About two weeks ago, someone created a thread about a concept they'd named "brother and sister albums," by which they meant albums that sat on opposite ends of the same spectrum.
He used Deathconsciousness and Velocity : Design : Comfort as an example, saying "...Deathconsciousness is slow, dark, heavy, while Velocity : Design : Comfort is fast, poppy, upbeat, dreamy."
Because I could not reply to this person's thread at the time, I generated a response, pasted it into a text file, and saved it to my desktop.
Here it is:
This is an interesting idea, and too an interesting pairing. I can envision them being brother and sister, though for different reasons.
Deathconsciousness to me is about resigning oneself to death. People say it's insincere, and I suppose it is, but similarly one can only insincerely resign oneself to death, as it's hard to resign oneself to something as alien and unfamiliar as death.
One can feign comfort with the finality, but those will always be feints, never elevated to sincerity because death's finality is death's and death's alone. One can't be comfortable with something one hasn't experienced.
V:D:C to me is about a girl trying to inspire humanity in a person who has abandoned it and resigned himself to cold inanimation.
That's how I interpret the constant meshing of Valerie's soft, humane voice with the nihilistic and cold glitch patterns.
So in that sense they're brother and sister.
One is about abandoning humanity, while the other is about inspiring humanity.
In any case, I'd like to facilitate this discussion. Tell me: What albums do you consider brother and sister, and why?
