    Glad you like her stuff sabrage (obsession is a good thing, right?)

    I certainly think being on Hyperdub has helped her get noticed more. Not that she was really unknown before, it's just the mere fact of releasing on Hyperdub gets you more press.

    Be interesting to see if she sticks with them for a while or if this is just a one album thing. I get a bit giddy at the thought of her remixing and collaborating with some of the people Hyperdub have on their books.

    UK Garage is most definitely valid as a genre descriptor. I hated it when the first wave happened, but will happily take so solid crew over almost anything modern now.

    Something that was introduced to me recently, described as a 15 piece gypsy folk band from birmingham led by an old guy called Grandad:

    The person who posted this on Facebook usually puts out fairly horrible clubby tracks, but I was bored enough to click. I was somewhat surprised by what came next! I then realised that both poster and band were Swedish, and all made sense again on some level.

    All right, I want an admission from you lot, because I can't be the only idiot that does this too often. Buy an album, give it a cursory listen, and then end up setting it aside and being distracted before you can properly absorb it. This results in coming back to the album many months later, realising it's awesome and hating yourself.

    All the Laurel Halo talk prompted me to go back and have a proper listen to a collaboration album she was part of and gosh is it just the most beautiful thing. I feel more than a little stupid that I sat with this on my shelf for so long without listening to it properly. On the plus side it's like a brand new album I didn't expect to have.



    Anybody else guilty of this? Might just be me with the attention span of gnat.

    I'd never heard of Laurel Halo until I read about her on the previous page, then, weirdly, I found myself at lunch with her yesterday. I'm not intending to name-drop (although I am!)- we barely spoke - but it seemed remarkable in terms of coincidence anyway.

    I like that you all seem to like the kind of things that I like.

    The Canadian rave scene was heavily influenced by England, but we had a bit of an identity crisis when it came to naming the genres. We prefixed "UK" on a lot of names, which worked colloquially, but doomed us to wondering questions like "what do they call brazil nuts in Brazil?"

    We have UK hardcore (an umbrella term here, known in England as freeform or trancecore), UK garage (Canadians pronounce it "garAHdge" while Brits call it "GERRidge"), UK hard house (I think Brits call it "hardbag"), UK NRG (Brits call it NU-NRG or something.. the likes of Captain Tinrib and Weirdo), etc.

    It got even more confusing when our rave scene came into its own and started producing homegrown music, yet in the spirit of our English forefathers. "Canadian UK garage" and somesuch.

    I really never cared much for Hans Zimmer, but the Inception OST is just great.

    I've been listening to this Russian band "Sleep Dealer" whole day. Ambient post-rock or whatever it's called... it's good. Really good.

    Sleep Dealer is good stuff. Worth checking out Russian Circles Enter and Pelican The Fire in Our Throats...for similar goodness if you haven't already.

    I've been chillin' with Grouper/Inca Ore today.
