i love Landings and havent heard the *AR thing, but also recommend Marking Time, which was reissued widely last year (well... as widely as a Richard Skelton release is likely to be reissued)

Quite enjoying the new Ryan Teague album - it sounded incredible in the shop.

Can't seem to find any talk about the new bvdub double cd.. I sounds a small departure from previous works, more vocals and different rhythms.. anyone heard it?

since this is one of the only threads that had a discussion about it i just want to reiterate how awesome *AR is

Was that A Winged Victory For the Sullen on Countryfile, just now?

I could imagine buying SKURA in a moment of weakness thought not fully keen on the idea of buying MP3s.

The new Richard Skelton, Verses Of Birds, is fantastic, very striking and rich but rather dreamy at the same time.

is there any overlap with the Oramics 2xcd thing?
(have been to see the oramics machine in the science museum a couple of times now. but am not entirely convinced by what i've heard of the actual recorded output)

SKURA dvd: is it a case of just putting the disc in your computer and then ripping to another format to play? is the package nice?
― djh, Monday, 2 July 2012 20:46 (1 year ago) Permalink
packaging is fairly nice iirc. dvd is properly tagged mp3 files, just drag and drop to your computer.

v tempting. i don't think i can bring myself to commission one of those one off cd box sets ...
― djh, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 16:46 (1 year ago) Permalink
Pleased with SKURA although I'd probably have preferred finished CDs.
The new album is very good, too.
― djh, Monday, 16 July 2012 20:07 (1 year ago) Permalink
Working my way through SKURA.
Any thoughts on it?

SKURA was fifty quid well spent. Some beautiful stuff on there - though I have to confess I had to copy it all onto CD.

Michael Tanner on his new album:
The Cloisters, Michael reveals, was conceived during a time of deep personal dissatisfaction with the drone/ambient/classical minimalist ‘scene’ – one seemingly populated by “the same 30 blokes, making the same music in Ableton [loop-based music software], more often than not sporting the same beard. It was made under an awareness that I was lumped in with them, and internalising if/how I was really so different. It became an attempt to see if I could retain the style of music I’ve been making for 12 years now, but still try and get out of the box, so to speak.”
Never really thought about the process behind making this music and/or Ableton. Can we name the 30 blokes?
― djh, Tuesday, 6 November 2012 18:38 (1 year ago) Permalink
There's another Skelton album, too, by the way.
― djh, Tuesday, 6 November 2012 18:39 (1 year ago) Permalink
More importantly can we name the beard?
― itt: 'splaining men (ledge), Tuesday, 6 November 2012 19:06 (1 year ago) Permalink
Haven't managed to work out who any of these bearded people might be.

Weird. Would have had Skelton down as popular on here.

I think he is? But I don't ever hear his stuff when it comes out - by a long-standing arrangement, my wife buys it and keeps it until my birthday/Christmas. So probably I'll have something to say about it in January!

I really like the new Olafur Arnalds album, but it is very straightforward in a way that a lot of the stuff in this thread (at least, the stuff I am familiar with) doesn't seem to be.

Must admit I prefer him when he is just tapping away at the keys than we he is doing anything more than this.

ha, i was blown away listening to 'says' the other day and checked out some other pieces...i love the more percussive, effected-out, synth-heavy pieces a lot, but the piano-only ones i heard don't hit me as hard.

Says is awesome, really into the rest of the album too. Great bedtime listening.

I swear, I have never heard of Nils Frahm, and suddenly he is EVERYWHERE this week. Will have to investigate further. I am enjoying Toilet Brushes!
