Automato Walk Into the Light
- Words: Ron Nachmann
- Label: Dim Mak
Now that Cannibal Ox has bitten the dust, look out for crews like Automato to take up the mantle of edgy rap. These guys' advantage: their jumbled lyrical blend of dream imagery and sexual frustration is backed with arrangements by mega-talented dance-punk production duo DFA. So check for la difference: those yearning piano chords in the distance, that skip in the beat, that yelping shred of guitar...and contrast it all against the flipside's equally impressive, straight-ahead funky space-hop remix by Jumbo of the Lifesavas. Compelling shit.
