Definitely dozed on this stimulating offering from DJ/musician/producer Nick Hook accompanied by his rappin' amigos El-P & Rood off the Without You EP that dropped last week. "Sirens" comes off like a march towards impending doom laced with moments of brief but elusive hope, the chorus a barrage of paranoid android ramblings. Rood brings a tight, tongue-twisting flow while El's verse captures the traumatic after thoughts of having sex at 15, engulfed by fearful visions of catching AIDS after an unfortunate condom mishap. Some chilling moments to be sure, even with the corporate-sponsored radio edits.
