Capitol K: Island Row
Buy! - (XL)
The second album from the British-based musician Capitol K (aka Kristian Craig Robinson) is a wondrous blend of abstract techno, drill 'n bass and other electronic styles with flashes of Sonic Youth-style experimental rock guitar, dashes of acoustic folk, a little hip hop and funk, a dizzying variety of other sounds from around the world, and even some downright catchy pop melodies. While plenty of folks nowadays blend elements of rock and electronic music, very few manage to do it so imaginatively. 5/15/2002 - Don Yates
