lads new holly herndon album 'proto' out may 10








link to video for new single 'eternal'



her last album was total jaws on floors bangin trax and shite i never heard anyone do before or since. since then she has given birth to some kinda artificial intelligence that she thinks is her daughter and is apparently her main collaborator on this album. think it's gonna be really good.

here is what she said about the last track released from the album, 'godmother'





link to the song she is talking about there




she ought to be careful making mad robots and that but so long as she is having fun that's fine i suppose. anyway lads gonna be great i reckon.

Meant to mention Eternal in the 'last track you played five times in a row' thread. Amazing stuff.

Yeah, it's brilliant. I'm really looking forward to this, especially as it's clearly something she's put a lot of effort into and isn't just going to be Platform mk II (I love Platform but the more innovation the better).

Rejected 'too scary' album cover.

The godmother cover was unnerving

Out today!

Just 'avin a listen now while I grate some garlic bulbs and Im personally finding it way more alluring than her previous worm which I found interesting but could only listen to for short periods of time. Really struggle with choppy electronic music; cant listen to Gold Panda for the same reason.

Only a few songs in but just really innovative moody electronic with a lot more vocals than i remember from the other albums (if there were even any?)

Second track sounds like 2 songs playing at once.

Great!

why?

I have one of those tiny graters about the size of an infant mouse...just some recipes it more or less has the same effect as mincing it so I grate it. If you got a problem with that I suggest we take it INside

Second track sounds like 2 songs playing at once.

Great!

On further listening that is what I struggle with with her stuff; dynamically its very relentless and just assaults you but in a way that gets a bit tiring. I have no issue with either loud or busy music but this defintely feels like a bit much at times and can get a bit draining

Some fully grown mice stay the same size as what you're on about. The dormouse for example. Why didn't you just say "dormouse" instead of wasting our time conjuring up a mental image of an unspecified breed of mouse in infancy? This whole debacle is making me question you as a person to be honest.

I put this album on my walkman phone and went out in the sunshine to listen to it, without distraction. But unfortunately I ended up listening to the first album by The Nice instead.

There's aways tomorrow.

Was 'White Of An Eye' was co-credited to Chris and Cosey because they sat down and co-wrote it, or was it because it too close to/Sampled October Love Song?

This is fucking great. It seems like the kind of thing that Bjork should be doing instead of pissing around with flutes.
