Listened The Cult of Aphex Twin - BBC Radio 4 by John Doran from BBC
Music writer John Doran ventures into the strange world of Richard D James. Over the course of three decades James, known to his legion of hardcore fans as Aphex Twin, has achieved the primary but evasive aim of most serious musicians - the invention, exploration and curation of a truly unique and inimitable sound.
John Doran reflects on the stories associated with Aphex Twin. The myth that maketh the man. This is in contrast to something like Deep Cuts’ guide to the music:

I remember growing up with many of the myths, such as Richard D James drove around in a tank. I also once met a DJ who told me he was a part of a tour in the 90’s where Richard D James spent a whole gig just playing ping pong on the computer.

What is most intriguing about Richard D James is his ability to push back on expectation. I remember when I saw him perform in 2004.

It was like nothing I had ever experienced before and since. Where some dance/electronic acts have a certain rhythm and structure of highs and lows, the whole set was just intense music with no transitions. A musical journalist I went with actually left the gig early.

There is something about both Richard D James and his music that drags the listener in only to spit them out once again. There is a constant teasing of order never quite achieved.

He also details the less magical moments where he hated the music was he making, and had to destroy it as part of the creative process.

Listened Hi Viz (album) - Wikipedia from en.wikipedia.org
Hi Viz (typeset as HI VIZ) is the fourth studio album by Australian electronic duo The Presets. The album was released in Australia by Modular Recordings on 1 June 2018.
This album starts off where past offerings have finished. Driving beats, grinding synths and Julian Hamilton’s voice. However, there is the additional of guest vocals from Alison Wonderland and the DMAs. It is interesting how this provides a different flavour.

I would place this on the shelf between Jacques Lu Cont and the Chemical Brothers.

Listened God's Favorite Customer - Wikipedia from en.wikipedia.org
God's Favorite Customer (or Mr Tillman's Wild Ride) is the fourth studio album by American musician Josh Tillman under the stage name Father John Misty. It was released by Sub Pop and Bella Union on June 1, 2018.
There is something compelling about this album. It’s sorrowful hope really grabbed me. Made me stop, listen and reflect.

I would place it on the shelf between Augie March and Mercury Rev.

Liked Jamie Hewlett and the aesthetics of pop culture (The Economist)
Where Britpop had been largely backward- and inward-looking, Gorillaz looked forward and outward. The sound ingeniously combined dub, electronica, hip-hop, and anything else Mr Albarn felt like using. But it was Mr Hewlett’s character designs that held it all together, and made not just the songs but the concept a hit.
Listened Feature Album: Amy Shark's anticipated debut album from triple j
On her long-awaited debut album, the Gold Coast success shows off different sides to her sound and showcases the songwriting that's made her such a relatable success.
Love Monster is a bit of a roller-coaster – in a good way. One minute you can imagine Amy Billings singing the songs accompanied by an acoustic guitar, then the next minute the drums and synths kick in. The sound never quite settles.

Being her first full length album I wonder if this mix of styles and sounds is a consequence of time. I would probably put it on the shelf somewhere between Of Monsters and Men and Lorde.

Grohl certainly gets around. Very eclectic too http://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-lists/dave-grohls-guest-list-21-amazing-musical-cameos-146685/
