1) “Future Rock” is Paul Dickow’s second full length for kranky and third as Strategy. He is extremely busy running the Community Library label, which will be releasing a 12” version of this album’s title track, while also collaborating in the trio Nudge, and recording and performing solo work.

Three years have passed since Drumsolo’s Delight, and Strategy finally comes forward with a new full-length. His third album to date, Future Rock focuses Strategy’s diverse interests into a single point, while still drawing directly from the dense, shimmering sonic language established on Delight.

Based on a refined studio process that incorporates multi-tracked live instrumentation, archaic synthesizer equipment, archived recordings of improvisations and band practices, digital sound design, and sound of non-musical origin, the album is a polyglot solution of genres. Musical quotations, discrete sonic jokes, and skewed musicological impressions are blended into a dream-like, impressionistic musical composite which confounds and compounds music’s past, present, and future. A gauzy, vibrating curtain of sound, much like the one that made Drumsolo’s so distinctive, ties together all the songs as do the signature Wurlitzer electric piano and old-school spring reverb.
