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 (eight 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 (eight 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

emotional radiohead whatever (Jordan), Thursday, 29 July 2010 20:30 (eight 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.

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

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

Went to that show last night. To me its like the idm version of The Wall. The feelings I got from it were Games go to the 90's with some classic OPN elements thrown in. There were moments for me that called back to Enigma, heard some moments of MBV guitars, Chris de Burgh-y beats. Also, a lot of those ballads were very Bon Iver-ish jams. I dug it tough, look forward to hearing the recorded versions. The Prurient inflating garbage bag stuff was a highlight.

on first listen this is a v. good album and maybe the most emotionally resonant thing he's done since Replica.

a friend of mine went to the show last night too and he hated it. said Lopatin has diluted basically everything that made his work resonant and interesting, also that he'd never seen a drummer play so much and add so little. FWIW

Haven’t seen the show but the album is legit great. Don’t get why people want a sequel to their favorite OPN album. His entire thing is Moving On.

He’s still on fire.

Yeah moments of maybe getting perilously close to pomposity or overblowness but ... idk, it ruled. it was like a replicant Peter Gabriel or something. way too pretty at times (purposefully of course) but backgrounded by a sort of deep space infinite coldness

People who have seen the Myriad live show: Is it music from Age Of? Mix of new and old? Something else? I'm reviewing it, so would love to know just a tiny bit of what to expect.

Frederik B, Sunday, 27 May 2018 09:53 (six months ago) Permalink

from what I've heard it's the whole new album + old music as an encore

ufo, Sunday, 27 May 2018 11:15 (six months ago) Permalink

myriad is exactly as ufo said — reordered/extended age of, two older tunes as an encore.

the show as a presentation was not really engaging, i bet soundboard recording sounds fantastic.

i tried sequencing age of the way it was played live, and i think it flows better:

prologue:
age of

ecco:
still stuff
raycats

harvest:
toys 2
babylon
manifold

excess:
we'll take it
the station
myriad.industries (in lieu of live track titled love in the time of lexapro)

bondage:
warning
same
black snow
last known image

epilogue:
never ending happening (sequencing the bill fay original works perfectly)

Was expecting someone more aloof and dark but he was super stoked that I recognized him and we talked about the OPN record. Said Daniel’s got a legit vision for things and he was impressed by it all.

So weird to stumble into that tonight.

two cool rock chicks pounding la croix (circa1916), Monday, 28 May 2018 06:43 (six months ago) Permalink

This was cool, but probably not that fit for the festival setting. Grizzly Bear sounded loud and pretty good in the distance throughout the whole set, and a lot of the audience had clearly just wandered in and was VERY confused by it all. But I kinda love the album and the whole concept of it, and Black Snow / Babylon sounds great live.

Frederik B, Thursday, 31 May 2018 23:28 (six months ago) Permalink

maybe i'm just not in the right mindset but i didn't enjoy Age Of at all. i'll listen again. But i never really figured out GoD either. it's a bummer because i was totally on board with everything through R Plus Seven

obviously DLC (Karl Malone), Saturday, 2 June 2018 17:05 (six months ago) Permalink

There's some similarities with GoD, but this new album is a lot more chill. I think I like it better because I'm not getting Skrillex vibes off any of the songs. Still prefer R+7 and Good Time soundtrack though.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Sunday, 3 June 2018 03:14 (six months ago) Permalink

I keep forgetting about the Good Time soundtrack, which I never bought and never listened to outside of what's in the movie, which I loved. Don't know why - maybe I was tired of him after GOD, or at least not as eager to preorder the LP or even ever get around to listening to the full soundtrack. I'm about to listen to Age Of for the first time with a totally open & optimistic mind.

flappy bird, Sunday, 3 June 2018 03:37 (six months ago) Permalink

I know I sound like a broken record, but that soundtrack is really great, in part because it avoids some of the more annoying aspects of GoD and has a very consistent vibe.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Sunday, 3 June 2018 03:46 (six months ago) Permalink

Really happy to be proven wrong. Age Of is awesome. Much better than GOD, he's doing something new, not a retread but a finely executed synthesis of many things he's done on previous albums, all while continuing to expand his sonic palette, with more acoustic instruments than ever. Too early to say "not as good as Replica, not as good as R+7." It might be better.

flappy bird, Sunday, 3 June 2018 04:52 (six months ago) Permalink

I'm not ready to go that far, but it is really good

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Sunday, 3 June 2018 05:04 (six months ago) Permalink

ufo, Tuesday, 5 June 2018 06:03 (six months ago) Permalink

haven't heard the album yet but saw him play what I assume was all stuff from it at primavera. he's definitely been getting funnier and there were absurd moments that made me lol. part of me wonders if he'll ever top the simple perfection of the nobody here rainbow road video. but I like how much drama and intensity there is to this stuff, how ugly some of it is. he is still developing his ear for bathos and he moves through very stark changes in tone surprisingly smoothly and organically, gestures undermining what's gone before (visuals helped with this too: grandiose organ alongside some pictures of sinks &c.). felt like a bracing dip in a plunge pool

"Black Snow" has become one of my favorite songs of the year. I love that this album has caused so many about-faces!

flappy bird, Tuesday, 5 June 2018 22:21 (six months ago) Permalink

really dig the new one... beautiful moments throughout, it flows well, and it's cohesive. never really got on with GoD, or R Plus 7, though this feels roughly like a blend between the two, with add'l timbres and generally honed in a bit. it does seem front-loaded, but that impression is only from 3-4 cursory listens

braunld (Lowell N. Behold'n), Saturday, 16 June 2018 22:24 (five months ago) Permalink

It does get a bit drifty towards the end. I enjoy it but with this kind of thing it takes a long time for me to get my head round it, though this one is more obviously listener-friendly than GoD (which I have ended up liking quite a lot)

obnoxious pun (ultros ultros-ghali), Sunday, 17 June 2018 09:59 (five months ago) Permalink

there are a couple moments on this album that remind me of country pop. There are also several tracks that sound extremely similar to Frank Zappa's Civilization Phase III, an electronic album that was waaaayy ahead of its time.

Lucky duck. he's toured Europe way more than he's toured North America (not including the NIN/Soundgarden shows). I've only seen him twice: in July 2010 and March 2016. first was great, second was ehh... bummed I missed out on the Replica & R Plus Seven shows. Would love to see the Myriad show but afaik he's not touring that much right?
