Apparently, Rob Swire gave an interview to Q magazine recently revealing who the artists are. I've searched for it high and low but can't seem to find it, so I won't post it as 'news'.
Apparently one of the collabs is with The Prodigy, another is with a high profile female artist who is big in the states (take your pick), and the big rumour is (and take this with a big grain of salt) is that In Flames will be on the album. And yes, THAT In Flames
Digging: Hyperdub - Hyperdub 10.4
Song is decent enough
Tbh that track is pretty terrible. I've caught about half a dozen of the tracks that are scheduled to be on the album; a couple of them actually sound pretty decent. That is, if you ignore the fact that this band released Hold Your Colour
I'm taking it from that statement that you didn't like Hold Your Colour, or have I misinterpreted?
No, I liked Hold Your Colour, as did a lot of people who then in turn hated In Silico. Some of the tracks on this album are even more far removed than before; for instance there's a bonafide house track on this album
Right then, this sounds like one of those albums that I'll probably get out of curiosity and nothing more.
Most of the tracks can be found on youtube, they did a gig awhile back demoing the new stuff. Quality isn't fantastic and the MC's all over the tracks, but it could be worth a look if you're interested
I have download restrictions, listening to myspace music alone slaughters my limit enough for me to know youtube is a no go. Oh well, when I get a better one I'll give them a good listen.
God damn, what happened to this band?
Idk, guess they thought they were ahead of the curve
lol pendulum. hold your colour was terrible at best, i don't even know how to describe this.
Hold Your Colour was good in a novelty type of way. Pendulum pretty much are the starbucks of the d'n'b world though
song is ok
Dear Pendulum, go and remix some more Prodigy.
Digging: The Birthday Massacre - Superstition
go and make some lego
Dear Bloc, why don't you make like a bloc and go party somewhere else?
Sup with all teh hatez yo?
IN FLAMES?! Holy shit, I don't care if the song is shit, I just need to hear it. xD
And yeah, considering I absolutely adore Hold You Colour and In Silico was a bit meh, I'm not looking that much forward to this. They were saying in interviews that it was meant to be a more successful meshing of the two albums, but I dunno.
Pendulum is generally meh on a disc
Well, the stuff i've heard can be taken two ways. If you're holding out for Hold Your Colour part 2, you'll hate this. If you're just looking for a cheesy but fun 'dance' album, you'll probably enjoy it. To a degree anyway.
Anyone will tell you that I love house music so i'm actually enjoying this track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9yST_rj4TY
But this is meant to be a drum n bass album, so.....
Actually, their new single isn't half bad. At the very least it manages some emotion, something In Silico completely missed.
They kinda nailed it on The Tempest
Oh shit, forgot about that song. But kinda a one off compared to every second song on Hold Your Colour (title track and Still Grey particularly).
Yeah i heard that generic electro track it made me lol hard. its like they are constantly trying to musically discredit themselves.
If the album is like In Silico, I'm gonna buy a copy so I can take it to Iceland and throw it in the volcano.
EDIT: Watercolour sounds more like Hold your Colour, which is a very good sign.
Hey lol I made an account jus coz of this thread lol
I guess I can see where your all coming from especialy after the release of 'In Silico' hell, even I was slightly taken a-back after listenin to hold your colour, and once again I was also taken a-back after buying 'Immersion' yesterday and listening to it. Thing is I still like every song on the album, as I did with 'In Silico' and I think it's because there's a certain element of ballsiness about it. I recently watched an interview with Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen and they said that they get bored with their music and always decide to head in a new direction even if they piss fans off along the way, and for me thats cool you know? And I think that's why I like them so much they're not afraid to try new things despite wether the fans enjoy it as much or not. I think it's the err inconsitency I guess that appeals to me so much because I never get bored of the variety they produce........ But that's just my opinion lol
