Avalanches Wildflower (Astralwerks)

The follow-up to Since I Left You stays true to that album’s crackly, lo-fi, cut-and-paste ethos. Who would think to put a calliope sample of The Sound of Music’s “My Favorite Things” under the rhymes of MF Doom and Danny Brown? Emcees are a new addition for Wildflower, whose snippet-like songs sound like they are either being played backward or stuck between radio frequencies. Pillaging of everything from the Bee Gees to the Beach Boys is as shocking as it is admirable.
