Not big on saying "ALBUM OF THE YEAR!" type stuff, but, hey, this is the ALBUM OF THE YEAR! Doesn't seem like many Dntel fans agree, and if someone said to me "listen to some guy who liked Aphex Twin and Autechre and shit doing tracks with sensitive indie darlings" i'd probably smack them one... but nonetheless, I've found myself faithfully following this guy's output under all his different guises and I've ended up enjoying this even more than his last effort as Dntel, Life Is Full of Possibilities. The sounds are astonishing and for the most part I think the songs keep up - I never expected to like a Bright Eyes track, but breakfast in bed is one of my faves here. Likewise while I sold a Mia Doi Todd CD I stupidly bought within a month or so of buying it Rock My Boat is amazing. As a whole the album is really adventurous (consider the different connotations between that and "experimental") and makes me want to trot out hackneyed journo speak about breathing new life into something. …

My buddy Andrew comes through with a bit of a ripper this time. (For those outside the Antipodes that means it's good.) It's stylistically very similar to what he was up to with In Camera, but the overall results are that much more assured. Basically it could be called trip-hop if you think that means freaky hip-hop instrumentals for home listening rather than lackluster lounge music... I still hear some DJ Krush nods, but I don't think it's just cos I know Andy that I hear a fairly hefty breadth of influence coming into play here... some really straight-up pleasant bits among the moody moments and the occasional ornery scrapes and clanks.

Everything from the Tu M'P3 net label
Man, what a mission. The Flash interface makes you click through to every track individually, which makes sense insofar as the tracks here are supposed to be soundtracks to images. …
26 Apr 2007, 14:55 by jetjag1995 seems like a long time ago... One of the first public performances of music involving me is now available for download... a live-to-air performance. The band's called MonkeyShuttle and I'm sure they're about to top the airplay lists. ;) The "band" members now make music as Aquaboogie, group five and Jet Jaguar (me, obviously).
We've called the set 'Artificial Intelligentsia', and the cover and title are a fairly obvious nod to the Warp Records Artificial Intelligence compilations. It was a toss-up between 'Artificial Intelligentsia' and 'Natural Stupidity'.
Here's the label page about the release.
The write-ups were a lot of fun to do. I found it hard to contain my modesty, but think I kept it pretty understated.
