    She's released a We Transfer file (:D) with the raw greenscreen footage so that people can add their own backdrops and turn the video into whatever they want. She also released the audio stems for remixers. Generous queen!



    there are 3 more coming, all shot while quite pregnant hence the lack of movement etc

    She's done a video with Pitchfork breaking down her albums one by one - it's amazing, give it 11 minutes of your time.



    Hearing her talking about the process (and about anything, actually) is one of my favourite things. She's mad as a fucking hatter but such a star.

    Has she really called her child INFLUENZA or is this just some Twitter joke? At this point I genuinely couldn't tell!

    I think Influenza Musk is a lovely name.

    Actually I quite like it in a weird way. I mean it’s hardly going to be going to the local comprehensive and apparently it’s got arms where the legs should be, fish heads instead of nipples, goblin ears in the toilet department and - as anticipated - HOOVES, so I’m not anticipating a normal life. Although X can obviously be misspelt as EX, so there is that

    Can't believe they named it after the main road from London to Colchester.

    I actually don't hate it. I know they're cunts but honestly someone needed to break up the monotony off traditional western naming habits.

    The main joke on experimental music Twitter last night was that it was one of Autechre's better b-sides.

    i've been thinking a lot about names lately.
    i like my given name but i think i really don't like my surname especially more since i recently discovered it was only adopted a 3-4 of generations back so it seems pretty arbitrary.

    from there, and a nagging feeling i'm just an updated version of my dad, i started thinking how silly the whole thing is and how we perpetuate names like new tech releases.

    This is the fun of picking your own name.

    Everyone should get to do it - yr name should be provisional until you're out of school - you get to pick your adult name from the age of 16 but must pick it by the time you're 21.

    I actually DON’T hate it.

    Obviously we’re gonna see this kid in rehab in 17 years, but I’d sooner be called that than NORTH or APPLE, or god forbid, OLIVIA.
