a split 12; from doormouse, you've got two tracks, the first is brooding secret-agent sounding funk breaks, that morphs into strange acid hardcore. the second cut "double-sided dead end" is my pick, improv drum intro rolls through with strange zipping sound effects that build up with mysterious xylophone parts and sparce distorted kicks, which winds itself up tighter and tighter with tons of odd fx, and breaks down to a preacher who sounds like jimmy swaggart, then all the tension is released with an improbably jazzy mashed up breakcore beat, to rock your head. this again transforms into a sick, heavy breathing phone conversation, that leads into deep distorted riff over the same kind of beats. and i'm seriously not doing this justice. the flip from brodie guy, also known as cpu war is three cuts, the first is decimated hardcore distorted hiphop flava, like something you might hear from patric c, w/o vox. the second has a similar style, but more waiting, simple synth melody over the whole thing, with a very nice clock chime sounding breakdown. the last cut is an ambient piece that has a very distorted, whispy, cosmic sound to it. extremely varied and quality 12"
