GUTTER TACTICS
DALEK
IPECAC RECORDINGS

If a Hip hop act is citing MBV, The Melvins and Krautrock as primary influences then they’ve got our attention. Newark-based Art-Hop unit ‘Dalek’ apply stalking, submerged beats to all the transcendent beauty, waste, and tension-building repetition of the aforementioned respectively, to achieve a disquietening and difficult type of ‘illbient’ grandeur. As novel as it is to hear mutating feedback on a Hip Hop record, however, a pure-hybrid is only partly realized with the basic components largely disconnected from each other. The result is less than the sum of it’s parts. It’s also slightly disappointing that amidst all the forward thinking is such unimaginative rapping.

7/10
