Daily Download: Strategy "Can't Roll Back"
Paul Dickow (a.k.a. Strategy) has been making post-ambient tracks for nearly a decade, though none have been quite as realized as those found on his latest album, Future Rock. The perfect mesh of dub, ambient, and synth-pop, Strategy's compositions are as weird and spacey as they are totally accessible. "Can't Roll Back" is the percussive equivalent of any great jazz-drummer scarfing some peyote with Battles on Magic Mountain.
