Holly Herndon - Platform download album

Platform is the second studio album by American electronic producer Holly Herndon, released on May 19, 2015, via 4AD. The album received wide critical acclaim upon its release. It is the first commercially released album to include a track intended to trigger autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR), "Lonely at the Top". Winston Cook-Wilson of Pitchfork wrote that "Platform may turn out to be the most thought-provoking experimental electronic music release of the year

Holly Herndon's second album Platform proposes new fantasies and rejuvenates old optimism. Herndon has become a leading light in contemporary music by experimenting within the outer reaches of dance music and pop songwriting possibilities. A galvanising statement, Platform signals Herndon's transformation as an electronic musician to a singular voice.

The album is stacked with meticulously cutup pieces of music, vocals, beats. Chorus gave me goosebumps the first time I heard it. I found Home on one of the Mind The Gap compilations of Gonzo Circus. Holly Herndon is also the first female that dominates my end of the years list. May she do that with many more lists. But when you come with this intelligent form of music you get an Instant Classic.

Holly Herndon is an ambitious composer whose work is based on samples and her distinctive voice. Holly Herndon’s songs play new tricks on you with each listen. The Bay Area composer and singer’s work percolates in the mind first, unlike the elemental club music that informs its sprightly tempos and ebbing bass. But though Herndon’s music is at its core "cerebral"-all surface details and richly layered textures-it still exhibits warmth and emotion.

Holly Herndon - Platform Holly Herndon's first album, Movement, was an austere but still extremely physical record, one that focussed on her relationship with a physical machine: her laptop. Its follow-up, Platform, comes closer to leaving behind the corporeal entirely. It sees the body as an avatar and concentrates on its potential for digital connection. Here the human is not just with the machine, but in it. Many of the sounds on Platform are drawn from Herndon's personal internet use, often via an application that records the audio coming out of her browser.

Just as Holly Herndon's debut album Movement had abundant layers in its title alone, its follow-up Platform is just as nuanced in how it combines political, technological, and structural and ideological concepts into a single word. She explores all of these ideas in thought-provoking and unsettling ways that expand on Movement's fragmented, ethereal approach.

Interview: Holly Herndon Goes Off the Grid). At first, Platform works as it should, translating a heady concept and construction into something that works on a visceral level. Interference and Chorus kick off the album and stand out as immediate highlights. Like a laptop booting up, Interference gradually builds upon its rotating vocal chirps and whiz-bang percussion with a sense of urgency. The elements warp into something robotic as they’re tethered by static and liquid bass, becoming alien and indelible at the same time.
