v/a: Corndogs #2 12"

v/a: Corndogs #2 12″

Newest white-label comp from Detroit’s mysterious Sly Fox Records, who released an excellent Appian/Segv split 12″ in 2012, a clear lathe cut Corndogs #1 12″ last year (which I haven’t heard), and now this one. The Appian track that opens this 12″ is just simply sublime crystalline Detroit house, rich in melody and inventively programmed, only settling into a solid 4/4 thump for the last minute or two of the track. Gerald Norton’s track is a sly garage-house shuffler with repeating vocals pleading to “tell Peter Parker that he ain’t got what I got.” Segv’s track adds tons of crazy echo to some basic, repetitive piano chords, yet it manages to stay clear of the usual dub-techno cliches. The disc ends with a track from newcomer Suitor, a murky, mysterious techno track with cryptic synth patterns and clicky hi-hats. Solid release from a quality-over-quantity Detroit label.
