Fat Roland Soiled his birthday
A new techno track from Hounds of Hulme (aka Fat Roland) from Manchester. I like this one a lot. Free download – well, name your price.
We had Fat Roland’s Hounds of Hulme and the debut album T_CHN_L_GY a couple of weeks ago. That was good but a bit too knowing of its sources and slightly self-conscious. This time a track done quicker. It sounds raw but fresher. This is a moody little techno number which flicks the Vs. There’s a lot of welcome clattering, some abstract noise and a bit of melodic synth to stop it all falling apart. Like.
Fat Roland himself says of the track: “Birthdays are about presents, so here are two things. Firstly, a Hounds Of Hulme track I recorded today (see below). It’s a bit rough-and-ready, relying too much on preset instruments, but I like it. The energy from the track largely rose from watching the awful Olympic closing ceremony on iPlayer. In the words of Twitter’s ever-reliable funny bloke Vivmondo, “I suppose we’ll simply never know why David Bowie turned down the opportunity to appear alongside Ed Sheeran and a tape of Kate Bush.”"
