The House of Woo is a slippery, eclectic beast of an LP. As an attempt at description, here are a few of my initial thoughts:
"Woo" - similar to DJ Q's tech-house of the late `90s
"Coins for the Canopy" - like a cascade of glitch in a giant Super Mario coin room
"Figurine" - a vibes-heavy R'n'B slow jam shmooze
"Inca Tags" - all sleigh bells, gangsta clap and heavily processed horns
"For Mozy" - a straight up Vangelis new age homage
"Loving The Drift World Taste" - Oneohtrix via Detroit techno
"Peeling an Orange in One Piece" - a lop-sided psychotropic lurch through a rainforest
"Ice Room Graffiti" - an update on Chicago House
"Kangaroo" & "Shampoo" - Both conjure up memories of old Black Dog Productions tracks.
The production is artfully constructed with that ever-so carefully slip-shod timing on the kick drums and resolutely un-cool timbres like electronic pan pipes.
The overall sound is instantly gratifying but with repeat listens it is wearing a little thin and I don't know whether it will stand the test of time. For the time being though it's a decent listen with a gauzy, psychedelic blanket draped over it all. File next to Sand Circles' awesome `Motor City' cassette.
