FUCKED UP 'Dose Your Dreams'
The incomparable Fucked Up have outdone themselves with this double-album epic, their debut full-length for Merge. Read an excerpt from the Owen Pallett-penned bio: 'I was sent an unfinished version of Dose Your Dreams so that I might contribute string parts. I couldn’t stop listening to the rough mixes I received. A friend asked me how the record was. I replied, “My God, Fucked Up have made their Screamadelica.”'. And psych-rock-groove it is. The drums mixed wide, propensity for drones, for delay pedal, for repetition, groove. The politics and aesthetics of hardcore married to an “open format” approach to genre. Elements of doo-wop, krautrock, groove, digital hardcore.
