future past, future future
Firstly: This Thursday, Hush, mad techno and dance music. Come. Yes.
Secondly: The Laptop Club is, amazingly, a collection of 7 to 9 year old kids who draw out designs for laptops. These are astonishing. I am twenty-five of your earth years old, and I parse The Intertubes in a totally different way from these kids. Absolutely worth looking at.
Thirdly: Burial – ‘Untrue’. This is a fantastic album. I don’t know if it’s as good as his first one, but it’s very close to that high bar, and it’s far easier to listen to: lots of vocals, lots of lush pads, lots of pretty / melancholy depth. Really, “melancholy” is the word I’d use for this one. ‘Untrue’ comes from a sad, sad place. It kind of has to. After all, it’s been 15 years since hardcore, and all the drugs have finally started to take their toll on the ravers who are suddenly staring at the wrong end of 30. Buy the ticket, take the ride. With that said, even if you didn’t take that particular ride at that particular time, ‘Untrue’ is still very much worth listening to, as a memory of whenever Things Were Like That, for you.
