Listening to the evolution he made from '6 Feet...' to 'The OOZ', it was only a matter of time before Archy's entrancing soundscapes completely took centre stage on one of his albums. He completes that transition here, placing even more emphasis on atmosphere, though he somehow manages to throw in some of his most vocally present songs at the front of the album. In doing so, the most important ginger in our contemporary musical landscape craftily adds his third crucial chapter to the book of ... read more

The best Tame Impala-project to date, don't @ me. Not any unbelievable bangers, but unprecedented groove and consistency. Happiness suits you, Mr. Parker.

I'll gladly take an entire album of this math ambient stuff they've managed to cook up here.
If Geordie Greep and the boys are ever in need of a groupie, I'll gladly hop aboard the tour bus.

I'd honestly give this a 110 if I could. How someone is able to do this much with this little will forever astound me. Molina is the GOAT and this criminally underappreciated masterpiece of his confirms every bit of me stating the obvious. Rest in peace x

Destroyer's new album succeeds in its aimed-for coolness and the grooviness is hard to deny.

Sadly, the album far too often turns into a mushy soup of trite 'Destroyerisms' that don't entirely do the artistic intention of 'making something cool' the justice it deserves.

Better luck next time, Dan.

Hey! So sorry that I'm responding this late! I've been taking a break from the site (and social media as a whole.) Believe it or not, I did listen to some Songs: Ohia while I was gone and, strangely enough, his self titled of all things is the one that has stuck with me the most. Can't really pinpoint why. I think I'm just a minimalist kind of guy, but I absolutely adore it. Thank you by the way! Hope you're well!

hi there! respect to your question, i love ambient music cause it's the only genre can have the power to let me be in other soundscapes outside of this mundane reality, having me totally hypnotized by the textures. sometimes words combined with music aren't good for my mind to discover some kind of different landscapes that only sound have :) thank you for answering me, cheers!

Gonna have to check out that “songs:Ohio”

I'm not sure emotional potency is always what he's going for - more he loves language and a lot of his lyrics come across as strange wisdom from another time

I see you're not quite as smitten with Will Oldham though - don't give up with him, it might be a case you make more of a breakthrough at some stage down the line. A lot of these folk song writers you need to carry with you a decade before they really speak to you.

oh yeah, Molina is one of those who never lets you down. There's still Molina stuff I haven't checked yet actually but i've tried out most of his output and I'm saying none of it is less than great.

Oh nice! I've been listening to that and Future Days actually. I should probably increase my record space before I get any more though :/ i still have a soft spot for Pink Floyd. Especially Meddle

I think I'll have to do that actually! I have a road trip this Sunday so you know what that means lol

Hi there! Try some Royal Trux, early Faust, Half Japanese, Sun City Girls, Destroy All Monsters, Agog, Karuna Khyal and so on.

Hello. My penis is of average size, which is a bit sad considering God didn't bless me with a great singing voice. He could've done a bit better on one of those. That's why I'm agnostic - the proof of his existence sure isn't found in my pants :'(
