I make this A 15-16 B so think a second opinion might be useful before I make the final call...

I get that after a couple more counts too.

So, very unlucky A, Darkness Fish, to go out like that in your first BCB Cup.

B, three new songs, to me, soonish.

Dave, you might get the hallowed (?) 'Most Abstentions' prize at the end. ;)

I'm surprised I got that many votes to be honest. If I hadn't thrown that Chameleons track in at the last minute to try and put in a bit of pop music, I suspect it could've been a whitewash.

Personally, I'm surprised by the negative reaction to Melt-Banana, and I also suspect not many people watched the Holly Herndon video, or else they'd have mentioned trying to click the youtube adverts away. And I was worried it wasn't eclectic enough, having a bit too much electronic nonsense, but I had to pick the Nobukaza Takemura track, because it was the only other song I could think of that I knew had a proper promo video.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.
