Roy Harper - Stormcock -- from 1971, Roy's best album IMHO, basically acoustic epic folk, just 4 songs, with Jimmy Page noodling away on one track.

 

Saw this on old ABC show Rock Arena back in the day, that led me to track down the album:

Massive Attack - Heligoland. This would make a good EP. I will be editing/ programming the CD player to skip certain tracks on future playings. I can't say they wasted their time in the studio, nor did they waste their time listening to New Order, but I reserve the right to not waste my time listening to stuff from the cutting room floor.

I am lost on subgenres of electronica. This has been the case ever since the days when Grime was invented as a genre by the English music press and suddenly it became a category. Which happened not long after ambient was claimed as something that had nothing whatsoever to do with Brian Eno, Harold Budd, or Opal Records. My lack of knowledge means plain speaking: "if it goes 'doof doof', or would be heard in a lift or foyer, or requires pills to hold one's attention, I'm not interested".

 

So I avoid things with the word 'jazz' in the category (ambient jazz? acid jazz?), geographical categories (Goan Sounds Direct From Ibiza!), and where the category is synonymous with "comatose" ('trance').

 

This holds the interest, albeit mainly in the first half. Composition and arrangements often have a bit of thought to them, rather than putting sequencers on autopilot:

Autopilot in the second half, alas.

actually, if you’re exploring electronic music, Trance can actually be a super-fun genre. It’s characterised by long, intense builds and epic peaks or “drops”. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea but it’s not mellow like it sounds

Not mellow at all, really.  AS you and I both know.

 

I love trance, and I loved the peak of it in late 90's/2000's.

In fact, I've been wearing my Gatecrasher tee all day today, by pure co-incidence.  🖤

 Yeah, should’ve said ‘not mellow like it sounds’ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
