Night Music: Brian Eno Karl Hyde, “DBF”

Eno’s new record (with Karl Hyde) uses African rhythms and sounds, mixed with machine sounds, to do the opposite of swing. But I suspect they would say that in the moire patterns of insistent rhythm there is swing, and more.

And I wouldn’t argue. This is a great sound, even if it doesn’t go for the heart. (And maybe that’s a point?)
