as pretty lame whoever you are.

You mean 99.9% of pop, rock, hiphop, metal artists? Many electronic music artists too?

yeah i agree!

video and track is a bit too subtle for me, not sure if there’s a message in here perhaps? would love to know if someone cracks the code as to exactly what this is trying to say. thx

This is what happens when the focus stops being on the music and starts being on the creator. Always focus on the music, not the personality behind it.

The press release doesn't use the pronoun he or she once.

Arca bounces off each of them in different ways, with some adding to her reverie while others help to channel the dark sensuality of her music into some of the most forthright and focussed dance tracks of her career - albeit ones which, in their twisted and dynamic production, remain instantly recognisable as Arca joints.

Arca reaffirms her position as one of the most compelling and innovative producers, sounding stronger than ever on her striking new LP KiCk i.

:cat:

the new track is better than the first track but that ain't saying much. oh well

I think "Time" is pretty alright, but the feel of that track is right up my alley. Couldn't make it through the other one, reminded me too much of some Otto Von Schirach without the intended silliness.

Arca's "Stretch" EPs are really great though.

Never heard this, sounds good. Only Arca stuff I'd heard was Xen and Mutant, and I preferred the former.

First track in this thread is not for me – totally respect artists putting themselves out there as music is a representation of self. Seems like a re-introduction, and that's fine. It's just doesn't do anything for me, and yes, a bit cringe and definitely too on the nose. "Time" and "@@@@@" sound better. But still, I think I'll explore more of the old stuff before I spend any time with this album.

I thought mutant was pretty great. It was pretty much just the sounds of xen perfected.

The end of that nonbinary video sums up identity politics these days...somebody's about to blindly yell in your face with no regard for discourse or understanding lol.

It's not easy to do it all: even genius ginger nuts recruited Chris Cunningham and Weirdcore to make a visual aesthetic to match the audio and it's been some of the most memorable shit eva.

The videos Arca is coming up with are awesome. Even though the devil one felt like HIV on a screen, the colors and execution kept me entranced. All of the mechanical performance art and whatnot really does look wicked and groundbreaking in the "nonbinary" video but the choons--sorry to say--seems to lag behind the window dressing. 

Let's have a listen to the whole thing but 99% sure I'll be wishing for an instrumental.

It's leaked. There's glimpses of goodness. Some of it feels like a pop version of Stretch, Mequetrefe is a personal standout. S/t vocals, Bjork and SOPHIE feature on a few tracks. Overall pretty meh though. The impulse to skip to the next track is strong with this one.

the amount of guest was a red flag for me (I would have been ok with Björk on one track but alas... ) and this time track is really boring, will probably give it a listen, but at this point expectations are low...

Not really understanding the hate in this thread, the album is pretty good. Agreed that "Mequetrefe" is a highlight, as well as the entire run from "Afterwards" through "Rip the Slit."

Music is decent, but the constant “bitch” makes me want to laugh. 
Agree 100% with @xxx comments on the visuals and the “candy”.

I'll listen when it's actually out. Not expecting much, hoping to be pleasantly surprised, but my expectations are low.

Next what id like to see from arca is an homage to Kraftwerk... a concept album with a Kraftwerk-like style of music themed of course around genders. 
but the theme could be about gender and genderless connectors:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gender_of_connectors_and_fasteners

i can already hear it in my head... his voice through a vocoder...

 

FUTURE BIND...

CONNECT STRAIT

GENDERLESS

ENDLESSSSS

...

BITCH!

(in background) Endless...endless... Bitch! ...endless...

everything after stretch is not for me

Manners is his best track, that ending is epic. stretch was my favorite project of 2012. since then, he seem to have degraded .

Time is a good track though.

      hi
      I really like Arca's last album Stretch 2, but now his new Baron Libre EP is quite amazing and its offered freely.
      Anyways, have a listen
       

       
      The way the songs progress is really special imo.
       
      I hope you like it, but god damn, this EP is one of the best thing Ive heard in my life. Yeah maybe its because Ive just heard it, but I find his work totally innovative, perfect production, and a sound of him already quite developped and personnal after only 3 release. Anyways, you be the judge!

      hey guys
      Ive just discovered Nuuro, which is the early project of the now almost famous Arca.
      imo, this is just amazing and definitely a nice addition to any Arca fans

       
      BUT, theres a couple of things under Nuuro that definitely sucks, like most of the vocals songs, they are quite cheesy.
      Arca is definitely a interesting artist and I think he will be really seriously big, his new FKA twigs is just phenomenon produciton wise. He has real unique ideas, I just think he still hasnt found exactly his sweet spot, but damns this guy is promising
      anyways
