This is the last thing I saw:

I know Geoff Barrow has been busy with BEAK>, and doing scores for Alex Garland movies (a new one, for ANNIHILATION, based on a FUCKED UP horror book I love, will be out his year).

But it seems as though Portishead might just be over. Or, possibly, dine with new albums. They'll probably do some legacy touring at some point. But think about it, when Third came out, we'd been waiting for a new studio record for 11 goddamn years. During that time, the album went though a number of phases and gestations, and new about it was leaking as early as 2001/02.

Now it's been another decade of silence, but there's been no mention of a new album. None that I can remember. Nothing. Zip.

Fucking shame, really. Third is the gold standard for "comeback" albums. Nobody's ever done it better. I thought it would be IMPOSSIBLE for Portishead to make a viable, successful and challenging album during a period when "trip-hop" was a fucking insult. But they reduced their sound down to its basest elements and built it back up, creating something that not only met but EXCEEDED expectations.

That's right. Even though I grew up with Dummy (which was, essentially, the proto-Ok Computer, before Radiohead itself was even at Bends-level, in that it was the defining opus of British art-electronic), and had my mind blown by Portishead's wicked, wicked self-titled album, I actually think Third is better than BOTH by far.

Not even A Tribe Called Quest pulled it off so well. Not GY!BE. Not even my beloved Aphex Twin. (Sorry, SYRO, you're awesome but you're no Third.)

Sad...

Here, lets dry our eyes and hold hands and bask in the ... err ... "beauty" ... of this absolutely horrifying Eraserhead-esque video for the best track on Third.

Amazing song.

With the video I take it you've not seen Tetsuo?

not sure if this falls under the definition of 'electronic' but regardless this one should be a blinder

 

graham lambkin & taku unami - the whistler [coming soon on erstwhile]


the new henning christiansen release on penultimate is also glorious.





feeling like I'm very quickly falling out of the loop in the club-based game, new N1L on uiq is sweet as is the new neana tape, looking forward to the new ilpo vaisanen and second woman records on emego.....can't keep up with the rest

Kristian M. Roberts - Two Portraits is more terrifying than the harshess noise record you've heard in a long time, yet its lush enough to fall asleep to.

I have not. Nor do I watch many music videos, so I just searched for the thing on YouTube and grabbed the first result.

Tetsuo must be a pretty fucked up Japanese body-horror film, I'm guessing?

pretty much. For the longest time it was a friend of mine's favourite film. It's not that good, but it's pretty out there.

Works well with "Machine Gun," but I'm not interested in seeing the movie because I've seen Eraserhead and read Metamorphosis and ANNIHILATION and body/vessel horror shit just kind of freaks me the motherfucking fuck out.

Visible Cloaks - Reassemblage

I see that this got a good rating on pitchfork, not that that matters to most, but it really is quite a good album. I've purchased about half of the tracks so far, and I think I'm going to spring for the physical release, as it's one of few 2017 albums that are worth it at this point.

Pitchfork struggles with genres, specifically the need to abide by genre "rules," which is why they describe this as ambient. I would not, as there are definite melodic and harmonic structures to the songs, which are repeated, and there are percussive elements that provide cohesion to isolated ideas within tracks. This is really not ambient music.

It also not wholly electronic, but it's fucking good!

Listen to "Bloodstream" and "Mask". These are my picks at the moment.

if y'all have any love for Microstoria, and [fractured, tonal] music in the vein of Oval/Nuno Canavarro/Rafael Toral, i'd recommend this fella... Comme and Transition are fantastic albums, most everything i've sampled here is pleasant and affecting.

I just ordered the new Al Lover - Interference Patterns cassette......a departure from his psychedelic releases, but it has all the electronic goodness everyone is looking for.

Arca has a new self-titled album coming out in April. Should be fucking good.

 


Listen to new song "Piel"

^ the melody reminds me a bit of one of those songs on Burial's Rival Dealer. Can't remember which one because I only listen to that beautiful thing from start to finish, so it might as well be one track to me.

Arca is becoming a pretty formidable presence in the genre. Taking cues from all sorts of different places.

not sure if this falls under the definition of music, but it's certainly is electronic.

Dick Raaymakers (also Raaijmakers; 1 September 1930 – 4 September 2013) was a Dutch composer, theater maker and theorist. He was known as a pioneer in the field of electronic music and tape music. In addition, he realized numerous music theater pieces, art installations, and has published many theoretical essays.
