To Die For

Is it Christmas time? I guess L.A. Friendly is always up on things, because he did get his hands on the new Mr. Oizo album "Lamb's Anger." For one, and this is always true of Oizo's songs, Steroids is totally messed up, and I really can't put my finger on it. I think I'll play it safe and say, "I just need loud speakers." The king of the snare has produced another bizarre track; really, it's a reassurance we get another anomaly like this. My best analogy would be there is a curious uncle who happens to come upon some drum machines/ production studio and he produces off-kilter yet interesting "I don't know what I'm doing" songs. The crescendo that points to this is when Uffie, totally out of note, says, "steroids." I can never fully say I dislike it, or fully know that I do really like it, because there is something always there that attracts me to both sides -- this could be novel in itself. Uffie is rapping about "I have no idea." The wave is in. There is a clear "Half A Scissor" sample, the same song that was later self-sampled for "HalfanEdit." I can't wait for the rest of this album. As for now, it's Friday folks.
