ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A definite change of pace from the mostly guitar driven tracks of the past, 37 takes a more atmospheric approach to Lopside's signature sound. Acoustic and electronic percussion swim behind ever evolving layers of strings, synthesizers, and wordless vocals on the latest album, collectively creating the highly detailed textures fundamental to Lopside's music.


Creator Dean Hinds explains both the inspiration behind the album's obscure title and Lopside's new sound:
"I received a 'hand me down' pager as a gift from a friend who complained that I was too difficult to get a hold of. My unwillingness to use such a device was only further enforced by the pager's erratic behavior, the pager's voicemail frequently filling with unintelligible messages. On one particular afternoon I received 37 voicemail messages, all of them inhuman beeps, buzzes, and other random bursts of electronic noise. I recorded the messages, and those sounds later became the basis for many of the tracks on 37."

Avoid catching space diseases.
I think 'Autechre' has a quaint religious cousin out there, and her name is 'Lopside.' I was first fascinated with the spacey intros and medatative non-cadence. I was happy to hear there was more. The songs weave seamlessly into one another. A perfectionist might think someone ruined the track-spacing on the disc, and if that's the case, it worked out well. For six bucks, it's a lot of good music to listen to while driving, thinking or napping. The neatest part of it, is I swear the songs change slightly each time, for I hear more details and whispers, scratches and tones, depending on what speakers or headphones it plays through. Again, if not intended, a great effect. Space IDM ('Intelligent Dance Music'-- awful term, but it stuck I guess) deal of the year. Well done.
