It’s like it happens on it’s own

Have I mentioned Bleep before? I can’t control myself there. Here’s the latest purchases:

Autechre :: Untitled The latest release from Autechre. If you’re an Autechre fan, buy this at your first opportunity. It’s that good, possibly even in the running for their best album, though if you’re a big Autechre fan then you’ve most likely got some edge opinions on music and getting you to agree on a best ablum is about as likely as getting every wine buff to agree on a single best pinot. I get goosebumps listening to just the first few bars of track 5, Lera. It’s like the aural version of taking punches. Very pleasurable punches.

Bola While I was online grabbing Autechre, I came across Bola (Skam Records). They remind me of Boards of Canada just a tad. A little more constantly melodic and equally as good.

Virus Syndicate Virus Syndicate. I’m not sure what’s happening here. It’s not my usual thing, but I had to get this. Holy crap am I hooked on this track. It’s just a single, released in preview for the full album following on 5-30-05. I’m not sure what to say about it, so check out the listenable bits on their page. Oh yeah, the single is the first song, “Slow Down”.

edITI had never heard of edIT until last night. After finding Virus Syndicate and wanting more then they’ve put out, I checked out their label, Planet Mu, to find some hopefully similar artists. While not similar, they weren’t something I could pass up. Consistantly rhythmical, but very mixed up. The underlying beat repeats well enough, but there’s so much texture that I don’t think it ever sounds the same twice. Fantastically good shit.
