Lobstuhs & Buzzids 1 / Various
Newmanik Productions' Compilation One AKA Lobstuhs & Buzzids ...an eclectic collection of the most creative and innovative new artists in music today. Featuring independent artists from the US, UK, Canada, and Japan. Music running the gamut from the 'gorgeously sinister*' toy piano electro-dub of Twink to the hard-hitting horns and lyrics of Brooklyn's most original hip-hop band, Mental Notes. New York's own Newborn Naturals will rock your f**cking socks off, while the Current Quartet bring chaos to the order of jazz composition and order to the chaos of improv. *-Extra MSN * 'Kooken & Hoomen have answered the question [that lies] between technology and music.' -The News Hour with Jim Lehrer * Tremolando played their downtempo lounge soundscapes at London's Chill Out 2002 Festival. * Iswhat!?, whose 'Parachutes' is featured on DJ Spooky's OPTOMETRY album, is 'all about what's happening that a lot of people ain't even hip to yet. Iswhat is a part of the 'next movement'.' - Rahzel of the Roots * 'Homunculus lives and breathes exuberance....with the band's use of keyboards, vocal harmonies, and clever lyrics.' - Lynne Bronstein, All-Music Guide Yoh-Chu-Sha blend hauntingly beautiful music with delicate whispering vocals and The Danglers churn out a driving jam reminiscent of King Crimson in their heyday. Electro-acoustic duo Table bring a fascinating, unconventional ballad into the mix while the mystical Echoe entrances with his smoky minimalist tech-house track. 'If music be the food of love' and 'variety is the spice of life' ...then Newmanik's Lobstuhs & Buzzids is the zestiest kind of love that you can sprinkle all over your CD player. ENJOY !
