Are you like me? First of all…I’m really sorry for you. But let’s move on. If you are like me all these experimental/ambient/darkambient/whateverthefuck artists are very confusing and equally daunting. Where do you start? Who do you start with? Well, dear reader, it’s hard. I’ve spent the past few years trying to understand this music and why I enjoy it so much. But there’s good news. I’m starting to amass a bit of knowledge. Not much, mind you. But a teensy bit. Here’s what I’ve learned.

ARCA RULES

But what do to after ARCA? Welp there’s also Nicolas Jaar and Clark. These two dudes are very very very good at this stuff too. Again, what it is they are good at I don’t know. I f’ing told you up there I only have a teensy bit of knowledge. LAY OFF ME. I’ve compiled this little compilation of the three of them. Just an hours worth. So you don’t get all overwhelmed. This thing is sequenced so no shuffling. I hope you enjoy. It goes without saying……………IT WORKS

    I saw Nicolas Jaar a couple months ago and it was the best concert I’ve seen in years, maybe more like a decade.

    Clark is criminally underrated. His new album is bonkers, but goddammit …. IT WORKS!!!

    Useful. You’ve helped me dig further down this rabbit hole, a deeply strange and wonderful place.

    Bloc, you should dig into some of Chris Clark’s older stuff. “Body Riddle” and “Empty the Bones of You” are my favorites. Dude’s output has been pretty solid for a long time. This style of music is a deep well, let me know if you want to borrow a flashlight.

      Welcome to our site!!!!!! I really love Chris Clark. I plan on continuing deeper. Perhaps you could put together a quick playlist for us?

      • onigiri

        These are just some random artists off the top of my head. I probably went a little off script and you’re likely familiar with a lot of these folks. Hope there’s something good in there.

          Well, that didn’t work, but looks like the link still does.

            cant be having this kinda of newbish behavior proliferating the comments section. consider yourself warned.

            Doris is why we can’t have nice things.
