A bit of Black Dice 12" action on Paw Tracks me thinks, in the form of 'Roll Up' and 'Drool'. Includes full color poster. The foundation of 'Roll Up' is a clicky percussion rhythm with electronic pulses and a mystical melody. The flipside is totally confusing as it sounds decent at both 33 and 45rpm. I'm a bit lost for words with this one. Mingus Rude was also intrigued as to the nature of this two tracker. Abstract rythmic intensity that just rolls & rolls, adding filters, flickering sound fx, rough biscuity textures with what sounds like an army of drumming ants interupted by sporadic droning tones. If sound textures is your thing then the flipside can be likened to one of the more dry-dubbed reverbed jams of a certain HannasBarber or a mildly more playful Thomas Koner track.This is one of those very abstract releases that makes writing about music challenging, even more so in the very limited timeframe we get to digest the music we bring to you.Given that I'll probably have a different perspective on this, if heard again sometime in the near future, i'll end this micro review with a reccomendation that you purchase this and post your own review. Strange but strange good. Ant & Mingus
