Four Tet: Morning Evening

From The Guardian:
“On “Morning Side”, the first track of this 40 minute two-track album, a sample of Bollywood singer Lata Mangeshkar repeats, as Kieran Hebden AKA Four Tet assembles beats and textures beneath Mangeshkar’s voice using Ableton software, complete with time glitches. On “Evening Side” – which seems to pack in more thematic dawns than its counterpart – a wordless sample repeats elegiacally, as the digital sands shift beneath, eventually morphing into something you might dance to. Producer and DJ Hebden’s bow has many strings, but this low-key treat finds space both for subcontinental rigour – classical Indian ragas are often categorised by times of day – and effortless prettiness.”
Morning/ Evening is out now via Text; listen below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
