Russell Haswell is a fellow I find to be both consistently uncompromising and interesting in everything I’ve had the fortune to hear by the man. Stomping his way through life he seems to have a kind of ESP appreciation of the sonics of our planet like a Chris Watson wearing oil stained overalls. The sounds of ‘Jamaican Blowholes’ sounds like Lord Vader on his deathbed... If you want to hear the sounds of evil wasps mixed with the sound of an Apache helicopter then look no further. Both are flying machines, one organic and one man made, I can hear the connection. I ‘m enjoying the rhythms that the rotating blades and headphone pilot communication that ‘Helicopter Trip’ are providing me. Big boys toys! ‘Electroswat’ is like having a big buzzy bee trapped in your processor, and then we’re into more subdued sound for a while before reaching ‘High Force From Above’ which sounds like water crashing from a waterfall into a stream of liquid chaos. ‘Summer Hill Force Against Gibson’s Cave’ ups the noise factor somewhat again with cascading and crashing water noise. ‘Trappers Bait Digital Caller’ has some bird (I think) squeaking that reminds me of being a teenager and very into techno while my brother and I battled for custody of our midi hi-fi where I wanted to play Jeff Mills tapes and he wanted to play back his mock fox calls on loop which he mimed onto tape to play in a field while he shot some bunnies which didn’t go down that well with me being a veggie. 'Falling Snow' captures the gloopy melting crystals of snow changing from a solid into a liquid, secret rhythms of the natural world are revealed. There is little here that has the in your face aggro noise that I was expecting but I just get the vibe that he enjoys the sounds he hears around him and thinks they are wroth sharing with those that ore open to listening. It’s basically just fun and not anally academic and I bet he’s a good laugh to go out on the lash with. ‘Wild Tracks’ is housed in a KIDZBOX™ case which is one of those plastic cases with a handle that my son buzzes off carrying his Bob The Builder and Thomas The Tank Engine DVD’s around in. Out on Peter Rehberg’s Editions Mego label which is proving to be very reliable these days.
