Bombs Dropping Winter 2014 Produces 40 Minutes of Electronic Madness
There’s a lot of bouncing on the record, but there’s steps that are going to take you out of the old techno raga and put you in touch with a new wave of digital creation. I love the tracking on “Cold Front” which feels like something right out of a video game from the PS3. It feels organic, and it has a strong electronic vibe that is definitely well worth your time. You’re going to be thrown back into the industrial era of rock music that made games like Quake so exciting.
Don’t misunderstand, however, as this is not stuck in the past, it’s onward and to the future. By 1:15 of “Cold Front” you’re into something all new and creative that is hard to paint within words. There’s more stand out tracks as you listen, including “Scorched Earth”, “Holiday Spirit”, “Revolutionary”, and of course “Death of Me”. However, this is another one of those electronic records that you are going to want to listen to as a whole.
Whether you’re dancing, or you’re immersed in writing, drawing, or at the gym, this is a record that is not to be missed. It has a definitive electronic feel as it throws you through various levels of digital creation. I love it, and recommend it highly.
