Gangrene – “Odditorium” – [Decon Records]

surferrosa   7/25/2012   12-inch, Hip Hop

The Alchemist and Oh-No team up once again to deliver the beats, scratches and psychedelia. The hip hop here has a dark, warped sort of air to it. It wiggles, wobbles, convulses and foams at the mouth. Samplage is heavy and often times bizarre, echoing of fuzz guitar and drug use. This record is saturated with odd sounds and all sorts of static, which makes this listen surprisingly noisy. Check B2 for frog sounds. Rhymes are divine, strung together artfully, bringing home the clever and often speaking of food and other substances. The loops here are infectious, maddeningly repetitious and certainly something to bounce to. Gangrene slathers their art with a thick layer of grit and grime, producing a truly eccentric sound like no other. -Surfer Rosa
