boom bip and charlie white - Music For Sleeping Children
**White vinyl** Intriguing concept album by the notably absent Boom Bip and his buddy Charlie White. The premise lies in an exploration of "thinking about the contemporary American teenager as a child (secondary consumer) transitioning into adulthood (consumer) within the 'haze' or 'dream' state that is both biological and social. I see the liminal (from child to adult) state of adolescence in contemporary consumer culture as a sleep state, and like sleep, it is a period of dreams and nightmares." This manifests as five tracks utilising interviews with American teen girls layered to electroid disco rhythms and melodies. Oddly enough, in the wake of real teen electro reflections like Farrah Abraham's ultra-saccharine pops, E+E's icky dreampop or the hyper-edited and over-stimulated cut-ups of Ryan Trecartin, the project feels a bit tame by comparison, going too easy on the dissonance and piquant electro tones while the kids are accelerating their own culture to fascinating degrees. Instrumentals included on B-side.
