I’ve been recently digging The Lost Take by Dosh.
Its the third record from musician Martin Dosh from Minneapolis. Musically, the best I can do to describe it is to say that there’s a little Four-Tet in there, a little Tortoise. If that means nothing to you, think samplers, break beats, loops, quirks and extensive use of instrumentation and changes. The album has guest appearances by members of Tapes ‘n Tapes, Andrew Bird and Fog.
Here’s a track to take a listen to. ‘Um, Circles and Squares‘, a driving bass-synth rhythm complemented by violin from Andrew Bird.
Speaking of that duo, take a look at thier performance at Bonnaroo. It’s really interesting to watch musicians who know how to loop music live.
