Various Artists Camping
- Words: Ben Bush
- Label: BPitch Control
On "When Will I Be Famous," Sasha Funke somehow finds a plosive "b" in "famous," lets the sample ricochet, and builds a hook out of it. It‘s the catchiest thing I‘ve ever heard. And Ellen Allien‘s "Wish"-with its odd rhythm, plaintive guitar line, and trite but endearing lyrics about petroleum wars-is strangely awesome. But the rest of the material here is relatively straightforward, mostly repetitive tracks with large, club-tweaked production. Funke and Allien come out of this looking pretty good; might as well pick up their albums instead of wading through Camping for a couple good songs.
