- Credo by Marihiko Hara
This begins with some cool stuttering Lionel Glitches interspersed with tape hiss and pulsing, ghostly waves of ominous drift with these very occasional suspended notes like little baby depth charges in a distant ocean. I want more depth charges NOW! At one point I'm waiting for a dub techno track to start but it never materialises. By 'Credo I', mood-wise, I'm thinking more along the lines of Alva Noto. Here there's a distinct downtempo beat skittering along with all kinds of brilliant sonic rumbling and fluttering ephemera draped all over the ambling beats. It's a really nice tune which then segues into a more hesitant, stunted glitch-a-thon which is revealed as its brother - 'Credo II'. I'm digging this future-ambient stuff. Nice soothing clouds of sleepy melodic drone over insistent, itchy digital beatery and odd stumbling mechanised rhythms. I'd happily say this is one of the most interesting, busy sounding releases I've heard on Home Normal. There's tons going on and it would not sound out of place if it appeared on the Raster Noton stable being that there's a distinct experimental techno feel on some tracks! Fave track - the gorgeous, slow build/new dawn of 'Trio', modern ambient at its most divine, up there with the best from folk like Loscil.
