So I've been listening to this album a lot at work, but it became stale pretty fast, as all of the songs sound really similar and blend into each other. I enjoy the style, but I'm looking for something with a little bit more variety in their song structures etc.
I need some more instrumental music like this, something to listen to while doing busy work that is kind to the ears and not too distracting.
also general recs thread I supposed
For something in a similiar style maybe check out Mux Mool's first album (and only his first album)
>kind to the ear
This come to mind
>Stuff like Forever by Palms Trax that isn't also on Lobster Theremin because I already know all of that stuff
Been digging the new Kassem Mosse album (pictured) but for some reason I've never really dug through the Workshop back catalog. Anyone love Workshop here?
I'm not really into Lone or jet age of tomorrow. I loved Room(s) when it came out but Vapor City didn't grab me for some reason. Obvs I know J Dilla but I've only really listened to Donuts and a bit of Welcome to Detroit - haven't really listened to him since high school though.
I feel like I'm at a point now where it's impossible to find anyone who is more versed than me in this one particular style I want to hear more of...
If you dig Lobster Theremin check out some stuff on 1080p; This is a good starting point:
Did you listen to the other Brainbombs albums yet? Obey is among their weaker material.
Other than that, check out these. Nice variety of scummy shit.

Assuming you've already listened to some of Orbital's other stuff:
Future Sound Of London
It's not really a style I know much about or am super into but I'd say look into stuff thats in the more breaks-ish side of IDM.
I would assume you've heard of Aphex Twin, Boards Of Canada or Autechre but if you haven't you should
I'm looking for anything similar to James Booker/Professor Longhair/Wynton Marsalis.
Basically I want to be introduced to more New Orleans jazz I guess.
Also pic related, love this album. Moody country-folk.
I know chinese karate I will fuck your shit up
I enjoy the repetitive, driving song structure, the prominent bassline, syncopated drumming and chant-like lyrics.
>Jarrett saves his most pointed attacks on the current jazz establishment for Marsalis. "Wynton imitates other people's styles too well," he says. "You can't learn to imitate everyone else without a real deficit. I've never heard anything Wynton played sound like it meant anything at all. Wynton has no voice and no presence. His music sounds like a talented high-school trumpet player to me. He plays things really, really,really badly that you cannot screw up unless you are a bad player. I've felt embarrassed listening to him, and I'm white. Behind his humble speech, there is an incredible arrogance. And for a great black player who talks about the blues - I've never heard Wynton play the blues convincingly, and I'd challenge him to a blues standoff any time. He's jazzy the same way someone who drives a BMW is sporty."
Last time I visited NOLA I took the ferry to Algiers and picked up Street Parade at a local shop. I really enjoyed it the first time, but it keeps getting better with every listen
does an album from the same artist count?
i had a huge ratatat phase in my early teenage years and i came back to them recently and LP3 was definitely the one that sounded the best to me
also, battles- gloss drop
cool. I'm sorry that I like something you don't like.
This is fucking awesome, thanks a lot. Went there for about a week during St. Patrick's day, had an awesome time. I was already familiar with some NO artists like James Booker and what not, but it's weird being there and really feeling/understanding why that style fits so well with the city.
Sorry, I forgot to include the album art in case anyone else wants to listen.
I'm glad you like it. I'm going to recommend a couple more
This album is a little later, from 1975, and is a little funkier than earlier NOLA R&B, featuring more prominent saxophone segments.
Interestingly enough, Allen Toussaint worked on Street Parade with Earl King.
And here's my favorite Dr. John record, also produced by Allen Toussaint and featuring backup instrumentation by the Meters. 1973 or 74, I forget.
Not exactly the same style, but the layered production of that track you posted reminded me of Chromophobia. You might enjoy the Kompakt label.
