Yeah skeletal is a pretty apt description from what I remember.

Songs is one of my favorite albums ever, also have a lot of love for everything else he's produced. weird but good that Vulture says that the new album is coming out in October. I remember seeing pictures of instruments he had built for it over a year ago...? has anyone else tried making sense of his PhD thesis? / does anybody else remember his blog from over a decade ago? I had whatever bits i was able to find of it in the Internet Archive saved onto one of my previous computers. lots of insight into his personal life and mental illness issues and his opinions about art and such.

According to a setlist my friend snagged at the Providence show, compared against that tracklist, the new songs he's been playing live are Touchdown and Pets.

love this

every time i remember his music my mind reduces it a lot to be something very simplistic and i go back to re-listen because surely it's just some guy who can't sing and some elementary synth shit but am always delighted w/ how intuitive and well done it is and just plain listenable.

his last album is one of the few that i forget i have on repeat because it just goes down so easy as good music that i can dip in and out of because it works at 6 feet and 60
