Ailsa Craig is a new project from Matt Robson who you made have heard before either bobbing over a laptop in his main guise as Random Number or perhaps playing drums with the likes of Sierpinski or perhaps Hood. Robson also does a tidy line in producing records helping various outfits in the Leeds area (recent efforts include the The Manhattan Love Suicides and Downdime) to realize their ambitions on record. This new projects has Robson acting as chief songwriter and arranger with an augmented line-up featuring pals from the Leeds area including Manhattan Love Suicide's Caroline McChrystal and Sierpinski's Lee Hooper to name but a few. The music on debut release 'A Silent No' (you like what he's done there...) sits somewhere between his own work as Random Number and Hood. The recording breaches the divide between bedroom and big budget production and is perfectly ambitious. It would appear that a lot of time and effort has gone into this little beauty. 'Nine Times Table' plays with themes investigated by New Order yet restyled in the vein of Epic 45 and comes off sounding like a potential hit. This is followed by the equally as compelling 'Plans You Made' who's beautiful vocal is supplemented with some cool Random Number style cut up beats, well advanced. Elsewhere you can enjoy instrumental post-folk atmospherics playfully manipulated and twisted into new and exciting forms. This is a totally interesting release that is more than deserved of further investigation. It's gonna take a couple more listens for it all to sink in but it's obvious 'A Silent No' is littered with pop magic and mutant folktronic gems. Please take the time to check it out. For fans of Epic 45, New Order, Mice Parade, Field Mice, Mum as well as all the other stuff Mr. Robson has dabbled with in the past. Out now on Squirrel Records.
