Format: Audio CD
'Budakhan Mindphone' follows Tom Jenkinson's bizzare post-fusion abstraction 'Music Is Rotted One Note' and ,whilst it sees him exploring similar areas, notably texturally and instrumentally, it is perhaps more accesible due to its greater variety, shorter length and (very occasional) light touches. The opening track, Iambic 5-Poetry, is something of a masterpiece, a rare instance of Tom writing an almost anthematically memorable theme, and the combination of live drums (sloppy, but so good!) and slap bass all drowned in reverb with glockenspiel over the top is certainly unique in the arena of modern dance. Beep Street, too, offers a sound world like no other. It is one of those squarepusher tracks that you keep coming back to time and time again ajust to try and fathom exactly what the hell these sounds are or where they came from. 'The Tide' revisits 'Music Is Rotted' more explicitly, but, fortunately we don't stay there too long this time. 'Two Bass Hit' (a title borrowed from the Dizzy Gillespie tune popularised by Miles on Milestones) does exacly what its title suggest- providing an overdubbed off-kilter slap bass duel (don't try transcribing this one at home) against an ironically simple live drum groove. What a joker! Finally 'Gong Acid' sounds like some kind of outake from a Gamelan workshop, given a strange new spin. Whilst in consistency or accesibility this album could not be compared to 'Feed Me Wierd Things' or 'Hard Normal Daddy' it remains a fascinating exploration of genuine inspiriation. And, after all, who would want more albums of the same music as before, great as it was? Tom, however, needs to be careful not to get stuck too much in his own lonesome musings.

Oooh, very nice . . 6 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
It seems Mr. Jenkinson did things backwards. This mini-album would have been a nice segue from "Big Loada" to "Music Is Rotted One Note." As it is, "Music . ." came out first and was quite a jarring contrast. I've tried to give "Music . ." a chance, and can honestly say I like it a lot, although it's not nearly as enjoyable per se as "Big Loada."
That's where "Budakhan Mindphone" beats the previous ablum hands down. It still retains the experimental jazz touches ("The Tide," "Gong Acid,") but most of the tracks mingle the noodling with a strong beat and some very nice melodies.
The best tracks here, "Iambic 5 Poetry," "Fly Street," and "Varkotope" rank with the best TJ has released. The rest is solid. All in all, a very tasty release, and probably the one I would recommend to the curious.
This album and the original UK "Big Loada" make nice arguments for 'mini-albums' in general. You don't have to set aside a full hour of your time to digest them, and yet you still get a full range of the Squarepusher sound. I'd rather pay $8-9 for a good 30 minute release than $14+ for a mind-numbing 75 minutes. "Budakhan Mindphone" pulls the double coup of being high quality and the right length. Dandy.

A Short Album That Needs Time 6 Mar 2002
By braindata - Published on
Format: Audio CD
"Iambic 5 Poetry" is sheer beauty. It IS the standout track, and at first I thought it was going to be the only one. This mini-album takes several listens to get engrossed and to appreciate all that it offers. At this stage, I can say that I'm thoroughly satisfied with this album. It uses some of the more accoustic jazz style of Music Is Rotted One Note, but this time it's less dark in tone. In fact, it's rather uplifting. There is more electronic sequencing involved here, but it is quite subtle in its execution.
The aforementioned track is the big melody track. Others are more experimental and free-form in nature, but easy to enjoy and complement the overall feel of the mini-album.

Companion to "Music Is Rotted One Note" 3 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
One first listen, "Budakhan Mindphone" seems to be seven tracks that didn't make it onto "Music Is Rotted One Note." Indeed, the album focuses on Mr. Jenkinson's latest trend in producing purely experimental jazz. However, I feel that the tracks included on this album have a tighter structure and can actually be considered 'songs,' as opposed to "Rotted"'s jazz experiments. The two tracks that stand out are "Iambic 5 Poetry" and "Two Bass Hit (Dub)." "Iambic" is rather dim and brooding, with emphasis on string progression and a continuing groove. In two words, I'd describe it as "Funeral Jazz." "Two Bass Hit (Dub)" is exactly that: it sounds as if two bassists totally oblivious to each other are jamming along with a common drummer. This makes for much harmony as well as dissonance. In short, expect up-tempo jazz, not wacky (but absolutely brilliant) breaks that can be found in "Feed Me Weird Things" or "Hard Normal Daddy."

A strange hybrid of old and new squarepusher 15 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Although some previous reviews have claimed that Budakhan Mindphone is really Music is Rotten One Note part II, I really cannot agree. Although B.M. certainly takes a large cue from Music Is Rotted One Note, it also brings back some of the beats of Big Loada and Hard Normal Daddy, although admittedly in a strange new form. Iambic 5 poetry is a very pretty song that is reminiscent of Tortoise; Two Bass Hit is a lopsided bass jam; and Fly Street and Varkatope hearken back to older Squarepusher sounds, while retaining the strange minimalism of more recent Squarepusher efforts. I could do without the tunelessness of The Tide and Gong Acid, but the tuneful-to-tuneless ratio here is much higher than on Music Is Rotted One Note, thus providing a more enjoyable listening experience. This is the sound of Mr. Jenkinson beginning to reconcile the old-school Squarepusher drill 'n' bass sound with the free jazz of his last effort, and it is a worthwhile excursion.

Is the vein of 'Music is Rotted One Note' tapped? 4 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Very much akin to Mr. Jenkinson's last dive into acid jazz fusion, 'Music is Rotted One Note', Squarepusher has yet again returned to the seemingly lo-fi jazz statement against drum n bass in 'Budakhan Mindphone'. The last album was hailed as genius by some and a triffle by others, and this mini album will definitely garner the same reviews by critics: divided. Though some of this disc does delve back into the world of drum n bass for short sections, some of the songs get monotonous and weighed down by the jazz touch (the final song 'Gong Acid' for instance is a trail of percussion hits). My personal favorite track on here is 'Two Bass Hit'. If you enjoyed Jenkinson's last excursion, then this is the disc for you and if this is your first time listening to Squarepusher's latest material, this may be a cheap sampler to his full length release.
