- So Unreal by LA Vampires ft. Matrix Metals
9/10 Brian Staff review, 25 November 2010
I proper likes this LA Vampires stuff. With the current U.S. underground climate being steadily infused with sparkling clouds of drugged, sludgy tropical pop & woozy, submerged grooves, this is Manda Beth Brown's time to shine. In a smacked-out wobbly way of course. The rhythms on this superb sounding collaboration with Matrix Metals are so beautifully balmy but all the potential sheen is sheared off with the gorgeously murky & fantastically disorientating production. It's not TOO lo-fi though. Ms. Vampire has a hazy, seductive voice that floats wantonly through the wonky casio tones & mogadon 80s electro pulses. The pace of this record is endearingly slow, yet it brings forth a kind of dreamy euphoria, the slowly cascading waves of mangled synth congregate to form the prettiest patterns and micro melodies; samples & flecks of live instrumentation are added to the meandering jumble as beats almost trip over themselves laughing on the way to the door. (they get there eventually) It sounds like a total mess but it absolutely isn't. This is brilliantly constructed, densely layered & evocative music that could probably render taking drugs redundant in the long run as you feel completely off yo' tits just lending this tasty six track wax your ears for half an hour.
