Album Review

Interstellar Fugitives [coll] – [Submerge]

Rococo   7/5/2005   12-inch, A Library

The latest manifesto from Detroit’s Underground Resistance posse is a new take on the classic electro sound, replete with vocodered vocals and stabbing synths. Alongside veterans like The Suburban Knight, Drexciya, and UR themselves, this compilation features several newcomers: Chaos, Perception, and Chamaleon, just to name a few. For a compilation, the sound is remarkably consistent, particularly over the first three sides. Favorites here include the funky opener, “Maroon,” and the electro house of “Soul Saver.” With Drexciya’s unique aquaticisms on Side D, things start to go a bit pear-shaped, and Side E even features two tracks with a Middle Eastern flavor! Rounding out the compilation are a brooding instrumental track by Chamaleon and a funky closer by UR. In short, an album that documents Detroit’s continued musical vitality.
