O. Lamm Monolith
- Words: Josiah Hughes
- Label: Audio Dregs
Monolith, the first U.S. release for French beat-monster O. Lamm, is a bizarre mix of cut-and-paste glitch and poppy dance music. Imagine Girl Talk collaborating with DAT Politics on some children's songs, and you'd nearly grasp his frenzied sound. 8-bit loops clash with choppy samples of conversations and violins, and guest spots from Momus and Midori Hirano add to the record's anything-goes M.O. From the orchestrated hustle of "The Macguffin" to the ADD-techno take on "Tammy Metempsycho Darling," Monolith is a fast-paced and often hilarious record that's too fun to resist.
