Title: Anna Meredith
Post by: Dirty Boy on October 30, 2019, 11:23:24 AM
Has a new record out called FIBS and it's sprightly and bouncy and batshit complex in equal measure. It's one of the best things i've heard this year and it's the kind of 'pop' music i can get on board with ie: restless and wonky as fuck.

She started out as a contemporary classical composer, but her more recent work has more of an electronic (albeit still multi-genred) angle.

New stuff:
Paramour (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjmZLaymJU8)
Inhale Exhale (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05o1gMSEOLo)

Nautilus (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vajhs2wBeCU) from her first album

I'm just getting to grips with the orchestral stuff, but i was highly impressed by Five Telegrams (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RsWMKO_IpKo) when i caught it on't Proms - 25 minutes long, but worth sticking with.

Have heard her name, but not "checked her out". Shall do so forthwith...!

Do it Nev (and make sure you like it Nev).

I've also been going mad for The Gasman lately and little else is getting a look in. Bloody addicted to that shit i am.

Haha, me too - going through a massive Gasman phase as we speak. The wife and child are away for the weekend in a couple of weeks and I fully plan on devoting it entirely to The Gasman because I still feel like I've barely scratched the surface...

yeah I enjoyed fibs, I thought the cover was a bit boring though compared to the album inside. (and the surreal videos)

It's an interesting idea, but thus far i'm not really feeling the new Meredith. Think i prefer the longer more orchestrated pieces.

The Gasman however, can do little wrong whether he's doing cheapo rave/video game nostalgia/Neo-Classical or a combination of all of the above. He's remarkably consistent.
