Kerrier District, a.k.a Luke Vibert, Wagon Christ, Plug, Amen Andrews e.t.c....
This is like the evolution of 'dance' music. Not 'electronic' music. Vibert never fails, this is original, eclectic, and fun.
For those of us tired of the same old melodies, expand your musical horizons. This is one of those albums you can just hit play and forget what track its on. I highly recommend this, and Anything by luke vibert/wagonchrist. This will restore your faith in the future of music. Whereas, other artists will use our love of music to make $$$, this is a musician that must express himself in this way. So if your concerned where electronic dance music is heading, this may be your road map.
As for the tracks, it starts out with the most alien dance track i've ever freaked to. It's like an organic marsian orchestra, complete with freaky voices going ooh oh oh oh, and of course the usual bumps and bass, claps and chessy rythym that reminds you of country square dancing for a second...vibert uses this for his drum palette.. and an eagle call that seemed to be turned into an electronic sound effect... only Napoleon Dynamite could dance and freak to this. The album continues to pulsate through the next few tracks, silhouettes and illogan are filled with mystifying rhythm and effects, these are obviously playful tracks. It's hard to not listen to the whole songs though because its never the same thing. You never know what sonic anomaly is around the corner!
New York is a serious track, I think it is a throwback to memories of earlier dance music... Yesco is a relaxing hummer, just listen to the rising instruments and vocals.. Negresco is another alien dance track, but when it breaks you will love it.
Squaredance seems to epitomize my notions of his quirky drum rhythms. This is how you square dance, Vibert style.
This album is like a spiritual awakening, just get up and dance to this and free yourself, every track will beg you to play with it. Movement isn't requested, it's required.
Just be careful your friends dont catch you dancing to this unless you want to give them a good laugh/scare.
