Escuchar este disco me hizo recordar lo alejado que he estado en los últimos años del rock; y es que después de tanto tiempo de no disfrutar de grupos como guided by voices o silkworm, ambulance sentir de un momento a otro cierta revelación y ver la maravilla que me estaba perdiendo, me ha hecho revaluar ciertos conceptos y pensar que el rock no está del todo acabado. A Summer Spent Inside podría ser catalogado dentro de un paquete rock, y aunque no suena a guided by voices si tiene mucho de sonido lo-fi, guitarras distorsionadas e indie, solo que con algo de programación. Este disco de 3x!13, compuesto por dos CD’s (que seguramente deben ser escuchados en varias sesiones debido a su largo minutaje), es muy disfrutable y mucho más si no eres un fan asiduo del rock.

“Electro? Post Rock? Alternative House? LoFi? Grunge? Game music? 80s? Progressive? How in the world do you clasify 3x!13?! What’s for sure is that this best of album contains a healthy dose of character and a whole lot of chutspa. This is the real deal, underground music like it should be. 3x!13 reaches down into each and every one of us. These tunes contain some of the sweetest melodies since Zelda came out and changed the course of humanity, as well as vague, catchy, and particularly smart lyrics.

rain. exploded shards. treeline outline greay. music by numbers in mud by feet, feel out the sound by sight. popping inwards while working out wounds in the 2-D monophonic boombox atmosphere. halloween at the 3 year mark, the journey never feeling an end; beginning with every other chord. dry heaves and synthetic textures overlaying the cartoon zombie insides, letting the good turn to bad as it makes way for sleep. as an unnatural fog gathers in the higher corners, the low thumping and bassline takes over the baseboards”.

A comienzos de siglo, drugs
cuando todo era house y sus derivados en estas tierras, advice recuerdo con gran aprecio al señor Bennett a.k.a. Micha Mirecki, con sus esfuerzos para Treibstoff y Pokerflat. Gratos recuerdos que volvieron en forma de musica al escuchar este maravilloso ep, que abre la larga lista de releases con la que ya cuenta Epsilonlab (obviamente muchos de ellos no tan buenos como este disco). Bennett que aunque hace un buen rato dejó de producir música para estos sellos, sigue produciendo y publicando en su sello propio llamado Kung Fu dub. Buena música, llena de ese sonido de Colonia que nunca pasará de moda.

“We first met Jeff at one of Eloi’s shows at London’s Fabric club. He was scheduled to play after Eloi and it was also his first gig in London. Over a few drinks beforehand, the three of us hit it off. But it wasn’t until later that we realized how much we liked his set and his music. As Jeff had already had a few releases out–on esteemed labels like Poker Flat–we knew we wanted to work with him.

This first release is all deep tech-house, the type that Jeff does with ease. The EP has a deep, groovy Cologne sound and will fill any space with a warm atmospheric breeze. And Final Scratch DJs will be pleased to have this release on-hand to not only open a set, but also to coax others onto the floor throughout the night.”
