Album Review

Blanketship – “Pleated Shorts” – [Gigante Sound]

Max Level   10/16/2012   A Library, CD

A crazy quilt of found music stitched together by Jared Blum aka Blanketship. Thrift store records (scratchy, warped, whatever) are wonderfully repurposed into wobbly, eerie concoctions that are pleasant to listen to. A snippet of this and a section of that over a beat from somewhere else… and where did that voice come from? Just when a piece starts to get catchy, something goes wrong: a bass line in a different key gets added or the beat jumps the rails. Things like that. Lots of fun, needless to say. All tracks under 2 minutes long.
