a pretty amazing list of some great underground artists.
astonishing collection. weird as hell while remaining beautiful and broken. for me, it all comes together like a genre I didn’t know we had because its contributors have been disparate till now.
A couple recent additions:
King Krule/Zoo Kid:
Been really loving the new Kanye album:
And an oldie but goldie:
after adding it to my rotation of “listen to while jogging” albums, I’m coming around to TLOP. I’m a big fan of ye and usually take to his new albums pretty quickly, but this one has definitely taken me some time.
I guess dealing with the back of the envelope misogyny etc has been something that’s always been a part of the Kanye deal, but it grated me a bit more on this work. Could be that I’ve gotten older, or it’s become more flagrant/self-aware (probably a combination there of). That and it lacked a lot of the immediate appeal of his previous works… but there’s something to be said for subtlety, of course.
Not sure where it’ll ultimately end up for me, but there are some golden tracks/moments to be sure. Really deserves the context of the album listen.
I fell into that album again, that’s the album that got me into loving modular and stuff…
