    Battles - EP C-B EP (2006) flac

Battles - FANTASY AllMusic Review by Brian Way Battles is a breed of rock band unto itself, sounding arguably like no one else out there. Taking cues from math rock's complexity, Krautrock's repetition, electronica's unlimited sampledelic potential, and the avant-garde's penchant for heresy, they have compiled a collection of their two five-song EPs here that virtually defies description. Made up of a couple-few versions of the same piece a couple times over, all obliquely named and sounding nothing like each other, these are not merely remixes, and they form a cohesive whole. There is "IPT 2" and "Ipt-2." There are "SZ2," "B+T" and "UW." And "Tras 2 & 3" are included, but not the original "Tras," available on its own EP/single. Some tracks like "UW" and "BTTLS" meander aimlessly, but the majority, including "B+T" and "Tras 2," succeed in capturing a sublime groove among the crazy clutter. A highlight, and the definition of the Battles ethos is "Hi/Lo," a lumbering mix of live drums, keyboard bleeps and a reluctant syncopation between synth bass and the stringed variety, culminating in a free jazz guitar freak-out. "SZ2" begins with intertwined guitar lines and what sounds like sleigh bells until a distorted bass and some synthetic brass drop a frenetic off-timed riff, then the whole song inverts itself into a free-funk spazz-out. "Dance," the only conventionally titled track, appears to use samples of vocal whispers and glottal stops to mesh with live drums and create a rhythm briefly waiting for its eventual Fripp-ian guitar scronks to scream through. At least that's what it sounds like, but who knows? Battles blurs the distinction between "organic" and "electronic," and hopefully that's the point. An aficionado of all esoteric music would wait with baited breath to see what the long-awaited Warp release will sound like.

Battles - Race : Out AllMusic Review by Thom Jurek It's official: in 2007, it's all come full circle. Prog rock has made its way into the indie scene. Battles' Mirrored, their debut full-length after three EPs, makes that plain. Messrs. John Stanier of Helmet and Tomahawk, guitarist/keyboardist Ian Williams of Don Caballero and Storm & Stress, guitarist David Konopka of Lynx, and avant solo musician Tyondai Braxton have constructed an album that combines the best of Van Der Graaf Generator, Magma, Krautrock, and math rock, while coming up with something that stands so far out on the fringe that it is in a league of its own. That so much of this music is created via the magic of software and combined with one- or two-note keyboard and guitar patterns makes it the Philip K. Dick equivalent of modern rock. The intro, "Race: In," comes flying out of the box with a series of rim shots and repetitive guitar lines before Braxton comes whistling into the front end. This is a Disney tune for Snow White by the Seven Dwarfs run amok. The abstract patterns introduced by the keyboards and bassline serve to underscore the melody, complex though it may be, and the sampling sound of hammers creates, at least momentarily, the image of "Whistle While You Work" before the guitars enter full bore and transform it into a full-blown prog jam with tight turns, momentary riffs all the while keeping a motorik drumbeat whether on a snare or a tom-tom. The whistling and wordless vocals that reflect another set of keyboard sounds add depth, humor, and warmth to this underground rainbow. On "Atlas," the title track from the band's last EP, the sound is one of futuristic dragon music à la the conceits of T. Rex without the clever lyrics. Here, the drum shuffle of so many great T. Rex tunes introduces a single guitar riff, warped by sonics and growled vocals that sound like a pig snorting. The intoxication of rhythm is inescapable, even as the David Seville Chipmunk-style vocals -- which could be backmasked -- create a progression for the tune to lift off from. It's tribal and slick, both at the same time. There is even a manipulated -- via the wonders of electronics -- "oo-ay-oo" from The Wizard of Oz scene where the evil Wicked Witch of the West henchmen sing as they march in guard formation around her dark palace. But this music is anything but dark. It's insistent, playful, and planned down to the distorted bass loop and pulsing guitar and keyboard notes that are layered on top in single- or double-note formations. Indeed, Mirrored is the place -- the very terrain -- where nerd science meets rock, and it's a gas. It's the amalgam of "merry melodies" that grabs the listener, even to the point of forgetting how many different arrays of percussion and electric string and keyboard instruments are being played on each and every tune. The sprint that is "Ddiamondd" could be in Christian Vander's Zeuhl dialect, with some of nastiest keyboard bass since the Beastie Boys' "Party's Gettin' Rough." One can hear strains of Gentle Giant in the way vocal harmonies are carefully layered to provide a counterpoint to the knotty riffs being executed. "Tonto" is an exception, where Asian, early American folk melody, and contrapuntal interplay create a long journey into some instrumental netherworld where rhythm and sound don't so much come to a conclusion as collide in variations of tempo and modal changes. "Rainbow" is the albums's longest and most chaotic track, yet it's utterly infectious listening as guitars roar and whoosh through the top of the mix. Rhythmic invention undercuts them and directs the shifts in tempo and even key. In contrast, "Bad Trails," with its synth loop providing a hypnotic inroad into Braxton's singing and shifting strands of guitar, bass, and synth lines, is a bona fide song. "Race: Out," the album's final cut, begins largely as an electronically manipulated exercise is backward tape manipulation; but this is all digital, folks, until the drums enter full bore announcing in short rolls on the toms that something else is about to occur -- and it does. Everything shifts into forward motion again on a dime and the instruments engage each other in a labyrinthine dance of cheap keyboard themes and tight, knotty guitar inventions. Pattern after pattern is introduced, played until it becomes rote, and then shifts itself, by only a couple of notes, into something entirely different as sounds, soundscapes, and instruments engage one another in call-and-response until a fade into silence. Mirrored is unlike any recording out there at the moment. It's loud, funny, and astonishingly sophisticated, and doesn't feel pretentious in the least. Never has the wall of electronic futurism sounded so organic or musical. The album's many influences offer only guide posts, as Battles have their own unique image of a sound universe that one can play in as well as be awed by.

Gravenhurst - The Collector AllMusic Review by Heather Phares As good as Gravenhurst was at chronicling late-night desolation on Fires in Distant Buildings, it still doesn't prepare listeners for the leap they take on The Western Lands. More focused songwriting and a big sound bring the delicate features of their music into sharp relief, keeping the intimacy of their earlier work while making it much more immediate. The album's production and arrangements really are remarkable -- The Western Lands sounds polished without being slick, and underscores the drama in Gravenhurst's songs without drowning them in atmosphere. Wide-open musical landscapes dominate, especially on the title track's dark, Friends of Dean Martinez-eqsue twang and "Trust"'s hazy take on tough '60s pop. In fact, most of the album is surprisingly poppy, given the band's signature restraint. However, the excellent, whammy bar-breaking shoegazer riffs on "Hollow Men" are undeniably, head-bangingly catchy, as is the buoyant cover of Fairport Convention's "Farewell, Farewell," which turns Liege & Lief's wistful folk into windswept dream pop. Interestingly, the band's own "Song Among the Pine," with its meticulous acoustic guitar and invocation-like lyrics, is closer to British folk -- and closer to Gravenhurst's traditional sound. Songs like this and "Grand Union Canal," which glides along on jazzy drumming, show that the band is still masterful at creating moods. The album's added focus has also sharpened the band's songwriting; "She Dances" begins with a chugging, hypnotic riff that sounds a little sleazy and dangerous, then Nick Talbot sketches out the regret behind it ("'I need new clothes,' she thinks, 'new skin; a mind I can bear to live in.'"). "Hourglass"' lament "The past is a strange place/But I want it back," set to a looping guitar line, is just as heartbreakingly simple. The Western Lands is bookended with two of Talbot's prettiest, and most unsettling, character sketches: the chilly "Saints" finds Talbot singing "I will trace my blood line" with serenely sinister intent, while "The Collector" sets a serial killer's tale to the album's most beautiful melody. It's an old trick, but the band does it perfectly, as Gravenhurst does most things on The Western Lands. This is the kind of album you can live with and hear new things in with each listen, and proves that the album is an art form that still has plenty of life in it.

Squarepusher - Varkatope [4:49] 07. Squarepusher - Gong Acid AllMusic Review by John Bush Though listeners may have expected an EP of B-sides hot on the heels of the last Squarepusher full-length, Tom Jenkinson appeared to have already moved on with this "mini-album." It has a similar feel (read: tin-can production) to Music Is Rotted One Note, but few of these tracks have the short-shrift sound of your average outtakes. The opener, "Iambic 5 Poetry," is much more inclined to melody and atmosphere, with cascading dub effects hitting off the beat and echoing low into the mix. The EP is definitely less obsessed with '70s fusion and more squarely experimental, akin to the quasi-single "My Sound" from Music Is Rotted One Note. Overall, Budakhan Mindphone breaks the bounds of fan-only singles and earns respect on its own worth. Download links: [Hidden Content] [Hidden Content] [Hidden Content] [Hidden Content]

Squarepusher - Rat/P's + Q's [2:48] 12. Squarepusher - Rebus AllMusic Review by Sean Cooper Tom Jenkinson's jazz roots come through louder and clearer on his full-length Warp debut. Although, like the preceding Port Rhombus EP, this album sounds substantially cleaner and more thought out than previous releases for Spymania and Rephlex, it also far surpasses those releases in terms of musicality and track development, not simply relying on the shock value of "tripping-over-myself" drum programming and light-speed fretless bass noodling. Jenkinson's bass accompaniment also sounds far less prog rock-influenced here, making Hard Normal Daddy his overall most listenable work to date.

Bibio - Maroon Lagoon [5:46] 14. Bibio - Overgrown AllMusic Review by Brian Way On Bibio's second album listeners are treated to more of the same guitar-based audio collages, again sounding distorted through the fog of time, but these instrumentals are nicely fleshed out with additional instruments. At times the listener might be hesitant to even think of this as electronica, with all the recognizable instruments spread throughout the pieces, and the relative straightforwardness of these tracks belies the complexity of their composition. Bibio, who is still just Stephen Wilkinson, layers heavily processed guitar loops with a multitude of other instruments and sounds with no real percussion save the clicking of strings on the fretboard. The end result is a gauzy recollection of memories past, an elusive thought just on the brink of recalling. Bibio's closest peer in musical modus operandi would be Fennesz, but where the latter distorts his guitar and drones in sheets and walls of abstract texture, Bibio has his sonic elements firmly rooted in organic literalism. "The Cranking House" sounds like just that: the internal clockwork of some grand mechanism, with intricate fingerpicking and what sounds like an accordion. "Cherry Go Round" is a carousel ride with circular layers of plucked acoustic and backwards-looped guitar. "Woodington" has what sounds like cellos droning in the background while a tin whistle carries the melody. "DYFI" adds more accordion and a rollicking bass guitar line. "Above the Rooftops" is a pastiche of jaunty piano loops while "Maroon Lagoon" rides on waves of what sounds like bagpipes. Field recordings also help to bring an overall pastoralism to these tracks: "Marram," "Woodington," and "Overgrown" supplement the guitar loops with electronically treated bird trills and whistles, while the burble of a stream flows through "Ffwrnais." And "Aberriw" is the first track to add vocals, telling a tale of a lazy afternoon spent by a daydreamy river watching the "minnows" and "pond skaters." Utterly evocative and painterly, each song on Hand Cranked could be a mini soundtrack to an episode in life. Download links: [Hidden Content] [Hidden Content] [Hidden Content] [Hidden Content]

Not too many bands can keep going for that long and continue to make records that have all the energy and quality they began with, but !!! have managed it. While many of the alumni of the dance punk boom of the early 2000s have faded away or changed their sound or just plain lost their way, !!! remain as good as ever and Strange Weather is full of the kind of ferocious and funky dance punk that they've always done. Taking barely any pauses for breath, the record is a headlong rush from beginning to end filled with exactly what fans of the group will want to hear. Unlike on their last album 2007's Myth Takes there are no glam rock beats or ballads here, just floor filling jams mixed together like a stellar DJ set. Kicking off with one of their catchiest songs to date "AM/FM" and following it up with the dubbed up, hypnotic "The Most Certain Sure" is a great way to sequence the record. It plugs you right into the !!! aesthetic and lets you know that there has been no drop off at all. Indeed the best tracks here equal the best tracks the group has done to date; apart from the two songs mentioned already, the slinky, hooky "Jamie, My Intentions Are Bass," the bubbling "Even Judas Gave Jesus a Kiss" and the hard charging "The Hammer" will all fight for space on !!!'s Greatest Hits. Unlike their most similarly talented contemporary LCD Soundsystem, they don't have the kind of songs that jump out at you and have you singing along. Instead, their songs work more insidiously, creeping into your brain on the back of the bass lines and Nic Offer's buried-in-the-mix-but-insistent vocals. It's a subtle kind of pop music and while it might work best on a dance floor, as a whole the record works well under headphones. Strange Weather may get some static for not being groundbreaking or risk taking but that's okay. It's just !!! at their best and that's good enough.

Jamie Lidell - Game For Fools (Mara Carlyle Ukulady Mix) AllMusic Review by AllMusic While U.K. techno maven Jamie Lidell's early releases explored the outer fringes of the nascent mid-90's experimental techno scene, by 2000 he had morphed into an authentic soul vocalist as one half of the duo Supercollider. MULTIPLY EDITIONS presents remixed or otherwise reworked versions from his breakthrough 2005 solo album, MULTIPLY. The remixes, though, never distract from the gruff Otis Redding-styled vocal inflections of Lidell, whose powerful performances take center stage. The collection features the talents of such contemporaries as Herbert, Luke Vibert, and Gonzalez--all of whom lend their distinctive sonic imprint to the proceedings. The tracks are reimagined as everything from skeletal funk in the vein of Prince to piano-driven numbers, as in the rousing 12-bar blues of "Multiply (In a Minor Key)." Surprising and unexpected, MULTIPLY EDITIONS is a remix album that will have soul-music pundits wondering if it's real or if it's Memorex. Download links: [Hidden Content] [Hidden Content]

Squarepusher - Last Ap Roach AllMusic Review by Greg Prato The one-man drum'n'bass outfit Squarepusher (aka Tom Jenkinson) treads upon more unpredictable terrain on Music Is Rotted One Note. Although the album still contains elements of his usual drum'n'bass sound, this is by and large a jazz/fusion affair. Jenkinson does a masterful job playing all the instruments live and by himself, and perfectly re-creates the funky atmosphere of such early-'70s Miles Davis classics as Get Up With It and On the Corner. Jenkinson's performances throughout the disc are both flawless and inspired -- he obviously realized that if he were to pay tribute to Miles, nothing but the best would do. Davis' spirit lives on in such tracks as "Don't Go Plastic," "Dust Switch," "137 (Rinse)," and "Theme From Vertical Hold," while "My Sound" perfectly captures the essence of Miles' calming and reflective compositions. But don't be misled; this is not a by-the-numbers rip-off of Miles Davis. Jenkinson updates these familiar sounds with '90s recording techniques and injects enough of his own style into the mix to keep it recognizable. Miles would be proud.

Antipop Consortium - Human Shield AllMusic Review by Nic Kincaid Returning to the deft, cerebral sound invented on Tragic Epilogue, Anti-Pop Consortium's first full-length for Warp Records is by far the group's best work to date and takes a strong stride in the fusion of "out" hip-hop and electronic music. Released only six months following the somewhat understated The Ends Against the Middle EP, this completely new group of songs pushes the boundaries of musical structure while still basking in hip-hop authenticity. While the easy comparison would reference Anti-Pop as the Sun Ra of rap, the group's musical sophistication manifests itself as a genuine expression of the limitless possibilities within its composition -- without seeming like an attempt to outsmart the commercial rap competition. So dropping a beat over a ping-pong ball on "Ping Pong" and then rhyming on top comes off as par for the course rather than contrived abstraction, while ironically, the improvement in production and skill here might lead the group into a higher hip-hop strata. Using voices like soloing instruments and orchestrating more chorus-like samples and loops than on previous works, Anti-Pop's sound reverberates quality with each listen to Arrhythmia, a feat of clever artistic strength.

Jimmy Edgar - Heart Beat Sexual (Hidden Track) AllMusic Review by AllMusic COLORSTRIP is the debut by electronic wunderkind Jimmy Edgar. Connecting points across genres as diverse as early-1980s disco and freestyle, as well as the angular experimentation of Detroit techno and contemporary R&B, Edgar's broken funk deploys re-jiggered hip-hop, along with the baroque programming finesse of IDM. The producer's own vocals humanize the otherwise machine-music formula, coming off less like some techno-boffin wallflower and more like an electro-funk Lothario.

Squarepusher - My Fucking Sound [4:29] 10. Squarepusher - Plaistow Flex Out AllMusic Review by John Bush Realizing that another obsessively imitative jazz fusion workout could quickly become a blind alley, Squarepusher's Tom Jenkinson returned to the green fields of drum'n'bass for 2001's Go Plastic, and sounds quite refreshed for having taken the holiday. As one of the track titles ("Go! Spastic") attests, Jenkinson's back to heavy drill'n'bass, the practically undanceable collision of fractured breakbeats and sample-a-second riffs he made popular with his earliest work as Squarepusher. The opener and first single, "My Red Hot Car," is probably the most together production on the album, filtering drill'n'bass through the prism of the stylish British 2-step all the rage in clubland during recent years. (Even though the vocals are filtered and messed with, the risqué, scene-satirical lyrics are still audible, putting the track right in line with twisted, bizarro classics like Aphex Twin's "Come to Daddy" and "Windowlicker.") Jenkinson quickly moves from the single to "Boneville Occident" and "Go! Spastic," a pair of drill'n'bass knockouts that veer from pointed, endlessly complex breakbeats to downbeat hip-hop at the drop of a hat. He also approaches some sort of nadir for time-stretched drum'n'bass chaos on the seventh track, "Greenways Trajectory" -- the breakbeat carnage is packed together so tightly that, eventually, the entire production is reduced to a series of dog-whistle test tones. It's clear Go Plastic is a work of programmed electronics, with little of the jazz influence or played instruments audible on 1999's Music Is Rotted One Note. Jenkinson uses a lot of classic, sampled breakbeats -- reminiscent of early jungle and hardcore -- and even reprises the original "jump wide!" vocal-sample classic, tweaked separately in both channels at the same time. Toward the end, Jenkinson trades the experimentation for a bit of mood-setting on pieces like "Tommib" and "Plaistow Flex Out," but these are only temporary detours from some serious programming chaos. Any jazzbos left over from his previous work may be in for a rude awakening to the frenetic programming and primitive acid house textures; still, fans of Squarepusher from the beginning will be overjoyed to hear him back doing what he's done best.

According to Weatherall, they initially hired Scottish novelist Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting) to pen the notes, but, unhappy with the results, threw together their own versions minutes before the record was shipped off to be pressed. Lots of thin, bubbly, minimalist ambient and mid-tempo breakbeat, with quirky, occasionally half-thought-out tracks aided by production assistance from Geoff Barrow (Portishead) and A. Carthy (Mr. Scruff). Download links: [Hidden Content] [Hidden Content] [Hidden Content] [Hidden Content]

Tennessee Fire #2 Line-up:: Walter Salas-Humara - Voice and Guitar Drew Glackin - Guitar, Bass and Supporting Voice Konrad Meissner - Drums and Supporting Voice The Silos' Cuba has become something of a low-flying classic since its release in 1987. The band's brand of rock & roll qualifies as pre-Uncle Tupelo alternative country, highlighted by the addition of Mary Rowell's violin. Despite the album's name, Cuba -- the island from which Walter Salas-Humara's parents fled -- never comes to the forefront. Instead, vocalist/writer Salas-Humara uses it as a symbol, a place in one's mind where everything comes together. While songs like "Tennessee Fire" and "She Lives Up the Street" have given the Silos a reputation for rock & roll, they also excel with gentler ballads. The acoustic "Margaret" is one of the album's best moments, highlighted by an acoustic arrangement and Dave Pearlman's steel guitar. Lyrics like "Margaret goes to bed around eight/I go to bed around one" capture something elusive with small, everyday details. This off-the-cuff quality works wonderfully on "For Always," a love song with the charming refrain, "She knows I'm hers for always/She holds my love for always." These quiet moments offer a nice contrast to slashing guitar and drum tracks, and both styles come together to form a satisfying whole on Cuba.
