Why do we like this?
I've been looking for some trip hop lately (a la Thievery Corporation/Zero 7), and though I haven't found exactly what I was looking for, some interesting stuff has cropped up along the way, including Prefuse 73's album, Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian. When I initially saw that this album had 29(!!) tracks, I was a little taken back. Turns out (unsurprisingly), that the majority of those tracks don't pass the 1 minute length, with the whole work clocking in at just under 50 minutes. While that means that there is an intense amount of variety throughout this album, it all flows so smoothly that in many instances, the short bursts could be combined into one song. There are roughly 4 tracks that come in at a "normal" length, of which I believe the one posted above is most representative.

Prefuse 73 isn't new on the scene. He's established himself in both the hip hop and indie rock worlds, notably working with School of Seven Bells, TV on the Radio and Battles. According to an official press release, Guillermo Scott Herren (aka Prefuse 73) "rejected the idea of straight digital recording and instead went the much more intensive route of recording to analog ampex tape, giving the album the sound of a lost tape of exploratory studio musicians from the not-too-distant past. in addition to the recording process, Ampexian also differs in its composition, existing as a tapestry of tracks of varying lengths and moods, albeit with a remarkable linear flow and, of course, unmatched rhythmic bump".
