| ||Dream Dolphin Gaia: Selected Ambient & Downtempo Works (1996-2023)|
2 hours of lost Japanese new age-driven ambient? Yeehaw. Thanks to evasive vocals and ECCOJAMZ samples, this ambient (and slightly downtempo) affair goes towards the soothing side of the spectrum, with the occasional catchy synth line showing that dance music is never too far away.
| ||JPEGMAFIA and Danny Brown Scaring the Hoes|
Crazy beats (that was to be expected) with occasional disso-saxo shenanigans and dem dual chipmunk-soul/slowed-vapor snippets support those always-on-the-edge DBrown raps. Intense and challenging to digest at first, but real cool as expected from these two mfs, even though DBrown's impact weakens after like two verses of his. Just gimme a JPEG x Zel tape.

Yung Lean go pop-rock? Cool! His voice isn't always on tune (eh that's Yung Lean, but still "Swedish Elvis Storm" ugh), but he's definitely got a knack for that kind of familiar and comfy pop-rock, plus he shows that he can be charming.
| ||Ne Obliviscaris Exul|
At time cheesy progjank, at other times big and cinematic (but not cheesy!), this is basically the best kind of Disney metal (because their bass tone is fucking phat).
| ||August Burns Red Death Below|
They *kinda* sound reinvigorated here. Not that they're back to their late noughties' form, but: some riffs are actually good, some bass can be heard (!!!), some tracks try to do something than their traditional chuggy chug chug fest. Gotta say the majority of this is typical ABR, but not shitty like the last one. Woo! Not that woo, but you get me.
| ||Skee Mask ISS009|
Skee Mask is at his most easy listening on ISS009. That doesn't mean this is fodder; it means the tunes' banger aspect is more evident than ever, carried by his typical blend of breakbeat loops soothed by ambient touches?one of the best to do it right now.
| ||PoiL Ueda PoiL Ueda|
Japanese banshee Junko Ueda uses French weirdoes PoiL's avant prog technique to accompany her buddhist litanies. It's *here* without properly being *there* - gotta see that live?
|ArsMoriendi Oh good, I think it?ll be your thing, maybe even more than I but idk |
|ArsMoriendi Due to your Our Band Could Be Your Life list, I am enlisting you to give Godcaster's self-titled Sophomore effort a STAFF review. It comes out Friday, I think you'd dig it. Could you give it a whirl sometime within the release's first week? :)|
|Trifolium HIhihiihhi yes I can imagine. That's a looottttt of work, also with the re-checking if they are still correct and such. But you can do it!|
