Indie Folk

Fussell's excellent William Tyler-produced debut is steeped in Southern blues and folklore, but infused with an originality all his own.

Full On - Mask Hysteria

1992

Club/Dance

The one and only full-length by the masked rave duo is still one of the high points of the era. Blatantly swiping samples from Detroit techno and earlier U.K. acid house pioneers like 808 State and piling on samples of crowd noise, their tracks were ecstatic, cartoonish, and loads of fun. The album was recently reissued on vinyl (with bonus tracks and remixes) after not being available on wax since its original 1992 release. Watch your bass bins, I'm tellin' ya!
