Thirty-five tracks over two discs, housed in some oddly complex packaging: online label No Type has finally come ’round to the CD format, and it’s a doozy. The Freest of Radicals spans a dizzying scope of music, and the CDs are not organized by any principle, instead coming off like an artist album made by 30 or so parties. While a lot of these tracks are noisy and abrasive, that’s not to say there aren’t funkier moments here, like Oeuf Korrect’s Hooked on Phone Ethics. There are also some tracks of stunning beauty, such as the smartly arranged pairing of Diablatomica’s warmly ambient Hallways and Doors and Kalx’s Couf, two tracks written a year apart that sound like remixes separated at birth. With the incredible variety here, The Freest of Radicals accurately captures the joyous anarchy of the No Type label.
