Dub Narcotic Sound System
Out of Your Mind (KLP083)
If you saw them live and survived, you know the new sound of Dub Narcotic Sound System - it's loud, propulsive and disturbed. For Out of Your Mind, the Dub Narcotic Sound System has been stripped down to the bone, R&B smeared raw, with Calvin Johnson (melodica, voice), Larry Butler (drums), Brian Weber (guitar, keyboards) carrying on, augmented by Chris Sutton (bass) and special guest vocalist Miranda July on the title song. The styles of playing are still diverse: bleeding ear rockin' to blurbeat dub, all played edge-wise. It's a graveyard smash.
