9/10 according to on Thu 28 Jan, 2010

In between hanging around with Aussie sound art artist chap called Charles Sage, Tim Martin (Maps & Diagrams) has been hob knobbing and hanging around with Dennis Nilsen and Jeremy Bamber, Crazy times! Tim & Charles (no Jeremy an Dennis though...) have created some music under the guise of Hessien. They've collaborated to make a rather lovely 5 track EP called Skurjn. Like the other releases on the Handstitched label it's lovingly packaged in some hand stitched cork and uber limited (there's 100 of this one). Well nice!! This is dreamy stuff.... beautiful post rock style guitars over fuzzy soundscapes. Plenty of micro noises and electronics going layering over the field recordings to make a complex yet accessible lump of ear noise. It's very busy yet un cluttered. Listen to it with headphones though and you'll be amazed at the level of detail and the richness of the music comes alive. Fans of Moteer, Mobeer, Manual will lap this up!! This will make a superb addition to your 3" family but be quick as the last 2 releases on the label sold out in hours! And maybe if you don't Dennis and Jeremy will get ya......

So, what do you think?
