Boy do I hate droppingthe names of Tortoise, Isotope and Chicago Underground in a review, butfans should most definitely take a spin with the latest project fromJune of 44/Rachel's drummer Doug Scharin's new Him record.
This onefeatures Rob Mazurek, Bundy K. Brown and Jeff Parker on nearly all ofthe tracks and was produced by Scharin over three months in 1999. Thealbum takes a new direction for Scharin, stretching more intoelectronic experimentation rather than the jazzy improvisation ofearlier Him products. The playing is incredible and the production isflawless. The music overflows with an emotive depth, sccented with manydub influenced delays and echoes. Those of you interested in purchasingthe wax version rather than the laser one will be in for a special 4thside treat.
