RE: Your favourite electronica albums?

I notice Boards Of Canada mentioned a few times. I had a listen to a tune the other night, and was reminded of SubArachnoid Space. Check 'em out Smile

One of my favourite electronic artists, Plastikman, has just released a new album, EX, recorded as a live set at the Guggenheim. Awesome stuff.

I like the album F.U.S.E. - Dimension Instrusion, which as you probably know, is also Richie Hawtin.

RE: Your favourite electronica albums?

I was fortunate enough to find and donate to the Caustic Window kickstarter campaign, and I downloaded the Caustic Window LP yesterday and it is a great, lost album of music from Richard D. James. The actual pressing is now on ebay fetching crazy bids

Resurrecting this thread

Resurrecting this thread because my excitement is mounting at the thought of hearing the following acts live this Friday...

Wrangler

Scanner

Gazelle Twin

Matthew Collings

http://www.glasgowconcerthalls.com/events/pulse-with-wrangler-scanner-gazelle-twin-and-matthew-colllings/ Dance 4

And because with the exception of Scanner they don't seem to have been mentioned in this thread (How an electronica thread can get to three pages without mention of John Foxx or Cabaret Voltaire is beyond me Unknw).

I'm loving the Wrangler album "LA Spark" and most everything else that Benj (Ben Edwards) has been doing over the last few years - most notably as part of John Foxx & the Maths - pure analogue synth magic.

I've just got into Autechre a bit. I have Incunabula, which I think is great, and I bought Exai today, which I'm finding a little harder to get into.

Caribou - Our Love (2014)

Caribou - Our Love (2014)

My favourite song from the album.

Listen, and understand. That terminator is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.

After advice

I'm still after some advice. I've recently bought the Autechre album "Incunabula", which I really like, and I'm a fan of the Boards of Canada album "Music Has The Right To Children". Can any of you recommend something very similar?

I want it quite chilled, but not overly so, instrumental, totally electronic, melodic, but still quirky and interesting. 

Any help would be much appreciated.

I've given up trying to find anything like BoC - the nearest I found was Past Is Prologue by Tycho, but even when I listen to that, it's just not BoC - they lack the darker side of BoC, and it's a tad too 'jolly'. So I've given up. I've even starting playing Campfire Headphase more in order to get some sort of 'fresh' BoC fix...

But a week ago or so, while I was searching BoC on a certain auction site, a few other artists made an appearance, so I thought I'd check one of them out. 

Thomas Koner.

Now this is far from the quirky, beat driven stuff we are looking for, but if you're familiar with the last track of Tomorrow's Harvest (Semena Mertvykh - Russian for 'seeds of the dead'), it'll give you an idea of what this guy does. Haunting, eerie synth tracks that, while a little dark, are also quite relaxing too. If someone would've played me one of his tracks and said it was BoC, I'd have believed them. 

We may be looking for different things - you want more of that type of music - I want something as close to BoC as possible - but as I say, I've given up.

This is a list I recommended

This is a list I recommended to a friend a few years ago, so I've more or less copied and pasted it here. I've taken out one or two that aren't relevant, and there may well be one or two more I've missed. I'm not saying all these will be suitable, but these are the electronic artists I've found over a fairly long period of Last.FM and Internet radio listening to discover new artists that I've liked enough to buy to own.

Aes Dana,  Anomalous Disturbances (Inside),  Bluetech,  Boris   Carusella (Carusella EP),  Carbon Based Lifeforms,  DJ Food,  Deadly Avenger (Deep Red),  FC Kahuna (Machine Says Yes),  FNDMNTL (Subduction),  Flying Lotus (Los Angeles),  Funki Porcini,  gROUSe (We Want To Be Loved),  Hands Upon Black Earth (Hands Upon Black Earth),  Induce (Cycle),  Isis (Celestial),  If These Trees Could Talk (Above The Earth, Below The Sky),  Kalpataru Tree,  Komodo (Frozen In Motion),  Lost Balance (Alone In Multitudes),  Numatic Soul (Clean Machine),  Peace Orchestra (Peace Orchestra),  Philipp Weigl,  Rena Jones (Indra's Web),  Saru (Downtempo Dojo),  She (Coloris),  Solar Fields (Leaving Home),  Submotion Orchestra (Finest Hour, and Finest Hour Remixes),  Sync24 (Source),  Team Sleep,  Tosca (Suzuki),  The Crystal Method (Legion Of Bloom),  Track & Field (In Search Of),  Vesna (Snow Sences),  Warp Technique (Make Animals Happy),  Welder (Vines & Stream).

Apologies for the stupid

Apologies for the stupid formatting on this site - the relevant album titles are in brackets.
