Best New Music – Fuck Buttons

BEST NEW MUSIC

Fuck Buttons “Street Horrrsing” (ATP)

Recently, I posed the question whether or not UK’s Fuck Buttons could be 2008’s answer to Battles. Battles of course released the genre fucked Mirrored last year to great fanfare. While Fuck Buttons might not be as wildly experimental as Battles, Street Horrrsing is able to defy categorization. Originally, the duo was formed as a noise ensemble. Smartly though, Fuck Buttons decided to infuse their noise with sharp bursts of rhythmic melody. When the line between noise and melody is blurred at such a fascinating level, it’s a beautiful proposition. The listener is forced to examine their own preconceived notions. Street Horrrsing is not just a collection of songs, it is a medley of visually radiant moods. From peaceful to violent, Fuck Buttons never fail to make the listener truly feel their craft. As each song bleeds into the next, Fuck Buttons might sound like a harsh, droney mess to some. But buried beneath the surface is a well worn restraint that hypnotizes. Street Horrrsing is a gorgeous and enveloping sound that must be felt to be fully understood.
