I love both of these.

That first track reminds me of Philip Glass but purely electronics.

There's a place for monotonous and repetitive electronic music but the best for me is where the track plays on musical and sound motifs and evolves them (as corny as I sound I'm unaplogetic) like a story or journey.

There's a thing I have noticed with the synth artists I have been discovering (Solar Fields, etc.), and that is that they couldn't give a flying fuck for the 3 minute radio-friendly song.... they are perfectly happy for the motif to build over 3, 6, or even 15 minutes, before 'something happens' and the melody develops.

And I good with that. REALLY good with that.

One of the things the Muppet Show used to do was build a song from like one random muppet banging on a rock then another one would twang on a vine then another would hump a vacuum cleaner then another one would play his tonsils and before too long they had a jam going and then one by one by one they'd all drop off until it's a random muppet banging on a rock. It was fuckin' awesome.

Toby Marks thought so, too, I guess, because that's pretty much every Banco de Gaia song.
