New Bibio music coming from all angles, man just when I getting into Vignetting the Compost then Ambivalence Avenue came along and blew my mind and now a new EP? life is good.
A new Washed Out EP is out as well, this Phone Call track is on repeat every day in my room, I think this might be his best song yet, it doesn’t count on a slow tempo and gets me excited about what else this guy can do.
I hope HudMo starts producing Top 40 because he’ll add a fun aspect to the whole stale genre, his snare hits have a funny sound though, like some cartoony feel to them I can’t put my finger on it, either way it unique, I also like how he gets his synths to sound like a cassette player is eating his tape.
I got to hang out with Leo 123 while Eliot Lipp and Mux Mool we’re in town, a really funny guy and knows his synths really well too. He has that Disco/Hip Hop fusion sound going, loopy yet a ton of good synth playing over it all which I can always respect.

Maybe the HudMo snares cartoony because they’re pitched up (and occasionally down)?
Glad to see more Washed Out material, I’ve really been digging his style in the 80’s/Tape genre

man i loves some bibio but that ep is super uneven.. half the tracks reflect the level of genius i’ve come to expect but that 7 minute piece sounds like he just left a tape player next to a merry-go-round. still happy to support him though..

Washed Out = best new artist of the yr, hands down in my book
I was reading a thread on WATMM where everyone was talking all kinds of smack on HudMo, and then someone finally came in and held him down, I was gonna create an account and do it myself if I had to. I too can see this actually doing well at top 40 levels of exposure, but I also seeing it getting completely compromised at the hands of the non-musical decision-makers at that level.

Does anyone know where I can get the Washed Out High Times EP on digital download? I have it on cassette but in all honesty will never get to listen to it as I have no tape deck…. any ideas?

The hudson track is beyond hot. His drum patterns are next generation…i might have to jack that beat.

I got the High Times tape. It’s great to have something cool to listen to in my car. It takes me to a really ambiguous place in time because I’m listening to new music that sounds old on an old medium in an old car, but somehow there is a feeling of the future. Maybe it’s the way the music is produced. The glitchy, hip-hop beats.

not really a fan of any of these. Where did the really chill vibe with music selection go? It’s like the old vibe is gone and a new generation of music is placed on this site. I guess, there is someone new on this blog choosing songs now. I used to come here just to explore new music, but it’s not the same. This is all over the place and 90% of it is not that chill like it used to be. Oh well.
