Dimlite: My Human Wears Acedia Shreds EP

[30 January 2011]

By David Amidon

My Human Wears Acedia Shreds rings ironic to me as a title (Acedia means listlessness or sloth-like behavior), because this EP is both much more assured and much more listenable than Dimlite’s last project, Prismic Tops. Diligent PopMatters readers would note I generally loved Prismic Tops. This new EP goes in a different direction, focusing more on beat progressions than sound experiments and vocal music. Side openers “Kitty Cradle Fog” and “Metal Snake Rider”, in particular, fulfilling early-year needs for new fat beats. This is very good music for simply lazing around the house to.
