Tom Recchion - Chaotica
Ton Recchion was a leading member of the L.A. Free Music Society and this is his 1996 album. He is somewhat overlooked in conversations pertaining to 20th century experimental sound people, which is unfortunate because the material on Chaotica is some of the most beautiful tape music (and best synth music) out there, and it has had a lasting affect on me. 'Enormous Horses' has almost a proto [William Basinski's] Disintegration Loops or Caretaker vibe to it, with its microsleep induced engorged pedals going in and out of focus ad infinitum. Drooooool.

Hard fantasy shred and 70s sexual rock instrumentation in a dark electric shred labyrinth, a cybernetic Mwandishi era effort with a spiritual bass solo from his grownass man period. Sloppy and raw energied out, almost proglike in its movement. Sort of a homeostatic one-portrait based on breakthrough loop warmth, incising sonic datum into electric fields of sadness. Can someone please make this record?

Glad to see Oneohtrix mention Tom Recchion's Chaotica. His albums really remind me a lot of that record, and I finally started to know why. Also, impressed that he mentions Legowelt, for sure the most underrated and forgotten techno producer of the last 15 years?

SEXTANT's Upright bass, rhodes, and bubble synth does indeed sound awesome together. Great 'cosmic' jazz.

I love these features, always lead me to some interesting music.

But I find the one-album-per-page "slideshow" format totally unwieldy. Can't they just all fit on one page?

Of course it would, but that would mean 10 fewer page impressions for the ad sales team to boast about...
