Review: Jane — Berserker (paw tracks)

Picked this up in Fukouka on Saturday contains Panda Bear from animal collective making dance music with a friend in new york. essentially (and I’m all about generalization) it’s lush aquatic-ee house music similar to Thomas Felmann only with the minimal ambience of Robert Henke at it’s base. Of course nothing bearing the animal collective stamp goes with out some blissed folk-ee shit on top, a few references to the dead’s most out there moments (the cd case includes numerous dead images like the skull face etc), and maybe a little chanting. Jane is a surprisingly subdued project which really wouldn’t sound that out of a place at times as maybe an old Drexeyia 12″ or something. All that aside at other moments it just becomes a peacefull straight out ambient album sans any beat. It doesn’t really shine or gather momentum into a record that you would stuff into other people’s hands as a hallmark of genuis, just slow shit that sounds pretty good and obviouslly is more on the dance floor side of things than the usual Vashti Bunyan loving collective we know now. Essentially it’s the ORB with a little early flaming lips croons around it.

New Music (for a change) from Audio Dregs and Paper Rad Does Beck

yeah paper rad the dudes who made the website you should have made when your twelve but were to busy playing emulators to do have done a video for a Beck remix. It’s pretty good and includes ADR main man e*rock as a director. When I think about, nothing I have ever blogged before shames me as much as that pitchfork-esque MTV news-like spot I just put up but fuck it, I’m tired and just returned from Japan (and yes even more music junk soon… i.e. tomorrow-ish if I’m not busy returning messages from students and shit). Anyway, Beck video is good but the winner so far is the new Torisu Koshiro. Lightly melodic type of shit similar to releases on Takamura’s Childdisc label. From the ADR newsletter:

Lots of new videos to show you! One for Melodium from his Audio Dregs
release by one of our favorite Japanese animators, a video from the final
single on Ratatat’s debut album, and a Beck video made for a remix from his
latest single.

“Felt Melt” by Melodium
Directed By Torisu Koshiro

“Cherry” by Ratatat
Directed by E*Rock

“Gameboy Homeboy” by Beck
Directed by E*Rock and Paper Rad
