Aphex Twin classic or Dud?

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

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

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.

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)

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

The domain's WhoIs details are weird (the registrant/tech contact is purported to be someone named Elizabeth Hanks in Clinton, NJ) -- but it's hosted out of the UK and doesn't appear to have changed hands recently.

brimstead, Wednesday, 8 April 2020 18:56 (three months ago) link

Oh, yeah, I saw that. (Apparently his father recently passed, and he dedicated at least one track to him.)

I won’t attempt to parse the exact p.o.v. behind the cluster of URLs in the profile’s “Bio,” but there’s definitely a p.o.v. being expressed.

That stuff seems to have now been removed from the bio. Good, I guess.
