actually yes - I hadn't thought of that, but the treatments really do achieve a similar effect, if even more sublime. there is a really fine subtlety to CRWTH - almost sneaky with it's beauty in blurred, muted strokes. haven't compared to the original yet. really enjoying my entire LLC collection these days (which has more than doubled in 2010 - crazy)
sublime is the word, billy. it's ambient in a really dreamy, super-lush sense. i don't know a thing about LLC so i hadn't any expectations, but this new cd is just pure bliss. could you give any pointers to the LLC back catalogue? i downloaded the original chorus album from the passcode that came with the line cd and it's interesting too, definitely less dreamy but cool nonetheless.
the first two LLC albums, bloweyelashwish
were eye-opening experiences for me in my youth, and total gateway drugs, though my four-track skills and pedal collection never matched Scott's. I'm 99% sure both are still available, 110% essential. my feeling is that if these were on a less gothy label, and released as new discs right now, they would blow up the blogs.
I'm a little more so-so on Glissceule
, which introduce computer-based processing & assembly. still lovely stuff.
