SubVersion Stop 76: Muttley - Tension Is A Ruse (February 2010)

"Tension Is A Ruse" partners "Closing Down" in the mix series. Contrary to "Hum", it's unsettling, hence should be used sparingly. I have never been an early bird, preferring the tranquility of nighttime. "Tension Is A Ruse" is a constant alarm call for the senses - albeit it's nowhere near gabba. Several tracks are in the guise of excerpts, dropping out, planing off, where complacency is hard to nail. Bat For Lashes ornament with vocals, whereas every track has a tense property to it. Combined together, it can trick the mind into believing haste is necessary, or that it's time to awaken out of trance state.

  2. was the post status reset to draft?
    if not, it's probably just junk email

  3. It was reset to draft. I've re-published it, as I have no clue of the basis of any wrongdoing.
