Still like this one a lot after a few more spins.  It should be said, though, this isn't what I'd call a space drone release, it is more "electronica" sounding, with subtle melodies, samples, glitch elements, and definitely more "upbeat" than anything previous by Oophoi, so if you're looking for "Athlit" part two, this isn't it.  Nevertheless, I think it was an experiment with very good results.  Should surprise a lot of fans.

Wow, that was a very "analytical" review.  Male/female, yin/yang, mental/sensual, you covered it all!  ;)

Just finished my first listen and this is a VERY NICE disc, it should not disappoint those who ordered it. Reminds me very much of Rapoon's excellent "Time Frost" release on GM. Nice mix of glitch, ambient drones, and interesting samples.  Also another wonderful cover artwork here.  Buy without hesitation...

Just got this today...The first track uses a sample from Genesis' "Watcher of the Skies" on the Foxtrot album (??!)  Strangely, no credit given here but there is acknowledgement of a sample taken from Penguin Cafe Orchestra....

I'm disappointed.  I thought there'd be AT LEAST five more releases this year.  ;)

"Flow" is a hella old disc, dude.  Came out in late 90's(?).  Get "Beyond City Light", from several years back, it is much better.

I was just going to mention this one in "now playing" but this is just too great to mention in passing.  My expectations of "Mirrorball" were not that high after the recent Foxx collaboration album with Steve Jansen (ex-Japan, Sylvian, etc.), which was so disappointing (a bunch of ambient noodling with no soul is how'd I'd describe that one).  Guthrie's guitars are chiming and gorgeous as usual, but it's Foxx's Gregorian chant-like vocals a la his "Cathedral Oceans" series that really shine and bring everything together.  A very beautiful, spiritual album, and highly recommended.  Definitely a high position on my Top 10 list for 2009 so far.

To those who "gave up" on Rapoon releases, this one's for you.  I decided not to order this one initially from the short sound samples I had heard, plus the last couple of releases were pretty uneven and too experimental for my taste.  Dark Rivers, however, is one to get: dark, very droney, and much more like his earlier music, but with a more hi-tech (i.e. not "lo-fi") sound.  No weird female vocals, no overuse of spoken samples.  He got it right on this one.

Tonight I picked up the new Harold Budd/Clive Wright CD, "Candylion."  Wow, this one is SO much better than "Song for Lost Blossoms"!  While Blossoms was a good release, some of the tracks were just too long and I felt it could have been a stronger album overall.  Candylion benefits from shorter pieces/more musical ideas, plus it is just stunningly gorgeous music.  This has everything I ever liked about Budd's music.  Some of his best music in years!!!

Well I ordered the new Oophoi without hesitation.  I can't imagine it'll be some kind of glitchfest like a 12k release.  I'm sure it'll have a healthy dose of majestic space drones, glitches or not.  I am super excited about this release!

If I don't get, ahem...relief, soon, I am contemplating doing this.  Besides being illegal/risky healthwise/morally wrong, is there anything good about it?

Hi Stephen,

Ceasing is a great album.  That's nice they compared it to Stalker, although I'd say Ceasing is more outer-space kind of stuff to me whereas Stalker is kind of a "haunted (terrestrial) landscape" disc.  Both are spooky, though!  ;D

You haven't listened to enough, or the right, Namlook yet.  Try 62 Eulengasse, Shades of Orion 2, or 2350 Broadway.  It's all about the detail, dude. ;D

1497
Yes but I don't hear a high level of detail in his music.

 ???

I don't know about "gear whore"--he makes his living doing electronic music, nothing wrong with keeping up with the latest gear, especially if you can afford it and it's part of your trade.  I thought the most interesting point Namlook made was about how his recordings are "experiments," and it's up to people to decide if they like it or not.  (He's often accused of releasing too much music).  Sounds like a healthy attitude to me.  He doesn't sit around and wonder if everybody will like what he's doing or try to please everyone.  Anyways, thanks for posting this, enjoyed it a great deal!  :)

Anyone else having a problem ordering from Hypnos store? I keep getting "internal server error," and I've tried ordering on three different computers, with the same result.
