9/10 Clinton Staff review, 20 June 2013

Following on from the universally acclaimed ‘Tarot Sport’, Fuck Buttons are pushing their sound in new and challenging directions with this sonic spaghetti of a new single.

The trancelike grooves have been replaced with something more choppy and schizoid. A peculiarly squeaky loop of synth squarks and drum is joined by the distinctive droned out fuzzy guitars and eventually layer upon layer of synths. It's like all the instruments are playing opposite each other, but it kind of all fits together in a lopsided way.

Producing themselves this time they create an intense sonic soup of a sound that sounds like it has a million different things squeaking away between the surface. For the uninitiated, how to explain it...somewhere between Squarepusher and Growing perhaps?  

On the flip there is more of a techno stomp, with huge beats and fizzing synth building up layer upon layer and the guitar mostly absent - coming across like a supersized version of something from the glory days of Skam records.

Big, bold exciting music that blurs the boundaries between genres to startling effect.

 

9/10 brainfeedr Customer review, 27th June 2013

On Fuck Buttons' stellar 'Tarot Sport', the duo sidestepped the more caustic noise that had made up the most of their debut and embraced more familiar dance music tropes - most notably the euphoric builds and crescendos, though their trademark acid-ravaged sound was still present.

On 'The Red Wing' they've taken another somewhat unexpected detour, this time into hip-hop influenced territory. Without doubt this song has swagger, syncopated beats and all. Give the intro a wipe-clean and it wouldn't be out of place on a Dilla record. But that isn't to say they've gone 'traditional' or whatever the fuck pejorative people are throwing at electronic acts these days - one would be hard pressed to find a melding of dance and noise tropes as effective as this anywhere else.

There's no use for superlatives - this isn't just noise you can dance to or dance you can listen to whilst retaining credibility with your Wolf Eyes t-shirted friends. This is music you can lose yourself to. Here's hoping the album lives up to this promise.

Holy Fuck Buttons more like.

Nobody is gonna write a better tune than the 'A' side here this year. It isn't possible. I thought BoC had sewn up mainstream electronica this year but Fuck Buttons obliterate the whole of 'Tomorrow's Harvest' within about 30 seconds of 'The Red Wing'. I'm left almost speechless after every listen.

This is just stunningly good material. This is raising my expectations for the album sky high.

Will be fucking funny watching the likes of the BBC struggle with their name when this gets big. Can you just imagine that smarmy Jools Holland ponce introducing then? Me neither.

Back to the music. Words cannot explain. Just too good.
