Wu-Tang Clan – “Legendary Weapons”

Wu-Tang Clan – “Legendary Weapons”

Since the world’s been so hot for the mash-up wonders of Wugazi (to say nothing of the not so distant tremors of the Wu/Beatles “collaboration”) I think it’s important for us to take a little pause and recognize that the auters of the Shaolin hip-hop world are about to put...

Radiohead – TKOL RMX2

Radiohead – TKOL RMX2

The reason I give Radiohead so much attention does not lie in blind devotion to every single imprint offered. Well. Maybe just a little. Recently, I reviewed the first offering in a proposed series of remixes from the King Of Limbs album. TKOL RMX1 gave the audience remixes by Caribou...

Freeball Friday! Day Late and Dollar Short Edition

Freeball Friday! Day Late and Dollar Short Edition

Sorry. We slept in late. There were things to do, places to meet, people to be – you know the routine. But it just wouldn’t be the weekend for you, me, us, XTC if we didn’t meet it properly. So let’s start off with some fat, bearded men yelling at...

Fucked Up – David Comes to Life

Fucked Up – David Comes to Life

Man, I wish this was “Born to Run”. I thought it was for a minute (or, really, a few weeks). Big, heartstrung guitars, band tight as fuck and a…um…”passionate” vocalist rasping stories about hard working men and harder won loves. Loss, death, God. A unified theory of everyman battered, bruised,...

SBTRKT – SBTRKT

UK electronic producer SBTRKT (‘subtract’ when talking to other human beings, although it’s quite fun to try and say it as is…) has been making a name for himself over the past couple of years with a series of EP releases and high profile remixes, having a go at numbers...

Washed Out – Within and Without

Washed Out – Within and Without

I feel that I’ve written a book on Chillwave and Glo-Fi even before writing this review. To begin, chillwave and glo-fi are new music genres evoking the spirit of the 1980’s while exploiting the lo-fi template. Washed Out was initially identified at the inception of the genre but still remains...

Giles Corey – Giles Corey

Giles Corey – Giles Corey

This is a bleak prospect. A project, named for a man accused of witchcraft and later crushed to death. A book, a CD written and recorded by Dan Barrett in various bedrooms around Connecticut between 2008 and 2010 and mastered by James Plotkin (OLD, Khanate, everything recently heavy). Born out...
