Jon Spencer and Matt Verta-Ray go way out of New York’s city limits to dump a few dead bodies.
Heavy Trash’s Going Way Out With Heavy Trash is out today on Yep Roc.
Maps is the pet project of Northampton electro-head James Chapman and We Can Create is his full-length debut. The disc is a mix of shoegaze and New Order, a digital aquarium in which synthetic swims with organic. The synthesizer roadways mix with Chapmanís breathy vocals and his continental drift of beats and rhythms create a distinctive world. Although Chapmanís sound is alluring, his execution is faulty and meandering. All too often, We Can Create lulls itself to sleep under the weight of its own production and an absence of true substance.
