Editorial Reviews

Guillermo Scott Herren (aka Prefuse 73) is nothing if not proven. It s hard to
think of a name that carries as much weight in both hip-hop and avant-rock
circles as Prefuse 73, who in the past year alone has been asked to remix TV
On The Radio, Pelican, BLK JKS and Cornelius, not to mention his early
collaborations with School of Seven Bells and Battles. These interactions have clearly helped to shape the evolving Prefuse 73 sonic aesthetic, which has expanded to include Herren s twisted visions of prog-rock, ''machine funk'' and global psychedelia.
For Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian, Herren rejected the idea of
straight digital recording and instead went the much more intensive route of
recording to analog Ampex tape, giving the album the sound of a lost tape of
exploratory studio musicians from the not-too-distant past. In addition to the
recording process, Ampexian also differs in its composition, existing as a tapestry of tracks of varying lengths and moods, albeit with a remarkable linear flow and, of course, unmatched rhythmic bump. From the drum machine prog of ''Parachute Panador'' to the driving noise jam ''Violent Bathroom Exchange'', it s easy to deduce that Prefuse 73 is comfortably
stretching out musically. ''Nature s Uplifting Revenge'' sounds as if broadcast from from a pirate radio station equally enamored with Animal Collective and J Dilla, while ''Simple Loop Choir'' is anything but simple...an expansive roboballad, featuring a vocoded chorus of Herren s voice and clouds of analog debris.

Are some of the songs short- yes. Would you like some to continue and unfold more- yes. Does it still flow great, almost like a continuous track and keep your head noddin- yes. Is it still good, solid Prefuse- absolutely.

In addition to flowing very well, there are some very nice standouts (ex. Regalo, DEC Funk All Eras, Fountains of Spring, Four Reels Collide, Nature's Uplifting Revenge, No Light Still Rocks, Simple Loop Choir, Yuletide, Digan Lo, Preparation Kids Choir)

For those initiated with the world of Prefuse 73- by all means, rock this at max volume- should have no trouble or problem riding the groove.

For those new, I still say this is a very fine listen, but do also def recommend One Word Extinguisher and Extinguished and the like.

I find the first review to be very inaccurate. I have all the P73 releases and rank this one in the higher section. Great grooves and beats, appealing sounds and all placed together nicely. The fact that some of the "songs" are good but short and blend into other nice tracks makes me want to just play the album all over again- much like Extinguished in that sense.

(Also- for those looking for more GSH '09 material- Savath y Savalas "La Llama" is also out (on Stones Throw). More good listening- but nothing like P73, so make sure you know that up front.)

Anyway- no qualms at all with this album. In fact, I'm gonna hit play again.

...something comes along and just takes my breath away. It doesnt happen as often as i wish it would, but when it does - hot damn, its pure magic. Before purchasing this album by hip-hop/electronic/glitch mad professor Scott Herren, i didnt think it would be a 5-star album. I just wanted some chilled glitchy beats to throw on when im in that certain mood for chilled glitchy beats. But when the album blasted open with 4 minutes of genious music crammed into seven tracks, i knew i was in for a ride.

'Everything She Touched' whizzes through each track, shifting straight onto the next, not letting you catch your breath - kinda like Ramones live when Dee Dee Ramone leapt the band from one song to the next in a matter of short breaths. Its exciting the whole way through, with very few dull moments (there are a couple, to be honest, but with 29 tracks it can't all be gold). The music is clever, with genious use of every sound and instrument he samples and cuts up. He uses leftover reverb from old vinyls, double bass guitars, choirs...shoved shoulder-to-shoulder with mind-bending hip hop beats. This is all pieced together and then violently thrown in a blender to create some really twisted, yet wonderful, tracks.

This is the kind of album that, from each listen, discover a new element within - a subtle backing track you didnt before notice amongst the sounds of vinyl hiss or some faint voices. Its a refreshing listening experience - something i have yet to find in many recent releases. Being an electronic music producer myself, i find myself scratching my head to many of these tracks thinking: "how the hell does he do this?" before the album suddenly leaps into the next song with a surprising twist. Pure brilliance.

If brevity is the soul of wit, then Prefuse 73's EVERYTHING SHE TOUCHED TURNED AMPEXIAN should be a laugh riot. But what it actually turns out to be is a psychedelic turn for Mr. Herren. The tracks morph quickly, with most having a touch of lightness to them, even on the beat-driven tracks like "Punish." But in most cases, if you don't like what you hear, wait a minute or so. You can sample the funk of "Half Up Front" or the Detroit robotics of "DEC. Machine Funk All ERA's." Jungle sounds rule the day in "When Is A Good Time?," while an lo-fi easy listening vibe jingles into "Fountains Of Spring" and folksy riffs of "Regalo." "No Lights Still Rock" brings in Dimlite for a mix of the archaic and the silly, for "Preperation's Kids Choir" to pick up later before "Formal Dedications" closes things out on a deeper note. Makes one wonder if everything that Mr. Herren touches also turns ampexian.

I get what some folks don't like about this album. But I can't agree. Even though the first several tracks sound like they probably should have been one big one, since they flow together, it really doesn't make a difference. I often like to pick my favorite songs out of an album and mix them together with other things I'm listening to, but in this case, here you get an album that is better listened to in it's entirety. Most of the tracks are pretty unusual anyway, so the best thing you can do is just listen to it all the way through. There are a ton of really impressive moments in there.

This is my favorite Prefuse 73 album so far.

This album is not about casual listening (I guess it depends on your definition of that). I thoroughly enjoyed the journey. Herron pushed the envelope of his art form on this one.
