"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 3 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

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).

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 Casino Versus Japan | Freescha - Split EP. over 12 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 12 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
