James Taylor takes a quick break from Swayzak to release CARTHAGE MILK under his own name but the tech-house remains undisturbed as the melodic tones of “Never Really Wanted to Be Like You” ease into your ears. “Bumpkin” takes a blippier approach, though the beat never wavers. On “Myoptix” the bass gets deeper and funkier, and “Jackflap” goes even further down that electro path with the bass. The broken beats of “Warm Cushion” head naturally into the squelchy abstraction of “Wetcoatdryfoot.” “No Clear Channel” returns to a steady rhythm, but with a darker, spare architecture, before “Wagonlites” and “Eurobaby 11” take slightly more angular directions, the former dark and the latter peppy. But it’s the moody strings of “Take Me or Break Me”—sampled from Sade’s “Pearls”—that really carry the beat and the day. It’s a strangely powerful track and a strong cap to a strong album.

10 tracks killer LP by James Taylor (ex-Swayzak, and now involved in a new project (2018) called BECOMING, available on Coriolis Sounds). Cathage Milk published on Logistic in 2005 will make it whatever you're doing : driving, thinking, dancing yo ass off very late at night or cooking.
