65 Days Of Static.. I'll admit it, I was one of the doubters. I thought
style rock action with welded on Squarepusher beats wasn't gonna work (and I
didn't think it did at first) but I'm kind of happy to be proved wrong and that
the kids (mainly from the home counties by the looks of it) have taken them to
their bosoms. Zane Lowe's support has probably had something to do with this. On
this new single, 'Hole', the beats still sound a bit tacked on for me but you can't fault
the dynamism of the track - it rocks back and forth like a disturbed
rocking horse. On the flip side (if you can have a flip side on a CD) you get 2
so so remixes plus a new tune that does all the things that the kids demand -
chopped up beats fuzzed up guitars and splattershot time signatures. Plus you
get a video as well. On Monotreme.
