10/10 glowing portastudio 1st April 2011
For those who've enjoyed Robert Horton's adventures in abstract sound, this release may come as a surprise: it did to me! The 20 tracks compiled here date from 1996-2005 and find Horton collaborating on mainly song-based material with Les Shimmin. What's really endearing about this is a spirit of adventure - the feeling of people making songs who haven't bothered with some rule book telling them how they should do it. Aside from a drum machine here and there, the tracks are based on layered textures, loops and collages of voices with some field recordings. Daniel Plonsey turns up with treated clarinet and sax on a few tracks, as does Horton's partner Janet Carter, whose voice appears on one song. The sound is very clearly ye olde 4 track portastudio, which has a certain glow to it as well.
