The genius of Ben Frost

So anyone else digging his new album "Aurora". Such a powerful listen!
Ear-crunching noise with some brilliant melodies deep within the mix. This guy can´t do anything wrong.
Clear AOTY-contender, along with Fennesz.

You're naming two of my favorite artists. They're immense.

Re: The genius of Ben Frost

I found Fennesz album totally uninspiring.
I had pre-ordered it in vinyl, ended up cancelling my pre-order and ordering the Klara Lewis debut EP.

It sounded like trash. Nothing like his collabs with Sakamoto and others.



Ben Frost's A U R O R A: still trying to figure out what I think about it. It doesn't feel even remotely as crafted as his previous works.

Well, if you only like his collabs, I understand the dissapointment. I find it extremely good. The first time I heard "Static Kings" it blew my mind, and the title track is beyond beautiful.
A collab between Frost and Fennesz would be very exciting!

I rarely go after these obvious post count padders but this was just to fucking dumb and annoying... Most of these guys at least try to make their posts look somewhat meaningful... This is probably the laziest I've seen so far and for some reason it really pissed me off this morning... Guess it's monday...
