Squarepusher Rocks with Bots. Great interview. Tom pushes heavily on the idea that music by humans is characterized largely by our limitations. He talks a lot about our perception of what is “natural” or that which has soul.
I don’t even have a reasonable guess as to how many times I’ve listened through Aphex Twin’s Selected Ambient Works, Volume 2. I do know I had it on repeat for large swaths of time. It’s beautiful, strange, and takes you to some wonderful places. It’s currently $5 on Amazon, so be sure to take a look.
Whut. Gold, A++ track.
So good. The title checks out, too. Rinse, repeat.
So solid. Thanks to Nick for the heads up.
You might seriously have something wrong with you if sitting through the second and third tracks of this album don’t put a smile on your face or at least raise some hairs on your arm. Lightning Bolt is loud and rowdy as hell, rock and roll that would make a caveman shit and then start thrashing about. It was a delight when I first picked it up years ago, and it cuts just as well today. Tune in, by any means necessary.
I’ve listened through this album countless times, though I’ve put it in hibernation over the last few years. Picking it up again, I forget why. Venetian Snares is certainly an acquired taste, though this album zooms along and has some rather deep hooks.
