Borough 2 Borough is an album of slo-mo grooves—the kind of thing Andrew Weatherall plays at his A Love From Outer Space nights, and that Bill Brewster showcased on last year's Late Night Tales. Like Brewster, Clark in particular is an avid crate-digger—as we saw on his 2011 album of disco edits, Reekin'Structions—and snippets sliced from dusty old vinyl are draped across this LP.
You might say that 6th Borough Project's progress as a duo has the same crawling pace as their music. Nothing on Borough 2 Borough would sound out of place on their 2011 album, One Night In The Borough. Crisp beats and odd splashes of strings all turn up like clockwork. Granted, this gives subtle shifts, such as the way the bassline kicks into action on "Think It's Over," a power that would be lost amidst more cluttered production. Like a hypnotist swinging a watch before your eyes, they can easily lull you into a blissful state.
