Pye Corner Audio Vinyl, CD & tapes by Pye Corner Audio at Norman Records
Pye Corner Audio is music for a ghost rave. Hauntology as house party, he comes from a league of gloomy techno dads who make beatwork in service of dusty libraries and Eldritch horror stories. He's absolutely adored by Norman Records bossman Phil, who thinks his music stands head and shoulders above the already stellar efforts of labels Ghost Box and Death Waltz.
Also known by his human alias Martin Jenkins, Pye Corner Audio has enjoyed comparisons far and wide to artists including Andy Stott (a techno brutalist if ever there was one) and Boards of Canada (the old twinkle-toes sci-fi producers). It's proof of his ability to reroute retro sounds as futurism, to make rich something once shrouded in attic dirt. His record Sleep Games may have stood out as a high point -- offering an adventurous deluge of Eurodisco, rave and John Carpenter -- but he's since made stellar and more focused records like Stasis.
In fact, it feels like Pye Corner Audio is always releasing music, enlisted by yet another label to shroud us in synth shadows. Fans of Not Waving, Silent Servant and a general feeling of impending doom ought to listen to Pye Corner Audio; he's at the heart of the haunt.
