Will Guthrie’s new album changes up his working methods a little, focusing on shorter-length tracks made using hip-hop derived sampling techniques as well as his usual amazing percussion skills. People Pleaser contains a frantic noisy whirl of sounds, though Guthrie’s skills keep things surprisingly funky underneath all that clatter. Released by Oren Ambarchi’s Black Truffle.
Adventurous percussionist Will Guthrie is so great at what he does that he can fill two sides of an LP with only percussive instruments, and make it fascinating as he does so. Electrifying soundscapes from gongs and drums ritualistically assembled, with a lot of space on the first side and a more driving rhythms on side two. On iDEAL Recordings.
