Mille Plateaux 2: kid606 - PS I Love You/PS You Love Me

This pair of albums are unique in kid606's (unnecessarily) large body of work, from a time when his attitude wasn't as static, his sound more playful. OK, I like his "early work" much more than what he's done since 2002 - his wild stuff was raw and exhilirating, his playful or maybe introspective tracks were loose and buoyant. Here, he releases the "clicks_+_cuts" aesthetic from a clinical approach and, somehow, marries it to a laptop/shoegaze thing, keeping the mix warm, yet snappy, hinting at all-out glitchnoise, smirking at Fennesz's guitar smears, and keeping the kids on the dancefloor moving, if they didn't know why. in 2000, "PS I Love You" really worked for me, and it still does. "PS You Love Me" has some alternate tracks/remixes from kid606, and some fun remixes from other folks on the scene at the time.

for some reason rapidshare has stopped working for me since it became a .com - sooo sad to miss out on this one. Thanks for the great music, and keep it coming (preferably without rapidshare.)

whoa! sorry about that. I plead innocent! can you just not load the link? hmm.....

anomie: maybe you just need to enable rapidshare.com in some ad- or -script blocker (e.g. noscript extension)

thanks for your help. i think its my ISP because it tells me the link has expired as soon as i go to the download page. sometimes it tells me i have already downloaded my quota (which i certainly haven't but oh.. how i wish) and have to wait 46 mins or so. Which i have patiently done. I have a feeling it may have something to do with the IP address being a dynamic...maybe...anyway THANKS AGAIN for the impeccable choice of obscure and rare albums. You people keep me sane. go megaupload, they work great!

i certainly discovered this way too late, any chance of a re-upload?

yeah, a re-upload would be cool. I am having the hardest time finding any of his earlier work, if anyone would like to share his early work or any of it really that would be greatly appreciated
