Requesting that their identities remain unknown, the enigmatic Dr. Smith & Professor Ludlow follow March's debut release for Fat Cat with another solid 5-track EP that highlights their humour and their seriously, seriously skewed atmospherics.
Where the earlier 12" offered a poppier, more floor-friendly exercise, 'Rinsin' With The Doctors' drags their sound to a darker, more twisted zone.'Do You Like Trains' sees its producer babbling insanely across a tense field of rippling, slowly building synth-loops. 'A Tribute To Roger Hammond' is a brief, percussive sketch dissolving into itself. 'Tall Buildings' is a massive, towering track of gritty overspill-noise, mangled voices and squelchy, phat, fucked-up hiphop dynamics. Whilst 'Life Of A Loach' comes over all woozy, virtually beatless and noodling around a G-funk synth sound.
Stunningly produced, Smith & Ludlow mess with your head, whilst providing compulsive listening.
