- Simple Pleasures by Lipsis
Lipsis is the pseudonym of Matt Allcock a South East London based electronic artist working strictly in the digital domain. 'Simple Pleasures' is Allcock's third full length following two releases on Enpeg (n5MD) entitled 'Myths' (November 2006) and 'Community' (February 2008). I'm not all that familiar with Lipsis' work but from what I can gather from 'Simple Pleasures' Allcock concentrates on the abstract realm of electronica spitting forth random tones, digital squiggles and loosely cohesive rhythm tracks in a very studious manner. The construction of this music is incredibly well thought out. At first the music seems totally random but form and meaning occasionally rears it's head, assisting the listeners ears to adjust to the abstract nature of the music. Allcock's choice of sounds is probably the most interesting aspect of 'Simple Pleasures' with warm synth tones, fuzzy melodies, ambient drones and prickly beats dominating throughout but on repeat listen it's the warmth and space created in these compositions that leave a lasting impression. Bizarre yet beautiful sounding electronic music.
