Bell Seven Types Of Six
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Soul Jazz
Slog through the first track on this album to get to the dark, spare core of electro-funk at the heart of Bell's second album. Produced to hell, then produced a bit more, the combination of fat bass, driving techno beats, twisted occasional vocals and breaks is the soundtrack to a robot orgy, complete with heavy breathing (as on "Mode 3," which features the synthesizer-heavy sound that marks most of the album). Other standouts include the '80s arcade-esque "Daylight Burn" and "Black Helicopters," with its Ewok-on-acid vocals.
