Captain of None

April 6, 2015

Alternative/Indie Rock

Colleen's A Flame My Love, A Frequency was one of the year's best albums, just as Captain of None was in 2015. Her Thrill Jockey debut is breezy yet powerful, percolating with a mysterious insistence reflected in each of its portraits of splendid isolation and independence. Equally wild and thoughtful, this is some of Colleen's boldest, most eclectic music.

1995

Jungle/Drum'n'Bass

One of the few non-compilation full-lengths released by legendary breakbeat hardcore/jungle label Suburban Base, D'Cruze's only proper album is a classic slice of mid-'90s jazzy, intelligent drum'n'bass. The downtempo tracks aren't the highlights, but the producer's knack for lush textures and choppy, rolling beats make the jungle tracks some of the best of their era. Originally issued in 1995, it was released in America a year later with new artwork, a new title (Cruzin'), and a revamped tracklist.
