    Wagon Christ: Luke Vibert.
    Luke Vibert, AKA Wagon Christ, doesn't strive to be a prophet of the electronic age ala DJ Spooky, nor does he aim for the pop crossover appeal of the Chemical Brothers. Rather, he quietly but determinedly pursues his own reconstructionist vision using the tools of modern DJ culture as his building blocks and fashioning a personal--but very accessible--sonic world. Vibert builds that world by drawing on ambient music, Phillip Glass-style minimalism, the occasional trip-hop beat, world music, and an airy, ethereal quality that's uniquely his. While much of TALLY HO! is eminently danceable, it's much more than just a party record. Vibert fashions shimmering electronic soundscapes remarkable for their vibrancy and warmth, and under the right circumstances, listeners may be uplifted by TALLY HO!'s consistently positive vibe.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (12/10/99, p.129) - 3 1/2 Stars (out of 5) - "...Silly, yes, but also good, discombobulating fun - like a Firesign Theater album without any actual verbal content..."
    Spin (12/98, pp.185-186) - 8 (out of 10) - "...TALLY HO! constitutes one of 1998's nmost potent arguments contra the tired notion that electronic music is intrinsically cold and emotionless. At his sentimental and melodic best, Luke Vibert is simply one of the top songwriters around, it's just that he's serenading us with beats and samples rather than vocal chords and chord strum."
