Aside from that even, it's not even just that they did it, but the way they use it. For instance, the way they use these sounds minimalistically highlights the brokenness of the sounds themselves, which lends them really well to the theme of the album as a whole. Like, listening from the beginning so much of it sounds damaged, and then partway through the second track (Dancing and Blood) when that simple guitar melody comes in. It hits SO HARD because it stands in contrast to the rest.
Was talking about some of my favorite albums from this year and mentioned that Low's 'Double Negative' is probably my single favorite of the year, and now I've put it on because I was talking about it. Holy fuck still entirely blows me away. Making music out of broken and degrading sounds is extremely my shit, but one of my favorite bands doing it is just a cherry on top.

Feel like a nervous wreck all of the sudden, I wanted to get started on refining this song I was working on, but I just feel indescribably displaced or something. Was thinking maybe I'll have a glass of wine and calm down, but now I'm even more nervous thinking I was going to use that as a crutch. Keep pacing between the kitchen and music room freaking out internally. Need to get to work or else I'm going to get trapped in this hole, but I'm too anxious to concentrate.
I got roped by a friend of mine into being a Dungeon Master for a Dungeons & Dragons game he wanted to get going, at first I was like “Why did I agree to this!? I haven’t even looked at this game since I was a kid!” But as I keep thinking about it, and reading all the materials to prepare I’m starting to get kinda hyped about it.
So glad I managed to convince myself to set down and record something. Just I mprovised a nice sounding ten-minute ambient piece based on a melody I came up with a bit ago. 🎵 #jaigagné
