ALIAS : Resurgam

Label: Anticon
ALIAS : Resurgam ALIAS
lp: 9,50 €  (Sold out)
Anticon veteran Brendon Whitney returns for his first proper solo album since 2003's Muted, delivering a mightily impressive line-up of instrumentals, and even a couple of vocally-enhanced collaborations (with long-term labelmate Yoni Wolf of Why? and One AM Radio). As ever, Whitney's starting point for his music is firmly rooted in hip hop, but there's a freakishly wide range of influences feeding into all this. Tracks like 'Death Watch' and 'Resurgam' enter into an almost Ulrich Schnauss-like soundscape of textured electronic pop, all backed up by suitably hefty beat crafting and an underlying air of melody. Meanwhile, the track with Yoni Wolf stirs up a combination of chugging guitars, Four Tet-style drum fills and a hip hop-to-indie ratio that's not dissimilar to Whitney's collaboration with Markus Acher, 'Unseen Sights'. It's great to hear Alias back in action, and he's in fine voice on this new album - which quite appropriately for a 'comeback' record of sorts, takes its name from the Latin for "I Shall Rise Again".

One of the most hyped independent hiphop releases of 2005 and understandably so. Haunting lo-fi soundscapes and beats with various interesting guest vocalists. The guests on this record give a rather nice idea of the variety involved: Mike Patton, Dosh, Orvar Smarason of MUM and Jessica Bailiff.

Not Sepultura at their best, but a cool glimpse of just how cool metal was in the 90's.
