Blue vinyl piques my ears & this is weirdness indeed. Hey typical! furthers Todd Drootin’s exploration into his own unique mélange of IDM and country music. A dark, gritty feel rides dusky piano chords while drum-kit percussion plays background to obscure vocal & feedback samples. The flip is playable at either 33 or 45 breaks or d’n’b. Either way, the rolling paranoia found in the ubiquitous piano & Anton LeVay organ conjurs an American desert brimming with gun-toting rancheros. Perhaps Drootin is the Southern Twin to Canada’s Venetian Snares…

… unique mélange of IDM and country music.
