Negativland: True False
What in Negativland used to sound like farce now sounds like tragedy. On True False (Seeland), the Bay Area multimedia collective are a long way from the then-controversial copyright trolling of their brilliant 1992 U2 parody, “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.” Lean into the dizzyingly insightful True False abyss as the sample-rockers employ your favorite social-media technologies to illuminate our latest ideological and environmental catastrophes. “Certain men always get their way,” intones one track repetitively and resignedly. “I’m here to drive you crazy,” spews a woman loopily in another. Mission accomplished.
