    It's interesting... I can't pinpoint exactly one "revelatory moment", but this definitely was something special. Over the course of listening I went from being intrigued right off the bat with "Archangel" while being uncertain if a whole album of similar sounding material would hold my interest... to being pretty hooked by the end. I'm still not sure if I went from not getting it to "getting it", but I'm definitely very intrigued and willing to listen again to this, and more by Burial and others. The repetitive elements of this type of music used to seem boring to me, but after listening to a longform work like this for the first time in a while, those same elements are actually quite hypnotizing. I'm also really entranced by the soulful vocal samples. I'll try to write some more coherent thoughts when I'm not so tired... but I'm very glad I stayed up to give this a chance.

    Can confirm, not soulless robot... at least not yet.
     
  3. UbuWeb is hosting a massive collection of electronic and electroacoustic songs from 1937-2001.
    This is from a 62 CD set called "The History of Electroacoustic Music" that was floating around as a torrent, reputedly curated by a Brazilian student. It's sketchy. The torrent vanished and the collection has long been unavailable.

    It's a clearly flawed selection: there's few women and almost no one working outside of the Western tradition (where are the Japanese? Chinese? etc.). However, as an effort, it's admirable and contains a ton of great stuff.

    Take it with a grain of salt, or perhaps use it as a provocation to curate a more intelligent, inclusive, and comprehensive selection.

    HI GUYS.

    New Low Jack album is bloody great. With Andy Stott out in a couple of weeks, Modern Love has had a hell of a start to the year.

    I'll have to grab that, I remember not being into his releases on L.I.E.S. but I've also changed a lot since then

    Gotta grab that The Field album. Listening to Vynehall for the second time rn and it's great. Listened to Ash Koosha the other morning and was into it. Anyone listen to the Amnesia Scanner EP or Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith album?

    AS Crust is one of the best songs of the year. Hope you dig that EP. I had it on the other night when I got stoned with my girlfriend and she got so scared I had to change the music lol.

    Yeah, the KAS album is pretty cool. The last track really stuck with me but I've had a thing for lengthier tracks that build and evolve lately.

    I edited my post because I thought I couldn't find KAS and then it turned out I was spelling her name wrong...lengthy tracks are absolutely my bag. I'll let you know my thoughts on both!

    I remember listening to the Amnesia Scanner release from 2015, think Tiny Mix Tapes turned me onto it
