8/10 Mike Staff review, 06 December 2012

Here’s a new EP from reliable dread-merchants Old Apparatus, the third in a trilogy of solo EPs by its various members, this time a fella who calls himself Harem. It’s packaged so mysteriously that it’s taken the combined efforts of everybody in the office a good five or ten minutes to figure out what speed it’s supposed to play at. We eventually came to the conclusion that it plays at 33. You’re welcome.

There’s four tracks on offer here which conjure up a spooked, paranoid atmosphere with Carpenter-esque synth drones, blurred, echoing vocals and intermittent broken-computer beats. The first side seems to concentrate mostly on this droney drifty side and then for the first track on the flip, ‘Dourado’, things get much more percussive with intricate tribalistic beats being introduced over more detailed, layered drone-melodies. It’s a proper stomping rhythm actually, even with all the darkness that’s piled underneath it. It’s followed by the driftiest number of the lot, though, ‘Octofish’, which is a calming wash of melodic, slightly celestial drone-ambience with heavily effected vocals adding a little texture. A lovely relaxing end to a spooky and interesting record.
