The one born Ben Billington comes through with five new Quicksails numbers. A mainstay of the Chicago electronics scene, Billington’s highly skew-whiff styles approximates Muslimgauze, Radiante Pourpre and the more erstwhile corners of the Oval catalogue without any of those comparisons settling particularly comfortably. Comes backed with remixes by Shit & Shine, Khaki Blazer and Brett Naucke, all of which are also super strange.
Chicago’s music underground is such a busy and bustling place that one can happily take part in multiple different scenes at once: such is the way with Ben Billington of Quicksails, who can also be seen in a number of other acts. Here on Mortal, he carves out busy compositions from a stack of electronic and acoustic sources. This LP could fit in a few of those Chicago scenes at once. LP on Hausu Mountain.
