trying not to take the bait on that rating

what sort of maniac reads a numerical rating on a record review

Good piece. (I think the album deserves a 10, if any album does...)

damn this paul nagle song "the enchanted garden" sounds really close to whimsical mid-period aphex stuff like "cuckoo", "donkey rhubard", "fingerbib", etc, just without the beats (fast forward to around 5:10)

nice

yeah, definitely not too far off from a lot of that aphex influenced 95-05 stuff

God that first Jega album is such a winner. Bangers and beauties.

Magnetic Fields by Jean-Michel Jarre

I doubt RDJ is much of a fan which makes this funnier tbh

frogbs, Monday, 9 December 2019 04:55 (one month ago) link

Do you think it's intentional or just a random coincidence? Seems pretty coincidental to me, besides having a closeup of the artist's face on a white background (which is hardly uncommon), the covers aren't that similar: Jarre shows 1/2 of a face, Aphex has 3/4; Jarre is shot from a straight angle and shows only the face + a bit of neck, Aphex is shot from slightly above and shows some shoulder as well; Jarre includes the artist name and album title, Aphex doesn't.

I don't know if it's intentional or not though I'd imagine he definitely knows who JMJ is

Seems pretty coincidental to me, besides having a closeup of the artist's face on a white background (which is hardly uncommon)

for instrumental electronic music I think it's pretty uncommon! though obviously RDJ is pretty willing to do it

alright listen you little shits

Magnetic Fields

It's Les chants magnétiques, not Les champs magnétiques, except of course 'chants' and 'champs' are homophones in French.

I agree with the others that Afx's pose probably isn't a callback but I like the speculation.

Brilliant as ever. Visuals no slouch either. https://youtu.be/961uG4Ixg_Y

WTF @ 2/3 of Smojphace (which I just listened to for the first time and which will probably be the last thing I ever hear now that my eardrums have been thoroughly scoured)

I don't 'do' memes but if I did this would be a great candidate for the 'Lou Reed: (records Metal Machine Music); RDJ: Hold my beer.' treatment.

since it's my thread, i am gonna vouch for Ovuca - Onclements, which is great and I've been listening to it all week (and it's on Rephlex so semi-on topic)

Ludo, Monday, 13 January 2020 20:50 (one week ago) link

it's amazing how consistently good these dj(+live?) sets are xxpost

lukas, Monday, 13 January 2020 21:09 (one week ago) link

I think those Smojphace tracks are supposed to be fed through a visualiser thingy
