A massive thank you, Imago, for putting in the effort to get this off the ground.

ShariVari, Thursday, 23 April 2020 15:50 (one month ago) link

yuhhhh

methinks dababy doth bop shit too much (m bison), Thursday, 23 April 2020 15:54 (one month ago) link

Yeah, cheers LJ.

The Corbynite Maneuver (Tom D.), Thursday, 23 April 2020 15:57 (one month ago) link

Whoo hoo! I see my possibly unlicensed collage was left out, prudently

El Tomboto, Thursday, 23 April 2020 16:04 (one month ago) link

Yay!

Maresn3st, Thursday, 23 April 2020 16:08 (one month ago) link

Wonderful! Thank you! :D Looking forward to a start to finish listen later.

tangenttangent, Thursday, 23 April 2020 16:14 (one month ago) link

exciting!

thank you for assembling this

(ilxmail me to receive a free copy of “zero shin own: a criminals song”)

El Tomboto, Thursday, 23 April 2020 16:52 (one month ago) link

No need for that :)

Quite a lot of fresh talent as well as the old guard in force on this one. Sequencing was as much a thrill as a challenge!

imago, Thursday, 23 April 2020 17:00 (one month ago) link

It's working so far, though I'm kinda disappointed esby's track doesn't have lyrics.

The Corbynite Maneuver (Tom D.), Thursday, 23 April 2020 17:17 (one month ago) link

Really stoked to hear this.

Being cheap is expensive (snoball), Thursday, 23 April 2020 18:16 (one month ago) link

It's another winner from the ILX kids.

The Corbynite Maneuver (Tom D.), Thursday, 23 April 2020 19:02 (one month ago) link

Excellent work all!

Some favourites -

lumen - Bernie Beats The Virus! (this sounds amazing, bit embarrassed to have my amateur cut-up soundscape thing next to it tbh!)
Tombot - Stay Out Of The Hospital Dub
Nowhereians - Suzanne Explained The Virus To Me

Wuhan!! Got You All in Check (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Thursday, 23 April 2020 21:06 (one month ago) link

Final track is creepily awesome but I must admit I thought it had finished and then it started up again.

The Corbynite Maneuver (Tom D.), Thursday, 23 April 2020 21:18 (one month ago) link

That last section is actually El Tomboto's super-secret bonus track, grafted onto the end of mine.

Maresn3st, Thursday, 23 April 2020 22:11 (one month ago) link

Right, I thought it was a bit of a curveball ending!

The Corbynite Maneuver (Tom D.), Thursday, 23 April 2020 22:30 (one month ago) link

i listened to all these earlier.. it was O_o as fuck. this record is awesome. I loved it. i loved the momus-y bedroom opuses and the plunderphonics chops, loved the apocalypse jams, and, oh? what a treat, an appearance by Dear Leader's beautiful unadulterated voice smack dab in the middle. loved every second. a couple favs were tangent's, blue weather ghosts, and AIXTC's <-- fr this was a legit banger. Sweet comp! 19/10

lumen (esby), Thursday, 23 April 2020 22:51 (one month ago) link

Thanks to everyone involved! Some good stuff on here

paolo, Friday, 24 April 2020 08:07 (one month ago) link

19/10 seems fair.

Tib, Friday, 24 April 2020 10:37 (one month ago) link

Yes, great work, everyone.

ShariVari, Friday, 24 April 2020 10:42 (one month ago) link

Giving this a proper listen, sounding great so far, thanks for curating LJ!

Maresn3st, Friday, 24 April 2020 10:50 (one month ago) link

Esby, are you a fan of The Church. Cause damn, that could be some c/1984 outtake, brilliant!

Maresn3st, Friday, 24 April 2020 11:06 (one month ago) link

Great ! Thanks !
Haven't listened to it all yet but very good so far (irl lol listening to "A Gift From Heaven" !)

AlXTC from Paris, Friday, 24 April 2020 12:51 (one month ago) link

Loved listening to this, great work everyone. Especially like all the nice vocals, I found a lot of the singing very soothing for my soul.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Friday, 24 April 2020 13:37 (one month ago) link

(irl lol listening to "A Gift From Heaven" !)

Yeah my wife and I just had a good laugh listening to that

Exciting to be featured alongside so much weird wonderful music. Think Humaniora is my favorite at the moment, but great stuff all around, feels like a really effective snapshot of the current moment. Thanks for doing this imago!

Vaguely Threatening CAPTCHAs, Friday, 24 April 2020 17:12 (one month ago) link

No problem, and receiving your own at the last minute, reminiscent of Grandaddy at their best (and Of Montreal in the bridge) was a delightful surprise! Plus it meant that two of us had done bird songs...

(Would you believe that Humaniora is the first song tt has ever made? Ever? And entirely unassisted?)

imago, Friday, 24 April 2020 17:16 (one month ago) link

Yeah Humaniora’s is also one of my favourites for now. It reminds me a little of early Grimes !

AlXTC from Paris, Friday, 24 April 2020 17:50 (one month ago) link

She's got a great voice.

The Corbynite Maneuver (Tom D.), Friday, 24 April 2020 17:58 (one month ago) link

It is a really strong compilation album that is very professionally put together by each artist (and well-sequenced). 19/10! Atm I'm particularly enjoying Vaguely Threatening CAPTCHAs' very poignant, hazy melodies, esby's sick kraut-shoegaze opus, Nasty, Brutish and Short's psychedelic Death in June-y jam, and m bison's dark Miami synthpop. I'm also very partial to imago's Wire-esque songwriting. But honestly, it all sounds great to me, even things that genre-wise wouldn't normally reach me.

Thank you for the nice comments! Ironically our Grimes compilation contribution was not good haha.

tangenttangent, Friday, 24 April 2020 21:31 (one month ago) link

Cheers for putting this together, LJ. Just starting to listen to it all now...

The Rampaging Goats of Llandudno (Nasty, Brutish & Short), Friday, 24 April 2020 21:59 (one month ago) link

ive had a difficult time explaining what my electronic music is, and "dark miami synthpop" is v good

methinks dababy doth bop shit too much (m bison), Friday, 24 April 2020 22:02 (one month ago) link

Ha! I think I like "psychedelic Death in June-y jam" too, but I need to investigate in Death in June first to be sure.

The Rampaging Goats of Llandudno (Nasty, Brutish & Short), Friday, 24 April 2020 22:19 (one month ago) link

Like the bassline to Tombot's tune

The Rampaging Goats of Llandudno (Nasty, Brutish & Short), Friday, 24 April 2020 22:49 (one month ago) link

Actually, I like a lot of this compilation

The Rampaging Goats of Llandudno (Nasty, Brutish & Short), Friday, 24 April 2020 23:15 (one month ago) link

Really digging the Lumen track. Ecstatic vibes.

Thanks for putting it all together imago!

29 facepalms, Friday, 24 April 2020 23:43 (one month ago) link

LJ deserves significant kudos for wrangling this together. I promise to try and listen to the whole thing tomorrow.

El Tomboto, Saturday, 25 April 2020 03:05 (one month ago) link

really liking Lumen's motorik-to-infinity!

Elvis Telecom, Saturday, 25 April 2020 03:48 (one month ago) link

I’m really liking this. So much of it feels cinematic, and not just because I’ve been cooped up all this time, I promise.

El Tomboto, Saturday, 25 April 2020 04:37 (one month ago) link

Indifference Curves sets off my Blue Nile alarm.

Johnny Fever, Saturday, 25 April 2020 04:46 (one month ago) link

Like the bassline to Tombot's tune


Thank you! Self-deprecating attempt at humor redacted.

El Tomboto, Saturday, 25 April 2020 04:58 (one month ago) link

There is talk of a bonus EP for those who missed the boat, btw (or those with more to give...)

imago, Saturday, 25 April 2020 12:11 (one month ago) link

Just submitted one for the bonus EP. Listening to this now and wow, these songs are amazing and I’m not sure mine will measure up in quality. Also, holy shit @ lumen’s!

epistantophus, Saturday, 25 April 2020 23:26 (one month ago) link

thank you for loving esby :)

lumen (esby), Sunday, 26 April 2020 00:36 (one month ago) link

We are officially accepting submissions from stragglers (and repeat offenders) for a follow-up EP...

imago, Wednesday, 6 May 2020 10:06 (four weeks ago) link

I've only just listened to this for the first time and wow it's quality, some choice cuts and an amazing diversity and range, as ever.

Mar3snest let me know when your neo-classical ambient album is pick of the week at Boomkat :)

Just listening to it, great stuff so far. I was hoping this whole lockdown situation would finally give me some time to record but it really hasn't worked out that way at all...

Siegbran, Wednesday, 6 May 2020 14:44 (four weeks ago) link

What's the deadline for the special edition EP?

Angry Question Time Man's Flute Club Band (Tom D.), Wednesday, 6 May 2020 14:49 (four weeks ago) link

monday after next?

imago, Wednesday, 6 May 2020 16:54 (four weeks ago) link

cough ep cough

El Tomboto, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 17:04 (two weeks ago) link

i'm taking next week off - hopefully things will move then! been a bit busy recently, plus only you and epistantophus (x2) have submitted anything so far...

imago, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 17:07 (two weeks ago) link

lol split 7” I guess

epistantophus, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 22:49 (two weeks ago) link

I'm sure I'll be able to come up with something.

Is Lou Reed a Good Singer? (Tom D.), Tuesday, 19 May 2020 22:52 (two weeks ago) link

imago - would you have any interest in uploading the ILX aphex twin covers compilation to that bandcamp? it seems like a more stable location for it than my personal soundcloud, which is where it lives right now

na (NA), Wednesday, 20 May 2020 16:26 (two weeks ago) link

email me the WAVs and I'll give it a go! :)

imago, Wednesday, 20 May 2020 16:28 (two weeks ago) link

I could chuck another one of mine in your direction if you want

The Rampaging Goats of Llandudno (Nasty, Brutish & Short), Wednesday, 20 May 2020 21:00 (two weeks ago) link

you all have not very long (day or two idk) if you want to join the bonus EP fun

imago, Wednesday, 27 May 2020 14:39 (one week ago) link

He means NOW y’all

El Tomboto, Saturday, 30 May 2020 03:08 (six days ago) link

There will be more of these, but for now I present, the WEST DAKOTA EP

https://ilxor.bandcamp.com/album/west-dakota-ep

imago, Sunday, 31 May 2020 15:24 (five days ago) link

Hooray!

El Tomboto, Sunday, 31 May 2020 15:37 (five days ago) link

I left it too late.

Is Lou Reed a Good Singer? (Tom D.), Sunday, 31 May 2020 15:48 (five days ago) link

There will be more!

imago, Sunday, 31 May 2020 15:51 (five days ago) link

Like, if 5 of you give me stuff by next weekend I'll probably put it out as another EP, or something

imago, Sunday, 31 May 2020 16:41 (five days ago) link

Thanks for putting this together, Imago.

ShariVari, Monday, 1 June 2020 11:25 (four days ago) link

These are great! Especially love SV's beautiful, opaque electronica.

Maresn3st, Monday, 1 June 2020 11:56 (four days ago) link

Yes, great work all round.
