  1. Pure funk explosion - the piano glissando at 0:21 is cherry the icing on the cake When you absolutely have to let the drummer make a statement Wah to end all wah
  2. I made a variant on those baked cauliflower steaks posted a while back and they were gobsmackingly good. Make a smooth thick batter with flour and milk then mix in some flavourings - I used garlic granules, onion granules, black pepper, salt, smoked paprika (the hot one), cumin powder, dried thyme, oregano Pour the batter into a wide shallow dish Cut thickish steaks from a cauliflower, 1.5 cm-2cm thick, then place each one in the batter, ensuring both sides are well coated, then dip into a bowl of panko breadcrumbs, again making sure they're well coated on both sides (the bat
  3. Great to hear. Will definitely watch it once I'm done with BB.
  4. Is that good, then? Presumably a lighter tone?
  5. For the last 3 weeks or so I've been watching Breaking Bad via Netflix - I'm only a decade late to the show, but what a show. It has pretty much everything you could ask for: great characters, great relationships between those characters, amazing storylines and arcs, cracking dialogue, tension, horror, humour, perfect pacing, beautiful visuals and sound. It's such a complete package. I'm nearing the end of season 4, so feeling a bit sad there's not all that much left.
  6. Looks great. The rain and music give it such a dour, philosphical atmosphere I think you should rename it to 'Midlife Crisis Golf' (although some might say that's a tautology).
  7. Miserable, angry, spiteful people.
  8. Where the Wild Things Are is worth a try. It's perhaps not the most accessible film and could end up being a borefest for some but I reckon for certain kids it can be one of those seminal films that embeds into their psyche and makes a massive impression. It's a real emotional heart-grabber of a film but because it has that surreal vibe to it, it operates in a kind of dream-like, unconscious way.
  9. Sad to hear that. His Eno collaborations are great, and I've very fond of Lovely Thunder.
  10. Oh yeah, this is more like it.
  11. Yeah, when I first discovered synthwave I was pretty hopeful it was going to be a treasure chest of goodies, but I've not found much at all that ticks all/most of the boxes. As you say, that aggressive wall of noise is OK in small doses, but the variation and subtleties aren't there.
  12. Thanks to this thread, I've just discovered Carpenter Brut and Perturbator in my quest to find some more John Carpenter-like synth, and it has that atmosphere I'm after in spades, but it often gets a bit too intense with the pounding beats. Is there anything where it's a bit more dialled in the percussion department but still has the sense of creeping dread? I'm not necessarily after beatless synth, just something where's it's not the driving force.
  13. Yeah, I like that, though it doesn't quite have that atmospheric soundtrack vibe. It's funny, but I've listened to a fair bit of Klaus Schulz (Timewind in particular is amazing) but for some reason I always forget about Ulrich Schnauss and other Tangerine Dreamers.
  14. Thanks for the suggestions - I've had a quick listen to a few of them and they sound promising, so I'll delve a bit deeper this week as my deadline looms. Pye Corner Audio in particular sounded really good. I forgot about FSOL - I like Dead Cities and Lifeforms, though they're quite different to what I'm after but I'll check out their later stuff. Maybe I should post something similar in the synth thread.
