I prefer to revel in the "wow- I love this sound!" and appreciate the fact that I have smart friends with sophisticated taste, and refrain from dwelling on the "how did I not know about this?!" ... even though this was released in 1992.
Mark Robinson, the genius behind TeenBeat, was also the brains behind the band Unrest, as well as its guitarist. This tune is from their album Imperial F.f.r.r., reviewed by Pitchfork and worth a skim. It adds up to a brilliantly hypnotic, experimental, sometimes unsettling sound. This selection is probably one of the more accessible tunes, but the album—unlike so much else today—is best appreciated in one sitting as an entire work.
