Spy Porn MP3s

Daghoti‘s I’ve Got Braces, Too! is 11 tracks of what might have been referred to as mashed-up sound clips before the term “mash” came to signify the coy yoking together of specifically two unlike riffs. Pulsing like cheap neon, tawdry as all get out, the album rarely juggles fewer than a half dozen different sources at a given time, yet never lapses into chaos-for-plunderphonics’-sake. This may be the best fake spy tunes and porn-score cues since Funki Porcini’s Hed Phone Sex. While it’s entirely understandable why swaths of ambience and chunks of automaton electronica are available for free download from countless netlabels, the availability of an album like Daghoti’s is unusual, given the evident painstaking craft (a word that may sound silly in light of the snippets of dirty dialogue, but it still applies). The big question, though, isn’t why this is being given away. It’s why hasn’t Ninja Tune Records picked it up for distribution? Check it out at WM Recordings (wmrecordings.com).
