Beginning with a curious slice of sultry, smoky jazz-noir spliced with odd wooden clunking & tendrils of seductive, hazy female vocal, this is a promising offering from the oddly named Pleq. His forte seems to lie in atmospheric minimal electronica works. 'Hackneyed Words' has a delicious, slippy 'Oversteps' Autechre feel, after they'd given up climbing abstract mountain in search of that elusive digital rhomboid snow leopard. Many other tracks hover around glitchy stumbling ambience avenue looking for a bus stop to scribble on in felt-tip then fall asleep contentedly in - beautifully layered stuff but more for total home immersion than club stomping. A largely ponderous downtempo journey, with the very stripped-back jazzy elements constantly re-surfacing to add subtle depth to the woozy abstractions & ghostly pulses throughout. I find the Magnitophono track especially evocative, with a melancholic keyboard refrain reminiscent of AFX, light cymbals & a minor dusting of electronic scrunch. Then there's these disembodied female vocals that occasionally interject on the periphery & I melt..... I rate this album rather highly & can only surmise it will become downright un-put-down-able after a couple of late night listens. And late night it is. Fans of anyone from Biosphere to Burial should find something satisfying here....
