about

Following up the recent re-worked cd re-issue of his
1996 cassette "Music For Tunnels" comes this new cd
from Tim Green's Concentrick persona. Tim Green you
may know as a member of The Fucking Champs, an
ex-member of Nation of Ulysses, or as the producer/engineer
to many of your favorite bands at his Louder Studios.
With Concentrick he adds another line to his varied and impressive
musical resume. Electronic pop musician? Where "Music
For Tunnels" was all about the drone, this new disc is
more about bubbling beats and melodic dreaminess.
The '70s krautrock electronica influence is definitely still
present, it's just that Concentrick has shifted focus from the
placid soundscapes of Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream
to the more rhythmic territory associated with Kraftwerk and
late-'70s Cluster. But there's more: strings, sampled voices,
frenzied percolating percussion, cinematic lushness...and you
can definitely hear real drums and guitar on here, at parts it's
like a band playing Aphex Twin music! (and at others, it's...just
like Aphex Twin music, circa "The Richard D. James Album".
Not a bad thing!) If you liked the lovely "techno" interludes on
the first Champs cd, or always thought that the Champs could
make a better Trans Am record than Trans Am, you'll
want this! Highly recommended!
