Music Listening & Sharing


Recommended Posts

Platform by Holly Herndon is quite wonderful, blending the dizzying sonic collages and polyrhythms of IDM with the spiritual glitch of Murcof's Martes to create an art pop record that recalls Björk at her best at times, in feel if not necessarily in sound, filled with that same kind of creative drive and resonant core.

Murcof - Martes is one of the finest albums I've heard. I wish it got more love.

This sounds pretty cool! A bit more reminiscent of the usual Amon Tobin sound than Fear in a Handful of Dust (though I don't speak with the greatest authority in the matter either). I'll have a listen to it!

Also Martes is indeed superb, to me what Murcof's done there is essentially the electronic equivalent to the sacred minimalism of John Tavener, Arvo Pärt and the likes. Really transcendent work. This is probably my favorite track off the album:

A bit of 80's nostalgia. A tribute to the madness of the cold war and imminent end of the world ⚛️

At first I was like wtf this destroys my speakers because of all the clutter, but it's kinda growing on me now.

Yeah, both his albums and those with F--- Buttons tend to have this very expansive, maximalist "wall of noise" approach to them, but it does feel like he's taking this particular record farther with the noise and death industrial influences than his previous work. It feels harsher and more aggressive, and in a way it reminds me of Ben Frost's A U R O R A as well.

But whereas I feel A U R O R A suffers a bit from all the noise and compression somehow drowning out the lower frequencies and making the record feel a little tinny, Animated Violence Mild does have that weight to it and I think it makes its very crunchy "cosmic bulldozer" sound quite appealing. I quite like it.

Speaking of new albums, did I link the new album by Lingua Ignota before? Caligula's quite extraordinary, blending the harshness of death industrial and power electronics production with dense orchestral arrangements to create a pretty harrowing, mastodonic experience, with her undeniably powerful declamatory voice at the forefront of it all. Truly one of the finest vocalists around.

Again, you can listen to the full thing here.
