Wow. This release completely flew by me, but I'm glad I had the chance to listen to it--it's one of the best albums I've heard all year. Clubroot turns atmospheric dubstep into an art-form, masterfully blending heavy synths and basses with garage rhythms and some chopped-up, down-tuned vocals. The album is very reminiscent of Burial, Scuba and Synkro; a bit derivative perhaps, but you won't hear me complaining.
