Just a little education for those “audiophiles” - albums honestly pale in quality to straight digital. You think you like the scratchs and skips - bah bullocks. My movie producer neighbor and I laugh about his love for the look over sound quality. He being in the movie/sound industry for 35 years and me being a musician for near 45. Albums feel good and look good. They do not sound better and it is not subjective.



By "album" you mean "record" or "vinyl", right?
An "album" is a collection of songs or music tracks, put together as one named collection.  The medium used to distribute said album can be on a physical record made with vinyl, on a physical tape (in the past), on in a digital file which contains a collection of multiple songs.
I have noticed I keep upgrading the rating of this track

I agree completely!  Early digital was not as good as the current iterations, but it blew away  cassette tapes. Current digital technology has evolved to greatness.  Aside from skips & scratches, records have wow & flutter, tangiental tracking error & Feedback. The 1st track on a side has better frequency response than the last track. Records need to be mastered differently than digital. All low end below 300hz needs to be mono (equal on left & right channels), to prevent the stylus from jumping out of the groove. Also, digital has greater dynamic range (the difference between loud & soft passages).   Some people prefer the sound of records, but I DON'T!  Some people love the sound of tube audio, but I don't, except for guitar amplifiers.   To each their own!

Seems to me we need to be further educated in this...
Definitely hits a groove. Think I have been officially  Shpongled?...Shponglefied? 
love it!   Aldous would be proud.

Sphongle does not release vinyl, I can only imagine the eargasm I would have via my quality turntable if I could spin this on vinyl!



Posford does release vinyl with some of his endeavours, so worth having a look from time to time.  https://shponglemusic.bandcamp...
This is, without doubt, my persception of Dorset as well.
Shpongle da gesh

This can only come from England  
This music will give your speakers a real workout; top to bottom! Sounds great! Clean, clear and powerful and it drives onward ...

Always thought there should be a "c" in Schpongle's name.

Yes, a veritable soundtrack to Beavis' internal dialogue!
Less bizarre than some other Shphongle. More digestible. Less jarring. Maybe that's good, maybe not.

Quirky, and squeaky, and wibbly, and well weird. 8 from the Shpongled Nottingham jury.
Back when I first heard them I thought they were a silly psychedelic samply novelty.

Always nice to be wrong. Wrong like a Gong. The more you know the more you know you don't know what you know.
The little brothers and sisters from Ozric Tentacles, exelent ,a 10
Like the music, LOVE the name.

You mean, like "Trump?" As in 'to trump'....... from the 15th Century, which is to fart. Onomatopoeia - no lie.

The more I hear 'em the more I loves 'em!
I like this.
I already had a headache....
These Shponglers are just full of surprises, wow!

Kinda sounds to me like a fax is coming in...

Very interesting track. Definitely a pick me up. I'm really starting to enjoy these trance pieces and moments where the mood and rhythm change slowly, and effect a change in the listeners mood. If we allow it to, just like listening to a good orator.
lemme check ... yes in fact ... I'm too old to find this exciting ... suivant .. NEXT !
trippy. definitely some fun stuff here. would love to hear more from Sphongle.
A bit of Starseeds and The Shamen...
I kinda like what I hear from these guys. They are not into brevity, but this and Divine Moments of Truth are pretty interesting from time to time.
I thought the song was refreashing I love the mix of groves and styles great for when you are working! cheers
time to check the review channel..... .

Sounds like it is skipping . . . don't like the effect. Makes me think I'm older than I actually am.
Whoa! Had to mute that baby!
Aack! Make it stop! Next....... :-)

My thoughts exactly. Why do so few performers understand the concept of "always leave them wanting more?"
Audio abhoration.
The sound effects remind me of a cheap PlayStation game.
It's danceable, but my facial muscles are getting the most strenuous workout from the laughter.
Wow, surprising to hear Shpongle on RP... Keep up the good work. 8)
Checked into RP without turning on the stream. Saw the name of this band and absolutely had to listen. Pretty cool.
This band should be mentioned in the thread with silly band names :propeller.gif: Nice song though.
extremely cool track. more Sphongle!
Now, I WAS working and not really listening...had the sound down really low. But I kept looking at the bar to see who the artist is and what the song is, because I kept thinking it was the "Dr. Who Theme"
I think it's mostly difficult to pull-off cross-genre, quasi world beat, club stuff...but this track does it with some real style. High marks to this effort...good pacing and innovative use of blips and loops.....
this song keeps bringing little spontaneous smiles to my face... how can you not dig it?
Sounds like techno Tuvan throat singing.
here here. Great groove this morning Bill. It\'s actually making me feel productive at work, quite an accomplishment.
This is making me highly uncomfortable. :(
every body in the house...MOVE YOUR BODY.... smokin\' set Bill
Catchy. I kind of dig it.
