Blockhead - Interludes After Midnight|
Retro electronic beats. Groovy stuff from the impeccable Blockhead. [FCC] - 4, 5, 12
1: About the NY Subways. Autotuned voice samples with groovy percussion. Not too much development but a fun track.
2: Dark. Sounds like a rumble is going down in the Bronx. Appropriately named.
3: Sounds like a MIddle-Eastern Bazaar at dusk. Funky but still somewhat threatening.
4: [FCC] - The experience of waking up in the morning. Slow, plodding, trying to get the energy back.
5: [FCC] One of the livelier tracks. Retro. (When was the last time you saw a Tower Records?)
6: * Indian sounding, very fun bass that goes up and down. A fairytale is sung in the middle. Grooooovy!
7: Heavy drumgs on this track. Synths open it up. Voices interspersed throughout, but distorted.
8: A 20th century workman's chant. I imagined it being sung by people working on a production line to stave off the drudgery. Anti-technology vibe from the workers.
9: One of the most "organic" tracks. Bluesay, baleful male vocals, light bass.
10: Stretching fitness video intro followed by deep beats. Wind instrument sounds throughout. Similarly, the music speeds up and "stretches" like a rubberband as the song builds.
11: * Piano lesson. You can hear the metronome and the unsteady hands playing. Breathy, ethereal male vocals. One of the most interesting on the album.
12: [FCC] Rapid switches of stereo left and right. Messes with your sense of direction if on headphones. : D
