Editorial Reviews

bEEdEEgEE is the performing alias of Brian DeGraw, an American artist, musician and producer who lives and works between the inner city and the Catskill region of New York state. Most commonly known in the music world for his work at the centre of Gang Gang Dance and their musical mastery, SUM/ONE is his debut record as a solo artist. Written and recorded over the course of a year in his Woodstock studio, the W0RMB1N, SUM/ONE initially began life when Brian left New York City - his home for the past twelve years - for the clouds of Woodstock. Amidst the peace of this new environment, the audio sketches he worked on gradually evolved into a project that fuses familiar deep synth soundscapes with audacious pop moments. The nine tracks that comprise SUM/ONE also feature the vocal talents of Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Lovefoxxx (CSS), Lizzi Bougatsos (Gang Gang Dance) and Douglas Armour.

Format:Audio CD
Came across this via allmusic.com and Spotify. I'm not familiar with the artist's previous work or collaborations. So while I may not provide much guidance for fans, perhaps I can help those who might wonder if this is worth taking a listen.

The album has a very stream-of-consciousness feel to it with songs, melodies and textures flowing into one another. There's too much melody to be ambient but it doesn't have the standard hooks you might expect in a pop album. Imagine if DJ Shadow's "Endtroducing" and My Bloody Valentine's "Loveless" got their freak on while some kid sat in the corner playing with an old Casio keyboard and you get an idea. Vocals tend to drift in and out like other textures. It might sound flippant but with this album if you don't like what your hearing, wait 30 seconds, it will change.

What's really impressive is that the whole thing feels cohesive and organic. While there are so many and varied sounds they all coalesce to be more than the sum of their parts while still being enjoyable on their own. So if you like electronica this could be up your alley. It has a few beats but it's not really a dance record. This is a put on those nice headphones and close your eyes record. Just like the cover photo, there's enough there to imply many different shapes, without really becoming one.
