DIE TRIP COMPUTER DIE: Die like a Rock
DIE TRIP COMPUTER DIE: Die like a Rock
A radical turn for the DTCDs, this is a CD of coherent songs that crush and elide time. It's wholly contemporary; it breathes the '60s and '70s. In the best way. Now and then The Velvet Underground or The Residents might spring to mind, not to mention Marc Bolan, but the association will be quickly repressed as something else takes over. Performed, these songs holds together the way played music does; solid with samples and studio manipulation, it bristles with detail and surprise. The production is radical, the arrangements highly imaginative, the texts pitched between brilliant and taking the piss. It is a perfectly judged CD and a pleasure to listen to, with great singing (of course, both Lepke and Xentos - who we didn't hear sing much since the Homosexuals days - have track records, and together they shine). These songs listen well, they make sense, they have all the qualities that good songs have - and they sound great. The mix of playing and electronics, of familiarity and strangeness, are in a class of their own. This is DYCD in from the cold, having its cake and eating it too. A very classy and evolved record. L
