DJ Dog Dick
Formerly of Baltimore and today thriving in Brooklyn, DJ Dog Dick is deeply representative of what some like to call the New Weird American aesthetic: an impulse that parties heartily and perversely at pop's expense while embracing punk, noise, and rap. The result is a gnarly, theatrical hybrid where separating those out strains becomes a fool's errand, and the only option is to submit wholeheartedly to Max Eisenberg's wavy, grainy mania. Difficult to stay what any of it really means -- recent album The Life Stain is a recombinant adventure - but, like a Lars Von Trier flick, it'll stick with you.
