Subtle Yell & Ice
- Words: Scott Thill
- Label: Lex
- XLR8R Rating: 8/10
A collaborative reinterpretation of their last disc For Hero: For Fool, Subtle's repurposed Yell & Ice is new to you. Which is to say that its origins have been recombined, remixed, and revised within an inch of their cerebral yet funky lives, with the help of Hood's Chris Adams, TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe, and more. The result is another set of banging jams built from either side of the tech spectrum, whether you're talking the digital thump of "Falling" and "Middleclass Haunt" or the spaced beatboxing of "Sinking Pinks." Subtle's sonic atmospheres emerge from their computers almost fully formed, even when they're manhandled by their friends' talented paws. A must-have for the visualizer generation.
