BURNSIDE PROJECT
The Networks, The Circuits, The Streams, The Harmonies


The Network, The Circuits, The Streams, The Harmonies is the Burnside Project’s recording debut as a flesh-and-blood band, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. “Cut and pasted and recut and refucked with” is how one critic put it. But they’ve ditched the overarching irony, the tongue-in-cheek/deadpan-chic attitude of the “electro” scene, for a collection of midnight confessions from a dark corner of the dance floor. The Burnside album is almost cinematic in scope, or at least indie-cinematic, evoking the kind of skittering drum-n-bass rhythms that jacked up the tension in Darren Aronofsky’s Pi.
