Released:
Label: Peak Oil
After four years of relative inactivity, Strategy (Portland, Oregon's Paul Dickow) returns with his finest album yet, effortlessly drawing together the elements that have always animated his music -- dub, Krautrock, techno, noise -- into an engrossing, organic whole. There are '60s-influenced psych-pop cuts like "Sugar Drop"; a heavy Afrobeat groove runs through "Objects of Desire" and "Baby Fever." The bubbling "Friends and Machines" might be disco for Deadheads, while "Saturn's Day" is a kind of dub blues. It makes sense that the album, his fourth, is self-titled; it feels like a rebirth.
