I got Danceflaw
on Saturday after ordering it on Friday from Warp Records. Now, I've been a big fan of Cursor Miner
ever since I stumbled across the video for his track Library
. So I was quite excited to hear there was a new album. I had already bought the Hair Of The Dog
single (in MP3 form from Bleep.com as it was only released on vinyl) so I already knew the direction Cursor Miner was taking, however I held up hope that there would still be the amusing songs which made Cursor Miner's previous releases so unique and enjoyable.
However on first listen to Danceflaw, I wasn't overly impressed as the album was pretty much entirely missing tracks with lyrics apart from one track Errors in my Mind
. The rest are pounding electronic tracks which on initial listening were fairly boring in comparison to Cursor Miner's more unique tracks from former albums.
However then I learnt the secret to the album... it needs to be played LOUD! The opening track This Is Electro
is an absolute stunner when played on full volume…
