Death Of The Neighbourhood - Death Of The Neighbourhood

A thirty-two track, two-fingered salute
_original
You may remember the man behind ‘Death Of The Neighbourhood’ as fronting ’90s indie act Babybird, but this is as far removed from ‘You’re Gorgeous’ as you can imagine.

A thirty-two track, two-fingered salute to a Heat Magazine gorging society; ‘DOTN’ is a provocative, fierce and disorienting record. Mechanical, trance-like noise loops make way for twisted psychedelic space ballads (the aptly titled ‘Bruised Brain’),and funk-laced hip-hop outings (‘Cokeholes’) as straight-up anti-everything attitudes seep from every musical orifice and muttered word. At times awash with cinematic beauty, at turns a heightened blitz of face-rupturing noise. Just like John Peel would have wanted it.
