Album: EL-P, Weareallgoingtoburninhellmegamixxx3, (Gold Dust)
Friday 30 July 2010
More of a stopgap collection of incidental music and rudimentary beatscapes than a fully-considered follow-up to 2007's epochal I'll Sleep When You're Dead, this is nonetheless infused with El-P's characteristic dystopian sci-fi mood and edgy, paranoiac tone.
"Take You Out At The Ball Game" opens matters with waltzing strings sketching the melody before it's crushed by big drums, synths and indecipherable crowd chanting; thereafter, many of the tracks employ deep bass synth burrs, crunching beats and John Carpenter-esque lead synth lines. But it's El-P's way with a drum track that's best showcased here, particularly on the closing seven-minute "Eat My Garbage 2", where the sequences vary from the stilted to the slick and jazzy.
