- Pharmacy by Tuff Sherm
9/10 Ant Staff review, 24 October 2012
Right here we have a most welcome vinyl outing from Tuff Sherm, an alter ego of Australian wonder-kid Dro Carey. This follows a couple of cassette releases under the alias which has the artist working in techno mode. Opener ‘Pharmacy’ as the title suggests induces an altered state with syrupy tribal percussion and the sound of a stoned wasp in a jar. It chugs along at mid tempo but somehow manages to feel really slow and druggy, just as you become lethargic the beats kick in at the right moment. It’s a fairly simple but effective tune.
Next up is the short but ever so sweet ‘Hydlide’ with filtered percussion that sounds like a train disappearing into a tunnel and then re-emerging. This has a bit of a downer vibe to it, kinda melancholy with some strange squashed percussion and a bit of an eerie mood.
Finally the best is saved for last with ‘Leg Man’ which has a dead hypnotic sorta backwards loop and another loop that sounds like an angelic moggy taking its last ever purr before it ascends to pussy heaven. On the surface it sounds quite simple but it’s actually quite intricate and a really deep tune. All three tracks are sweet. Honestly can’t think of anyone else this sounds like. The lad’s definitely got his own vibe going here. Dig it.
Get alerted to new stock from this artist / label.
