This week I've been suffering from The Tetris Effect. It's a condition (it must be - it has its own Wiki page don't you know) where a person gets involved with a repetitive process for a period of time and they become so wrapped-up in that concentrated world, it starts to invade their everyday life. They'll dream about it, have mental images invade their brain, and have a specific subject generally overshadow every thought process until ones brain folds in on itself, crushing the brian cells like papier-mâché as the diminutive run-off oozes out the ears. Possibly.

As a kid I remember a visceral case of the phenomenon when I played Tony Hawk's Pro Skater all summer on the Playstation. I'd start to drift off to sleep in my hypnagogic state, only to violently wake myself-up while attempting to perform a double kick-flip to blunt slide in my bed. I would gaze at the car park supermarket as to how I'd rack-up 50,000 points on this scenario of my own making. I'd have flashes of inspiration of how to craft the perfect two minute run in the mall level as I 'studied' in my school's Biology department.

Anyways, my role at The 405 is Photo/Video Editor or something, thus I spend a grotesque amount of time in the editing hole at my Mac and now have a similar experience. I'll be cycling around South London and see Of Montreal's face on the side of the 172 bus. Stare gormlessly at the CCTV image of Pure Batching Culture in the local Co-Op. It's actually a bit of a nightmare, and sometimes I'm not sure if I'll ever seen the world like I used to ever again.

So it's a delight to forget about all that and be let out of my cage for a shard of daylight here, and talk a little about music and things for a short period of time in my Editor's Picks this week.

Good things come to those who wait so an ad agency was paid money to implant into your mind, and it was very much true of the somewhat eremitic James Holden (now rebranded to just 'Holden') with his album The Inheritors - released seven years after his debut. The LP immerses you in an intense techno world via a rich, undulating (and very long) journey - what's impressive about it is the sheer scale of soundscapes crafted. It's so god-damn warm, organic, emotional - yet simultaneously abrasive, incendiary and eviscerating. A universe of its own making, like residing in a mellifluous techno igloo as you beat yourself over the bloodied face with a claw hammer at the same time.

Anyways 'Circle Of Fiths' from the album was released as a single this week, featuring a couple of reworkings of the track. To get the most from Holden, do check out the full-length album though.

I was raised in the world's first Garden City - Letchworth Garden City, Welwyn can get fucked - so it seems apt to have a track from Garden City Movement as one of my picks. Fortunately it's also a fanatic piece of work - chopped-up soulful electronic nuggets melting in a vibey sea of gooey calm. We premiered this morning as it goes.

A soon as my eyes met the text "Software Records" (Oneohtrix Point Never's label) it was always going to be something of interest to check out. Huerco S aka Brian Leeds resides in Kansas City and has created a marvellous nebulous album of darkly-tinted ambience and pulsating 4/4 patterns. A great listen for when you're in an introspective, nightmarish place. Or maybe the 453 at 5pm.

Earlier this summer I visited the opening of Tiger Territory at London Zoo with The 405's Editor; so it was a genuine joy to hear news this week in relation to the birth of the first tiger cub at the zoo in 17 years. Our hearty congratulations to Melati and proud dad Jea Jea - the yet-to-be-named cub that arrived into this world at 9:22pm on Sunday 22 September.

Leave your name suggestions for the cub below...

Finally, this was the week that saw the much-anticipated and gripping finale of Breaking Bad. Don't worry, there's no real spoilers here for those late to the party. Let's just say it was pretty great - the one issue remains a mystery: what happened to Huell?
