The CD and download are out on bandcamp now.  I received my CD over the weekend and I must say this is the best Redshift album to date.  The production is amazing.  Hope you have a good pair of speakers to handle the monstrous bass...

I have that SETI disc.  Good (outer) space ambient.

The two Omni Vu Deity aka Ishq discs Chris just mentioned can be purchased from me for $15 each.  These are new, sealed copies I ended up with due to a shipping mixup.  I'm forwarding the funds I get back to Ishq so they don't lose out on the funds.  These are limited to 50 copies and already sold out far as I know.  Message me if interested.  Also have them up on Discogs if you'd rather go that route. 

I ordered this immediately after reading and sampling it on Bandcamp.  Always thought the Tide Pool should get a full CD release, so nice to know it's happening!

New aglaia is always a welcome sight, yet these two don't sound much different than their output the last few years.  In any event, I'm surprised the CDs are out in October.  Usually it's the tail end of the year for HSL discs.

Soundtrack to a stabbing?  Hmm okay... :o

Anyone keen on Eno's Shutov Assembly and Neroli should check out New Composers "Boring Music" on Psychonavigation label.  A more traditional ambient work than the NC and Eno "Smart" album.  Lovely stuff.

Everything and Nothing / Re: Casting little kids in sick violent movies

I should clarify:  I LIKE some sick violent movies, if it's a quality film with technically admirable qualities.  My point in this thread though is not whether I liked or not, the finished product, but the idea of having small children act in some of them. 

The horror film where the little girl kills her mother very violently is "Infernal.". I really enjoyed it and it scared me, which is rare (as most of these films are just dumb and not scary).  What upset me is they didn't have the murder off camera or a fast cut.  The girl was whacking a dummy in the head with a sledgehammer while blood spurts everywhere, including the girl.

The playing with loaded guns film is "Cop Car.". I thought it was a mediocre film but it's gotten lots of rave reviews.  Kevin Bacon stars.

Well playing devil's advocate, a lot of porn IS evil.   It's not just procreation, it's violent, misogynistic, garbage.  This is another topic altogether though and I'm not sure exactly how it fits with the topic I raised.

I cannot believe this trend of putting small children in movies I would never even let them watch if they were my kids.  Saw a horror film recently with a cute little six year old girl.  They had her enact a murder in which she bludgeons her mother to death with a sledgehammer when the mother is in bed sleeping.  Tonight I saw "Cop Car" with Kevin Bacon, which has gotten glowing reviews.  Am I the only one who thought it sick to cast two little boys who play with loaded guns like they're squirt guns??  I'm outraged at the parents of these actors, the film makers, and the studios that release such films.   :(

No but I listened to Disc 4 tonight and it was awesome.  The first 20 minutes kind of drifts nowhere but it picks up with a beautiful mood.  Might be my fave now of the set.

I wouldn't buy it because of the awful title  ;D

Any news on the next Hypnos release?

You can get a new copy at Groove Unlimited for $23.  Therefore don't buy it on eBay or Discogs.

Redshift is pretty much only Mark Shreeve these days.  Wouldn't be surprised if the new one is all Mark.

How do you know the "CD sales decline does not create much motivation for Steve"?  I don't think you'd know without asking him directly.  Same with the new vs old  sound.  I agree, I like the old better but how do you know the reason for the change?  Is it by intentional design, new gear, or..

I don't understand the last two paragraphs of the post above.   Angry and wish hadn't seen this thread?  Why??

Just saw a member comment.  No details.  Groove Unlimited has the CD album for sale.  So you don't have to drop $50 or more for a copy.  Please advise anyone if you have details about this reissue.

First impressions of this 4 disc set:

The artwork and packaging is awesome on this. 

I would describe the music as a cross between Mystic Chords and Slow Heat.. it's "quiet" electronic music that's actually pretty f**kn loud.  Huge massive walls of drones ebb and flow with spacious modular oscillations weaving in and out.

Disc 1:  amazing track.  Best of the set.  I like how it morphs into something else towards the conclusion.  A really inspired piece.

Discs 2 &  3:  a little samey, not as good as disc 1.  Some melodic motifs but overall a lot of abstract drifting.

Disc 4:  this sounds like looping the tail end of a track above so it's more like a billowy aftermath of previous intensity.  A bit boring but these are just first impressions.
