Album Review

Medicine and Duty – “Scorps” – [Foolproof Projects]

mickeyslim   7/25/2012   A Library, CD

UK-based trio, Andy Pyne (drums, percussion) and Matt Colgate (synth, percussion, voices) of Raised By Wolves accompanied by Jack Cooper (samples, synth, voices). Glitchy, scratchy, quiet then loud, occasional yelling, very percussive, but also electronic. Get ready to go deep inside your mind ’cause this is heady, I imagine Cy Thoth trancing out to this, even though it gets disturbing sometimes. Track 3 is amazing, it goes through a minimal glitchy part in the beginning and transforms into this groovy stoney, psyched out jam toward the end in ten minutes of fun.

Pleasantly surprised it’s all improvisation too, makes the album and the sound more playful. We have quite a few albums in the library already (check them out too!) and this release is definitely a step forward in the sound they seem to have been nurturing. This is some good sheet, hop on under the covers…
