People Like Us

You know it's a good day when you wake up to a new People Like Us album. The sound collage pieces of People Like Us (AKA- Vicki Bennett) are always pleasantly weird, wandering between hilarious and dark, and at times catchy as all hell. Lines from the Wide Open Spaces album were repeated ad infinitum at 2008's Autonomous Mutant Festival and, for that, I am forever grateful to her. The new album, Welcome Abroad, was made while stuck in the U.S. after Iceland's volcanic eruption made air travel to her native Britain an impossibility. An interesting commentary on travel and home ensues.
