Answers Come in Dreams
Label: Hydrogen Dukebox
Destined to serve as a soundtrack to a dozen short films directed by main member Jack Dangers, Answers comes off more ambient than most of the previous output from this Brit industrial-collage combo. Mainly that's a result of relying more on instrumentals, less on rappers or reggae toasters. Voices, when they show, sound intercepted from radio transmissions -- "#Zero" samples mysterious phonetic codes from shortwave "numbers stations." But the entire album is still infused with distorted arcade beats, fuzzed-out factory explosions and deep Adrian Sherwood-like dub reverb.
