Really nice to see the 'Late Night Tales' series continuing to distinguish its self from all the other bland compilations on the market.
Fourtet's collection gently peaks and troughs its way through a very eclectic collection of; jazz, folk electronica, and hip hop that fits together in to one of the most intriguing compilations I have ever heard.

After going off the boil for the last few excursions (Jamiroquai, anyone ?)the Late Night Tales series returns to top form. A mixture of hiphop, jazz, breaks & post-rock this is a really distinguished selection. The track listing may not immediately appeal to beyond those who regularly purchase Wire and listen sweaty-palmed to Resonance FM, but it avoids the usual cliches of late night smoking / chill-out compilations and delivers something really different. You probably don't own many of the records here, and probably wouldn't put them on when you all get back at 4 a.m. ("What do you reckon - Linda Perhacs or Terry Riley?") but somehow this mix just sounds right. What does it sound like? There are some great, spooked atmospheric tracks (La Perhacs, Max Roach, Roland Kirk), breaks & hiphop (Gravediggaz, Madvillain,Manfred Mann, Hal Blaine, Malagasy)& electronica from Koushik & Manitoba. And a lot more besides. Next installment is from the Flaming Lips. Can't wait. Now, lets see - Linda Perhacs or Terry Riley ...

theres no denying good music and this compilation is stuffed to the corners with it.
Undoubtedly it is very different, ranging from 70s jazz (Joe Henderson, Sun Ra) to 60s folk (Fairport Convention) and up to modern day hip hop (Gravediggaz, Madvillian). But at no time does the quality drop. If you find that music is an exploration and that the journey you take is wide and varied, then you may find a kindred spirit in Fourtet.

Here we get a peek inside the head of Keiran "Four Tet" Hebden to see what makes him tick. Nothing wrong with that, you might think and being a fan of his 2003 "Rounds" album I was certainly interested to catch an earful of his musical influences. However, listening to this compilation, you have to wonder if the Another Late Night/Tales series is really the best platform to accommodate them.
For starters, ANL/NLT compilations typically have some kind of flow to them. Hebden's juxtapositions seem to have little interest in flow whatsoever, the far-from-logical transition from Tortoise's rattling marimba epic (sorry, "post-rock") "Why We Fight" through Gravediggaz' pounding hip-hop to Joe Henderson's spacious, laidback jazz being a prime example.
Even more baffling are the short track snippets, such as Hal Blaine's "Wiggy", that are thrown in assumedly as a bridge between tracks. Given that these snippets are either non-sequitous bursts of jazz percussion or pretty-but-drastically-anonymous library music, these bridges constructed are so rickety that one would rather take the plunge for the most part. Short segments like these only serve to heighten the feeling of imbalance between track lengths - interesting but short tracks like Koushik's psychedelic "Battle Rhymes For Battle Times" go up against overlong pieces like Icarus' "Benevolant Incubator", not a bad track by any stretch of the imagination, but certainly not requiring 10 minutes to get its point across.
Yet it's impossible for me to write this album off completely. Why? Because in amongst the filler there is some genuinely amazing music dotted around this CD. Manfred Mann's "One Way Glass" is a most funky piece of psych rock with an infinitely catchy riff.
