Dj? Acucrack - killing mobius

Dj? Acucrack - killing mobius

We were about 4 maybe 5 hours east of Sacramento, though it felt like 8 or 9. Itís funny how time loses all meaning when you find yourself boxed into a metal tube thundering down the tracks, although they hardly thunder these days more like meekly plod along. We were headed for Chicago and eventually home. I had left San Francisco behind that morning and was entering the dead expanse of the Sierra Nevadaís. There was this awesome record shop Iíd been to where I had found Killing Mobius; I didnít even know it was out before i saw it. Tired and listless, I was bored of the charred landscape. I threw the cd on, I figured it might cheer me up. Unfortunately it was totally the wrong kind of music for that environment, I needed some good steel guitar or lonely country crooning, but I still grooved to it. I started to feel it was a little of the same thing over again, but the more I listened I realized how wrong I was. Only the hostile landscape was bleak not the crack. The speakers that I was using were tiny and tinny, so I couldnít wait to put it onto a real sound system and blow my mind a little. Lousy broken headphones. Mobius most certianly díníb influenced, as weíve come to expect from the boys, but there is definitely an evolution in the sound. The worries I had that it was regurgitated were quickly squelched, and about half way through it totally changes mixes it way more up. Totally rocking, but strangely rocking. And the Ac sense of humour ran through and through it. So is it a good album? Yes. If I can get into it on a boring train on the edge of the dessert, where Iím going totally stir crazy it is. What does it sound like? Great dance electronic edgy genre mixing, cool, neat fun.
