9/10 Brian 07 August 2008
Pete Um is a right mentalist. He does that whole bubbling, woozy electronic soundscape/ seriously bent electronic thing with warped absurdist poetry spread over the top like thick weird aural word gravy. This is dance music for people who have pink rubber furniture & sport 70s porn 'taches without an hint of irony. 'No Pressure' it's called is this album and i'm suitably impressed. Junk shop electronica from a one man mind mental, there's some seriously barmy, disjointed vibes bouncing around in these bendy but catchy grooves. John Callahan, early Baby Bird, Wevie Stonder, Felix Kubin & Manchester's wonderful Superqueens are handy reference points. For such an eccentric slab of vinyl, there's much satisfaction to be had from repeated listens. With the current electronica world caught in some kind of strange purist rut, either minimal techno or (yawn) dubstep being the choice of many a backpacking uber spod, I think the time is nigh for the new wave of whirring odd-hop and downtempo gibbercore. Lovely warm production with a very human & quirky feel, you get a mix of playful electro, ambient snippets, stagger-beats, voice manipulation, wayward mogadon-techno and a vast array of beguiling electronic noises. This remarkable album could even work as the modern equivalent of a radiophonic workshop experiment, there's some smart little tunes on here, my faveourite being 'Holy Fire' (Candie Hank remix). If you yearn for something a little different and individual then this vinyl shoulkd be in your bag. A highly inventive chap indeed! Ltd to 350 for the world, in a well colourful sleeve, inc lyric insert on the pioneering label, Gagarin
