Lying awake at 5.30 each morning certainly gives you stuff to think about. For example, what is the middle spike bit of a record player called? (A spindle, apparently). Is it possible to invent a band worse and more annoying than Foals? (No). Do music writers by law have to pretend to like Vampire Weekend? (It seems so). And finally how do you describe the ‘music’ of Usurper?
Well, the answer to that one is something akin to the sound of ‘a man scratching a clock’. But that doesn’t tell the full story. In other parts of the record you hear coins being tossed into an ashtray, something or someone moo-ing, a light scratching, the flipping in and out of a tape measure and that number one smash scraping rust off a cheese grater with a spoon. Call it ‘outsider music or ‘a load of old tosh’ if you like but I’d still prefer to listen to this than the majority of Pitchfork’s albums of the year.
