Decomposure Taking Things Apart
- Words: Tyra Bangs
- Label: Unschooled
No doubt influenced by the Thomas Kàner and Matthew Herbert school of sampling, every track on this album is made out of noises from a single object: "Scrabble," for example, or "Matches" or "Toy DJ Playset." Of course, there's also the obligatory George Bush speech-raping number ("Speech") and the self-referential and rather mundane "Sound Card Noise." On the plus side, Taking Things Apart forces one to listen to quotidian objects in a new way. On the downside, there are few songs here, so unless you're a found-sound aficionado, you might find yourself wondering exactly why you're listening to noise.
