I’ve heard The Bloody Beetroots debut LP Romborama (DIM MAK RECORDS) in its entirety. After the general disappointment surrounding their collaboration with The Cool Kids, I must say that I am pleasantly delighted with what they’ve come up with. The album is more conceptual than anyone anticipated, just when we were tiring of the same noises they’ve been making, they take things in an at times wildly different direction. Strings, piano and more classically influenced arrangements sit alongside their signature distorted compression of twisted hard electro funhouse madness in this amalgamation of old and new (10 old, 11 new).
My first impression? Beautiful breath of fresh air after a short period of stagnation. Decide for yourself with these three: one of the softer songs on the album, somewhere in between, and one of the harder ones, respectively. Grab the FCKN remix while you’re at it, good to see new material coming from their end as well.
