Ford & Lopatin+BlitheField+Reuber+CVLTS

Posted by Jakub

Oneohtrix Point Never’s other project Games has changed their name to Ford & Lopatin which I can appreciate more just for google search purposes since I hate not being able to find music by musicians I like. As for sounds in Channel Pressure i’m floored, you get these glimpses of Dire Straits guitars marrying these pitch bent red headed step child synths that no one would have touched 10 years ago, love it.

I love summer because all of this field recording based material starts to thaw out and has room to breathe like this newer artist Blithe Field, makes you want to go back to some older Bibio.

I dug really deep for this older Reuber track, he’s all over the place when it comes to style/genre but this one always stayed with me.

I thought CVLTS was some rock band that my ears probably couldn’t handle but after hearing this track I was put in my place instead i’m treated with kindness from distant dreamy reverb.

Channel Pressure will be one of the best albums this year. It’s music for someone who has synth ADD… love all the sounds going on. Perfect.

Listening to the Blithe Field I remembered some guys you should check too (if you haven’t yet): Praezisa Rapid 3000. Here’s a link:

They have 2 great eps and the cover for their last ep they managed to do something original.

Btw, this is my first comment here but I’ve been following this blog for months and I love it ;) keep it coming.

thanks for the tip on blithe field. just got a bunch of free downloads from his bandcamp page, and it’s lovely summer music. its also made me revisit all that old bibio stuff, which is never a bad thing.
