Quote by:
Will Oldham

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

Avey Tare and Kria Brekken: Pullhair Rubeye

Image Hosted by

A magical dream that we awake from. Those moments of life through blurry eyes. That line in which we cling to between realities. This is where Pullhair Rubeye lives and prospers.

With this release and Panda Bear's earlier release, "The Animal Collective" are taking over my best of lists for '07 like a storm. Pullhair is an album that needs to be experienced. It's not something that can be just thrown on, it's an event, a journey, and it's one of the most thought provoking and mind bending experiments I've heard this year.

Officially being released as reversed versions of the recorded tracks, and by all means I respect the artist's wishes and in some ways it thrives this way, but just listen to tracks like Opis Helpus or Who Wellses in My Hoff in the reversed versions of the lp (the forward versions) and be blown away. They had to figure that it was going to be done, even if it's the consumer who flips them in some editing program.

The perfect release in my opinion would have been a two disc release, with both versions, heck I'd spend the extra dough for that. I know there are those who will say that I, or anyone, shouldn't reverse these tracks to hear what was recorded because this is not what was released, but I say to you, just listen...just listen. Below is the released track and a reversed version. Enjoy.
