is it just me or does he artifically speed up his bass playing here?
probably, a lot of his acoustic drums sound sped up to me.

that too - either his chops just improved to the point where he could actually play the way he sounds on record or he learned a better way to pull this off. because on Feed Me it literally just sounds like the tape is sped up.

there are great moments on the new one, though the tracks frequently build to the point of excess, w/showy displays of editing prowess/haste. First half of DRAX 2 (on youtube) is pretty nice. wish he built tracks more spare, or exercised more restraint on this. welcome release though

There are at least four killer tracks on this (4001, Unreal Square, Drax 2, Dark Steering), and the rest are listenable and may grow on me. Pretty good hit rate for a Squarepusher album.

nice interview here

basically agreed with most of what he's saying but I find it a little hard to believe he wants us to take everything he's done so seriously

just listened to Music is One Rotted Note for the first time in years. I remember not liking it much before - expected something more like Hard Normal Daddy - but holy cow this album is brilliant. It's amazing how good he can be when he just tries to sit down and play instead of seeing how fast he can loop an Amen break. Naturally, he didn't make another album like it.

I remember the reaction when it came out, "now he's gone too far" etc.

I listened to it twice and found it really boring, but I don't really like free form jazz.

I dunno, give it more of a chance. It's really great.

Music is Rotted... has been my favourite for *years*. Thanks to this thread though getting into other stuff.
