The new American Intelligence LP from Theo Parrish sounds ace!
As you would expect, the hugely anticipated follow up to Sound Sculptures Volume 1 is not just a collection of dance tracks. The 3 x 12" gatefold album covers all bases from hypnotic afro grooves, jazz soaked slo-mo, dark techno, rhythmic percussion and MPC funk.
Predominantly pure gold from Theo, the only really off the wall track is Helmut Lampshade which I can only describe as Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock on speed playing live on a bouncy castle in space.
The double CD version comes with extra tracks including the brilliant Thug Irony. Personally I would rather have had that on the vinyl instead of Helmut Lampshade, so I am hoping Thug Irony is planned for a future single.
Check the LP out and see for yourself. If you don't feel it you must be dead inside ;)
