Sitting (or possibly bouncing off the walls) at the furthest and most difficult end of Ninja Tune’s increasingly broad spectrum, is Andrew Broder as Fog and his second album Ether Teeth. It’s difficult to know where to begin, such is the magnitude of things crammed into this record. Fog seems to have the ability to directly transfer the contents of his head into music. And those contents comprise a strange brew, with elements of country and western, jazz, hip-hop, rock, blues and electronica all circling each other in a peculiar dance. For every moment of blatant beauty-for example the short but strangely sweet “CheerupCheerily” and the spellbinding “UnderAAnvilTree”-there’s a moment of pure confusion. Ideas and threads, both musical and vocal, constantly float past your grasp of comparison, which, ultimately, is a good thing.
