Quite a few records logged repeat listens on our office stereo this year. Here’s one of them:
The Artist/Album: Darkstar, North (Hyperdub)
The Vibe: An interstellar pop/R&B record for people who watched 2001: A Space Odyssey one too many times…and were traumatized.
RIYL: Peering through portholes on a part-time basis; beats that are minimal and bleak, yet full of feeling; Auto-Tune with a few presets loose
