8/10 Brian Staff review, 08 October 2009
Khate is a lady from Virginia who likes to produce truly absorbing ambient music interspersed with mesmerizing sound design. Here she introduces her soundworld with a lovingly packaged LP on SMTG called 'Pareidolia'. From the off it's like listening to an old Biosphere album remixed by Machinefabriek, eerie pulses, ominous phasing and quiet aquatic burbles with those digital crumpling sounds going on we like so much, Later on there's a space hoover vacuuming up a lazerquest troop stuck in a metallic jungle, lovely tribal incantations are overlaid with these strange juddering blades of sound. 'Autumn' is a deliciously creepy dark ambient techno number with this ace little moody keyboard refrain - may be nods to SAW II by th' Twin - before it dissolves into more laptop scrunch & drifting, ghostly basslines, haunted klaxons and sleepy ambient melancholia. There's a really organic, rhythmic feel to this record with some simply wonderful sound applications. It all sounds like a real labour of love - 8 tracks produced in 4-5 years means an incredibly perfectionist mind is at work here, you can hear the feminine touch, some bits remind us of the hugely underrated Portable on Pole's ~scape records but with a darker outlook. Mastered by James Plotkin, i'm loving this LP, housed in a wicket screen printed sleeve.
