Genre: Sun worshiping, tribal dance, space rock
Ever since 1998’s Super AE, Boredom’s output has concentrated more on extended sun-worshiping psychedelia and intricate afrobeat drumming than cut up collages of hardcore punk, a trend that Super Roots 10 continues. Rather than being a full-blown album, SR10, like previous Super Roots, focuses on one theme or idea. Aside from the opening nearly-sub-audible bass of ‘Super Rooy’, the EP comprises of a new track, ‘Ant 10′ and remixes from DJ Altz, Lindstrøm and one from DJ Finger Hat (who is most likely eYe himself).
The main track opens just like St Peter’s gates; massive, awe-inspiring and full of light and from there only gets better (and weirder). African syncopation meets synth-tastic disco as the Vooredoms drum circle propel the track up to some sort of drugged up cosmic euphoria. Nobody can scrape the sky quite as convincingly as Boredoms.
The remixes are all excellent and varied, with each DJ reinventing the track convincingly. Particularly impressive is Lindstrøm’s remix, which slowly morphs from dance-y space jam into the cheesiest disco track this side of Boney M.
So grab a copy from CD Japan before they sell out (which should be soon), and experience the work of one of the single greatest musical artists in existence today.
