Listing Detail Tabs

On JUNK SCIENCE, Deep Dish's take on dance music focuses on the kind of end-of-the-rave grooves that are the perfect accompaniment to the coming of dawn--it is not too fast, too dense, or too aggressive. It begins with a shimmering guitar line of "Intro - Morning Wood" that suggests Slowdive at its more wistful moments. The cool techno-jazz of "The Future of the Future (Stay Gold)" is a collaboration with Everything But the Girl (that also appears on that group's TEMPERAMENTAL album) featuring the velvet tones of Tracy Thorn on vocals. "Stranded," the second of four tracks (five if you include the dub remix of "Mohammad Is Jesus") sung by Richard Morel, features a smooth groove--piano, guitar, and beat loop--reminiscent of New Order's LOW LIFE period. The title track is a beat-less ambient excursion with sweeping sound waves and electronic bubbles that would be perfect as the musical accompaniment to an underwater documentary film. Both "My Only Sin" and "Monsoon" add some muscle to the mix to great effect.

What the critics say...

Spin (12/98, p.182) - 8 (out of 10) - "...Deep Dish's full-length debut is a rare feat of dexterity--at once floor-slammer, hooky pop album, and contemplative, ambient mood-piece....JUNK SCIENCE serves as a reminder that soul never died, it just found a new place to dwell: deep house."
Q (4/00, p.107) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...open to the kind of experimentation that might have seen them slot in [for] Underworld. JUNK SCIENCE certainly wasn't short of decent ideas..."
