First Dog to Visit the Center of the Earth - Corecore
First Dog (to Visit the Center of the Earth) finished Corecore late last year and--Cinderella--it was released this year by Debacle Records. So congrats First Dog and congrats Debacle, because Corecore is phenomenal. First Dog (aka Jack Rodriguez) has been pretty prolific since starting FDVCE and has produced a lot of amazing music, but for my money Corecore is his finest achievement. The album is incredibly imaginative and weird and everything that is great and lacking in most beat-driven electronic music. It stands shoulder to shoulder with genre gods like Matmos and Mouse on Mars at their best. An album I'll most certainly be mentioning again come list-making time.
