Quote from: Baglady on October 17, 2020, 11:20:46 PMMATTIAS GUSTAFSSON - Frusen Musik CD (Careful Catalog, 2019)Listening to some of Mattias' records remind of my teenage years when I regularly suffered from heavy migraine. No matter how I isolated myself (locked myself up in the most quiet and remote part of the house, turned out the lights and covered my ears and eyes), it didn't help. Gradually I started to hear more and more sounds, as if my brain little by little amplified every real and imagined sound that went on in our home. Unintelligable noise from radios and tvs, dripping sounds from pipes and taps, buzzing electricity, wood creaking etc. Each and every sound slowly getting louder and louder, moving closer and closer. Like being stuck and strapped in an audial gallery of intrusive sounds. Several Altar Of Flies recordings have the same affect on me, but thankfully without the migraine. Frusen Musik falls into this category as well, and it's one of his very best albums to date, I think. It has this slow and slightly intoxicated trot to it, which many of his more erie records have, but rarely as perfectly paced as this one. Beautiful packaging too.

I saw Tietchens live around 2004 i think, and i didn't like it. So i never bothered to check him out. But i guess his early stuff might be alot different? That last track from 1991 does not make me very curious about PGR. But the LP on RRR maybe is different? I haven't heard Thessalonians either...

The yet relaxed yet complex drum programming with the sharp junglist reverb overdrive sound sounds exactly the way he does, add the powerful emotions and this one hits deep.

Shit man, stuff that hits like Babalon is so hard to find. "If You're Into it, I'm Out Of It" is an absolute classic. Haven't heard this one yet but I'm gonna have to with that description.
QuoteUnfortunately so much DnB/Jungle is ruined by dreadful samples and the ever-pervasive stench of weed.
Quote from: New Forces on October 29, 2020, 10:11:55 PMK-Group – SERIES 4 (Knotwilg)Drone perfection. Incredibly warm, organic, with the perfect hint of industrial clang. There are 10 distinct tracks on the album and I've managed to lose myself in each one when I listen to this record. A high-point so far this year.
