An Album Review
By Wanda Perkins
Jason A. Mullinax released his album Home World on August 8, 2015.
Here is an otherworldly collection of hyperactive noise fun, featuring soundscapes of spacey synth floating over lively beats. The songs are energetic, intricately woven and precise, conveying an odd personality of playfulness and perfectionism. Home World is most definitely percussion driven, with self-described “cut-n-paste aesthetics” breaking up sounds to keep things interesting at all times.
There is never a dull moment in this album. At times it ventures timidly into a soothing dream space, only to leap back out into another rhythmic frenzy. The vocals when they do appear sound like bizarre alien chants, sometimes up front, but more often mixed back subtly, creating atmosphere.
Listening to Home World is a ride like no other– not recommended for the faint of heart or the boring. It may make you want to dance, in the home alone/ when no one is watching kind of way. This masterpiece traverses boundaries of music in all the most exciting ways. Get ready to get weird.
