Killer and filler


FOR an album that boldly proclaims to be All Killer, Gaslamp Killer's mix is a mixed bag.
To give the superbly-named Gaslamp Killer his dues, the DJing on this release is technically amazing - you can see why the Los Angeles act is gathering a reputation.
And boldly abstaining from anything even close to a standard, or even a vaguely familiar track, his Finders Keepers Records selection plundered from vaults stretching back over the past 40 years, is a voyage of discovery for the listener.
But for every unexpectedly funky Bollywood blast or sultry soulful blues number, there's a corresponding lull somewhere on the list.
And it's this downtime that ultimately stops All Killer from getting its claws in.
