Album Review

Lunch Money Singles 1 [coll] – [Bully Records]

Max Level   1/8/2006   A Library, CD

Canadian label’s compilation of artful, mostly instrumental pieces that originally appeared on 7-inchers by Sixtoo, He Did Glass Music (Sixtoo + Matth), DJ Signify, and a few others. Mainly down-tempo, in the hip hop to trip hop bag, with combinations of acoustic and electric instruments, samples, and a lot of attention paid to beats and layering. Interesting things on every track. Good music beds can be found here, if that’s what you’re into, though not all tracks are 100% bed-worthy, due to varying amounts of movie dialog and other vocal input showing up here and there. For example, #5 starts with a minute of poetry, and #9 has one sampled spoken phrase repeated many times. And there’s bad language, lots of it, on the extremely unpleasant #8. Overall, a nice intro to some artists, and a label, that may have been flying under your radar, as they were mine.
