omg WHAT? an album? more info now please!

CharlieNo4 (Charlie), Thursday, 1 May 2003 07:47 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

it's called "rounds". i haven't heard any of it, so i can't go into much detail! NME and Uncut review it today if you want to read up on it.

weasel diesel (K1l14n), Thursday, 1 May 2003 07:52 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

I've only heard the single 'Rounds' which is pleasant enuff. I read an interview with him where he said that this was his first stab at creating completely stand-alone underivative music, so who knows what it'll sound like. he also said that during recording it he'd been listening mostly to early '90s hip hop - Pete Rock, Diamond D, Extra P etceterah.

i'm intrigued.

Tomorrow in Ireland, Monday over here. Called Rounds. Meant to be better than Pause. Which is going to be hard!

Expect it to be very good indeed; Pause is a fantastic album. He's more organic/acoustic than Manitoba, less frenetic than UIF and less jazz than Start Breaking My Heart, with more emphasis on melody and. The penultimate track on UIF is very Four Tet.

I have no doubt that this will a terrific album and I can't wait.

Excited!

Although I fear I'll have to wait til I get back to the UK, since Sydney record shops have become notorious round our house for their "Goldfrapp who?"-style knowledge.

CharlieNo4 (Charlie), Thursday, 1 May 2003 08:04 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

I'm quite excited about it, too.


Insight, moi?

Had it for a month or so on Promo, and its fantastic, probably the best thing he's done, a progression of what he's done before rather than anything different. Its as good as the Manitoba, in fact those 2 albums will be in my top 50 come the end of the year along with the magic Soulo - Man, the Manipulator and Kopernic - Kopernic

Action Jackson, Thursday, 1 May 2003 10:27 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

Had it a while too. If you like his stuff you'll really fall for this one, it's gorgeous. Better than Manitoba's Up In Flames in my view and that's really going some coz i luv that record, different to Pause but still just as beautiful... clever, clever fella

It's very, very good. So is the new Prefuse 73, while you're spending money.

Looks like I'll be buying the whole concert bill, then (P73, 4Tet, and Manitoba are playing select U.S. cities). (I only have Up in Flames so far.) (And now kicking myself for planning a trip the same weekend of that show.)

jaymc (jaymc), Thursday, 1 May 2003 14:04 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

he's not producing the beth orton album (i spoke to him an hour ago). he did some remixes for her and worked on a b-side and they might extend the collaboration. what you're hearing is pr types hyping more nonexistent marketing angles.

ben sterling (frozen in time), Thursday, 1 May 2003 16:22 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

I interviewed Four Tet recently and he said he *is* producing
the new Beth Orton album. It's right here on my tape, I swear.

Da ve Segal, Thursday, 1 May 2003 19:44 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

New Four Tet album is luuuurvley. Some of the sounds have the same feel as the previous one, which makes me happy- I love the tones and general mood. There's one awful unlistenable track (a la No More Mosquitoes, though I can't remember the name of the new one) and the ending Slow Jam is kinda boring. My Angel Rocks Back and Forth is prime girlfriend-bait-mixtape material, though. Aces overall.

New EP is good. Wing Body Wing is probably one of the better tracks. Kinda sounds like a cross between Pantha Du Prince and Invisible Conga People's 'Cable Dazed'. Glad he's momentarily stepped away from the folk-tronica tag, ugh what a term.

Hijacked from the Burial thread, the sample B1 here

For this sounds amazing, even compared to his 4/4 stuff, it sounds more more kind of at the same time plain and unlike anything else I've heard by four tet. Absolutely lovely, pitty it has to be on a limited, fetish-object release.

heard this remix of a track from Nigel Godrich's new Ultraista project the other day on Gilles' 6music show and I'm putting it here because Kieran has completely smashed it (and makes the original seem pedestrian by comparison). Srsly, this is *awesome*.

I have been binging on Mr Tet lately so I am happy to have some new ones!

I know ILM has generally been down on Mr Tet but god damn there is nothing he can't make sound good w a sparkly remix. I've been on the fence about Ultraista but I'd listen to Mr Tet remixing the sound of the rubbish collectors this morning TBH.

White Chocolate Cheesecake, Wednesday, 27 June 2012 05:35 (five years ago) Permalink

It is really annoying not being able to view/listen to anything with Flash at work.

Psychedelic Space Jellyfish with harps is SUPER DOUBLE PLUS GOOD. I think I've just been so captivated by the video, though, that I'm not really processing the song. I'm not sure about the bass, though. Don't know that wob suits Mr Tet. But who cares, it's all wibbling harps and things.

Ultraista, though. I feel vaguely disappointed with myself that I am utterly failing to be captivated by it. Come on, it's got my name all over it, why is this not total WCC catnip? I don't know if I'm being overly suspicious of something which feels *too* marketed to me, but if a Four Tet remix can't make me fall in love with a song, I don't know that anything will.

White Chocolate Cheesecake, Wednesday, 27 June 2012 19:19 (five years ago) Permalink

So the proper download of Pink has been out for a week or so. He's doing absolutely no marketing for it. Who's listening? Off one (distracted) listen I wasn't sure it hung together like a proper "album" (excuse my old fashioned rockiest ideas), but it was a distracted listen in the midst of house-buying chaos. I'm just whacking out on the iPod so I can play it via the Zeppelin and hear it in space rather than headphones.

Seemed like plenty of bass, to be fair.

Sick Mouthy (Scik Mouthy), Saturday, 25 August 2012 07:33 (four years ago) Permalink

Been listening to this all week, it's fantastic. I had the same 'not a proper album' issue at first too, but I suspect part of that is psychological, given that I know it's a singles comp. If he'd just released this music straight off as a single piece, I'm not sure I'd have given it a second thought.

'Locked' & 'Lions' are the highlights for me so far, really strong opening.

the late great, Wednesday, 8 July 2015 04:18 (two years ago) Permalink

having survived mmml i don't find the beats too light or too polite or whatever. to my ears it's suitably jacking micro house, just rough enough around the edges

i think matt is correct, that the drums are just way too far down in the mix, and i find the vocal / synths to be absurdly loud compared to the beat.

Having been listening to the whole thing, it slots pretty neatly in between Ringer and There Is Love In You, for the most part. Remarkably cohesive in feel, actually - although that might just be because he's so far into an aesthetic now that there's no getting out. Which some no doubt see as boring, but I find what he does right up my street with alarming consistency. Hint towards Morning/Evening in "Gillie Amma I Love You". I'd say this is as good as any of his recent albums.

i missed this new one, adding that to my broken and creaky mental pile.

i'm going back to "morning" at ... 6:00 this morning and what I can't believe I didn't realize about it before was that it's working music, it's meant to be part of the fabric of a life working, a scene of work in the morning, domestic or virtualized. i think of hebden in an airport, doing work on his laptop, bringing a sense of home to his desktop. it sounds pragmatic and intimate to me in the way that the ragas it's obviously based on are, meant to instill a sense of harmony and peace and love in work.
