Gatekeeper's Aaron David Ross reappropriates muzak on this nightmarish cod reggae song.
Later this month, ADR – AKA Aaron David Ross, AKA one half of Gatekeeper – will release his second solo LP, ‘Chunky Money’, for Hippos In Tanks. It’s a very Hippos In Tanks sort of record, too, promising to be a selection of re-appropriated lifestyle music – muzak gone through the grinder, essentially. Stray Dog Strut lives up to this promise. On its surface it resembles the sort of gentrified reggae-lite that appears as background music to workplace safety videos, but its so relentless in its innocuousness that it quickly becomes a paranoid k-hole of a listen.
