Awkward MP3 Set

Definitely check out Awkward‘s new Suicide in Installments entry, Dreamt, which inserts a pop impulse into a range of more experimental sounds, finding a middle ground between melody and drone (“Brokt”) and livening up some stuttering beats (“Untitledtwo”). Those are arguably the two best cuts on a set that varies widely enough to be mistaken for a various-artists compilation. To its credit, SII doesn’t burden its releases with the additional files so common to netlabels, but a little more information wouldn’t hurt. What we get is an album and a title (which is which might even be confusing, though the site’s news page explains all) and the names of eight cuts. Check it out at suicideininstallments.com. Some more info and related links at Awkward’s myspace.com page.
