Pictureplane - Dark Rift (2009)

i remember listening to a pictureplane album last year and not liking it too much. shit was too noisy and not the kind of noise i enjoy, it was shit pop mixed with harsh noise. not cool. then a couple of weeks ago a friend linked me to a youtube mp3vid of a song called goth star and shit kinda rocked, liked it enough to get the full album and give this guy another chance. i'm kind of glad i did. dark rift is kind of 90s techno for the pitchfork generation. the influence from acts like real mccoy, the prodigy, 808 state, haddaway and prob some hacienda-era house in this album cannot be denied. at the same time the album feels and sounds current, like i could make a playlist with this and telepathe, holy fuck, gang gang dance, health, etc. pretty cool album.

    Slit Red Bird Throat is one of my absolute favourite albums, so I'll definately have to check this out.

    Really enjoying this, but missing the insane glitchy-noisyness of slit red bird throat.

    I liked slit red bird throat better

  6. this album is pictureplane's best. it's the strangest mixture of french-house throwback and lo-fi glitch. the album art sucks though.

  7. I often dowlnload based on if I like the band name or cd title, this one I like. I agree with you about how lame it is people not leaving comments, but hey most people are hopeless, so dont expect blood from a stone. I like your site, just found it! Thanks and I'll check it out again. Resplandor, liked the name, and hey prestoo! Now one of my favourites! Cresh
