Hood | RUG187 | Released: 08/11/04
Hood signpost the release of their forthcoming album with a new EP, The Lost You. The title track is a sonically incredible blast of fractured jittering rhythms, centred around cut-up samples of Robert Wyatt's voice.
Propelled along on a blistering beat, this densely-textured slab of adventure-pop is the first to be taken from the band's upcoming album. It is backed here by 4 tracks exclusive to this EP. "The Lost You" stutters and stammers (a la Prefuse73) and even pauses for a fragment of dialogue from what appears to be an aborted live show: "The same problem as usual," declares a Germanic female voice, feeding back into Hood¹s own absorbing sense of melancholy. "You know that I don¹t ever have the time to witness the passing of these years," proclaims Cris(is), wearily, "I dedicate this day to you."
