He Can Jog is the alias of a 'computer musician' Erik Schoster of Milwaukee. Opening with a dirty drone that had me fearing of having to write about another one-note nap-athon, the main track here 'Gather/Burn/Echo' (a kind of 21 minute trilogy) opens up beautifully, first with some understated bass picking out a melody before some gorgeous female vocals take the track into a totally different direction altogether. Yet just when you think you've got it figured a male voice enters the fray, then drums and the whole thing turns out to be rather epic and rather good I'd say. An extremely tuneful slice of pastoral electronic laptop pop to blow away any lingering november cobwebs. The track then dies to almost nothing, building again slowly from a shimmering drone into a maelstrom of electronic ticks with simple vocals plonked atop. Elsewhere 'Pippi' employs static and doomy electronic piano chords whilst 'Company' is a stark lonesome drone but it's that opening salvo that really impresses.
