I’ve decided to go back to Astro:Dynamics again after listening to Adam Oko’s Diet of Germs tape I wrote up a couple of days ago. Today’s tape comes from Best Available Technology and these songs are supposedly from the 90s. The music, as you might notice, sounded ahead of its time. You’ll hear instrumental hip-hop and what seems to be the seedlings of post-rock with hints of… ah, what am I writing? Excavated Tapes Vol. 2 is a sloppy (I don’t mean this in a derogatory sense), romp through the past. Many of the track names border on nonsensical, as do the compositions with their Dada-like nature. This is quite a disorienting compilation, as none of the tracks ever settle in to what could be called a normal “progression.” They’re all extremely fragmented and jagged, and that’s what keeps you on your toes as it plays. You can’t quite place where all of this noise is coming from, so you’re in a state of constant analysis. Listen to Excavated Tapes Vol. 2 below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
