Well, this came out of nowhere. Glad to see Ameer dropping something. And I have to say, it's good. After learning that Ameer left Brockhampton in 2018, I wasn't sure that Ameer could release anything worthwhile. I thought if all the members of Brockhampton were to go solo, Ameer would be the weakest of them. But after hearing some Puppy snippets, I changed my mind just a bit. If he could change up his flow and lyricism to the same quality as his stuff on Puppy, he might have it in him. But ... read more

Nothing great, new, or all that interesting, just a pleasant and ethereal ambient record from tape loop wizard Hainbach. Some of the sounds he creates on this album get my hopes up that one of his earlier projects will flow better or feel more cohesive, as Gestures doesn't really do it for me.

Favorite Tracks: Gestures 7, A Quiet Adieu, Gestures 2

Least Favorite Track: Gestures 5

This album is living, breathing proof than modular synthesizers are fully capable of producing great music without the help of anything else. Datach'i's free flowing electronica impresses, and has got me adding Eurorack modules and cases to my Christmas list. Wacky, vibrant, and sometimes mellow colors and tones are splashed all over the tracks (kind of like the cover, innit). This record sounds like having weird, semi-serious thoughts while alone at home, absolutely wonderful. My only ... read more

In many ways, Chiastic Slide is similar to Tri Repetae with it's percussion. However, Chiastic Slide is more explorative, with that odd scratching/rubbing sound on Rettic AC, the formless, un-metrinomic feel of Hub, and the lack of percussion on Pule. It's this exploration of sounds and the absence of sounds that makes Chiastic Slide an interesting experience. It's just as detailed and thought through as Tri Repetae, but it keeps you listening carefully and rewards you for doing so. Definitely ... read more

A great conclusion to the Saturation trilogy. It's consistent, it has quirky bangers, and it has Bleach. Boogie is an incredible track with roaring sax licks, a fuzzy pattern, and great energetic performances from everyone involved. Zipper contains more great performances, wavey synths and a laid back yet groovy beat. And then there's Bleach, with pretty vocals, those same synths, a vaguely vaporwavish instrumental backdrop, and it all gels together so well. I could go on about nearly all the ... read more

About
Just a high school student and musician that loves experimental music and wants to write about artists he likes somewhere.

Edit or something 9/16/19: So I've noticed that I rate/review things positively way more often than not. Not that I will start disliking a record just because I overrated it. What I'm saying is I will re-rate and maybe even edit reviews to better reflect the value of a 90 or an 80. I feel like I've devalued 90s and 80s because I just put stuff I like in that spot usually.
