ÅRSLISTE: 2011 according to Laurel Halo

December 19 2011

“If 2012 is the Apocalyptic Not-A-Fine-Day, then 2011 was the pre-game: where everyone’s participated in a U/Livestream session hiding out from hurricanes or riots or their responsibility and instead, intensely feeling or believeing something happening on the screen, DJs or protesters doing it for them, ‘long lost’ culture relics on YouTube or the brilliantly shaded Soundcloud waveform.

Music’s increasingly ‘hyper-‘ in 2011 – hyper-sentimentality replacing pain for a similar sensation, hyper-affectation replacing old music for new, hyper-mystery making anyone with a dick and a laptop a badman (aka music without a heart will always lose).

I found joy in the DIS Trance War that led dozens of producers to make their best actual (or approximations of) Trance anthems, Nick Weiss’s winning track using a Gabba kick and a sealing, peaceful message (“Can you really win a war? Where are the children? Who’s gonna teach them, tonight…”). Also in HDBoyz’ N’Sync-circa-1998 appropriation, Far Side Virtual and Replica‘s cutting up of our commercial brains and the grace of Julia Holter’s Tragedy.

LED contact lenses and dream scanning, Arab Spring, Occupy and other riots worldwide, politicians becoming increasingly idiotic (“We have to stop blaming the banks”) and loops again taking focus all dance on the periphery of 2011’s antiparticipatory collective conscience, gearing us up for what we can say musically and what we can do IRL in 2012.” (Laurel Halo, i Wire januar)

Mixtape: Oneohtrix Point Never

December 16 2011

Oneohtrix Point Never (Daniel Lopatin) har lavet et mixtape, der mere eller mindre indkapsler den bølge af nye synthesizer-ambient musik, han selv er én af bannerførerne for. Der er en bred linie fra moderne kompositionsmusik, ambient og drone, avantgarde og til popmusikken på vej mod musikken i dag – og grundlæggende bliver Passive/Aggressive ved med at skrive om den, fordi det er i vores perspektiv er den nye musik, der har haft størst betydning i løbet af de sidste tre år. Læs mere om os og Oneohtrix Point Never.

Trackliste + download her:

Alvin Lucier – “I Am Stting In A Room (Taster’s Choice Edit)”
John Oswald – “Urge”
Dopplereffekt – “Z Boson”
Tim Hecker – “Untitled (3)”
Vidna Obmana & Asmus Tietchens – “4th Theme”
Frank Zappa – “While You Were Art II”

Mixtape: Wild Nothing

Mixtape: Cloudland 1991-1995

November 29 2011

A walk down memory lane, en bedre fejlvisende floskel kan jeg ikke finde for det her mixtape, fordi y’know vi var ikke levende reflekterede lyttende væsener i 1991. Det danske pladeselskab Cloudland udgav fra 1991 til 1995 i alt 17 album, og det er vel det nærmeste, man kommer de amerikanske uafhængige pladeselskaber på dette tidspunkt – og se! hvilke bands.

Støjende indiebands! 18th Dye, som fik en kort reunion med “Amorine Queen”. Fantastiske How Do I med blandt andre trommeslager Anders Remmer, som godt nok nåede at udgive plader på to selskaber (der lukkede), inden de nåede til Cloudland. Trains and Boats and Planes med Nikolaj Nørlund, og Rhonda Harris’ første album. Greene med Olesen-Olesen. Lyden af guitarerne i 1993. Ikke alt er high-class, men det er en god slentretur.

Trackliste (mixtapet er kronologisk):

1. 18th Dye – Whole Wide World
2. Trains and Boats and Planes – Henrik
3. Trains and Boats and Planes – (I’m Glad It’s) Soon
4. Greene – Love Made Me a Better Man
5. How Do I – You Know Nothing, You Tried To Hard
6. Trains and Boats and Planes – A Wake
7. 18th Dye – Ray
8. How Do I – How I Wanna Feel
9. Versus – River
10. 18th Dye – Poolhouse Blue
11. Murmur – Myrioapod
12. Versus – Crazy
13. Rhonda Harris – So Happy
14. Port Friendly – The Sweetest Girl
15. Greene – She’s Radiant

Introducing: Celeste/Inner Garden

Blog November 28 2011

Synthesizerkærlighed med hypnagogiske kvaliteter, forvrænget maskinel støj og synkoperede beats. Besatte, forvrængede og synkoperede videoer. Det eneste, jeg kan regne ud, er, at projekterne Inner Garden og Celeste er danske, fordi det er fra bloggen Vibrant Foam. Lidt ligesom Emeralds eller Oneohtrix Point Never.
