Folktronics 2

Laundry Room:
On the first post about folktronics, I recall writing about Four Tet and Greg Davis as emblematic artists of the genre but didn't actually linked to any songs from them, so here you go. Four tet's last album was a bit of a letdown for me, aside from "sun, drums and soil" the whole record is just another cute organic IDM album noone needs, I'm uploading my favorite song from him instead, slow jam from the beautiful "rounds". Errand boy is an artist whose specialty is to use copy-paste at his electronica and folk records (folktronics, yes?), the whole LP is free to download at radio free polygon. Ah, yes, thanks to Silent K for directing me to "Husky Rescue".

Cuando Kieran Hebden saco Rounds a finales del 2003 el mundo de la electronica habia cambiado de ser calculador y frio a organico y tibio. Four tet no fue el primero en provocar los cambios, pero, si fue quien los hizo evidentes, y esos vienen siendo los pioneros del genero. Que si la folk-tronica ya esta dando patadas de ahogada? Probablemente. Pero quedaron buenas rolas para el recuerdo. A prender velas.

Errand boy - x depends on y
Ogurusu Norihide - humour
Greg Davis - brocade
Husky Rescue - new light of tomorrow
Four Tet - slow jam

    Greg Davis is fantastic! You should check out his collaboration with Keith Fullerton Whitman and his field recordings. The guy is amazing.
