Nature of City
Nature of City is Josh Pillbox, an avante-garde producer the likes of which conservative Martian parents warn their genetically modified children about. Born in morose dejection, vocal melodies suspended in catatonia are surrounded by saw-toothed slap-basslines in a genre-bending ejaculation of mutant confetti.
NOC’s debut album “Spacemen Need Earthsuits” traipses the pages of a mad-hatter’s psyche eval. From the jazz/funk mania of “Big Tommy” to the macabre “Ugly Like Me” that feels more like a euphoric crawl into a dense and menacing digital beehive, this record is a rejuvenating head cold, slathered in intricate poly-rhythmic syrup and electro-funk-hardcore-prog glory.
