Album Review

Diamond Version – CI [Mute]

fox   11/18/2014   CD

Under license from Raster-Noton, so the dark, minimal, glitchy electronic beats are no surprise. They are precise, clinical and dehumanized with not a hint of comfort – though KFJC listeners may nonetheless derive comfort for those exact reasons. It undermines 21st-century sources of self-worth: career success, religion, intoxication. CI stands for “Corporate Identity”, the deceivingly friendly face that The Man wears to interface with humans.

#1 FCC. #4 Japanese speech. #6 ft Neil Tennant (Pet Shop Boys) self-harmonizing an traditional African-American hymn. #9 Telephone customer service robots, amazing.??#2 #3 #5 #7 #8 #10 Instro.
