Post your favorite electronic albums. I'm just getting into electronic music, besides Flying Lotus and Boards of Canada this might be the only other album that has completely blown me away.

I've listened to half of those. I love the books, radiohead and tortoise but could you really call those albums electronic? I guess you could. how different is that bjork album from her others? I couldn't really into homogenic, it gave me an akwkward vibe.

I love that album. Everything else they made is so meh, though.

I've been listening to a lot of stuff on Kompakt lately, but have been sticking to comps. Haven't managed to totally branch out into the albums on it.

The Field is what got me into the label, though.
>>
>>49782260
I'd say listen to his studio albums in order starting with Los Angeles. its chill, wonky, glitchy instrumental hip hop. then you step it up with cosmogramma which alienates a lot of people but if you make it through you will probably love it. until the quiet comes is jazzy like cosmo but slower and more ethereal. listen to that still if you couldn't into cosmo.

It's one of those albums I don't listen to a lot not to get tired of it

>>49782628
It has nice snarerushes and violins.

A few favourites that I've been listening to frequently within the last few months:
Velocity: Design: Comfort - Sweet Trip
Immunity - Jon Hopkins
Black Is Beautiful - Dean Blunt & Inga Copeland
Vocalcity - Luomo
Swim - Caribou
Glass Swords - Rustie

Also, if you're interested in listening to some very early electronic music I highly recommend Popular Electronics by Tom Dissevelt and Kid Baltan.

I don't really like Flying Lotus tbh. His stuff is too indebted to hip-hop. Which is fine, I just prefer hip-hop with actual lyricism (and I don't really like Kendrick Lamar or Snoop Dogg so I am not exactly excited about his new album). And I'm just now discovering how good Boards of Canada actually are - I used to write them off as bland a lot.
>>
>>49783187
Pan Sonic is great stuff, sadly they don't do that violent stuff all that often and the only artist that does similar stuff, Emptyset, may be a little too minimal and abstract in comparison.

It was okay but the brickwalled mastering really disturbed me.

Kesto is impressive. Disc one is very harsh, noisy techno; disc two is a bit similar but less harsh; disc three is eerie and often almost empty, close to lowercase in spirit; disc four is drone. Most of it is good, and the band really had a sound of their own. The thing is, it's so massive I rarely listen to it all in one session — and discs 3 and 4 really require you to be in the right mood. But I recommend it.

>>49786960
Alright, ambient techno then.

Why would you qualify IDM as something you can dance to and point out Boards of Canada not being IDM over Autechre? BoC is way more danceable than ae, but you're taking the genre out of context anyways

Why does everyone have such a fucking problem with the term IDM? Just because it sounds a tad pretentious doesn't mean it can't encompass a large variety of electronic music without getting overtly specific. You could use it to describe ambient techno, drill n bass, experimental techno, even some rave songs.
>>
>>49781481
I mostly only like electronic infused rock/indie, like Radiohead for example.

My favorites are Supercar, iLL, I Monster (all three more electronic indie), Etherwood (drum and bass), and Kashiwa Daisuke (glitch)
I don't ever like music for appearances so I want to say that they make great music and really recommend them buddy

Music that is predominantly comprised of electronically synthesized or sequenced sounds.

Burial - Untrue
Shy FX & T Power - Diary Of A Digital Soundboy

EPs and singles are much more common than albums in the electronic music world, so it's hard to recommend specific albums. You're better off looking for artists.
