Tim Hecker


#21

Was good but a 45 minute set for £20? Sort it out Hecker.


#22

1st two albums are getting re-issues. Good news as they are stupid money on discogs


#23

Playing the Barbican in October:


#24

New stuff on the way too!


#25

#26

Fleece Me, Fleece Me, Do It Again


#27

A lazy comparison to make but it sounds like Virgins (slowed down a little) with Love Streams. I love it.

The past 3 albums + Harmony in Ultraviolet have been on-another-level fantastic, so I’ve got high hopes for this. Glad there isn’t a long wait before release either!


#28

Ooh he played this when I saw him last year. Great track


#29

I am properly feeling this. reminds me of some vague musical ideas I got from my love of the sound of distant passing sirens. and those sounds that come in halfway through that are kind of like… chimes with mouths or something?

#31

I’ve listened to this today.

Found it totally disorientating, in a way that Love Streams and even Virgins wasn’t. My early hunch is that this is a very good thing…there are some truly hairs-on-the-back-of-your-neck moments


#32

The whole album?


#33

Yes.

It has leaked…and there are handful or artists (him being one) I can’t resist the urge for.


#34

Awesome. I’m struggling with Keyed Out because it’s just so piercing. Once it breaks down though it’s lush


#35

The whole album is a balance of piercing/lush sounds…which I was really into

Classic Tim Hecker record. Really really satisfying.


#37

yeah this is great, seriously good


#38

20 minutes in - really great.

Maybe i should really go back and listen again to Virgins/Ravedeath/Lovestream? They never really stuck with me.


#39

I was a bit underwhelmed with Virgins but after Love Streams I went back to it and now it’s maybe one of my favourites of his. Granted there’s 2/3 contenders where that changes every few months.

I feel like I’m talking bollocks here but there’s a structure to the tracks and a preciseness that I think makes it feel quite different to the surrounding albums. It’s also colder/darker. I like it a whole hell of a lot.

First few listens to the new one and at the moment I’m just enjoying listening to it rather than thinking about it, if that makes sense.


#40

yeah I’ve been listening to these over the last few days and enjoying them a lot more.
