i like this album

max, Monday, 18 February 2013 20:48 (four years ago) Permalink

I like it too. Nothing as good as The Fall but I think the rest will grow in time.

Kitchen Person, Monday, 18 February 2013 20:51 (four years ago) Permalink

Need to hear this - how does it compare to other Robin Hannibal projects like Parallel Dance Ensemble/Quadron/etc?

etc, Monday, 18 February 2013 22:52 (four years ago) Permalink

do you guys have promos or is this available for us plebs to hear somewhere?

monotony, Tuesday, 19 February 2013 00:10 (four years ago) Permalink

It's been out there since early January, maybe even earlier than that. I was surprised the other day to find out it's not out until March.

Kitchen Person, Tuesday, 19 February 2013 00:14 (four years ago) Permalink

Wow, completely missed that leak. Will check it later tonight.

oh stfu this singer is fantastic

flopson, Thursday, 28 February 2013 01:01 (four years ago) Permalink

easily by far the best thing about them

flopson, Thursday, 28 February 2013 01:02 (four years ago) Permalink

what is wrong with the singer???

just sayin, Thursday, 28 February 2013 07:21 (four years ago) Permalink

nothing's especially bad though that kind of milquetoast dude voice never really connects with me, but he's just way inferior to the quadron girl

lex pretend, Thursday, 28 February 2013 10:21 (four years ago) Permalink

i love the hemsworth remix of open. guy's voice is great. the barest trace.

plax (ico), Thursday, 28 February 2013 13:55 (four years ago) Permalink

also the stilllife remix - https://soundcloud.com/djstilllife/rhye-open-dj-still-life-re-1

dude did that awesome tropicaaliyah ep a few years back. this is worth a spin or two.

ha weird...yeah i had no idea about this band except they were on the new releases section of spotify this morning and i instantly assumed it was a sade-alike woman

in a chef-driven ambulance (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Tuesday, 5 March 2013 23:17 (four years ago) Permalink

yeah i thought it was a woman too

max, Tuesday, 5 March 2013 23:24 (four years ago) Permalink

All last year, they were keeping their identities secret. When they disclosed them a few months ago that Robin Hannibal was behind it, I went "Duh! OF COURSE he's behind this!" I love it, naturally.

Dude can't do any wrong, imo.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 5 March 2013 23:25 (four years ago) Permalink

I'll take this opportunity again to recommend:

Owusu & Hannibal
Non+
Parallel Dance Ensemble
Quadron
Boom Clap Bachelors

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 5 March 2013 23:26 (four years ago) Permalink

Also, his solo album.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 5 March 2013 23:26 (four years ago) Permalink

are those his other groups?

in a chef-driven ambulance (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 6 March 2013 00:09 (four years ago) Permalink

Yeah.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 6 March 2013 00:11 (four years ago) Permalink

Living with Owusu and Hannibal was great
Coco can do no wrong
wouldn't have discovered Boom Clap Bachelors if not for the Kendrick sample but that was also rewarding if a little more inaccessible.

What about the other two?

tsrobodo, Wednesday, 6 March 2013 00:16 (four years ago) Permalink

He has a few albums under the name Milosh, I used to use both those albums to fall asleep to back in my college days.

I really like his voice.

^^this is hilarious in retrospect "that kind of milquetoast dude voice" that fools everyone into thinking it's a woman, get so sick of that

in a chef-driven ambulance (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 6 March 2013 00:21 (four years ago) Permalink

Milosh is the singer in Rhye. Robin Hannibal is the producer/musician.

What about the other two?

Parallel Dance Ensemble is Robin and singer named Coco. Quadron is Robin and singer named Coco. The Cocos are not the same. Parallel Dance Ensemble is a little bit more club-friendly, early electro-funk inspired. Quadron is a little bit more removed, headphone music.

Non+ is probably my least favorite of his projects, but I don't not like it. It's just kind of ponderous electronics.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 6 March 2013 00:22 (four years ago) Permalink

Had no idea the Rhye vocalist was Milosh. Vocals are improved almost beyond recognition from his III album.

Ah. That seems unnecessarily confusing but thanks for clarifying.
Either way this Coco can do no wrong.

hmmm electro funk I can do but Non+ lost me at ponderous.

tsrobodo, Wednesday, 6 March 2013 00:34 (four years ago) Permalink

I was totally misremembering Non+ (confusing them with something else, I guess?). They're fonkay.

Here's some PDE as well:

Hannibal loves him some heavy basslines. Thanks, think I'll give both a listen.

The other Coco (Coco Solid, from PDE) can't really do any wrong either - one of her other bands, Badd Energy, have an album coming out on Flying Nun this month, and her solo stuff covers pretty wide ground ... I like the vaguely Propaganda vibes to something like "Architecture":

What song is "Last Dance" based on? It's bugging me.

contains best mbv review of all time

r|t|c, Monday, 25 March 2013 12:57 (four years ago) Permalink

Agreed but tbh for a sec if it felt like mbv sounds I'd consider sourcing a better form of lubricant. I guess amyl might make the whole exercise a bit "To Here Knows When" though.

My favourite piece of that article was the simplicity of "They will realize that you are as calculated as you are."

Tim F, Monday, 25 March 2013 13:49 (four years ago) Permalink

i mean that is the basic primal fear that runs through me at all times

plax (ico), Monday, 25 March 2013 14:03 (four years ago) Permalink

i have definitely played a few tracks from mbv during a session

君ちゃん (clouds), Monday, 25 March 2013 14:15 (four years ago) Permalink

i fundamentally disagree with the pretext of this blog post because music is a handy stylistic cue and the more overtly it signifies the more explicitly it directs. which is convenient.

i can't really ever imagine experiencing mbv again like i did before encountering richjuz's observation (and for this i am very grateful in truth)

even the loveless tracklisting on its own now just looks like snatches of muffled dialogue during

plus the selfexplanatory 'is this and yes'

this album is gorgeous.

was this last years 'kindness' ?

i.e. major label funding, lots of mystery/hype/promo, beautiful photography = no sales.
