8/10 Brett 22 October 2009
Demdike Stare is the new project from Miles Whitaker of Pendle Coven and Sean Canty of the Finders Keepers label, keeping the witchy theme of the former going with track titles like 'Haxan Dub' and 'All Hallow's Eve' (which features Danny Norbury guesting) and by naming themselves after one of the more famous sisters of Pendle. Soundwise things have taken a turn for the darker as far as comparisons with Miles' previous material is concerned, with a palette of forlorn decay, exotic mystery and industrial static wedded to his usual immaculately dubby production. Overt beats have, for the most part, been dropped in favour of pulsing rhythms (and when they do crop up they have a peculiarly Turkish feel which conjures up images of Tarkan painting pentagrams on his floor) and the whole thing is completely in service to the atmosphere, thick enough to cut with a knife. Symbiosis represents a really tidy bit of work.
