Pick of the Day – November 7th: Darkstar – North

Darkstar – North

The first thing that popped into my head when I heard the first track was Pendulum…the drum/bass outfit, that went into the direction they probably hoped to go into, but weren’t sure how, so they found a way in through electronics.  Perhaps, Darkstar wanted to be someone else….maybe be Radioheadish, Kraftwerk 2010.  It’s a tad jarring at first….but it smooths out on you.  At some point, you stop looking for what you were expecting and you embrace what’s there.

And what’s there is really good.  It works well.  They have successfully transformed into who they wanted to be…..a band hardcore dubstep fans can listen to when they aren’t listening to dubstep.  Recommended.
