- A Lion Baptism by Innercity
8/10 Mike Staff review, 15 February 2013
It’s taken me a few minutes to decipher the cryptic hand-printed artwork and figure out that this is actually the newest album from the prolific Innercity, this time appearing on Further. From the off things are super-cosmic with some bubbling synth arpeggios, shimmering drones, and crackling disembodied voice fragments easing us nicely into things on ‘the essence of the earth as arch as arc’ before ‘bodycells fortress’ plunges us suddenly into a freezing cold bath of chilly future-dub ambient twitches and mechanoid rumbles, like Sun Araw meets Basic Channel, rad.
Beyond this there’s some FourTet-esque dancey stuff, some harsh rumbly avant-techno drone noise scree, tumbling technicolour cosmic chaos, and lengthy piece of future-drone full of bleeps and squelches and electric chirps and pulses, ‘Birthnight’, which it’s fair to say is the centrepiece of the album since it takes up the bulk of the second side. It starts out all astral and dreamy and becomes more chaotic towards the end, recalling Leeds’s own Ashtray Navigations in its acid-drenched ecstatic jumble, before the glassy backwards-tumbling twinkling chaos of ‘prince of the immortal woods’ closes out the LP. It’s varied, often chaotic, consistently mind-warping stuff made with a lot of imagination and flair. Highly recommended to fans of psychedelic experimental electronics!
