2019 Music

#1

Post by XxXApathy420XxX » May 7th, 2019, 2:52 am

I've decided that it's probably better to explore new music from this year throughout the year as opposed to the onslaught of lists at the end. I'll be posting albums here that I've given at least 8/10 to in order of when I've rated them. However I highly encourage other people to post great albums from this year as well.

I'm not gonna include the Autechre live albums or else this thread will be full of that.

Have you listened to their 'Bird Seed'? Lyrically it's one of most abrasive compositions ever, and then there's one track solely with interviews of people talking about how they've been sexually abused.

whom shall we find
Sufficient? who shall tempt with wand’ring feet
The dark unbottom’d infinite Abyss,
And through the palpable obscure find out
His uncouth way, or spread his aerie flight,
Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive
The happy Ile?

Yep, I enjoyed it but I felt like that interview track was a bit too edgy and that it goes downhill in the second half. This live album is a lot more abrasive and apocalyptic.

I didn't realise they were still active? Or is this an old live album newly released?

The concert was from 2008. They actually play some stuff from Bird Seed. They're not really active anymore, just releasing a ton of life albums. Only heard this one though.
