Review

Review Text Thought Unit's earlier EP is a decent enough offering, THE NARCOLEPTIC SYMPHONY, his dazzling, full-length follow-up, leaves it in the dust. Unit's appropriated enough of the rigors of his peers, such as Aphex Twin, Autechre, B12, and Germ, but this New York City resident has sculpted the nuances of his environs out of his DAT tapes.Drum-and-bass emerges with "Static Beef," IDM filters through serrated soundscapes in "Ringworm," and noisecore drilling sits astride sweeping trad synth patterns in "Phyllis Braineater." Unit's way of stitching these disparate elements together makes for a most unsettling listen. His art is confrontational, and his juxtaposition of electronica's peripheral components results in challenging music that begs repeated listens and yields continual rewards. Wakefulness is guaranteed during THE NARCOLEPTIC SYMPHONY.
