Chi-town introvert Dave Fischoff makes impressive use of his library card on his third album, The Crawl. He spent months ransacking the Chicago Public Library sound collection, then scurried back to his basement lab to cut obscure orchestral samples and weave them into tracks with heavy synth, drum loops and processed vocals. As is often the case with the computer and sampling auteur thing, the record's vision is very singular, but it's not annoying in that 'Look what I did' kind of way. You can tell Fischoff had solid song ideas first and then just spent time adding to them. Tracks like The Suburbs Of Eden and Last Room prove Fischoff can sing a great melody line, too. He's not just piling on layers of cool clips, but sorta building the house around the living room.
