9/10 Brett 18 March 2009
SND have got a new CD out on Raster Noton that follows up that ultra limited triple vinyl from last year with some serious rhythmical experimentation in a similar vein. Using almost nothing but building blocks of pretty standard old-school Roland sounds they construct little minimalist exercises in repetition that demand your utmost attention - we had it on yesterday and trying to work with it on in the background proved almost impossible, trying to concentrate on something else just wasn't going to happen. It reminded me a little of Autechre's Confield in that way, listen to it in the wrong mood or circumstance and it's going to do your head in, but at other times it'll be an immensely rewarding experience. Synths do occasionally pop up in a very subtle way but really this is all about the beats, fashioned in ridiculously varied ways considering the limited palette they're drawn from.. I guess that's what the title (Atavism) is babbling on about, taking the sounds that started it all and taking them down a different evolutionary path? Unlike many things of this nature though, it completely works on both a conceptual and musical level. A really classy CD with the usual classy Raster Noton packaging to boot.
