Reissue of this great double set of 2011-era Andy Stott, on none other than the Modern Love label. These six tracks have that amazing shuffling slow heavy sound that Stott excels at, like techno on a tape machine with running-down batteries. Excellent aesthetic with compulsive grooves to match. Two LPs.

The second (ok, first chronologically) in the double repress of Andy Stott’s 2011 EPs is just as greyscale and morose as the other. When artists put out 2 separate records in quick succession, chances are they’re both alternate takes on their style, neatly partitioned for each distinct segment of the fanbase. But no, Stott just wants you to feel cold and alone. Twice.
Our Brian informed me, a bit of a newbie on pre-Luxury Problems Stott, that he used to make cocktail lounge house beats, but that’s his view on anything that isn’t sonically vomiting all over itself. This is not lounge but is droney as shit with the same muted churning as Passed Me By. ‘Bad Wires’ is the long slow grind, the equivalent of ‘Dark Details’ on Passed but with a straight beat. The layers constantly feel like they’re coming apart at the seams, much like the red brick terraces of Leeds itself. I know, he’s from Manchester, I completely forgot that the whole of the North is effectively at war. So yeah, this is slowly disintegrating red brick techno that’s been left in a northern dustbin for a few years and has forgot what the outside looks like. Trees? Grass? One day it’ll all be swallowed into the fires of Sol and all that remains will be this record.
