After the squelching acid house of One Touch, All I Want is a complete gear change.
There are reference points aplenty here - and they all point to the mid-'70s. The thumping disco pianos and soft bass have Bowie and Roxy written all over them, but it’s that wailing guitar that’s most defining.
It sounds exactly like Robert Fripp’s guitar on Bowie’s Heroes and Brian Eno’s St Elmo’s Fire. It’s an uncanny recreation of the sound, originally made by painstakingly manipulating feedback.
But we shouldn’t be surprised: Murphy earned his stripes making guitars sound incredible for Six Finger Satellite (the previous incarnation of DFA mainstays, The Juan MacLean), The Rapture and more recently Free Energy.
