Birdy Nam Nam - Manual for Successful Rioting [2009]

I kinda guessed I wouldn’t like this. And I was kinda wrong. most ‘bass’ music is formulaic, boring and enjoyed by kids from Croydon who think they live in the ghetto. It’s jungle for the new generation, with all of the shock and none of the awe. Birdy Nam Nam are a different prospect entirely, though on the surface they are just another bunch of rude boys with big subs and lots of swagger. manual for Successful Rioting, apart from being gorgeously produced by folks who clearly know their way around a music studio, is infected buckets of charm, inventiveness, and a flow that means when the bass does drop – and whoa, does it drop – things go seriously wonky.
