Anti-pop Consortium Album Review and Live Footage (Time Out NY)

Time Out NY Album review:
Anti-Pop Consortium
Fluorescent Black (Big Dada)

Like Jay-Z, Anti-Pop Consortium released its “farewell” album in 2003. But only now, on the heels of the superstar’s third postretirement full-length, is this esteemed alt-hip-hop collective staging a studio comeback. Fluorescent Black is so hyperinvolved, it’s hard to begrudge the delay. If the disc doesn’t match the glitchy splendor of APC’s 2002 landmark, Arrhythmia, it still attains euphoric sensory overload on tracks like “Get Lite,” in which wobbly synths command as much attention as syllable-crammed verses. During “Apparently,” “End Game” and other standouts, rhymes fuse cyborglike with high-tech beats, yielding a bracingly weird underground response to The Blueprint 3’s glitzy arena rap.—Hank Shteamer

Anti-Pop Consortium plays Santos Party House Tue 29.

Album Cover of The Month: Spritualized (Special Edition Package)

new version

old version

This is the best special packaging release i have ever scene! A 12 track album delivered as a set of pills (ie: each track on it's own mini-cd in a blister-pack). How awesome is that? I remember seeing this at an HMV in London years ago. Should have bought it. Now Spiritualized is set to re-release the album with more special packaging and art (see below for details).

PRESS RELEASE (direct from Spiritualized official website):

The re-issue is now scheduled for the second half of November, exact release date is tbc.The artwork has changed, some of the packaging is similar to the original release.

There will be 3 formats released:

Ltd Collectors Edition - 12 disc pill pack + 2 additional cd's of previously unreleased material in new artwork.

Deluxe pack - 3 cd's in one blister pill pack. The original album plus the 2 additional cd's of unreleased material.

Standard jewel case of the original album in new artwork. The old design will no longer be manufactured.

Additional cd track listings information to follow. Pack shots of new design available nearer release date.

That's all for now...
