Though his discography may be impressive, the latest EP release from DJ Shadow was a bit disappointing. The production quality was decent, as there was a lot to listen to, but the first track, “Ghost Town,” had too many sounds that didn’t match up with one beat and made the track sound awkward. The intro sounded like a shitty remix of the Rugrats theme song—to add to that, the song transitioned halfway through into a more ethereal electronic beat from its original heavy rap sound, making me wonder why the artist didn’t make this into two separate songs. The highlight on the three-track album was “Six Days (Machinedrum remix).” The album is streaming at djshadow.com. –Julia Sachs
