fucking recks on, so sinister, so awesome

oh this is hard. i think i'm throwing a vote to "1 1 is" but there are at least 5 others on here i really love, although there isn't a single bad track on here tbr. this one has such a nice balance between the beat programming and the deep melodies. it's more concise than elseq or nts and really nicely mastered, none of the harsh his that elseq grinds through.

I don't know wtf song is which with these guys.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Friday, 4 May 2018 03:56 (five months ago) Permalink

i don't know any of the titles either, i have to look in itunes to figure out which one ppl are talking about

you bet, nancy (map), Friday, 4 May 2018 03:59 (five months ago) Permalink

I only remember recks on because I put it on a mixtape one year. And spl9 because it was released before the album and sounds like a flying saucer attack.

spl9 is soooo hard

Blade lore sss

Probably a more important poll would be what image you see when you look at the Exai album cover, little jogging monkey or happy clown face?

Definitely "irlite (get 0)"

yeah i was thinking about voting for that one. it's very prog!

autechre shreds

My headphones broken. But autechre sounds good

Jatevee tho

cover mystery was debunked by Sean on watmm - it's writing "e x a i" in scrambly munted pixels. Right now I am wearing a t shirt that says "Ae t-" in the same manner.

You rule

Blade lores pinching the drum up tone wise is good

done and dusted (Ross), Friday, 4 May 2018 06:00 (five months ago) Permalink

this is the only one since oversteps that i don't really dig. i don't know why, seems like they either were trying for something that didn't quite click, or they weren't actually trying for something and i'm just wrong to always be looking for them to be trying for something. i think someone on the original exai thread said it was unusually fatiguing to listen to, sonically, and that does ring true.

J otm

done and dusted (Ross), Friday, 4 May 2018 06:19 (five months ago) Permalink

that was me, i don't know if it's the mastering or what, though map says that's really nicely done. it's not something i noticed with elseq or nts. but yeah the whole thing is yet to click with me. in irlite (0) at 5:50 there's this great little melody (i know, we don't come to ae for melody anymore) that builds for 10 seconds, stutters a bit then more or less disappears and i always think 'waaah come back!'

spl9 is a fuckin banger though.

lana del boy (ledge), Friday, 4 May 2018 06:27 (five months ago) Permalink

was hard choosing between jatavee, Flep, and recks on. In the end recks on with its sinewy bass and menacing mood won.

Octo otm

Tosser full of secrets (Ross), Friday, 4 May 2018 07:00 (five months ago) Permalink

the only two I really know as standouts are bladelores and irlite

brand new universal harvester (dog latin), Friday, 4 May 2018 07:13 (five months ago) Permalink

The ending phase of recks on is some of the most aurally frightening music I can think of. I get a huge physical presence from it, and that presence is definitely not friendly.

startled macropod (MatthewK), Friday, 4 May 2018 07:28 (five months ago) Permalink

I quite like the fact Nodezsh is basically a deconstructed version of Rae Sremmurd's 'No Type'. spl9 bangs hard!

brand new universal harvester (dog latin), Friday, 4 May 2018 08:38 (five months ago) Permalink

Voted Nodezsh. And jogging monkey.

only thing that really irritates me is that CD skip effect on "1 1 is". really thought something was wrong with my copy until I listened to it on Youtube

frogbs, Friday, 4 May 2018 13:54 (five months ago) Permalink

Should be a thread for songs that convince you there’s a malfunction. See also stereolab cobra - wherein a subtle way it sounds like a car with hydraulics n bass is driving by. Had to check myself that it wasn’t the song

Tosser full of secrets (Ross), Friday, 4 May 2018 14:01 (five months ago) Permalink

the worst are the ones with a faint police siren in the background

frogbs, Friday, 4 May 2018 14:01 (five months ago) Permalink

Lol yeah

Tosser full of secrets (Ross), Friday, 4 May 2018 14:03 (five months ago) Permalink

btw listening to parts of this and Amber (due to the two polls on ILM now), they're really not so different

frogbs, Friday, 4 May 2018 14:05 (five months ago) Permalink

the only two I really know as standouts are bladelores and irlite

I had a listen to this (for what was probably only the third time) the other day and yeah it's between these two for me.

can't unsee little jogging monkey

orifex, Friday, 4 May 2018 18:41 (five months ago) Permalink

Voted bladelordes without no Clue of what it sounded like. Eris would be proud. Turns out it was dope

That’s All Folks... (Ross), Friday, 4 May 2018 18:44 (five months ago) Permalink

Flep is seriously underrated

umm, cloudline
but spl9 bangs

Flep is seriously underrated

i'm a little surprised. i thought it would be like 4 votes for bladelores and then tumbleweeds

you bet, nancy (map), Thursday, 17 May 2018 00:14 (five months ago) Permalink

hype thread. this one was a nail biter

braunld (Lowell N. Behold'n), Thursday, 17 May 2018 18:42 (five months ago) Permalink

surprised bladelores didn't do better. But fuck yeah recks on!

octobeard, Friday, 18 May 2018 00:54 (five months ago) Permalink

I love how (keyosc) was titled to fuck with the WATMM fanboys. (and yes I guess I am one too)

startled macropod (MatthewK), Friday, 18 May 2018 02:37 (five months ago) Permalink

two months pass...

'prac-f' into 'jatevee C' is such a great transition. There's so much to love on this record, though (well, if you're an Autechre fan, that is - I still expect anyone who hasn't got into Autechre's approach to be completely alienated by it)
