Astrid Monroe & Genesis P-Orridge - When I Was Young (2004) [V0]

Subtle, somewhat minimal trip-hop creates a stripped down atmosphere through repetitive drums, melodies and basslines. With Genesis' manipulated words echoing throughout the pieces. Although seemingly unspectacular, I quite fancy the eeriness that is prevalent throughout the record. I can't seem to help cycling back to this. I don't know how much creative input Genesis had in this but it seems to me to mostly be Astrid Monroe.



  1. oh man. i was stalking your lastfm as usual and this looked interesting. unfortunately it's not working for me tho. just redirects to the site's homepage. maybe i'm just retarded

  2. No you aren't. I'm having the same problem.

  4. This kind of rules. So does most of the stuff you post, just checking it out recently. Could I possibly send you something you may like? Sound-collage/solo sort of stuff. -

  5. You might find this interesting.

    We refer to it as "Analog Music from a Lost World" -- previously unreleased post-punk experimental rock from 1981, unlike anything else recorded before or after.

    "It's amazing!" -- Gibraltar Encyclopedia of Progressive Rock

    “Here’s something lovely and odd from the Free Music Archive: the Karen Cooper Complex.” -- No Rock and Roll

    "...some hefty grooves, and plenty of 'holy shit" moments'. It's a spacious but highly rewarding listen, and I wouldn't be surprised if some label makes an effort to press this on vinyl in the near future." --

    Jason Sigal, Managing Director at WFMU said:
    "This is amazing stuff and we would be honored to feature it in wfmu's curated portal on the free music archive. I'm very sorry for our slow response, we have a lot of stuff to wade through to find gems like these."

  9. I don't know if this is the case -never heard about this band- but I am afraid that some trip hop bands have landed in the easy-genre-style that stereotypes a sound and then reproduce it over and over. It's not like Massive Attack and Portishead in the very beginning, who were totally different from on another in spite being labeled in the same genre.

  10. Astrid Monroe drops out of sight and show up in time with innovative and fascinating music! I think that is why I do not get bored! I am looking forward to listening to a new album.
