i haven't stopped being able to listen to reverse chronological order pt 1 since i realized it sounds like standing outside a broken phone booth

also i like imagining brenda and eddie from the reverse chronological series being becky and steven from twin peaks season 3

Image

also also i love that there's a hot couch line on pt 2:

remember when eddie was giving her plenty
of reasons to wish he was gone?
asleep on the couch with some lines he'd cut out
and the TV still on.
a flickering light that persists through the night, and an audible hum
ocarina of time droning endlessly on from the dusk until dawn.

good review by P4k. it's right about his use of breakbeats... totally not my thing at all which explains why i can't get into it.

if he didn't clear samples then he's not going to put it on spotify

in particular, this keeps reminding me of certain moments on the EG opening ceremony mix. musically i don't hear a lot of new ground covered but it seems more polished slash laboured over than the previous DG releases. i'm a happy boy.

yeah i had the passing thought that the taylor cover in particular might be keeping him from promoting this in a more high profile way

idk on the other hand it seems like jb has p good reasons for wanting to stay out of the spotlight a bit, which i respect, given that the music press is essentially a machine for generating cults of personality

it's def true that material benefits are 100% justified though. this album is maybe the most affecting thing i've heard or seen about the opioid crisis yet. it's a bummer idk

i really don't get any vibe that he has music industry aspirations anymore besides making music he likes and releasing it

which i think is pretty cool tbh

in the q&as too it's implied that some of the decisions that made this record unique (like the pitch shifted vocals) were made after deciding there was no reason to try to make money

i've just received a transmission from my spiritual leader, the mother of all music, Qveen Herby. she says.....well, this is most unusual.....she says breakbeats are hereafter to be referred to as "brooksbeats". unexpected surprise for today but i think it's in our interest to incorporate this into our vocabulary at once, or else the harvest will be disappointing again this year.

The beatz are essential IMO but I could also totally go for an ambient/beatless version as an extra, like a Ruin 2 sorta thing.
