  • FullOfSounds Thanks dude I love it, real cathartic stuff
    March 17 09:40 PM
  • Sinternet huh haven't heard of earthen sea what should i check?
    March 17 02:18 PM
  • TwigTW turns out it's sitting right in front of me on Spotify XD
    March 17 01:16 PM
  • TwigTW I see you rated the new Anohni. Is it streaming somewhere?
    March 17 08:06 AM
  • TwigTW Yeah, I wouldn't cut anything, just won't listen to the whole thing all at once again, lol.
    March 17 08:05 AM
  • TwigTW ...but a little long.
    March 16 12:54 PM
  • TwigTW Listening now--it's great!
    March 16 11:42 AM
  • FullOfSounds i did not her it's not true it's bulls*** i did not hit her i did n o t
    March 15 10:58 AM
  • TwigTW Ha ha, English is impossible . . . Glad you found it interesting. I'm loving it.
    March 15 10:37 AM
  • TwigTW I like the blues, but I know what you mean. It really is the same thing over and over again. Fink has added just a touch of electronics and Flood's production gives it a beautiful atmosphere--but it's still the blues. You'll know by the second song if it's worth your time.
    March 14 03:04 PM
  • TwigTW I don't know if you like the blues. Maybe not? But if you do, here is a new release with a nice atmosphere/production: Fink - Fink's Sunday Night Blues, Vol. 1
    March 14 02:27 PM
  • TwigTW I had to go back and listen again myself, I'd say it's a saxophone . . . Krokofant are dependable--always great.
    March 14 02:20 PM
  • JamieTwort That's fair enough. Personally I love instrumental hip-hop of that nature when it's done as well as Karriem does it. I may been too quick with my statement though as thinking about it Oh No's Ultimate Breaks and Beats album from this year is at least on a par if not better.
    March 8 03:16 AM
  • JamieTwort So you're just not a fan of 'beat tapes' in general then? I'll be very surprised if I hear a better one all year tbh.
    March 7 03:36 PM
  • anatelier sorry bruv missed your message, i'm not familiar with sleepy sun but baby guru definitely have a vintage aesthetic
    March 4 06:24 PM
  • FullOfSounds Very nice
    March 3 07:19 AM
  • Relinquished lonefront did well, but it's a question of whether "I see myself coming back to it"
    March 2 10:52 AM
  • Relinquished u noticed the vocalist for Kehlvin is the same for Rorcal now
    March 2 10:46 AM
  • Artuma sweet, i dig totem skin a lot. thanks for the rec mate
    March 1 05:30 AM
  • Rowan5215 dude I could go on for years his kid cudi review triggered me so hard
    March 1 05:12 AM
  • Artuma yeah i've always seen him as more of a studio vocalist rather than a live performer but i'd still die to see the band live. it's just another world to actually be there than to watch it from your computer or whatever
    March 1 02:54 AM
  • Rowan5215 "reasons why george harrison is the best beatle, part one of thirty-four: who is george?" but thanks man
    March 1 02:33 AM
  • Artuma only the t/t off it. it was great for sure but i'm gonna stick with the studio version. i'm not the biggest fan of live albums anyway
    March 1 02:20 AM
  • MotokoKusanagi for sure, and the clear Death Grips influence on the "improv" track is cool
    February 28 01:34 PM
  • MotokoKusanagi props for moon hooch. they tour the jam band circuit near me a bit - great live band
    February 28 12:41 PM
  • TwigTW Will do!
    February 27 07:17 AM
  • theBoneyKing It's good though. I see you 1.5'd it, what do you find so bad about it?
    February 25 11:59 AM
  • TwigTW New Krokofant is out, it's another jazz-rock stomper.
    February 25 11:29 AM
  • ZippaThaRippa Hey have you ever heard of this band called Dakhma? Their new s*** is actually kind of good. Probably would go way over the head of a scrub like you but you never know
    February 24 07:21 PM
  • ZippaThaRippa Because **** you, that's why
    February 23 01:30 PM
  • kascetcadettt yours is art
    February 23 12:14 PM
  • kascetcadettt ok i'm waiting for a gal to draw a cover for me so idk when it's goin to drop lol
    February 23 10:45 AM
  • kascetcadettt oh s*** i wanted to see both trailer park boys and parks n rec for a long time, but never really had the time or enthusiasm to actually do it and as for producing, i don't do s*** tbh, like really i just save it the way it sounds in fl studio when you construct the whole thing
    February 23 09:56 AM
  • kascetcadettt my fav track gotta be typhoon f and maybe underwater firestarter, also where are the "holy ****", "go **** yourself" and "this is my favorite band i told you a million times" samples from?
    February 23 07:24 AM
  • kascetcadettt mkay listened to your ep, first of all that album cover is disgusting what in the **** man, musically it's not bad but i wouldn't say it's anything special either, i kinda think that you should have more breaks like you kno kicks, hi-hats and especially snares bangin just to keep the momentum, the retro sounds are dope good job, i also loved the use of samples and voiceovers, u should keep that thing and work on the tunes, make them less boring and more fun, not sure about lo-fi sound too
    February 23 07:21 AM
  • kascetcadettt yeah sure i'm a sucka for chiptune u kno me, gonna check it soon and tell u what i think
    February 23 05:17 AM
  • kascetcadettt idk got an acoustic guitar, decided to play some lame stuff, got tired of making chiptunes since i've released more than 10 records in 2 years
    February 23 05:08 AM
  • kascetcadettt nah i'm done with chiptune for now at least
    February 23 05:04 AM
  • deezer666 I love the second half of that track. An Ep really isnt enough.
    February 22 12:14 PM
  • deezer666 yeah pretty momentous weekend!!
    February 20 06:40 PM
  • deezer666 I think its dutch for the word 'ache' I saw them support Oathbreaker and Mare on the same weekend both times they were real good. Thats their first release. A whole lot of potential.
    February 20 03:32 PM
  • Archelirion ****ing hell :oThis is kinda what I want Plebeian Grandstand to have done. This rips!
    February 16 12:53 PM
  • Relinquished dude tbh wtf that was so good, it caught me on the right time I'm playing old school video games with my son and the tunes clicked.
    February 16 08:59 AM

    February 10 07:51 AM
  • Flugmorph i took a bite of sound and it tasted weird. Not at home atm so ill check the full jam later today. Are those song titles swedish?
    February 8 02:29 AM
  • Flugmorph what is that animu u r speaking about
    February 8 02:23 AM
  • Archelirion The second one man, don't worry - the review was great :3
    February 7 12:07 PM
  • TwigTW Meanwhile... I see you got that Julie Byrne right. It's very pretty, but it has no soul. I gave it a 3.5--must have been in a good mood that day--need to lower it.
    February 7 11:43 AM
  • TwigTW Something about that album repulsed me. Her voice? her 'experimentation'? Lifting half the album from Laurie Anderson? Seldom do I have such a bad initial reaction to an album. At one point I wanted to give it a 1, but I went with a somewhat more objective 2.5 because I can see that it is not a horrible album. I just don't like it. ¯\_(?)_/¯
    February 7 10:06 AM
  • Archelirion Must admit, it was well put together and some of the samples made me laugh (The War on Drums had me giggling most of the way through). I just really hate the sound of the high pitched 8-bit note, always have done. I'd be intrigued to hear more from the project though, should you continue.
    February 7 08:49 AM
  • FullOfSounds Ye I love that one.
    February 5 02:22 PM
  • Archelirion Haha. Make sure to put intricately patterned full stops about for that sense of arbitrariness.I'd recommend it. First listen was intriguing enough, but the second one was where it really started clicking for me.
    February 5 02:20 PM
  • Archelirion - It's gonna be my first stab at writing a review for IDM so it's probably gonna ****ing suck, but I wanna start somewhere :3
    February 5 02:14 PM
  • Archelirion Actually trying to write a review for the first time in forever. Hoping I can get it done later this evening.The Tarantino? Man, I've not seen that in ages.
    February 5 02:07 PM
  • CalculatingInfinity No probs mate.
    February 5 01:36 PM
  • Archelirion Cheers fella :3 It's on Halo of Flies which is basically the best distrib ever, so I'm bound to like it. How's life?
    February 5 01:27 PM
  • CalculatingInfinity Just finished. These mainly sound like a collage of samples and 8-Bit beats than full cohesive songs to me minus a few cool parts, sorry dude not really groovin' to it :/
    February 5 12:15 PM
  • FullOfSounds NP dude. I think it would be funny with more dance oriented the samples you used
    February 5 12:08 PM
  • CalculatingInfinity The break at 2:00 on the third track made me laugh not gonna lie haha.
    February 5 12:01 PM
  • CalculatingInfinity I'll listen to it all right now since I literally just stared at a ceiling for the past hour.
    February 5 11:53 AM
  • FullOfSounds I wasn't either, it's worth it tho
    February 5 11:50 AM
  • FullOfSounds Also Embers grows really hard
    February 5 11:30 AM
  • FullOfSounds I would like to hear more dance friendly.
    February 5 11:20 AM
  • FullOfSounds Twas good. You have big plans for this project?
    February 4 03:29 PM
  • FullOfSounds Sure thing man. I'll report back with my thoughts
    February 4 12:00 PM
  • FullOfSounds Okay so Mosaic was too lacking in cohesion, this one has too much. I feel like it's missing something.
    February 4 11:27 AM
  • FullOfSounds I haven't listened it myself yet, I'm excited to see how he evolved. Some of your complaints are mutual with mine on his '14 LP Mosaic
    February 4 10:41 AM
  • FullOfSounds Thoughts on the new Throwing Snow
    February 3 07:44 PM
  • TwigTW "It's a shame paragraphing" and so many other things don't work on Sputnik . . . Chiptune is new for everyone. You're on the cutting edge!
    February 2 01:30 PM
  • TwigTW It's not unpleasant at all, lol. I'm not a chiptune expert, but I think it's a lot of fun. Keep up the good work!
    February 2 10:54 AM
  • TwigTW I didn't know you made music. "pleasantly unpleasant," sounds interesting, will do!
    February 1 10:56 AM

    January 6 07:05 AM
  • RadicalEd Awesome. Thx.
    January 5 04:06 AM
  • RadicalEd When we jammed yesterday, the first song you played was some sexy electro/idm type of stuff, but I don't remember the artist. Can you help me out?

    January 4 07:25 AM

    December 23 10:48 AM
  • hal1ax Ayyyy. Glad you like. That record has been getting some positive reception around here.. Kinda surprising.
    December 23 10:23 AM
  • deezer666 It really is. Seen it popping on a few list outside Sput so good to see someone put it on here man. The 3 way collab he did last year is pretty dope too.
    December 22 07:24 PM

    December 9 09:40 AM
  • Relinquished dude thanks for the reminder! I knew of 11paranoias and checked out that bandcamp page, then I checked "Of Ruins" but didn't know they made a new one. will check it out.

    December 7 01:15 PM

    December 6 05:55 PM
  • necropig Newest one by Wedrujacy Wiatr
    December 6 05:41 PM

    December 6 02:43 PM
  • Voivod Or to be entirely accurate, to the stuff I really like.
    December 6 01:16 PM
  • Voivod I merely check out everything that says "Sweden" and "psych/hard/retro rock" and stick to the good stuff.
    December 6 01:13 PM

    November 28 05:10 PM
  • TwigTW That is nice, smoooooth!
    November 24 08:50 AM
  • TwigTW I don't like Day To Day as much as it fascinates me. I never know what's coming up next. That draws me in and keeps me interested. Not sure what will happen to my rating after I get the lay of the land; it's going up or down, but I'm really not sure which direction.
    November 22 06:32 AM
  • Flugmorph thx for offering me, man
    November 21 03:00 PM
  • TwigTW ha, ha, was just looking at your 3 for Sarathy Korwar -Day to Day . . . re-listening to Vian now and I like the production. It's beautiful, but nothing happens that gets me excited or pulls me into it. I would give it a 3.3 if I could??toe tapping good, but not great . . . I'm guessing you really like it?
    November 21 11:05 AM
  • Flugmorph Dont think thats it. Im just so ****ing lazy.
    November 21 07:40 AM
  • Flugmorph For a good month now. First two weeks were cool and exiting, now not so much anymore :(

    November 18 01:20 PM

    November 13 12:29 PM
  • hal1ax maaaan, i was excited about that one after reading the p4k review for it, but, yaaaa i never even would've though that a fusion of all of those different styles could sound so rigid and lifeless lol.
    November 10 10:40 AM
  • oltnabrick like ****ing with it by stretching it out and layering different sounds over and over
    November 4 12:41 PM
  • oltnabrick lots of warping and amplifying sound lol. and now we're even lol

  • TwigTW The Future Sound Of London have a new album out? And you gave it a 3.5, need to check that out.
    October 13 11:14 PM
  • TwigTW Never was a big Loeffler fan, but something about the new album clicked with me . . . Skeleton Tree is great, but it's sad too. If you liked the last one, you would probably like this one too. They have a lot in common stylistically. Just keep in mind that he was mourning the death of his son while writing and recording it. Like I said--sad.

  • akimbo you have a dropbox? send me your email addy
    September 4 11:04 PM
  • XingKing The beginning of that first track definitely gives the record a different vibe with the singing, so I can see that. It also has a ton of guest vocalists. Alex is super prolific though and is constantly pumping out new records in the crust-post metal-hardcore realm.
    August 18 05:12 PM
  • XingKing It's the same vocalist. A lot of his projects are in very similar genres
    August 18 04:00 PM
  • JamieTwort Sure thing, try these: Taj and Zoby - Music to Clean to, Kristoffer Lo - The Black Meat, Benoit Pioulard - Thine, DjRum - Forgetting
    August 16 04:08 PM
  • JamieTwort Yeah man it rules, one of the best ambient releases I've heard this year.
    August 15 11:31 AM
  • TwigTW 2016 is slowing down for me too. I've started checking out albums from the '60s and '70s, but I don't think '70s funk is your thing . . . I don't your rating for Good Willsmith - 'Things Our Bodies Used To Have'. It's from earlier this year--worth checking out if you haven't already.
    August 14 02:51 PM
  • TwigTW sounds great--can't believe they are only 16 years old!
    August 6 05:10 PM
  • TwigTW Lol, I have to admit . . . If I didn't sometimes feel over excited about new albums I wouldn't spend so much time listening to them.
    August 4 06:01 PM
  • TwigTW looks interesting--will do.
    August 4 02:58 PM
  • TwigTW I see what you mean.
    July 21 12:54 PM
  • TwigTW I see you don't like the new KETEV as much as the last one. I haven't checked it out yet, but Traces Of Weakness is going to be hard to beat.

  • TwigTW Oh, just noticed that you 3d the new Radiohead... 2.5 is about right for the new Eno. That album really disappointed me. Don't know why, but I was expecting something special.

  • TwigTW Welcome back... Check out the new James Blake, Radiohead, and Anohni. Not sure if you'll like them, but everyone's talking about them. This is what I've been listening to recently:

  • TwigTW I really like it, but Kid A and In Rainbows are my favorites . . . Many people don't like it because it doesn't contain anything we haven't heard before from Radiohead. It is a step backwards, but after the TKOL I'd say that's a step in the right direction.

  • TwigTW You haven't 5d the new Radiohead yet, slacker . . . but seriously, any thoughts?
