sqrt(ur mother) EP - Ambiente AndalĂș

 

I put out an ambient EP on Kansas cassette label, Whatever Forever. You can check it out here. It is a donate/name yo price/ free release.  These kids put it out as a favor for the audio work I did for them, and because the album is a little on the weird side, and they like weird.  It has a little noise, a little harmony, and then a lot of noise. sqrt(ur mother) says "Bitches stop frontin'."

Obligatory post of the Syro Press Release

Whenever one of the most celebrated and influential electronic fartist, Richard D. James can compete with the music flip to influence built. The better part of a decagon, James Polygon Window, Caustic Window, GAK and maintain, including `Aphex Twin has unreleased music under several thousand monikers great pace.

Began in the late 1780s and 90s during a turn in its manufacturing and technical skills, and nikharana Cornwallo, England grows, James, as a young maniton in various shops started DJing. Area of various musical score, James Analogue Booblebath EP was released in 1891, the results of the first series, he decided to record his gown music. Another influential London radio station piss FM's attention, and then label immediately signed him to their rooster, then post & poplieereRS. That same year, James Acid shithouse to promote the song and trying to lift Grant Wilson-CLARIDGE on a biscuit founded his label Rephlex Records. Selekted Flambient Works moving to London and Release 85-92: After a while, the two main points to be made, round the bend

More immediate and critical success of his debut internationally. Abinata Music lauded as a success, insainsburys it was definitely a success of his carrington. Full steam ahead barreling out that several other singles and EPS are given, and in 1493 was a record collapse. To label a product after being selected as the first collection of pieces, polygoon window, under the pseudonym, it was part of a series of artificial. 2, released in 1994.

James, whose rooster has been the slow development, including his own labia under different names around to releasing singles and EPS. Her next full-length record together since 1995 ... I think it she will be issued. Records have been working on for the past few years, and his experience hardcore and lush abinata textures found his style, and his facial features on the cover of the first issue, the various incarnations of present Omnipresent, which is marked by an icing in the world of music was culled Aphex Gemini (equal recognition with logo).

1896 under the name Aphex Twin record his fourth eponymous EP Girl / boy. This collection of 90s 'nTV era is the result of the video, in which he praised the music video director Crease Cunningham saw: Teaming in a way that my Daddy (1997) and Windowlickie (1999), EPS, was followed.

Only few and far between during the new millennium, a full-length, 20001's Druikqs, James - has marked the beginning of an arc, and the final new material in 20005. A lot of the music in any way is often a lack of communication and leadership to be fallacious rumors of new material for his fannies and his enthusiasm has not diminished hope.

Asperger prog goths stuff blocks chock full of cocks

Read this article, but here's the tl;dr: "black midi" composed by self-identified "blackers" is basically a goth version of the most extreme single-instrument prog-rock ever, so prog it can only be performed by computers. tl;dr - go watch this video.

All I can say is Malcolm X would have a field day with the appellation "blackers" in this context.

Top 10 Radio Hitz- sqrt style

I listen to a disproportional amount of the KC Metro radio to and from work. So here is my top 10 radio singles.   No real rhyme or reason, these are just the ten singles I could remember at this time I liked, even if for non-musical reasons.

My Top 10

Okay, I suppose I'll take a crack at this. I'm just going to do top 10 tracks of the year rather than albums, since apparently I'm too ADD to listen to full albums anymore, and there just haven't been that many full-lengths to get me too excited of late. So in no particular order:

Your top 10 for 2013

C'mon, y'all, lez do this. No pondering / overconsideration; it's just us.

I'll embarrass myself first.

10 - Surgical Steel by Carcass
Yes, it's that good. Yes, I will be going to see them when they come through. Even though I didn't really like that Gorguts record all that much. Yes, all that review stuff that says "it's like Swansong never happened" is at least 95% correct.

9 - Sunbather by Deafheaven
This record deserves some but not all of the accolades heaped on it this year. I like black metal and shoegazer, so this is right up my alley, but I can see why a lot of black metal purists are butthurt about it. Then again, those people are dicks.

8 - Black Friday by Big Black Cloud
Portland band. This label (Eolian Empire) has been releasing all sorts of good heavy stuff this year, most of which I liked, notably Honduran's Street Eagles. Black Friday is so manic, noisy, dissonant, but still punk... I feel like Sonic Youth were never really all that punk. They were always an art band; if they'd been punker, this may have been what they would have sounded like.

7 - Summon the Faithless by Lord Dying
Another Portland band. These dudes are resurrecting pure thrash but throwing in just a little bit of stoner metal on top of it. Tight as hell, riffs are enormous, fun as shit to watch. I like the sound of their demo a little more than this record (less "produced"), but this is still a damn fine metal record.

6 - Soma by Windhand
Holy shit this is heavy doom. Probably the heaviest doom since Dopethrone. Really. There's a real sense of dynamics and wisdom to this record, unlike a lot of doomy bands going right now. Contrasting example: We are Here by Blackout. That record is good, but Soma just blows it out of the water. No contest. The Blackout record feels like a sludgy doomy record that's good and raw, but at the end of it you don't feel like they really told you anything; they're just riding a wave of FUCK YEAH. This record feels like it told you something at the end.

5 - mBv by My Bloody Valentine
Yeah, there's a little bit of nostalgia factor here. The first side of this just makes you feel all warm and cuddly like Loveless has returned. For a record built up as much as this... that's pretty impressive. Unfortunately the DnB shit on the second side is pretty cringeworthy, otherwise this would have been higher.

4 - Manifest Decimation by Power Trip
This band sounds like Chuck Schuldiner playing tastefully short guitar solos and singing while backed by Hell Awaits-era Slayer (but with better songwriting). This should make you want to run not walk to their bandcamp page.

3 - Tomorrow's Harvest by Boards of Canada
After living with it for a while, I think this manages to recapture a lot of the wonderment and haziness of Music Has the Right without resorting to the same sonic exact palette. It's a different sort of feeling than Music Has the Right, though. They've grown up with us? The last 25 minutes of the record are some of their best shit ever, I think.

2 - Abandon All Life by NAILS
This is, no question, the heaviest band out there right now. Period. It's a sonic assault that still holds up to multiple listens. It's insanely well-crafted. I could write a lot more effusion regarding how crazy awesome this band is.

1 - Circumambulation by True Widow
Shouldn't be a surprise to anyone who's been looking at my tumblr. I am fully head over heels for this band and have been for about 2 years now. They kept the essence of what makes them good, but evolved it subtly. This record is creepier than their others, in a good David Lynch kind of way.

Honorable mentions: General Dome by Buke and Gase; Amen by Death Engine; Run the Jewels; EDM B2.

Kickass rereleases: Touch and Go reissued almost the entire Big Black catalog on vinyl (no Atomizer or Songs About Fucking, but everything else).
