The press release for 'The Pattern Prism' by U.K uber-producer Vowels makes some pretty bold claims about James Rutledge (AKA Pedro) and his creative prowess. NME have convinced themselves that he's creating 'The sound of the future' and The Times suggest that he is 'The UK answer to Jim O' Rourke! This is a pretty decent album but it's be no means the sound of the future, if anything it's a regurgitation of historically significant musical innovations of the past as interpreted by some hip english remixer/producer, saying that 'The Pattern prism' is certainly varied and interesting. 'Two Wires' is upbeat krautrock in the vein of Neu as processed by Four Tet. Free improv tracks like 'Swim pool' sound decent and the arpeggiated groove of 'On Up' pays homage to genius of mid eighties production techniques with muchos enthusiasm. 'The pattern Prism' also displays some fine musicianship, especially the drums and synth workouts 'Drums gone awry' and 'Eh Uh'. I'm finding it hard not enjoy this album and would have felt alot better about it had there not been for the ridiculously hyped up quotes and ambitious claims made on the front of the CD and in the press release. Kinda of unfocused and all over the shop, James Rutledge certainly shows promise but a little consistency wouldn't go a miss. Good album though, i'm just being fussy. Why they are dressed like the Klu Klux Klan on the back cover is beyond me and i won't even get into the daft sax solo on the final track!!!
