As far as the last few weeks of the Thursday show go, I could write about a few of the record store scores that I played or even some of the old cassette tapes that I dug out of an old drawer, but I can hardly bring myself to write about any of this because all that I want to do is just listen to this new Giant Claw album. We’ve played numerous Giant Claw releases on the weekly show and the podcast show over the past few years and they’ve all been great, but Dark Web marks a noticeably new direction, and a dizzyingly infectious one at that, for Keith Rankin, the talented artist behind Giant Claw. Here he’s working in the vein of an avant producer, assembling these hyperkinetic, yet highly emotive, pop miniatures using sound samples lifted from across the contemporary micro-genre landscape. Honestly, this type of music isn’t something I normally get overly enthusiastic about, but Rankin has a way of arranging these sounds in such a way that I find quite refreshing. You can (and should) pick up this album right now from Orange Milk or Noumenal Loom Records.
