Music I’ve bought in November.
I’ve been buying all the usual nonsense this month, but I’ve particularly been delving into the output of Broklyn Beats (yes, one O), a label that was active in the early noughts. They concentrated on what some people at the time called “brokebeat”: Harsh, annoying music you can’t dance to. For instance, here’s Toecutter:
Man, that album is the most annoying thing I’ve heard ever! And I’ve heard all the annoying albums! I challenge anybody to program while listening to this album! Kudos!
But I didn’t know that Broklyn Beats also did this charming packaging stuff:
See? It’s a mesh thing stapled into a kind of sleeve.
And inside, there is what looks like a hand-screen-printed paper sleeve. (And a CD-R.)
I love it.
