Of Everything And Nothing
Scott Crow has a pedigree. Boy does he have a pedigree. Having opened for every major electronic and industrial act you can think of from Nine Inch Nails to Front Line Assembly with his band Lesson Seven, he was also the driving force behind Audio Assault and Corporate Uncle.
Did I mention the Scott has written several books?
Oh, and he also founded and runs the anarchist collective and record label eMERGENCY heARTS. He speaks regularly about anarchism too. So you may have come across him somewhere, even if you don't know it yet.
Aside from all of this, in his spare seconds between running things, he composes and releases high quality electronic and ambient music under his own name. 'Of Everything and Nothing' has elements of The Orb, past collaborators Meat Beat Manifesto and Adrian Sherwood, as well as acts like Delerium.
Impeccably recorded and produced, it weaves a carefully curated path between portentous, trance-y and glacial. This man knows his craft, creating the feeling of a soundtrack to a science fiction epic yet to be made, yet with backwards musical references to sixties counterculture hidden deep within its grooves.
'Of Everything and Nothing' is a significant work that needs to be sat down and listened to.
