Four Tet | DNO124
Kieran Hebden is one of those artists whose receptive audience is without classification. And that extends into the world of musical colleagues. Four Tet has commandeered fans and collaborators as wide reaching as experimental rock bands (Radiohead), massive pop acts (Coldplay), underground hip hop producers (the late J Dilla), post-punk influenced upstarts (Bloc Party), electronic mavericks (Aphex Twin), folk chanteuses (Beth Orton & Juana Molina) and jazz legends (with Kieran's ongoing collaboration with drummer Steve Reid).
You can try and pack it all in two CDs, but as they say on ESPN's Sports Center, "you can't stop him, you can only hope to contain him!" Read it and weep (for joy).
