It could be Com Truise, but it has the weightiness of BoC. Would Adult Swim do something like this for CT?

Also, does this not sound like it could be analogous to Tomorrow's Harvest?

For instance, listen to Gemini at the :44 second mark.

Yeah but BoC don't have a patent on synth sounds slathered in effects, so... could be anything or anyone.

Sure, it could be wishful thinking on my part, but I think it sounds more like TH's than Com Truise.

I don't know what rarities of CT sound like, but that's peculiar. He's more synthwave, no? Doesn't fit the bill to me.

Wishful thinking I'm sure!

Com Truise used to make music more akin to BoC, under (I believe) the Sarin Sunday and Airliner monikers. He used to post on here.

Does anyone have a link to the clip you all are talking about?

Okay, that makes a bit more sense. I haven't heard any of his really old stuff.

I sent the post to a friend who is not an obsessed BoC fan and knows more of the CT discography and he said it sounded more like BoC to him.

Again, this is all just wishful thinking, and considering Ghostly just announced the new rarity release yesterday for CT, maybe it's a tie in.

Sounds more like BoC than Com Truise to me. Whoever it is, I'd like to hear more!

I also get lorn vibes, excited to see whatever it becomes, but... BoC does feel like a stretch, I hear the comparison, but... I'm not 100% convinced.


I never say anything when Com Truise is brought up, but this finally feels like my opening:

I honestly feel Com Truise is the most overrated electronic act. I admire the sounds he gets from synths, but his arrangements often fall flat. I saw him do a “DJ set” that was just him playing different songs from his albums all the way through. Telefon Tel Aviv did a bangin techno set before CT that also involved live vocals, so there was a major drop-off. I know CT gets a lot of love, and I’ve listened to his albums quite a bunch, but that set really brought out the Tycho-ness of his music.

Kinda agree. He's done some nice enough stuff and I say this with no disrespect but there is a difference between an artist making music they naturally make and one that is trying very hard to aim for an aesthetic. I just can't get on with an artist when they seem to be chasing sounds and ultimately trends. While a few will most definitely come up with great music doing so, and I can appreciate those examples with the merit they deserve, I personally, choose to seek out artists who just do the only things their brain will let them.

I think the only exception to that is when artists branch off into little sub-genres. Bibio is very BOC inspired, but he takes it in a whole other direction. In fact, Fi came out before Headphase so technically TCH is in debt to Fi. (Granted I prefer TCH, but that's because I prefer BOC's melodic sensibilities over Bibio as much as I like him)

bibio has grown into his own voice, really rate him. I think he's doing the stuff he would naturally do, just he liked an aesthetic too, his own personality shone through and it's now his own. I don't feel he was doing a BoC at any point, BoC are just known for warbly shit and people get accused of copying when they do some warbles.

Aside from that, Ae's Sign is catalogued as warp cd329, maybe BoC are waiting for 333 or have warp slated too many releases in that gap?

Having a lot of CT stuff, Sarin Sunday and Airliner (and of course all available BoC), it sounds like TH.

Turning that Adult Swim smiley face upside down would look like a sky with snow flakes falling. Winter?? :?

Well, it does look like an eclipse, to which there is one Dec 14th.
Could be our date? :0

It's certainly got the sad VHS tones of Tomorrow's Harvest, but I don't know if I can decide in a few notes. And this is coming from someone whose jumped the gun a lot in the past.

If this does have anything to do with BOC though, maybe we'll get to hear an EP of TH outtakes sometime in the future. Anyone remember when we all thought there was going to be a Harvest Transmission EP?

I remember during the summer people were guessing that the album would come out in the winter, I forget the reasoning why now, however. It's funny, but what if we should be taking stuff more at face value, eg. "Turning that Adult Swim smiley face upside down would look like a sky with snow flakes falling. Winter??". I used to think that David Lynch movies were incredibly complex/coded and that you had to think deeply to understand what he was getting at, but that's not true, he's actually incredibly straight forward. I know that's a little bit of a tangent, but I thought it was cool that you actually "followed directions" from Adult Swim's post.

I realize I'm making a mountain out of a mole-hill, but what else is there to talk about.
