iTunes Review

Just a Souvenir was inspired by a waking vision that Tom Jenkinson had, in which he saw “a crazy, beautiful rock band play an ultra-gig; they played instruments either of their own design or conventional ones that were modified such that they could be used to generate a range of sounds not typically associated with a rock band”. He later said his memory of the vision was his only souvenir: hence the title of this wildly creative recollection. Just a Souvenir is his most amusing and accessible album, yet it’s also his strangest. The music is true to its dreamlike conception. While it builds on previous Squarepusher innovations, it seems disconnected from historical trends in electronica, as well as Squarepusher’s own catalog. While it integrates elements from such unlikely and disparate genres as '80s boogie funk, smooth jazz, and even thrash metal, Just a Souvenir most resembles the kind of 8-bit music heard on early Nintendo games. This feels more like the work of a band of microscopic aliens, virtuosic but visible only within the deepest recesses of some long-abandoned circuit board.

Customer Reviews

Awesome!

A great return from Squarepusher! One of the best albums of 2008

Just A Corker!

A great, well-rounded album from Mr Jenkinson. Even up to the last record (the almost-equal 'Hello Everything'), there were always a couple of annoying phonic meanderings which ruined the flow of the whole album, but thankfully there's nothing here to stop the slap-bass mayhem reaching maximum levels of wobbly funk! I love the total electro adventures that Squarepusher sometimes favours against the live instrumentation, but it's fantastic to hear the bass really high in the mix. I'd recommend this album as an ideal start in exploring the music of this total genius!

amazing!

This really is the best album in years, people and critics rave on about a lot of new bands like there something special, when real there not. this is the only album worth getting exited about this year. makes everything else look abit naff! .if your a genuine music lover download this now,i promise you, you won t be dissappointed.

Biography

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Tom "Squarepusher" Jenkinson makes manic, schizoid, experimental drum'n'bass with a heavy progressive jazz influence and a lean toward pushing the clichés of the genre out the proverbial window. Rising from near-total obscurity to drum'n'bass cause célèbre in the space of a couple of months, Jenkinson released only a pair of EPs and a DJ Food remix for the latter's Refried Food series before securing EP and LP release plans with three different labels. His first full-length work, Feed Me Weird Things...
