Boomkat Product Review:
Like a good cup of tea or a Crunchie, you always know what you’re in for when you’re lucky enough to get your hands on a brand new Wagon Christ album. This is Luke Vibert’s umpteenth record under the moniker, and since the classic ‘Throbbing Pouch’ all those years ago he’s had a certain section of the listening public literally weeing themselves for fresh material. It’s no slouch either, within seconds the avalanche-like tumble of samples sets ‘Toomorrow’ up to be everything you want from a Vibert record and more. Vocal snippets and familiar boom-bap references form the album’s rusty anchor, but Vibert manages to shoehorn in so many genre nods it’s hard to keep up at times. I can here Drexciyan tones in the creepy acid standout ‘Manalyze This!’, the kind of disco goodness last heard on Vibert’s Kerrier District records on ‘My Lonely Scene’ and Isaac Hayes-influenced Blaxploitation groove on ‘Respectrum’. It’s almost hard to keep up with Vibert’s ADD, but with his keen attention to detail, and most importantly his attention to solid grooves ‘Toomorrow’ proves to be a consistently rewarding sesh.
