This follows up on the rather tasty first compilation that our man Phil switched me onto a wee while ago (I never got to hear the second volume!). I'm currently playing the 21 track CD but the LP is a different edition which contains 100 locked grooves that I'm fairly sure I could get busy with on the old 1210s. What we have here is a compilation of experimental music from Washington DC with a ton of rad musicians doing their thing: Borborites, TL0741, Burntsystems, Bushmeat & Friends, Sean Peoples, BLK W/ BEAR, Mercury Fools the Alchemist, Nine Strings Trio, Pilesar, Blue Sausage Infant, Many Spaceships, Tone Ghosting, Makioki Sisters, Gum Yummy, Baby Killer Estelle, Dragonfly in Captivity, Janel & Anthony & Violet, Bastard Squid Implant, Tag Cloud, Fast Forty, RDK. Man some of those artist names made me chuckle... There's an enormous plethora of weird and strange electronics and fucked up audio to explore here and from the artist names and titles I get the picture that most of these guys are having a lot of fun and probably not taking themselves too seriously which is always refreshing in experimental music. Dragonfly In Captivity's 'Get Me the Fuck Out Of This Tupperware, Please' is a case in point. The audio sounds like a recording of what the title suggests but I'm inclined to conclude it's just a really neat and clever piece of sound design, although I could be wrong. I've been so guilty over the years of heading straight for records by artists I'm familiar with but listening to this stuff really brings a sense of adventure and exploration that feels rewarding and a journey into the unknown were expectations are often destroyed. So much good shit packed in here I can thoroughly recommend giving this a go. A great snapshot from deep within the US underground.
