Dawn of Midi

Brooklyn trio Dawn of Midi’s album Dysnomia made The New Yorker’s Best Albums of 2013 list and NPR Music's 50 Favorite Albums of 2013. Well well. Bankie says it’s something like “future jazz” or “traditional instruments covering electronic music,” but I’m thinking this is more obsessive-compulsive sconce-cleaning music. Pot cookie and I were nervous about these ultra-repetitive, pretentious-seeming sounds. Are we stupid for not “getting it”? Would this music make sense if pot cookie were actually Adderall cookie? Or maybe the proper drugs are simply a deep-v and a copy of Finnegans Wake? To be fair, once you get past the initial whyyy-is-this-record-skipping? annoyance, DoM’s kind of an interesting exercise in organically-changing minimalism and pestering the boundaries/expectations of instruments. Kind of. EMILY NOKES
