THE BROOKLYN RAIL: Tycho: 'Sun-Bleached Hand of the Man'
Scott Hansen’s Dive is fluid and subtle -- an ambient electronic record styled with welcome rushes of live instrumentation.
THE BROOKLYN RAIL: James Holden & Kode 9
On two genre-shirking DJ mix albums from UK producers James Holden and Kode 9.
THE BROOKLYN RAIL: Shigeto & Teebs: 'Environmental Studies'
On the wealth of field noise and rustling street flourishes that were meant to interfere on Shigeto’s 'Full Circle' and on Teebs’s 'Ardour.'
THE BROOKLYN RAIL: J-Rocc: 'Life After Turntablism'
With Some Cold Rock Stuf, J-Rocc builds on his legacy of mix CDs—the often fastidiously matched streams of crackling, thrift store–bin records, singled out for their tasteless 1970s cover art or cheesy organ parts.
THE BROOKLYN RAIL: Falty DL: 'I Dub New York'
Falty DL's 'Bravery' is dark and captivating; it slips into a comfortable corner of your skull and nests there.
