I am looking forward to Garden of Delete so much. OPN has been by far my favourite musician for quite a long time now.

I gave it a few proper spins recently.

I am not sure. I mean, it's WAY better than R Plus 7, but on the other hand, I really dislike the way he's moved in the past 2 records. I certainly know it's a deliberate attempt, but basically every track contains a million great ideas, that are just roughly outlined, and when it starts building up energy by repetition, then Lopatin suddenly breaks it all down and starts a new set of ideas. Which completely ruins the energy for me.
However, there are still many great tracks there.

I really like Garden of Delete.

I can see where _slavo_ is coming from, but from what I can tell after a few listens, if you just play the album and don't even pay attention to when/where individual songs stop and start, it does appear to be held together by some kind of overarching theme. I particularly like the second half, which has some really jubilant moments. It almost works like a single, twisted, labyrinthine track.

I'm definitely into it. In a year already packed with incredible electronic records by Hudson Mohawke, Nosaj Thing, Squarepusher, Prefuse 73, Aphex Twin/AFX, Four Tet and Botany, it stands out as pretty phenomenal and unique album.

New Squeeze album came out Tuesday. I haven't heard it yet, but I predict it'll either be good or bad.

I'd like to correct my previous statement. After several listens, I'm deeply in love with G.O.D. now. I like how the patterns encrypted in the songs nicely reveal themselves after a couple of spins.

Ok, I'm trying to kind of retroactively assemble a list of the albums I've picked up over the course of the year that have at least qualified as "good". At the moment, I'm still missing tons of shit, and there are probably quite a few errors in chronology (I tried to order them in ascending chronological order by release date and month... haha!), and there are a lot of definite grey areas.

For instance, Garden of Delete is set for a November release date, but I have a promo of it... same went for Deerhunter's Fading Frontier.. I heard these albums long before they dropped, but for continuity's sake I am trying to list them in the proper month.

Also, none of it matters and it's a huge waste of time, so there's that. But y'know... What the hell.

yeah this is the exact problem I had with the warp full-lengths he's done, he seemingly stumbles onto these great ideas then dumps them altogether, which I totally understand is the point of what he's doing but it can be frustrating when it's surrounded by unadulterated fluff.


ANYWAY haven't heard anyone talking about the new sun araw record on here, it's a beast. trio setup with cameron stallones, alex gray (d/p/i, dreamcolour), mitchell brown (gasp, professor cantaloupe)

The new Girls Names is fun. Good old gritty punk. Not as good as, say, Viet Cong's album, which is as far as I can tell the "Reflecting the Light" or "9 Songs" of this year, but it's pretty awesome nonetheless.

Speaking of Wavves, those motherfuckers have a new album out as well. I've never really listened to a lot of Wavves, but whenever I do I enjoy what I hear.
Anyone have anything to say about the new album?

Deerhunter has made another classic. Cox doesn't sound like Julian Casablancas for the first time since Micro-Castle, and it's refreshing. The album feels like REM, the Smiths, and other famously poppy bands with famously dark lyrics.

It's just another solid gold beauty. They've got a better track record than Pavement at this point. I really am glad they've been able to hang around even when contemporaries like Animal Collective and No Age have lost so much of their early momentum. I'm not sure Animal Collective has much of a future at all, and it doesn't help that Panda Bear is having such a nice solo career.

I never really have before honestly. I heard one of their earlier albums... Lonerism maybe... And I liked the Tame Impala guest spot on Flaming Lips & Heady Fwends...

I just decided to try the new album after hearing a ton of really good reviews.

It's alright. There's something Flaming Lips-y about TI. I like space rock and psychedelia. But I'm really not a fan. I just happen to think Currents is fairly good. They're certainly nothing special, that's for sure. But not everything has to be awesome. It's just a good alt rock album, in an era when there aren't many.

I'd rather be listening to Actress, and I do listen to Actress. A lot. So, quit busting my balls.

Richard Papiercuts - If

Great songs, great ideas and made by a great guy. For some reason it also reminds of the record this forum's Diesel could potentially come up with if he was working with other musicians rather than solo.
