The 1994 LP D.I. Go Pop was a shot heard ’round the corner, if that: a lost masterpiece of evocative blur channeling Joy Division's melodic gloom through My Bloody Valentine's blissful noise-swarms, with sample loops outgunning the guitars. It was born from the prescient EPs collected here, all recorded by the London trio Disco Inferno between 1992 and 1994. Yearning vocals battle the din; "Summer’s Last Sound" is built on bass and birdcalls. Elsewhere, shattering glass forms a rhythm; song structures coalesce and dissolve. It's a chance for new futurists to discover what they're still catching up to.

    “Long Walk Home”

    Bruce Springsteen | 2007

    When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
