Psycho Sounds: Murderbells of Mempho
Made this months ago but have sitting on it meaning to write, slowed down by fatherhood. The 6th and most involved Twankle & Glisten mixtape. Internet revisionism, a made-up genre. If Second Line is celebratory funeral music, this is its mirror: hypnotic swirls of robot cowbell to premeditate murder to. I've layered the tracks, added echo and samples. A lot of inbetween moments put to use here: outros, intros, roll calls, interludes, instrumentals, as though cowbell cuts are emergent phenomena like sidewalk weeds that sprout up naturally in the cracks between songs when the conditions are goldilocks. These tracks range from slow to very slow, excepting only some double time shit like the Alkatraz Ridaz cut, which is the mix's only professional seeming production and incidentally one of its most intricate cowbell loops.
