Amon Tobin - "Always"



Brazil's Amon Tobin decided to try something new for his sixth studio album Foley Room. According to the Ninja Tune website, "Amon and a team of assistants headed out into the streets with high sensitivity microphones and recorded found sounds from tigers roaring to cats eating rats, neighbours singing in the bath to ants eating grass." There is also a great short documentary covering the creative process of making this record. I'm a big fan of cut and paste music created from found sounds, and he gets extra points for enlisting Kronos Quartet to help him on this record.

Love the sound. I can't wait to hear the rest of the album.
