8/10 according to on Thu 10 Dec, 2009

A new 12" from Mordant Music is always an exciting prospect and this four way split ably demonstrates why, offering a cross-section of what the label's all about at this moment in time. First up is Sii, a new one on me, who rumbles along nicely on a mid-paced track with a distorted vocal refrain which, perhaps unexpectedly, reminds me of some of Jagz Kooner's finer remixes from around the turn of the century.. Maybe something like 'Dirty Headlines', the one he did for Royal Trux. Next it's Mr.Maxted, following up on that amazing LP from last year with a collaboration with Baron Mordant himself, a gloopy slice of analog synth sci-fi ambience which builds up into flashing rhythms but only breaks into actual beats for the briefest moment. Wonderful! Baron Mordant himself offers 'Dire Straits' which is never gonna be a 'Walk of Life' (nothing ever is) but satisfies sublimely with its skippy, glitchy rhythms, chiming high register lines and ominous, obscured and nonsensical voices. Finally Vindicatrix offers an oddball baroque ballad that's like Scott Walker collaborating with Mantronix or something. Excellent all round.
