NHK - Mogra
Holy. Fuck. Guys. This is it. ROTY 2010. Callin it right now.
NHK's Special is a motherfuckin understatement and a half. "Special" doesn't even begin to describe the awesomeness of Special. This record is OUTSTANDING. Like infinite Reese's Cups amazing. No, like giant ridable bunnies amazing. That's how ridiculously good this record is.
This is some of the best electronic music I've ever heard. It takes noise, dubstep, glitch, some other mysterious sounds, and makes something unlike anything else I've heard (including NHK's debut, Ununumium). It's so fucking dirty & crisp, precise & distorted, like if Dan Friel did techno and put out a record with Kid606 in his Down With The Scene days. The sort of thing I would listen to every day for the past 2 months (hypothetically, of course).
Special is sold out at Important, but probably still available at various shops if you search around. And trust me. It is totally fucking worth it to search around. Only 300 of these bad boys were made. Maybe more will come later, but until then, do yourself a favor and make finding a copy of Special your number one priority 'cause NHK are fucking tearing it up.
