Title: Swept Up/Mindstorm
Release Date: 27th August, 2012
A few months back we had the pleasure of hosting Toronto’s BSU while he was on tour here in Australia; playing to discerning crowds around the country with great results. On his debut for Nonplus+, BSU gets rugged and nasty for Boddika’s imprint. The offset and grubby drums of ‘Swept Up’ are characteristically BSU – but there’s a warmer Detroit spirit at play which signifies the best of Basic Soul Unit’s work and marks this, up there with his finest. On the other side, ‘Mindstorm’ brews tense strings, escalating chords and rolling acid on a swung 4/4 rhythm, rounding out a fine ep indeed.
