Dropping the needle on this insanely limited LP it would seem that somebody has got to my a-capella drone record idea before I got the chance to record anything, but this does develop into what its own title so aptly describes as an 'Oral Symphony'. This is a track based around vocalising. I'm not sure you can exactly call it singing, but more creating vocal tones and textures through the layering of human voices spouting precisely structured melodic gibberish with only a half-hearted regard for either pitch or tone. At first it sounds completely insane, but now that I've relaxed into it a little the bubbling, chattering effect of all the voices babbling away is actually really absorbing and inventive. On the next song he's joined by some kind of Casio preset beat over which layers of increasingly annoying vocals yowl bassily. 'Moronic Argument' features Broadcast's Roj Stevens and some of the most gratingly high pitched accompaniment you'll ever hear. You could empty many a room with this, but we at Norman Records are made of sterner stuff. Respite comes in the shape of the occasional instrumental bit of quiet plinky-plonkiness like 'Little Sun' but always the vocals return with their awkwardly drifting pitches. This is experimental pop that challenges you to hate it. I can't stand it when people do that so I'm going to defiantly say it's perfectly alright. Yeah, great record guys. Well done.
