Boy Scout of America // Bad Dreamer
It’s been quite a while since I’ve shared anything from Kyle Lambert (over a year! gee whiz!). The Philadelphia noisemaker turned producer known as Boy Scout of America has been plenty busy in the meantime though. Molting layers of noise and watching them blow away down the street, Kyle has emerged on the other side a more than competent producer; and yet he still retains the gnarled edge of his earlier content.
Although I’m not really a connoisseur of electronic music, Bad Dreamer is really scratching the occasional beats ‘n bass itch for me. On it Kyle manages to combine elements of mangled noise, industrial, and hip-hop into an amalgam that’s all his own. Even though there are so many great tracks on the album, the easy standout for me is “Say It Out Loud”, a collaboration with b.u.i.l.t. (Lord knows how much I adore that guy). I mean, come on, once Burke’s vocals crashed the party I was emphatically sold on what was already building up to be a great album.
Oh, and if you’re the sort that likes free stuff you can grab Bad Dreamer for free for a couple days (or until Kyle changes his mind).
