Paperkraft And Stones Taro Release “Rally Hard” EP

Voices come to the forefront on this split EP between NC4K mainstays Paperkraft and Stones Taro. Samples of singing and of humans just generally generating noise have popped up in their releases, but the Rally Hard EP pushes them to the front in a way that none of the other releases from the label has done, at least off the top of my head. Stones Taro’s “Breed The Horns” finds familiar acid stabs joining with a barrage of syllables — “yo!” “uh!” — to create a simple but catchy track. Better is Paperkraft’s “Final Dance,” which takes speedy sentences and, eventually, joyful bursts of singing, to create a thumping number that uses voices as a main melody.
