Prefuse 73 - Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian

Prefuse 73's output to date has consistently involved rich and diverse tapestrys of sound that encapsulate various genres. This, the fifth album from the man from Georgia USA, is no different delivering a 29 track body of work that splashes short yet substantial tracks, typically under a minute long, with tracks of normal length which trancsends into an album that constantly surprises the listener. No one stage of the album submits to a definitive genre as such. There are samplings of hip hop, lo-fi IDM, jazz and so on. There even snippets of dub on tracks like Fountains of Spring, while tracks like Four Reels Collide and Whipcream Eyepatch appear to have lost the marbles of genre definition altogether.

This is a terribly endearing and involving package of music that pulsates in waves of controlled spontaneity whilst potraying a certain level of romanticism
