My take on replicr, 2019; a resounding "MEH". It sounds like a soundtrack to a movie I've seen, kinda liked...but never want to see again. I say, put down the laptops, and pick the instruments back up.
The vibe of replicr, 2019 is certainly great, like you're listening to a movie. It's very unlike their previous work, but you can't really blame a musician for experimenting. replicr is certainly an experience worth having.
it's like your heart is a person, and 65dos is another person, and they punch your heart so hard it hurts and it breaks into pieces but at the end they pull the pieces back together and hug you and you cry and it's 4 am
I totally feel what you describe, it reminds me of my own experiences with this band, good old times… They are one of the 3 post-rock bands I got to know almost 13 years ago that instantly made me fall in love with this kind of music. 65dos’s first 3 albums had an enormous impact on my emotional state back then, and still have, just less strongly, whenever I decide to return to one of these albums from time to time. However, I’m seriously pissed that they haven’t released a new standalone album for fkkkng 6 years by now… XD
I can relate to that, besides, listening to post-rock seems perfectly suitable for feeling nostalgia because it makes one‘s thoughts associatively travel through memories. Even though it might sound a bit corny: What’s gone is gone, good or bad, but the music remains, thus remain memoires associated with the music. Although it sometimes feels sadomasochistic, I do like these journey (as well), one of my reasons for loving this kind of music.
I lost interest in this band after "One Time for All Time" (I enjoy the first two albums just nicely, even though I don't listen to them that much anymore). Since they'll be around soon and I'll get a chance to go see them, I should probably stop appreciating the visual landscape of No Man's Sky for a while and focus on its audio landscape instead.
I was never much of a fan of this band until I got No Man's Sky. The loose, improv-feel of some of the more atmospheric pieces just adds a whole new level of enjoyment for the game. The more composed pieces feel better than anything I've heard on their albums. Probably one of the better game soundtracks ever.
