dirty elegance is the truth!!

debut album from new york-based upstart dirty elegance is a must-hear. a new paradigm in music composition that defies all genres and delivers consistently. reviewers throw aroud the word "seminal" like it ain't no thing, but for once it's use is justified. this album is nothing less. definitely cop it.

the album is almost entirely instrumental with beautiful sonic textures and sweeping themes. it is the sound of the hopelessly despaired meeting the despairingly hopeful. the music would be overwhelmingly epic if it weren't being held to earth by rugged beats and psychedelic sound design.

it's hard to choose which are the standout tracks as the album really needs to be digested as a whole, but my favorites include "angelic remedy", "melophobia", "foreign objects", "aural mist", "wirrok" and "jury and hick. fans of dj shadow, prefuse73 and amon tobin will love this one!!

What defines this release is a tech/minimal like crisp quality of sound that is just great.

Great creativity and a unique sound

This instrumental album is very well produced. The effects that are used are a great compliment to the album. Some of my favorite tracks were "Foreign Objects", "Blind Eye" and "Eventide". This album shows that Dirty Elegance has a lot of talant.
