It's hard to think of a name that carries as much weight in both hip-hop and avant-rock circles as Prefuse 73, who in the past year alone has been asked to remix 'TV On The Radio', Pelican and Cornelius, not to mention his early collabs with School of Seven Bells and Battles. These interactions have clearly helped to shape the evolving Prefuse 73 sonic aesthetic.

This year will see Guillermo Scott Herren comfortably stretching sonics across a new Prefuse 73 album 'Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian' plus a new project named 'Diamond Watch Wrists' in collaboration with superstar drummer Zach Hill (Hella, Marnie Stern, etc.).

For the 29-track Prefuse album, Herren rejected the idea of straight digital recording and instead went the much more intensive route of recording to analog Ampex tape, giving the album the sound of a lost tape of exploratory studio musicians from the not-too-distant past. In addition to the recording process, Ampexian also differs in its composition, existing as a tapestry of tracks of varying lengths and moods, albeit with a remarkable linear flow and, of course, unmatched rhythmic bump.

From the drum machine prog of 'Parachute Panador' to the driving noise jam 'Violent Bathroom Exchange', it's easy to deduce that Prefuse 73 is comfortably stretching out musically. 'Nature's Uplifting Revenge' sounds as if broadcast from a pirate radio station equally enamored with Animal Collective and J Dilla, while 'Simple Loop Choir' is anything but simple - an expansive robo-ballad, featuring a vocoded chorus of Herren's voice and clouds of analog debris.

The uncommon reach of the album also serves as an oddly appropriate introduction and companion to Guillermo Scott Herren's newest musical incarnation, Diamond Watch Wrists, and the album Ice Capped at Both Ends. Created with superstar drummer Zach Hill (Hella, Marnie Stern, etc.), DWW shows an entirely new form of Herren creations, organic songs featuring Guillermo's plaintive vocals, guitar and studio wizardry, Hill's singular drumming as well as previously unheard nods to 60's European acid-folk, classic American singer-songwriters and krautrock.
