Oddateee is sort of similar.



Same with that Spiral Walls Containing Autumns of Light album by Divine Styler.



To be honest I've never been a big fan of Dalek, although Absence is a very good album.

One of very few "Sonic Sum" tunes on YouTube. Not the best of the best, but this is decent.

Damn, I was just about to recommend the Death Grips album for people that want a noisy experimental hip hop album.

Takyon is one of my favourite songs of the year. Good album. It'd be awesome to see them live.

Damn, I was just trolling around some random list on Rate Your Music and I came across Absence, and just tried it out of mild curiosity. Loving it. Most interesting hip hop I've heard in months. Years maybe.

As much as I love Death Grips and understand/appreciate the acclaim they get from critics and others for being, abrasive and "scary!" rap, I feel bad for Dalek because they are getting lost in the shuffle with this sudden rise in abrasive/alternative hip-hop thanks to Odd Future and Death Grips. Dalek certainly isn't the first to venture towards the darker side of hip-hop, but there is something much more terrifying listening to Absence compared to The Money Store. Death Grips are crazy and mentally unstable with their sound, some fairly intelligent lyrics not withstanding. Dalek, on the other hand, are flat out angry with both their sharpened, highly political lyrics and layers of dense, sub-sonic noise. Imagine if MC dalek didn't sound as calm and collected as he does, Absence would be a record of literal vitriol, rage and passion.

Anyway, Bat... If you want to check out more Dalek, Absence is the most abrasive they will get. However, Abandoned Language is still an incredible release and still as dark and political. The analogy I like to make is Absence is the soundtrack to hell, then Abandoned Language is the soundtrack to purgatory.

Good news is good.

Shame I didn't really care for the song. It sounded like some weird blend of my bloody valentine and a heartfelt hip hop song.

The new track is quite the banger as well.

Their new album, Endangered Philosophies, is now streaming on NPR. For anyone who wanted to hear Absence 2.0, this is the album you've been waiting for. After two listens, Endangered Philosophies is mush harsher and less spacey than Asphalt for Eden. But there isn't a track that stands out above the rest like It Just Is at the moment.
