What?


Exactly. You know what I called you: Redundant, cliche, something your idols cringe at, etc.

[quote=psychicSnow] Right, "Aaron Funk". Not unfairly known as The poor man's Aphex Twin. Some of the least compositionally interesting, derivative, and gimmicky music to have been burdened with the inane moniker "idm". What mischievous creation will he ... See full review

Punk immediacy, southern-tinged rock w/ drive-in '50s film lyrics. You can hear this album's feel in music to this day. RIP Roky!

Ice-cold synths over beats ala early-Night Slugs-morphed-into-current-Planet-Mu. Not surprising to see Kuedo, in some capacity, on this Planet Mu full-length debut. Sleeper record: TIP!

"Twentythree" is a hidden gem, and is among the best ambient albums in the genre.
posted a comment on Machinedrum* - Vapor City. about 1 year ago
"Vapor City" is Machinedrum's follow up to the highly touted Planet Mu release, "Room(s)." To that end, the only sin of "Vapor City" is that it followed "Room(s)," and wasn't an aesthetic copy, when released on Ninja Tune. Machinedrum didn't completely ... See full review

The soundtrack to multiple Adam Curtis films, Curtis put this once maligned piece in his documentaries as emotive, transitional motions to full effect. The two are so intrinsically linked in my mind, now, it's hard to think of either separately. Would ... See full review

On originally seeing a photo of Darren Cunningham, I thought, "Looks like a footballer." So, it wasn't shocking to find that Cunningham had played for West Brom until injuries ended his playing career. Cunningham's music is very unique. The sounds he's ... See full review

I have a lot of respect for this release. I don't want people to take this the wrong way, but I'm really surprised they didn't release this on one LP to keep down entrance cost. Of course it shouldn't shock anyone that flippers are out enmasse. Anyways, ... See full review

Seen quality records in the past few years. This is a piece of art from HP. I was expecting quality, but words become cliche to express this pressing. As of this post, copies still available on HP's website.

I swear I heard either the record store owner or saw it online, but cannot find it. I've amended my original comment.

Third Man Records released this specifically as a "secret release" to record stores. Many stores possibly did not even buy them outright or did not buy as many as they might have if they knew what it was. Too, I know that distributors received "The ... See full review

Perhaps there's reason for no "reviews" of Dominick Fernow's Prurient project before this one. The behemoth project encapsulates an odyssey through some of the most brutal music one could conceive. Fernow has said in interviews that Prurient offers no ... See full review

I pre-ordered on August 9th. I've never received a vinyl, nor any reply to emails from Olde English Spelling Bee. At this point I'd like a little information as there are so many conflicting pieces of information.

You're posting on a website that destroys the idea of "elusiveness," man. But, hate to know how you're feeling now that it is being repressed. Maybe I can get a copy, now, and actually be able to support Warp and Stinson's heirs thru my purchase, and not ... See full review

Unfortunately Burial's a big example of having "fans" that know better than the artist, and truly they aren't fans of Burial so much as they like "Untrue." If Bevan doesn't release exactly what they envision (another "Untrue"), then they trash him (along ... See full review

To take the soundtrack for "Akira" and come out w/ "Capsule's Pride (Bikes)" was pure guts. Bwana did what a lot wished they could have done. It's the albums the times demanded: No nostalgia or bullshit, simply innovation.

Dominick Fernow. A summation of Vatican Shadow is, perhaps, William Butler Yeats' "The Second Coming." If you are a fan, then I don't have to tell you what to get: You already have it. However, I am listening to FACT Mix 556; blown away. W/ every release ... See full review

If a red 1994 Honda Accord blaring jungle smashed into a gallery showcasing 19th Century pastoral paintings, and somewhere in there a computer existed, then you might get a glimpse to Lee Gamble's music. It's really, really good stuff.

The man himself told me there was a repress in the works, but wasn't sure when it would be out. He also said not to pay the prices people are putting up for these EPs on Discogs.
