    New album just released by the brilliant Four Tet. Not his best (that goes to Rounds) and clearly his most overtly dance-orientated release (that residency at Fabric apparently fed in to the making of this new one, There is Love in You). But it's still bloody good.

    Hat tip!

    My favourite is Pause, though.

    I heard it was a great album. Looking forward to giving it a listen.

    I have been enjoying here too. It strikes me as flowing - with a rather post rock feel in places - as opposed to the more ostentatious jiggery and absorbing pokery of previous releases. Despite its charms, Jaga Jazzist's "One Arm Bandit" beats it to Album Of The Month For This Kind Of Music (January), with Lymbyc Systym's "Shutter Release" [2009] a few lengths behind in 3rd place.

    I didn't even know there was a new Lymbyc Systym album out...

    To Demonoid, post haste!

    Somehow I miss the ostentations jiggery and absorbing pokery...

    I hear what you're saying, but I am still enjoying the album (certainly more, say, than Everything Ecstatic) and the best bits are really good. As I said, the residency at a club has obviously fed in to the making of this new one - even I, with my epileptic octopus impression on the dancefloor would have found much of his previous output somewhat tricky to bust a move to...

    Also worth a look are his collaboration with Burial and with Steve Reid. I'm not a huge dubstep fan - for me the one big trick, though impressive, grows thin after a while - but the Burial album was great, as is this 12". Reid's a great jazz drummer - thety released three EPs/mini-albums a while back.

    Hat tip to FMF for the Jaga Jazzist rec. They'd been on my radar, but had never actually listened to them before. They sometimes maybe try a little too hard, but at their best they remind me of Tortoise at their jazziest, which is No Bad Thing.

    Decent effort.
