Started downloading this Spaces album earlier and was screwin when it said it would take 90 mins or so to fucking download. I had other things to do so I just left it doing its thing. I had been checking a few tunes of his out on Youtube so I kept playing them in the meantime.
Almost exactly 90 minutes later the job is done so I extract the zip file. It tells me it's going to take 3 fucking minutes just to extract the file. I go off and do something else, forget about it, come back a bit later and suddenly remember to check if the thing extracted properly. I go to my download folder...
...to find eight new folders of his entire fucking discography.
No matter what else happens to me in life, today I win.
I can just picture you laying in bed at your local Hospital somewhere in France, paralysed from the waist down after drunk whizzing on an Electric Fence. I'm finding solace in the fact that under such circumstances, the smile on your face would remain because you now have ol' Nils's entire Discography stored on your harddrive.
So I finally got round to listening to Ben Frost's A U R O R A album after taking a break from ambient music and it's absolutely fantastic. Wonderful experimental/drone/ambient album. Gonna go a big Ben Frost binge me thinks.
Excellent stuff by Frost. Gave it a listen a few months ago and I completely concur w/ what you wrote.
New album I listened to this morning:
The Future Sound Of London - Environments 5 (2014)
Fifth installment in the Environments series of TFSOL
archival material, but what makes this unique is that all the songs are apparently new. It's puzzling that they didn't give it an actual title because the songs here are quite good. It doesn't reach Dead Cities
levels of greatness, but it's a reminder of what brought Cobain and Dougans to the dance. Recommended if you already enjoy TFSOL's psytrance/ambient brand of music, but i'd suggest getting into their 90's stuff first if you're new to them.
Then I venture around the internet to find out about this (dropping this month)
First new Aphex Twin
LP in 13 years.
