Bibio - Ovals & Emeralds
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.

Bibio – Carosello Ellitico


Washed Out – Phone Call


Hudson Mohawke – No One Could Ever


Leo 123 – Silvo

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?

Thanks, Mat

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.
