new album is great, the layered oldtime synth drones of 'rifts' filtered w/ classic mego distortion

sreynolds interview

one-oh-trix is right, bit of a pun on a radio station tag iirc from reading an interview. i love this fella's sound. he wrings so much melancholy out of his equipment: 'zones without people', 'russian mind' and 'behind the bank' to name but three. 'where does time go' from his new one ploughs the same furrow but i could listen to this stuff all day.

sonderangerbot, Thursday, 29 July 2010 03:00 (seven years ago) Permalink

thanks for linking that interview. i was initially repulsed by the sound-excess of returnal but it's become my most frequently played album lately. looking forward to hearing rifts. cool to see Mego releasing more broadly-appealing artists like this (and Emeralds)

Palpatean Mists (Lowell N. Behold'n), Thursday, 29 July 2010 03:10 (seven years ago) Permalink

both returnal and rifts are incredible, have been obsessing over them for the majority of this year. i know this sounds lame but BUY THE VINYL. it really does help bring certain textures into focus more so than i remember on the mp3s

tbh i don't understand why he's getting so much hype, but then soundscape stuff doesn't really do it for me. i keep waiting for the beat to drop.

emotional radiohead whatever (Jordan), Thursday, 29 July 2010 20:30 (seven years ago) Permalink

ambient by way of rhythmic overload and interweave = not as many beats? i like the bc-ness of tracks like "computer vision" -- kind of bumping without a drum part ...

good show, too -- both times ive seen him it was heavy but not too long. at the release party for returnal it was a nice blend of that record's noise and rifts-style washed-out sci fi sheen.

uptown churl, Thursday, 29 July 2010 20:45 (seven years ago) Permalink

rifts is outstanding. love the super cascading stuff like "ships without meaning". haven't given the new one enough time yet.

The only track I heard was on a recent Uncut giveaway and it was delicious.
I'm by no means anywhere near au fait with this scene, but when it hits - decent Tim Hecker, Fennesz - anybody else? It's ace.

"pelham island road" recalls pete standing alone, with the repeated melodic figure early on in the track.

basically the same chord progression as "praying" by kesha lol. i like it though. similar aesthetic to garden of delete, but less agro and more whimsical.

Lopatin's preferred format. Unsurprisingly. Also comes with a booklet, the LP doesn't.

I think I said some stuff upthread. Just doesn't seem conceptually interesting or emotionally engaging - the singles, at least. Like I've said before the beautiful thing about Replica and R Plus Seven are that they are brilliant conceptually/intellectually AND the music is utterly original and moving. Garden of Delete was a cool concept but it's not an enjoyable listen for me. This, I just don't know what to make of. Sounds like boring pop music. Definitely not going to ditch him though, and I can't wait to hear the record. I just... it's an awful thing when an artist you love and whose work you find compelling and exciting in ways that are ineffable or very difficult to describe... starts making work that's almost a parody or cliche take on what they've done before...

more like it sounds like NIN. or NIN-adjacent. which is pop adjacent. or pop on the spectrum. sort of

Garden of Delete was a cool concept but it's not an enjoyable listen for me. This, I just don't know what to make of. Sounds like boring pop music.

I'd say Replica and R+7 are 'warmer' album, and Garden of Delete suddenly turned out to be a lot cooler. If that is something akin to what you mean by the music being moving next to conceptual, I can see that. I'm going to have to draw a line at 'sounds like boring pop music' though, and (quietly) echo m bison ;)

lbi's life of limitless european glamour (Le Bateau Ivre), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 07:15 (six days ago) Permalink

it's pop on the spectrum. like "My Girls," or "Ping Pong."

I'd say Replica and R+7 are 'warmer' album, and Garden of Delete suddenly turned out to be a lot cooler. If that is something akin to what you mean by the music being moving next to conceptual, I can see that.

I agree that Replica & R+7 are 'warmer' compared to GOD but that's not what I meant. It's so rare to have a musician that is making progressive, intellectually compelling work that can be mulled over and discussed at length that is also just beautiful music, thesis aside. With those two records Lopatin conveyed some really disturbing stuff about consumerism, technology, and nostalgia where the conceptual underpinnings reinforced the music and vice versa.

flappy bird, Wednesday, 16 May 2018 16:15 (six days ago) Permalink

i'll just echo "homie, what the fuck" cuz i'm not hearing NIN or pop (outside of the use of autotune) in that Black Snow single at all

i'll listen again

flappy bird, Wednesday, 16 May 2018 16:27 (six days ago) Permalink

i mean there are lyrics and a melody, but there's way more there pushing against a pop-sensibility than embracing it. parts of it make my physically uncomfortable.

two cool rock chicks pounding la croix (circa1916), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 16:33 (six days ago) Permalink

or maybe it shouldn't be a embrace/repulse binary, i guess it's fucking with it. but the end result isn't exactly "poppy".

two cool rock chicks pounding la croix (circa1916), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 16:34 (six days ago) Permalink

btw I have nothing against pop or pop on the spectrum or whatever, I just didn't expect to be bored by a new OPN project. because Replica and R+7 are so singular and strange and truly otherworldly. but I will listen again

flappy bird, Wednesday, 16 May 2018 16:37 (six days ago) Permalink

dang i'll have to try with R+7 again. a couple of tracks aside, i found it about as warm and welcoming as Garden of Delete. just couldn't get into it. HUGE fan of Replica, though.

brimstead, Wednesday, 16 May 2018 23:05 (six days ago) Permalink

I’m an opn neophyte, but Garden captures me in a way his earlier stuff doesn’t, with the exception of Ourobourous of course

calstars, Thursday, 17 May 2018 00:07 (five days ago) Permalink

I listened to R+7 the other day for the first time in a while and it hit me in a really different way. A lot of what felt cold and alien initially did feel warmer and more... organic? I can get that.

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Thursday, 17 May 2018 11:04 (five days ago) Permalink

So based on "Black Snow", the new album is going to be less fragmented and more coherent and linearly progressive pieces? If he feels like he's exhausted the deconstruction approach, by all means let him try and fit his compositions in a new context. Doesn't have to be pop music, however I do agree that the single wouldn't be totally out of place in certain current continuums.
