1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I thought it was time to revive this thread. I almost always find something I'll like in it.

    I'm always looking for Boards, Massive Attack, Portishead type stuff, so post 'em if you got 'em.


    Bibio, Wisp. have fun.

    :thumbsup: I guess My Bloody Valentine is a pretty obvious choice. Tricky was sort of a trip hop guy, so that's worth a listen for any Massive Attack fan. I also think you'd like the Books a lot. Autechre, Squarepusher, Aphex Twin and some of the other IDM bands mentioned in this thread are great if you like BOC.

    I like Canned Heat when wasted. Trippy blues.

    Thansk for the recs. I've got some Aphex already. I've tried Tricky. There's the occasional song that fits into my listening, but on the whole, a bit too hip hopish for my chill listening pleasure. I'll check out those other bands. It's hard to get a CD that has enough songs, that sustains a certain tone/mood, to buy the whole disc. It's what I like about iTunes the most, just buying a song here or there.

    Btw good source for Wisp. This is his own website so don't fret. The only thing you won't find are his latest releases with Rephlex(the label run by Aphex Twin). Katabatic is my personal fav.

    FSOL ISDN is a fucking great album. Lifeforms too.

    IF you can find it.
    http://www.discogs.com/Wagon-Christ-...e/master/32177





    FSOL: ISDN, Lifeforms, Lifeforms EP, Cascade EP, Dead Cities, My Kingdom EP. knock yourself out, being in an altered state certainly not required...the music takes you there by itself.

    lol@ guy mentioning tuss do you want people to go crazy?

    Try some Autechre. Incunabula and Tri Repetae are phenomenal albums by them. Also, check out Mogwai. Not IDM, but still very good.
