8/10 Brian Staff review, 17 July 2008
Old 4AD/Static Caravan chapster Magnetophone has popped his head up as a guest on new limited CD label First Fold. Trying to recall what his earlier stuff sounded like but 'Wires & Tapes' begins with an absorbing space ballad that sounds like Animal Collective having to say farewell to each other forever, all these twinkles & gorgeous effects surrounding you whilst punctured vocals intoned in a monotone fashion. It finishes in quite an an unsettling way, like a frightened music box being abducted by aliens. His production is quite remarkable, On track 2 you get very beautiful cyber ambience with disembodied vocals that sound like Panda Bear battling with a Massive Attack bassline, Track 3 is abstract piano & electronic morphing/glitch with a side dish of clouded vox and the closer is yet more cosmic Animal Collective inspired drift with some smashing hypnotic prog keys & spacious enveloping glory! Great stuff! This mini album is an EDN of 100 so be bloody quick-smart like!
