Just finished streaming Autechre's NTS Session 4 on Bleepstore

The last track 'all end' is the strangest I have ever heard from Autechre. It's 58 minutes long and consists basically of a continous sound (something like a combination of a complex chord played with organ and the sound of a waterfall) with tiny fluctuations and changes in time. Autechre's music can be very weird, but this was really weird even by Autechre's own standards.

Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

Big Ae veteran fanboy here. Are you? You should have been at the Ae subreddit, WATMM or the chatmm replacement discord on those thursday, it was so much fun. People were reacting live to what they were listening to. I was there on NTS2-4, NTS1 was at my birthday unfortunately, i.e. no time for Ae. Well you can read the mega threads in Reddit or WATMM, lots of discussion, fun and memes. Big hype train of course.

The community majority IMO loves where they are going. And I do. My favourite track currently is tt1pd, to me it is a Hieronymus Bosch theme, mankind at dooms day. Cannot listen to "all end" too loud, I am convinced it would do harm to my ears. Too much permanent pressure on the ears! I love shimripl casual on NTS4 very much.

Related: Nice 2 hrs podcast about NTS here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_oJ-MNR79s

Instabought all NTS' right after the stream of course. I'm thinking about giving tt1pd a proper ending, since it unfortunately fades into the next track.

Agnetha Faltskog





This one was released in 2013 and the high soprano voice had gone but the power, strength and depth were still there at that stage. It will be interesting to hear her later this year.

ABBA: The Visitors





My favourite ABBA album of the lot. The songs, the production, the voice, the harmonies; especially the last two songs on the album. That ticking clock on the last track; time just ran out in the end unfortunately.

Good one! - the new material from ABBA later this year will be of interest. :)

Yes indeed. I hope that they try to resume from where this one left off and not try to emulate their Pop hits of long ago. This devopment is what I am particularly interested in.

For aligreto.

My experience is every classic JT album has at most 2 listenable tracks. On this one it is You've Got a Friend and Machine Gun Kelly.

Wrong.  The best song on this album, and arguably in his entire catalog, is You Can Close Your Eyes.  Also, Long Ago and Far Away, Highway Song are worthy of mention. You've Got a Friend is a Carole King song, anyway.  Still great, but if we're talking his stuff - it don't count.   ;)
