Pop Filter - Rethoughts

If you can imagine taking a killer record and just ripping it to pieces, only to glue it back together under a heavy, electron microscope, the mitochondria and ribosomes spell it all out.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
dirty scarab's first piece of music was created for an art installation. it consisted of booms, beeps, clicks and a peculiar grating sound. he became so fascinated with this new medium that he temporarily ditched the paintbrush and sculpture paraphernalia and instead used synths, virtual instruments and computers to 'sculpt' sounds.
the result of this rapid change of direction was an album. 'the place where i fell' made in 2001, was a kind of film noir score that changes pace and direction faster than he changed art projects: jazz touches over an industrial beat, combining glitch with orchestra and simple pop with dark textures.
the album was never meant fro public consumption, it was more a kind of private exorcism.
dirty scarab's true music niche, however, is that of the remix artist, reconstructing tracks by son of mann (kidd cougar), 12 harmonic chaos and others.
he's currently working on remixes for baltimore band 'fools & horses'.

Andrew Sidwell

Imaginative and varied
Many high-profile bands release remix albums thesedays that don't seem to do all that much for me (Beck's Guerolito comes to mind). This, on the other hand, is a pretty impressive reworking of the original, which moves the classic rock sound of Pop Filter toward an altogether darker ambience. "Would You Know", as indicated, is essentially just a lengthening of the original track, but the modifications get more interesting and invasive as the album continues, eventually culminating in the climax of bleeps and lo-fi percussive noises in "Somebody Waits". Overall, it's a wonderfully produced piece of work, and has its own sound -- hinting at a lot of influences but not imitating any.

Glitchy Bliss
Not having heard the orignal songs these tracks came off, i wasn't sure what to expect, but i can gladly say that these remixes,or rethoughts, rock!! 'fly me to the moon' and 'dog of all dogs' are awesome, as is the final track which builds up for a great finish. recommended!

melodic, varied and futuristic
Upon first hearing this EP, i was immediately struck by how different it sounds. The first track is a kind of pop/funk record which really doesn't set the tone for the following tracks - and that's a GOOD thing! The Ep get's progressively more electronic as it plays until the heavy drum based ending.
interesting listening.

Indie music at it's most cutting edge.
This CD shows what independant music is all about. Having the freedom to create any style of music without being pressured into a certain genre from a record label. Very smart stuff.
'Dog of all Dogs' sounds like it came from hell and kick the devis ass on the way out. 'Night Train' is poppy yet hard edged but my personal favorite is 'Fly Me..'.

Fortunate Aural Fodder To Stumble Across
The first time through just the samples of these songs was enough to set them apart from the standard dregs. Take note, all you electronic dwiddlers: what sticks in the long term? Song writing, melody, and sound choice. While your array of plug-ins, outboard, and analogue sounds may be joyous in your short term, the real musicians (unfortuately for most of us aspiring programmers) are the ones whose works should and will be remembered. Dirty Scarab's treatments of these Fools & Horses works are memorable indeed. Enjoy them with spiked tea.

Converser

Electronic escapism
I was hooked from the moment I heard the opening beats to Would You Know. This is a great build up to a great EP which gradually gets darker and more lush track by track. Particular faves are Love Song - a 21st century lullaby, Fly Me To The Moon and Dog Of All dogs, both of which paint a melodic moody portrait. Dirty Scarab can indeed sculpt a track. I hope to hear more soon.
