Surkin - Radio Fireworks

We're moving pretty fast at this point. Remember how exciting cut-up vocals sounded on that first Prefuse 73 album? I believe there was a "Radio Attack" involved. Oh, how quaint and leisurely those chops were. And while the "Radio Fireworks" of today wow us with how quickly they can jitter step between syllables while we two step to the rhythm, how soon until these too lose their sense of speed? But we live in a time of constant refreshing and brief obsession, and this is the sound that matches it. There's no emotion here, just the perpetual motion of progress. That feeling of giving everything you've got 'til it's gone. At this point, we're paving parking lots, but I like it.

It's like a one-trick mechanical pony. But it's fun!
