I’m a little bit tired now of that hyper-technicolour post-FlyLo/Tri Angle/Clams Casino sound where R’n’B, stunted hip-hop, watery sounding edits and mogadon-pop slyly mingle and seduce each other but I’ll persevere with it regardless as I can’t leave these things just sitting there un-listened-to can I?
The girl on the front looks well pissed off, like if her pet kitten has just messily shat in her shoe two minutes before she is due to leave to attend a glitzy LA party. Also her wig has slipped 20 degrees west. Terrible necklace too, what the fuck is she playing at? No wonder the moggie is dirty-protesting.
Apparently this lad is the first British producer to be featured on Brainfeeder and please don’t think this review is any form of backlash against the excellent production or the depth of the music as it all sounds beautifully mastered, deep ‘n’ hazy with curious beats, nice fidgety textures and plenty of weird electronic shimmering. It’s just like when seven/eight years ago I was well fed up with melodic twinkly IDM that all started to sound samey.
This is no ‘See Birds’ this EP although the overall finish is possibly even cleverer and richer in sonic detail. I just don’t think there are any particularly good songs on this record (the track bearing Kerry Leatham’s vocals being my only partial highlight) so I may as well just be stood in an expensive fashionable bar some place yawning whilst tweaking my cute little man tits and scratching me arse wondering why society has failed me again.
