F--k Buttons, 'Street Horrrsing' (ATP)

6
Street Horrrsing
Critical Mass
Label: ATP

by Josh Modell

Fuck Buttons linger on the edge of what safely can be called music -- your extended family would likely consider the majority of this British duo's debut "an awful racket" -- but when they ease back on the overdriven electronic intensity, Street Horrrsing works tribal, trancelike wonders. Its best moments (the dense, intense "Race You to My Bedroom-Spirit Rise") recasts John Cage as a metal fanatic, creating soundtrack sprawl that could pass as an alternate score for Apocalypse Now. Lesser tracks (like the squawking "Ribs Out") sacrifice groove for shock value.
