Two in one day? Why not. The fodder is there, and this time I’m going to step away from the “big 3” to show I’m an equal opportunity critic. My next exegesis / review of a review is Tiny Mix Tapes’ absolutely childish summary of Ekoplekz‘s latest full length on Planet Mu.
Immediately comical in its shape and in its design, the record is full of damp-sounding instrumentation and dry knock-kneed drum patterns.
What does this even mean? Is this record not a 12″ flattened disc? If so, what kind of turntable am I going to be conned into buying now? Nice contrast between wet and dry by the way, that’s the recipe for mud.
Grotesque to the point of the melodic lines seeming to sloppily slip off of the rhythmic bone
#50shadesofresidentadvisor strikes again…
Within “Scientist,” Dopplereffekt pairs the image of a scientist with classic sci-fi laboratory bleeps and bloops: incredulous machinery performing unknowable acts.
Also, why am I now reading a review of a 15 year old Dopplereffekt release? Oh well, at least it wasn’t a Tangerine Dream or Burial allusion.
Deforrest Brown Jr. showing readers here that he is enthusiastic to contribute to the sphere of blog influence but this review is not ready for primetime. 2/5 stars, I should give you 1 but I admire the effort.
