Freeform, Me Shape

Sprawl Imprint
Released: March 1999 (UK)

This is yellow music: music with a sense of humor. Freeform uses a familiar set of CGD and synth keys, but Me Shape uses these sounds to unusual effects. There are scores of quirky, offbeat, and funny moments here that really make this album stands on its own. Songs like "Blip" and "Munchogram" bounce around like busy bees awash in 303 grooves and hyperbeats. But the variety of sounds here are distinctive. "Blip," for example, uses a building block structure to layer mechanical bets with African tribal wails. There are even several jazz and orchestral interludes. The album has it all, but, more importantly, it remains consistent and consistently listenable.
