Funky Friday Abstractions

Low - Hatchet (Optimimi Version)
7" promo single
Got this free 7" when I bought Drums And Guns. This is a radically reworked version of the song from the album. It's been re-imagined as some obscure '70s AM radio soul gem. And yes, that "crustiness" you hear is part of the recording.

Ratatat - Track 2
9 Beats bootleg
I really dig this - dancehall riddims, twangy geetars and quirky, loopy keys.

Amon Tobin - Always
Foley Room
Constructed almost entirely from found sound, Amon Tobin's latest is a typically brooding, dense series of psychedelic soundscapes. Occasionally, like on this tune, they approach a sort of funkiness.

The Reflecting Skin - Basic Pleasure Model
Modeone compilation
A tasty bit of growly, blippy techno from this Moodgadget Records comp.
