I’ve already blogged about King Midas Sound so I’ll keep this one short.

Number 7: King Midas Sound – Waiting For You

Some years in the making, this is one of Kevin “The Bug” Martin’s most compelling releases in a career full of them. Claustrophobic and heavy but dispensing with the more abrasive elements of The Bug, this reminds me most of a dubbier Maxinequaye, which is no bad thing.  A “proper” album, and proper headphone music. Kinda makes me wish I still got stoned, although Waiting For You leaves you woozy enough as it is.
