Feb 15 2009, 15:10 di ChucklebuckTue 9 Dec – Pendulum
Originally written for The Skinny magazine, but they never plublished it, so I'll post it here.
With the release of the excellent In Silico at the beginning of the year, Pendulum have essentially spent the last twelve months touring endlessly, and it shows at this, their last live performance in Scotland of 2008. Their stagecraft has improved since the beginning of the year, despite them being brilliantly skilful already, and the boys certainly know how to get a crowd going, as their return to the Carling Academy is loud, exhilarating and simply breathtaking. Taking to the stage after the brilliant South Central DJs have set the mood for the night and gotten the crowd pumped up, the band’s setlist is perfect, brilliantly setting the pace of the night with pounding drum ‘n’ bass tunes punctuated by fan favourites such as the western-tinged Propane Nightmares, the pulse-pounding Blood Sugar and the brilliantly defiant Showdown…

Giu 9 2008, 23:23 di oruwuPendulum's album In Silico seemed amazing at first, but as the novelty wore off, it seems like the album is unfinished, and raw. The whole aspect behind Hold Your Colour was that every aspect of each song was in some way related to DnB, but somehow new and interesting. In Silico does draw from the same sources of emotion, it seems, but leaves the feelings less explored and void of detail. Take for instance, the large introduction of Slam giving you the huge jolt of energy straight into the drive behind the rest of the album, whereas Showdown has a lower driving force and basically does not drive the listener into the same mental state that it seems Pendulum was more than capable of doing. Showdown even has what seems like simple timing issues when returning from the interesting tripleted section. Even Calyx's recent album Anatomy includes there driving opener The Divide which is much more entertaining.
The positives to the album are in Granite which happens to be my most listened to track. …
Mag 25 2008, 20:38 di Namelis1So, In Silico.
Pendulum is really, really good when it comes to making Drum and Bass. So, having topped the DnB scene with Hold Your Colour I had my hopes, that In Silico will continue that trend. Was I in for a shock.
2008 came and with it, Granite came out. It was flawless. Just stunning. It's still one of my favorite tracks of the year.
After that came Propane Nightmares - more of the same epic sound.
After waiting a while - In Silico came out.
It had the great sounding Propane Nightmares, a weirdly toned down version of Granite. But then. Wait, whats this? What the. Wheres the Drum and Bass? Its just weird electro-rock bred with DnB.
I'll use a nerdy analogy, because lets face it. I'm a nerd.
In Silico is like a half-elf, born from the love of a human father, and an elven mother.
The humans, look at the half-elf and go - "Hey look, Elven scum, get out of our town."
The elves on the other hand look at the half-elf and go all "Leave our sacred forests Human."

Simian Mobile Disco just keep putting out good tracks with some inspired mixes. Hustler gets the brooding dub treatment from Skull Disco stalwart Shackleton which requires much volume to emerse yrself in its disorientating lushness. This hustler is waiting for you, hood down, at the depot at 2am when you fell asleep on the night bus and woke up in the dark. So dance by all means but try not to make eye contact.
Kevin Sounderson's mix is light relief in comparison but the mood is still heavy - this Hustler is off joyriding down the Dartford Tunnel heading towards the North Circular after scoring something quiet possibly illegal off a late night security gaurd daahn Lakeside.
The vinyl is a wicked purple and sparkley colour - hooray!
Armand Van Heldon works a Sequencer with predictable punishment and keeps the lyrical hooks flowing which makes for a club groove along the lines of the Chemicals but its got no fire or direction and lacks any real original ideas. …
Nov 8 2007, 19:29 di GregKNicholsonLast week's Round-up didn't happen very much, primarily because I was on my way to see ¡Forward, Russia! at Fibbers. Tiny venue + The Russia = believe the hype.
Tony Blackburn (on the Roundtable panel this week) is spot on when he describes Long Road to Ruin by Foo Fighters as “acceptable”; it's generic mainstream rock music.
Nas is the only thing wrong with Less Than An Hour: there's also that bloke from Gnarls Barkley (Cee-Lo) singing over the sultry rhythm, and an anonymous, close-mic'ed French-accented woman introducing the song. The music is filmic (it's for Rush Hour 3); it reminded me of a semi-noir-ish lone cop (Hack, perhaps) on a nocturnal street. But Nas insists on borrowing Kanye West's (and presumably innumerate other rappists') habit of gulping “yih!”; fortunately, his (vocal) contribution to the song is relatively limited.
Duffy's voice is, in Rockferry, reminiscent of Adele in Hometown Glory. The music, though, is slow…
