Pixelpussy - Das Mewntz
Powernoise, Rhythmic Noise One listens to Powernoise to hear a throbby crunchy stompy collection of loops sprinkled with sampled soundbites. It is meant to drive you on the dance floor from the knee down and the neck up. Powernoise is a simple genre; quite formulaic with a specific sonic palette. That's very cool. Great freedom can be found within well drawn boundaries.

Apparently the same can be said for Meower noise.

With so little to work with in terms of a musical vocab, one must ensure that what one delivers is good enough to separate from the rest. Pixelpussy provides fleeting moments of singularity, and attempts at humor (see above) but mostly Das Mewntz is a collection of the same old same old.

Pixelpussy deserve kudos for avoiding the usual cult movie and news sound bites. Unfortunately, I do not want to listen to 6 minutes of Charlie Sheen being a moron ("#winning"), 5 minutes of the cat girl crying and declaring her love of cats ("Katzenfan"), or 4 minutes of that viral video rapist guy ("Rapist [Bed Intruder]"). I don't want these people (or any other YouTube viruses) in my music library.

I know it's supposed to be funny. I know it could be social commentary. But music appreciation is mostly a matter of taste. My tastes veer clear of the mildly mentally retarded. If it's been on Tosh.0, it doesn't need any more of my attention. Not to mention, using viral videos as your harvest field for samples gives the music a fad equivalent of a pet rock.

"Flatline McDubbin" drops the tempo and funks the beat, and the last 4 songs (all remixes) add more flavor to the menu. The save goes to Dacaboya for his remix of "Buzzkill".

If it were a chef, Powernoise would never be able to serve foi gras, but it could cook one helluva deep fried fluffer- nutter. Meower noise is jelly toast. Cut in half. With the crust trimmed off.

(Please take note that I bypassed the obvious route of kitty-laden references in this review, though you may feel free to line yer litter box with it.)
