Matthew Herbert Secondhand Sounds (Peacefrog) Rating: NNNN Rating: NNNN

While not as cohesive or conceptually driven as previous albums like Around The House or last year’s Bodily Functions, this two-disc collection of remixes is essential listening for any Herbert fan and also serves as a good introduction to one of techno’s most innovative producers. From the glitchy pop of his remix of Moloko’s Sing It Back to the chopped up, abstract cocktail jazz of his Gutter Dub mix of Two Banks of Four’s Street Lullaby, Secondhand Sounds successfully captures what makes Herbert so unique, even if it is made up of other people’s material.
