i thought xen was really good.
is still my shit. xen was decent.
wicked, i'm excited about this one. they don't give a date for it's release though?
xen was pretty good but the stuff he's released since has been better for the most part - more focussed and direct. the live show at hackney st johns earlier the year probably my favourite show of the year so far also.
it wasn't there earlier
Arca bends my brain in all the best ways.
great album. much better than the first for me
How Wolf Eyes are couple of tracks are.
In all honesty while a perfectly decent record, its not the amazing mind blowing album that I know Arca is capable of. A lot of this stuff is just good soundscaping or strange intensive sounds. Its the same problem as late career Amon Tobin really. Still its pretty good, with some genuine moments of awe/beauty. A big improvement on Xen but I hope that he will improve on this.
Only because based on some of the stuff I have seen on his soundcloud he is clearly capable of something really special.
Late entry AOTY for me...
It's almost like an exercise in exposure. Like accepting the difficult, jarring sounds until you're comfortable enough to call them beautiful.
