Product Details

Summary

With Interludes After Midnight, Blockhead proudly presents his fifth LP. In the two years since the critically lauded The Music Scene, Blockhead, nee Tony Simon, has traveled the globe and emerged with another collection of eclectic songs that twist, turn, and grind their way into the listener's psyche.

While the title Interludes After Midnight, might recall a film from the likes of Truffaut or a sprawling masterpiece by Modigliani, the title comes to us from a decidedly less classical source - an after hours New York City public access show that ran throughout the 80's and early 90's. This was a time before cell phones, TiVo, and the Internet - a simpler time that has informed the sonic landscape of the album. This is not rehashing 20 years of popular hip-hop; this is Blockhead's ultimate homage to the times and places that defined his upbringing.

This is a pre-digital road map through the musical consciousness of Blockhead, a virtual tour of a decidedly non-virtual society - when the airwaves were for TV, phones were for making calls, and when newspapers were printed. Hence, Interludes After Midnight is populated with dusty samples of beeping synths, smooth horn samples blended seamlessly with funky percussion and a sound that will keep you listening - this is classic Blockhead.

Comment: I just donno about this. Downtown science is a classic. The Music Scene was just okay for me. On first listen I'm really not feeling this. Kind of a bore. Hopefully it will grow on me, because I have always loved this guy.

Comment: A. Blockhead is the TRUTH B. I have NEVER cared about how dope an album cover is... EVER. C. The crappy cover means to me that they spent much more time refining the perfection of their sound than trying to appeal to some kid's acid laced wetdream of what an album cove rshould look like. D. Blockhead is teh TRUTH!!!
