So far, I am very pleased with the new Squarepusher record. I’m also enjoying how some critics can’t get a handle on it. That means he’s doing his job properly. As the artist predicted, it is both melodic and aggressive. The grooves devolve to an almost unrecognizable digital mash, but are buoyed by the composer’s sense of melodic narrative. The destructive decoration is the point, but it is anchored to very human sounding notes.
