Nudge MP3

The latest free download from the Kranky label is a live version of Nudge‘s “No Come Back,” the closing track off the group’s Cahced album, released earlier this year (MP3). Consisting of Brian Foote, Paul Dickow and Honey Owens, Nudge have produced something so majestically subdued that it sounds like it consists entirely of splices, its life blood the stuff between the samples and triggers, when bits of sound are extruded until they are mere suggestion. Coy beats linger long enough to trip you up, flanges rise like distant sirens, voices whisper just beyond the realm of intelligibility, the whole thing daring your ear to bring it into focus, and your foot to locate a downbeat.
