Best album released in the past decade imo . . .
posted a comment on Helios - Veriditas. 4 months ago
'Even Today' and 'Mulier' are at least a decade old (I downloaded 'Mulier' from Keith's blog in 2003), and have long been my favorite two Helios tracks, amazed that they're finally seeing a proper release

Best album released by Schematic and top 5 or so IDM record of all time
posted a comment on Otto A Totland* - The Lost. 5 months ago
You can hear Otto breathing on the entire effing album (mostly through his nose, it's that crystal clear), which is ridiculously distracting. Place the mic somewhere else guys

I just did a very exhaustive search and don't see any indication from any press release, release notes, label website, announcements, etc etc., that this will ever have a non-digital release. Which is strange! But then Alex has released a few MP3 only ... See full review

major issues with side D for me (manufacturing defects, skipping etc) . . .

posted a comment on Nine Inch Nails - Bad Witch. 7 months ago
Reznor indicated otherwise ... "While Bad Witch was originally set to be an EP, it developed into a full-length album; at 30 minutes in length, it is the band's shortest to date. Reznor initially saw the trio of planned EPs as one long album with three ... See full review

bespoke handmake artwork for each copy ...? $35 is reasonable

Agree, side B is quite a bit better at 33 especially

"Terminal Rust (Down Low Mix)" might be Jesse's best track

One of the better BoC clones out there; he should be paying them royalties, seriously, but the music is not bad at all

Very excited to receive this, the first new material from Rob Holloway in a few years --- simply incredible, 5/5
posted a review of Russell Haswell - 37 Minute Workout. over 4 years ago
I've been wanting to hear Haswell try his hand at "regular" beat-oriented electronic music for many years now ... the results are simply amazing. Still overwhelmingly chaotic but tempered with just enough rhythm to improve on his usual sound.

I have no CLUE how this is only rated 4.03/5 on Discogs ... easily one of the best 12"s ever released by Warp

posted a review of Deerhunter - Carve Your Initials Into The Wall Of The Night. over 9 years ago
Haunting ambient/found-sound sort of deal; nothing like Deerhunter's usual output, and it bears only a passing resemblance to the most ambient Atlas Sound mp3s (from Bradford's blog).
posted a review of Phoenecia - Brownout. over 11 years ago
Criminally underrated! The best album released on Schematic (except for perhaps o9's full-length), with some of the best production I've ever heard; even the album art is just about perfect. A series of fully realized ambient soundscapes (with some ... See full review

posted a review of Sensiva - Giosun. over 12 years ago
Ai Records have wisely snatched up this Russian producer; one of the standout tracks from this album appears on the (extremely good) 2006 Ai compilation. 'Giosun' is simply one of the best electronic albums I've ever heard; the sound is familiar but ... See full review

posted a review of Casino Versus Japan | Freescha - Split EP. over 13 years ago
Possibly Freescha's worst release to date, though that isn't to say the tracks aren't good, but simply that their other releases are of such higher quality. "Dental Fur" is the best of the three, but "Pony Blow" is possibly the worst Freescha track in ... See full review

initially i thought this was just a mediocre BoC clone, but after about 20 listens i began to realize that it's much more ... disarmingly simple, so much so that you don't immediately realize how carefully crafted and subtle it is. very rewarding upon ... See full review
posted a review of Freescha - Volume 1. over 13 years ago
Easily my favorite release by Freescha; I listened to this album every night, last winter. A purity and simplicity that began to slowly go by the wayside, beginning with STCM; "Bulb" is probably their best song, period, and "Smokestack" is unlike any ... See full review
