@JJ-Firl like any Jon Hopkins? Off to see him later this year. Pretty excited, used to listen to him tons earlier this decade and all his albums are good.

I just got the trial for Apple Music. I like it so far. I’vr downalowd some pretty good albums. Ive listened to 1 1/2 of Logic’s albums. I really liked the (edited V.) of Under Pressure.
I also listened the Babymetal’s second album: Metal Resistance. I didn’t like it as much as the first one. It lacked the quirkyness the first one had and sounded more like normal metal. It wasn’t playful like the first, so less just plain cute moments, which is part of the reason I liked the first one so much. Less unique. It was still good, but harder than the first to enjoy without understanding the lyrics.

@JJ-Firl FlyLo is really good indeed!

@kyleforrester87 I still need to listen to some Jon Hopkins. I expect to like it a lot, but like with so many things, I never came around to it.

These last few months I've really been into Charlotte Gainsbourg. It's somewhere between indie pop and French electronic music.

@kyleforrester87 I have listened to Amon Tobin quite a bit. And remember seeing him live in... 2012. Was quite an experience.

I'll listen to this track tomorrow morning. I don't expect my significant other to appreciate this type of music, unfortunately.

@kyleforrester87 I do! Always felt he has a fresh (and crispy, if that makes sense) sound. I’m sure his live sets are ace.

@Kidfried Amon Tobin live must have been amazing. I have never seen him play but a few years ago I saw SquarePusher, which was on my list for quite a while too and it was top notch.

@JJ-Firl yeah it's pretty easy and uncomplicated listening. Good entry point into electronic music I'd say. He's been a producer for some pretty commercial bands like Coldplay so it's not too surprising I guess. But still he's got something special going on.

@JJ-Firl Speaking of Square Pusher I saw him amongst others in 2009 in an underground car park, it was the best night out of my life. I actually stopped going out very much from that point onwards as everything was boring in comparison haha. Then I got a bit older.

@JJ-Firl Squarepusher. Push Square. I see what you did there.

I did see Squarepusher as well, but it wasn't quite a regular show. He performed the album Ufabulum with a live orchestra. Really interesting experience, though nothing like seeing him do a normal set for sure!

@kyleforrester87 And the Jon Hopkins song is seriously good. Why have I never listened to this before? It's right up my alley. Have listened to some of his other work as well: stellar!

I really want to listen to some more experimental electronic music in 2018. I love about any kind of music, but it's way too easy to stay within the confines of one or a few genres.

A fairly recent live performance that really blew my mind was Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith. Do any of you know her? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VYth59dVEs

I'd say Allan Holdsworth and the first and third Aristocrats albums are worth checking out, they are examples of the rockier side of jazz fusion. Metal Fatigue is probably a good place to start regarding Holdsworth, the guitar solo in Devil Take The Hindmost is just unbelievable.

So ever since I've been watching Terrace House on Netflix I've become absolutely infatuated with its intro song Slow Down by Lights Follow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQI5XzQsl3U

If you want to listen to an incredibly good feel song this one does the job. It's also a perfect summer song.

@Kidfried Sorry just got to this. Glad you like him! I've not heard any of this Kaitlyn, at least not intentionally. Just cued some up on Spotify for tomorrow though so will have a listen and let you know!

I can (and have earlier) recommended Proem, I always end up going back to him. A lot of these experimental artists can be a bit hard to get into (Autechre, Clark, Square Pusher etc), you have to almost clear your schedule and listen for 45 minutes to get your head in the right gear, but Proems tunes always have such awesome melodies, it's easy to drop into.

Trentmoller is pretty good too. Just for kicks.

@kyleforrester87 Trentmoller is great! Never heard of Proems, but I'm going to give it a try. What did you think of Kaitlyn?

Also, new song of the week: Leon Vynehall - Envelopes (Chapter VI). It's epic crossover of classical and electronic. https://youtu.be/JsDdBsDkePo

A lot of people on here seem to like rock and metal, try Still Warm by John Scofield if you want to hear some jazz with a heavy rock influence. Protocol is blistering.

Can anyone recommend a good Nels Cline album? I got Currents, Constellations by his current group and it's amazing, I want to hear more of his work.
