This is definitely growing on me. Feels very beautiful in a kind of cold, mathematical way... like admiring the angles and light refraction of some jewel.

Common textures, structures, and atmospheres but pleasant

Rival Consoles has yet to really impress me

Honestly this vein of progressive electronic has a really melancholic/dispondent vibe that I find a bit offputting in general. It reminds me somewhat of an electronic equivalent of post-rock. I could list a lot of artists I think are similar but that I wouldn't actually neccessarily reccommend highly. So in the spirit of things I actually would recommend - at least without feeling relatively impartial - a couple of these might be more liberal parallels than others, sharing spiritual, structural, or textural similarities in place of direct stylistic comparisons.

Leon Vynehall - Nothing Is Still (Noticed you have his other stuff rated but not this - it is quintessential)
CLARK - Death Peak
Floating Points - Crush
Jacques Greene - Dawn Chorus
Throwing Snow - Embers
Max Cooper - Emergence
Lapalux - Amnioverse (Will be one of the biggest far cries from this but it's also the most essential)
Aparde - Glass
Dave DK - Val Maira
HVOB - Rocco

Awesome, thanks dude. I personally do love that melancholic *post-rock* electronic vibe in that sort of Kiasmos-esque pocket which i find quite similar to this however anything adjacent in feeling or style to that is more than welcomed.



I also stopped rating properly for a few years on here so most of my ratings are from 2010-2012 when i was most active so I have heard that Vynehall record (it's fantastic) and a few others you've rec'd but I enjoyed them all. Second time this week I've been told to listen to that Jacques Greene album so I'll start with that.

People into this should definitely check out Max Cooper. Yearning for the Infinite is probably my favourite from him atm.

This guy is the kink of making good background electronic that occasionally grabs your attention, but feels more like edging than ejaculating to put it crudely - although that applies to most "IDM" . I thought Howl was the best thing he's done too but this site obviously doesn't agree with that

Okay, Emergence by Max Cooper is incredible, can’t believe I haven’t heard him before

"this vein of progressive electronic has a really melancholic/dispondent vibe that I find a bit offputting in general"

that's why I appreciate the barker lp for its hedonic and utopian impulses. should be in your rec list~

@HBFS: check barker - utility
