CLASSIC ALBUM REVISITED
The subject of an outstanding recent Pitchfork essay from leading English music writer Simon Reynolds, the second album from the secretive Londoner continues to seduce those who hear it. A milestone dubstep release, it’s a remarkable evocation of the pleasures and pains of modern urban living. Snatches of dialogue, disembodied vocals, found sounds and carefully textured instrumentals are combined expertly. Both melancholic and lifeaffirming, it’s the perfect aural accompaniment for a late-night car journey in the city.
