Smoke Notes

'Tracks For Horses' is not something to play at the races or even a fluffy new age album for middle aged hippies, though the odd hippy probably contributed to its contents - it is in fact a compilation from Manchester based label Melodic, who are celebrating their twentieth release with this sampler of their roster and musical spectrum. The content is widely varied but held together by an experimental sense of fun and innovation, the music is never heavy handed, it's just personal and those with a love for things a little different will no doubt be left completely satisfied. Baikonour's opener "Lick Lokoum" is a textured slice feedback, while Notes "It's A Good Thing" is abstract Hip-Hop from a very English perspective. Further in and No Talent Kid samples Rick James' 'Mary Jane', turning the Cocaine fueled monster into an odd instrumental funk number. The labels more established artists Pedro and Minotaur Shock provide "Folded Arms" and "Big Light" respectively - folksy electronica at its finest, like Badly Drawn Boy if he wasn't on a major and still made music at home in the bedroom or lounge. Full of constant surprises, 'Tracks For Horses' is really for the people, and at its best is some of the best electronica on the market, along with the likes of Rephlex or Warp, Melodic look set to become a leader in the world of electronic music. Recommended.
