Boomkat Product Review:
Given that the Breezeblock have been dribbling over Cursor Miner's 'Hair Of The Dog' for well over a year now, it's likely you'll have had your cochlea's exposed to at least a soupcon of new album 'Danceflaw' - and you know what? It's little corker! With a cover that hints at some kind of Daft Punk homage, Cursor Miner's third album is a SMART-bomb of electro blasted dance floor fodder (meant in a good way...) that calls to mind the likes of Andrew Weatherall, Felix Da Housecat and Jaques Lu Cont - wherein bendy rythms are wrapped around gut-throbbing bass and crazy-legs synths, with the net result being a caffeine enema for the soul. Kicking off with 'This Is Electro', Miner fires a warning shot over the more stagnant proponents of the genre - taking a grandstanding set of synths then undermining their stability through some histrionic beats that rotate their way deep within the cranium... then refuse to let up. Next up is the aforementioned 'Hair Of The Dog', wherein Cursor Miner brazenly stitches together some dubstep low-end and an upper level of frisky electronics - creating a charmingly brusque hybrid that knees you in the goolies then kisses your forehead. Elsewhere, 'Skunk Works' batters the senses like a E-number addled Radioactive Man, 'Ain't Talkin About Love' introduces cold-water synths of epic proportions, whilst the closing finale comes courtesy of twenty-minute 'Minermegamix' that distills the essence of his thundering live set into a machine ready chunk of plastic. Solomon!
