    What depresses me about it is that TO ME it's the sound of indulging in weed paranoia

    Although obvs that isn't true for others. At the same time I get the feeling some of the guys making this were extremely stoned and probably suffering unacknowledged depression. Nothing wrong with that ofc, just a zone I don't like to dwell in too much.

    All the futuristic imagery that ppl cite for this stuff is from the 1980s.

    not when you're blind they don't. i had to go through my screen readers dictionary and make sure that whenever I typed ": D" like this it would say open mouthed smile. the machines are still mechanistic, you are just seduced by them, I am by necessity not.

    what do you lot reckon about this guy? i dont know if hes been brought up here before. his tunes feel steeped in similar sonics to the stuff mentioned here, although the drums tend to flex around and disappear down different tunnels rather than plod along. there are a few records out now, the more recent ones have been more straightforward linear smash hits style but ive been excited by all of them.






    especially on these ones, with the metallic delay that seeps in and out of the tracks, you have these hi hats like those amplified recordings of ants chirping that trail in and out, and these low frequency rushes like sonification of solar wind. you get pulled between the scale of geomagnetic storms and insects talking to eachother, beetles stridulating.

    recommend us some stuff like this please cheers
