Various Artists Dura Matters
- Words: Vivian Host
- Label: Zod
I've got to hand it to these kids from Milwaukee-they think that IDM and breakcore are going to save the world. Listen to Dura Matters, the new compilation from Wisconsin label Zod, and I defy you to tell them that they're wrong. There's some good stuff here-notably, Curtis Chip's videogames-meet-haunted house d&b on "Non-Working Mouth" and the echoing emo glitch of Binray's "Ekward." And even though tracks like Ground Chuck's "Slowneck" and Com.a's "Miami Planet" make you feel like there is a ping-pong ball bouncing around in your brain, that's exactly the kind of music you want to hear when running around a field on three days' worth of crystal meth.
