Various Artists The Free Design: The Now Sound Redesigned
- Words: Brock Phillips
- Label: Light in the Attic
Soft-psych cult faves The Free Design chose that moniker for their first release, an album brimming over with boundless enthusiasm and melodies to match. Despite The Free Design never having achieved large-scale commercial success, the remixers that Light in the Attic has assembled for this release pay testament to the influence of this quartet. Madlib, Caribou, Koushik, Dangermouse, and more all take their turns reinterpreting the sonorous sounds of the originals, while Nobody lovingly curates the entire collection with spliced samples of dialogue and musical interludes.
