Blockhead, Interludes After Midnight
2012 | Label: Ninja Tune

As whimsical and childlike as Ninja Tune mainstay Blockhead’s music can be, there’s no denying just how heavy every hook sounds, as if the weight of the world’s been placed on the producer’s shoulders. You can chalk some of that pathos up to the bittersweet samples that pepper tracks like “Tools of the Industry” and “Snapping Point” — subtly sinister nursery rhymes and grade-school loops that are layered over melancholic, grown-up melodies.

Music for Blockheadheads.

I'm a fan, but wasn't overwhelmed with the samples. Rest assured, if you purchase this album and give it a few listens, you'll be amazed. The songs all build wonderfully into seriously catchy melodies and rhythms. The whole album flows effortlessly, exposing the intricacies of his imagination in hyper-creative, playful, beautiful, bold, and powerful music. Not bad for a Blockhead!

Favorite album since "Music by Cavelight"

I love me some Blockhead, whether he's backing Aesop Rock or producing solo material, but this album in particular -- on third listen -- is knocking it out of the park in a way that Uncle Tony and Downtown Science didn't quite manage. It feels seamless and consistent from start to finish, and while that might sound like it gets repetitive, it feels more like a constant evolution than a retread. Gone are the up-pitched voice choruses (well, not completely, but definitely not used to the same effect as on older tracks like Insomniac Olympics). I'm less jazzed by the wholesale use of sung material, as opposed to the older snatched-sample stuff, but it's growing on me fast. Super solid record.
