Comment: recently I reviewed a Boston residing combo, The Mules`s two-track issue 7`` of combining punk rock with No Wave and experimental rock aesthetics. This compilation of 9 tracks is also about Boston, more profoundly, about Boston-based label I Heart Noise related artists. There are represented such artists as School For Robots, Skyjelly, Mary Casiello, Con-Tex, Andrew Geano, Twink, The Sound Down Cellar, Valentin Price, and Jenova 7. The base of the miscellany is mostly of how to splice rock music with electronic or noise music experiments and electro propulsions. Of course, there are some exceptions either – for instance, Mary Casiello`s I Can't Be Tamed (Songs I Hate) is more jazz and improvised music oriented composition. Jenova`s Heroin For Dilla is an insight into a sublime instrumental hip-hop/trip-hop rhythm world. The most challenging and uncanny track comes out from Con-Tex whose Somehow There You Are is composed of warped electronic and acoustic instruments layering which in turn is laced with crawling dada-near vocal manifestation. In the aggregate, it is a fabulous and varicoloured sum of spellbinding and charismatic compositions worth to be enjoyed and get appreciated.
