Everything and Nothing / Re: Vinyl Reissues vs Originals
« Last post by Scott M2 on Today at 12:57:01 PM »
I tried a little googling on digitally cut vinyl and found some long discussions on the Steve Hoffman forum and such. Apparently some European pressing plants ask for the masters as Redbook CDrs. Also, when you think about it, for quite a while people were mixing to DAT tapes anyway, so while vinyl may "warm" the mix, it's still a 16bit 44.1 or 48 source.

This is just stuff I hadn't really thought about before - I'm not a vinyl nut - though I have a wall of it. I currently like to spend my money on SACDs, DVD-As or Blu-rays with surround mixes. That's my personal audio treat. BTW - I highly recommend Diatonis for excellent ambient music surround mixes.

pre ordered Motionfield - Luftrum so listening to the download. This is excellent. Melody orientated, chilled ambient with subtle and appropriate beats. A real cracking album.

Now playing - Picture Palace Music - ReVision. TDs Thorsten Quaeshning's band. Good stuff.

Certainly agree about "Lilith" pressings.

Bought two of their Tangerine Dream releases. The "Mysterious Semblance at the Strand of Nightmares" vinyl was very poor quality. Surface noise was obtrusive for a brand new record. Doubt I would buy any of that labels output again and it certainly wasn't cheap either. Having said that their other TD release "Run To Vegas" was fine.

I mainly buy second hand vinyl......70s Prog addiction :) However all the other brand new pressing I own are excellent, especially the Boards Of Canada stuff.

> I wondered if anybody had any suggestions about what might be covered in a discussion like this?

APK's reference to Davies is a good one because, although some of the themes, titles, and whatnot are Lovecraftian, the music doesn't always strike me as dark per se. I sometimes wonder if it is too easy to play into the dark side of Lovecraft when making music rather than emphasizing the mystery or the sense of other-worldliness. 

Here is something I like that is clearly inspired by Lovecraft, but not sinister or overly dark in its atmosphere--one of my favorites from 2013: The Ashes of Piemonte - Datura Notes https://twicerememberedtwiceremoved.bandcamp.com/album/datura-notes
