Hit + Run's Crash + Burn — and ain't that some kinda dynamic series of verbs? — is a yearly tradition dedicated to upending tradition, where future funkers and outsider beat creatures meet for a show under the banner of the city's premier guerrilla silkscreening machine. At the top of this year's bill are Zackey Force Funk and Matthewdavid, both coming off recent albums, but let's zoom in on MD for a moment. His new In My World (Brainfeeder) is a love song to love songs, metabolizing sweet soul, Low End beats and waves of blissed-out New Age noise into some kind of sci-fi mash note to forever. In moments, it's startling, adorable and ferocious; as a whole, it's pure, personal and honest. Too bad it's not already Valentine's Day, but In My World definitely has power enough to win you over anew in February.
