Album Review

Reviewed 2004-10-18 
Wow. Dosh is an upcoming glitch-hop artist on the Anticon label. This EP is a breath of fresh air! It's named after his newborn son, as you'll hear: the whole album is tender and evocative of childhood. Rhodes Piano, quirky samples, thick layers of sound, and devastatingly sick trip-hop beats coalesce in a unique synthesis that is wonderfully complex, but also strikingly emotive.

If you like instrumental hip-hop, if you like electronica, if you just like evoking the memories of childhood, you gotta play this!!

Favorite Tracks: 1 and 3 blew me away! The whole thing is great though.

**1. Glitchy beat, fuzzy electronics, inaudible samples, happy child-like melodies. Everything you'd expect from a glitch-hop song named after and dedicated to a newborn son. This is fucking amazing, and so tender! (3:33)
2. Ambient, no beat. Wistful piano over soothing, sustained noise. Later, nebulous voices sing along. (Note: This is a Fog remix) (3:55)
**3. Short triumphant piano loops over a dope, in-your-face "tripping" beat and persistent background pulses. I love this shit! (4:11)
*4. Slightly toned down remix of Track 1 – the beat is almost the same, but now the melodic focus is on repeated keyboard chords and chimes. (3:01)
*5. The off-kilter, fuzzed out melodies and busy, clangy beat make for a fascinating, eerily addicting jam. Very noisy, very cool. (6:01)
6. Waltzing piano loops over rockin' uptempo beat gives way to a period of loud fuzzy noise. Later: clicks, glitches and warm electronics take center stage, then all the aforementioned elements rock out together. Crazy. (6:28)
*7. Stuttering drum riffs over happy, rumbling xylophone-like notes. Then an ill beat kicks in. Imagine a silly robot trying to jam island style. (4:09)
