Whistla – Darling of the Tripstream

One of the most stunning garage releases of recent times and certainly one of the most psychedelic, this sounds like Captain Beefheart fast-forwarded to 2011. Whistla,  subfm head and future garage man, has done it again. Don’t think my head’s been turned this much by a bit of electronica since Burial arrived on the scene some years ago. The drunken horn crashing through the middle is reminiscent of Mark E. Smith, when he gets bored during a Fall set and starts making a racket on one of the keyboards.  The other track on the single, Take Me On, is a bit more straightforward, but only a bit, with the same twisted vocal samples skittering all over deep rolling  bass and wickedly syncopated beat. Sadly not available on vinyl but here’s the next best thing, the download link which will give you the full five and a half minutes, rather than the edit below.
