'Systems/Layers' is an ultimate winter album for me

A new Jacaszek always has potential! Thanks for the link.

I certainly wouldn't have, but hey. (Le Bateau Ivre), Friday, 18 November 2011 23:48 (six years ago) Permalink

Ah, surprised I'd not heard of him before:

A Winged Victory For The Sullen play Manchester, Glasgow and London in January:

London tickets here:

Happy to see that Sleepingdog are supporting as I missed them at Cafe Oto this week.

Their record is worth mentioning in this thread:

In the same vein as A Winged Victory, the Christina Vantzou album is worth a listen on Spotify. She's the other half of The Dead Texan btw in case the name's not familiar.

can someone give me guidance on these Sylvain Chauveau albums (all on Type)? i have "The Black Book of Capitalism" already, it kills, just want to know what else is really good vs. skippable

right now i could get:

- S
- Nuage
- Singular Forms (Sometimes Repeated)

??? thanks

all(?) the cds are in the boomkat winter sale btw (which might be why you're asking). lots of other Type bargains too.

koogs, Tuesday, 3 January 2012 21:27 (six years ago) Permalink

actually, boomkat has samples (more samples if you click on the mp3 version)

koogs, Tuesday, 3 January 2012 21:28 (six years ago) Permalink

Syvain Chauveau-related: I recommend the Deathprod-mixed On album.

djh, Tuesday, 3 January 2012 21:59 (six years ago) Permalink

On is great yes.

As for Sylvain Chauveau, I think you should get Nuage and/or S. And if you dare also try and find 'Down to the Bone: An Acoustic Tribute to Depeche Mode', which is fantastic. Cover album of DM tracks with Sylvain singing. Hauntingly beautiful

yup! exactly why i asked. i got "Black Book of Capitalism" last winter sale. i usually try to get 5-6 Type things each year. got the other On album last year. waited on this one... i thought it'd be discounted this year... sure enough! yay boomkat

ilxor, Friday, 6 January 2012 05:19 (six years ago) Permalink

still lots to explore, i haven't checked out the Zelienople, North Sea, Xela, or a bunch of others yet.... those any good?

ilxor, Friday, 6 January 2012 05:20 (six years ago) Permalink

Oh man, you should get Xela's 'For Frosty Mornings And Summer Nights'! Warm bubbly electronica, the last great album in its genre as far as I'm concerned.

I certainly wouldn't have, but hey. (Le Bateau Ivre), Friday, 6 January 2012 12:17 (six years ago) Permalink

Totally recommend Zelienople's last album, Give It Up. Really good ambient rock along the lines of late Talk Talk, Bark Psychosis or Dean Roberts/Autistic Daughters.

awesome, thanks guys!

Got the Richard Skelton SKURA box (the DVD edition) for my birthday, so now I have everything (I was missing maybe 6 CDs before). Have been listening to it a lot; it's all great, of course.

Do you *really* need more than Landings?

(That isn't meant to sound as polemical as it does.)

djh, Sunday, 8 January 2012 19:15 (six years ago) Permalink

I dug out his Wolf Notes LP, as *AR this weekend and loved it. Quite a different feel to Landings, mostly due to the vocals:

Super Receptor (Barnaby, Hardly), Monday, 9 January 2012 08:52 (six years ago) Permalink

Landings and Wolf Notes are probably the best, I agree.

toby, Tuesday, 10 January 2012 13:05 (six years ago) Permalink

I'd like Wolf Notes more if it didn't have singing (or had a different singer).

djh, Tuesday, 10 January 2012 17:32 (six years ago) Permalink

Is SKURA a good use of fifty quid?

djh, Wednesday, 11 January 2012 21:03 (six years ago) Permalink

i love Landings and havent heard the *AR thing, but also recommend Marking Time, which was reissued widely last year (well... as widely as a Richard Skelton release is likely to be reissued)

Quite enjoying the new Ryan Teague album - it sounded incredible in the shop.

djh, Monday, 12 March 2012 21:25 (five years ago) Permalink

three weeks pass...

Can't seem to find any talk about the new bvdub double cd.. I sounds a small departure from previous works, more vocals and different rhythms.. anyone heard it?

mmmm, Friday, 6 April 2012 15:11 (five years ago) Permalink

djh, Friday, 6 April 2012 19:21 (five years ago) Permalink

since this is one of the only threads that had a discussion about it i just want to reiterate how awesome *AR is

Lamp, Tuesday, 10 April 2012 01:01 (five years ago) Permalink

Can't stand the voice on *AR.

djh, Tuesday, 10 April 2012 21:10 (five years ago) Permalink

yeah i can see that but she doesnt bother me

new record 'griis' on low point is p rad btw

Was that A Winged Victory For the Sullen on Countryfile, just now?

djh, Sunday, 29 April 2012 17:45 (five years ago) Permalink

I could imagine buying SKURA in a moment of weakness thought not fully keen on the idea of buying MP3s.

The new Richard Skelton, Verses Of Birds, is fantastic, very striking and rich but rather dreamy at the same time.

boxedjoy, Thursday, 21 June 2012 11:07 (five years ago) Permalink

enjoying this new daphne oram collection:

take the claude bolling (get bent), Monday, 25 June 2012 00:46 (five years ago) Permalink

is there any overlap with the Oramics 2xcd thing?

(have been to see the oramics machine in the science museum a couple of times now. but am not entirely convinced by what i've heard of the actual recorded output)

koogs, Monday, 25 June 2012 11:37 (five years ago) Permalink

SKURA dvd: is it a case of just putting the disc in your computer and then ripping to another format to play? is the package nice?

djh, Monday, 2 July 2012 20:46 (five years ago) Permalink

packaging is fairly nice iirc. dvd is properly tagged mp3 files, just drag and drop to your computer.

toby, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 11:48 (five years ago) Permalink

v tempting. i don't think i can bring myself to commission one of those one off cd box sets ...

djh, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 16:46 (five years ago) Permalink

Pleased with SKURA although I'd probably have preferred finished CDs.

The new album is very good, too.

djh, Monday, 16 July 2012 20:07 (five years ago) Permalink

Working my way through SKURA.

Any thoughts on it?

djh, Wednesday, 18 July 2012 19:00 (five years ago) Permalink

A cracker - and the literal embodiment of this thread -

Terabytes of FLACS of screaming (Call the Cops), Sunday, 29 July 2012 19:47 (five years ago) Permalink

SKURA was fifty quid well spent. Some beautiful stuff on there - though I have to confess I had to copy it all onto CD.

Michael Tanner on his new album:

The Cloisters, Michael reveals, was conceived during a time of deep personal dissatisfaction with the drone/ambient/classical minimalist ‘scene’ – one seemingly populated by “the same 30 blokes, making the same music in Ableton [loop-based music software], more often than not sporting the same beard. It was made under an awareness that I was lumped in with them, and internalising if/how I was really so different. It became an attempt to see if I could retain the style of music I’ve been making for 12 years now, but still try and get out of the box, so to speak.”

Never really thought about the process behind making this music and/or Ableton. Can we name the 30 blokes?

djh, Tuesday, 6 November 2012 18:38 (five years ago) Permalink

There's another Skelton album, too, by the way.

djh, Tuesday, 6 November 2012 18:39 (five years ago) Permalink

More importantly can we name the beard?

itt: 'splaining men (ledge), Tuesday, 6 November 2012 19:06 (five years ago) Permalink

Haven't managed to work out who any of these bearded people might be.
