I tried to listen to their new album and I found it
deeply underwhelming.

Mind you've I've never liked Plaid. Too prim, too fussy.

Yes, I said that.

Jivver once told me that Plaid uses an Omnichord to
come up with their unusual chord and melody movements and
I've never been able to un-hear it.

"Some Omnichord musicians will play the instrument as a
keytar, by strapping the instrument on both ends and playing
it as if it were an electric guitar
"

If Plaid do this live then maybe I'll get back into them.

I remember once Jivver called Beaumont Hannant a bit of a
dick and up until then I'd kind of liked what I'd heard of
his, but after that damning judgement I could never
listen to him again.

And never will

"Ops" from the latest Plaid album just came on on Spotify
shuffle (or whatever,) and I enjoyed it. In the longer term
I don't know what this means, and whether this changes
anything. All I will say, for now, is that I enjoyed
it. The track "Ops".

Apart from Jivver, obvs, Luke Vibert was the nicest IDMer I
ever met. An impression I am led to believe shared by many.

plaid is awesome, first row, heavyweight idm masters. they
had some bland tracks and album(s) in the last years but so
did aphex and co.

i got spotify recently and started listening to some new
tunes and there are some pretty good ones. me like

all their songs sounds so clear, it's like their trademark,
distortion would ruin it for them.

((but the vocals in "synthesize" could actually represent
how distortion could work in a plaid track))

just re-listening to the nts set and it's very good
indeed... especially enjoying the 5/4 track around the 20min
mark, mixed in perfectly too. tricky to pull off so well

i never did well with time signatures. i can dance to this
set, i can dance to venetian snares, but i couldn't actually
tell you what time signature any of it's in. if i sit there
and focus, yes, i can probably figure it out... but, i
dunno, all the EpicMegatracker stuff has been like: take
some noise, take a drum loop, pitch it and slice and chop
until it fits a tempo, and you wind up with a drum loop that
loops perfectly at 165bpm but where the beats fit are not
4/4. if it didn't blind me i'd run everything double-time to
increase that aspect of it. instead, i'll just use sample
offset and such to squeeze in between the grid lines

so, yeah. "they use odd time signatures" has never really
been a selling-point for me, for any band.

errata: the first time i "grokked" an odd time signature was
the verse of "money" by pink floyd, my freshman year of
college
