This is a very nice IDM record. Other than that, my relationship to this is quite neutral, and saying that as a long time Aphex Twin fan. It just doesn’t have any specificity to this time and place, and it also doesn’t invoke memories strongly enough so it would be clearly on the nostalgia side. It’s like the B sides collection of records from twenty years back. It’s… fine.
Glitchy IDM with nice melodies. Sounds very old school for a record in 2022, but also brings me back to a great era of rhythmic experimental music. It could have been a major Warp release.
First half of the record is amazing downtempo glitchy electronics with beautiful melodies and ethereal vocals. It shows both band members at their best, Dave Harrington and Nicolas Jarr sound like mixing up Apparat and Bonobo, especially on the more hook-heavy primary single track, The Limit. Then the second half of the record gradually goes into more indie influences, ambient jammings, and audibly auto-tuned vocals that I don’t appreciate. It’s a bummer but overall the album delivers some strong singles still.
Intimate electronic music (think Moderat) with down to mid tempo and glitchy broken beats. Not the kind of intimate that makes you turn inside and feel blue, but the one that gives a push and inspires.
Acid IDM glitch-core. Took a good ten listens to be able to stop at first encounter. Pretty pretty looking forward to the new album.
IDM infused with some glitches and breakcore beats and jungle rythm and dub. Surprisingly powerful, exciting.
Very much soothing glitchy-chilly-heady IDM.
Weird-hop, psychedelic glitch, murky bass. This little 4-track EP is wtf brilliant, like Amon Tobin level
amazing IDM, and still completely unique.
Eclectic electronic with some heavy old-edIT kind of glitch beats, some ambient textures and noiseful IDM, some instrumental hiphop tempo, and even some chill psychedelic tunes here and there.
Looks like I just re-discovered the Hymen Records catalog.
Part intimate, part exploration. Ambient and glitches and noises.
