You’re so very welcome. Glad you enjoy it!
interesting mix of styles, a wistful, melancholic and spacey/ambient texture, quite an emphasis on the contemplative actually, somewhat unusually for this genre. an excellent example of the type of crossover happening in 2018.
thanks for the introduction to what appears to be quite a significant label! I remember Jefre Cantu-Ledesma from years ago but have to catch up on the rest… very interesting concepts also… oh and also see the Tomiko Sauvage which was recommended to me recently on the “elemental instruments” thread
Taking a break from usual diet of death metal and listening to a lot of old drum and bass, particularly from metalheadz. This was the hot electronic genre back when I was in high school but it doesn’t get much love these days.
one of the best things ever.
wow, I didn’t even realize they were still around, lost track over 20 years. Samples sound great indeed, I must get this.
I bought Within the Realm of A Dying Sun almost when it was new, when I was 14 years old I believe. Was one of my favorite albums for many years. Aion another fave.
One thing I didn’t “get” first time around with the old stuff is how influenced Brendan Perry was by Scott Walker especially the 1960’s albums like “Scott 3”.
Kelly Moran’s new album “Ultraviolet”. Never heard of her before Warp sent a promo mail for her new album. Love it!
Great to here these guys again:
New Panda Bear is pretty great
New album from John Hughes (III) aka Slicker, Hefty Records label boss, etc. as part of a duo. He has apparently has gone down the modular rabbit hole. I remember listening to the first Slicker record in a London record shop in 1999 and it’s cool to hear what he’s up to ~20 years on.
Also Mattheis’s Thin Sections. Bright arpeggiating synth stuff, that occasionally gets the chuggy beats going. Puts me in mind of kosmische stuff (Schulze and the other ex-Tangerine Dream bods around the end of the 70s), though I’ll be honest I never investigated that world much.
This one, along with Would, are great for calm / relaxation. Finding myself returning to them often. Nice (warm, light touch), repetitive, and spare.
I actually wasn’t sure Lisa Gerard was on it because it’s in such a different style. I think I need to listen to it a few more times, but Aion, Into the Labyrinth and Toward the Within will probably remain my favorites
