- Procrastination by Fabio Orsi / Pimmon

'Procrastination' I believe marks Home Normal's first foray into the world of the vinyl format. This is one heavyweight bliss-out session from two expert craftsmen: Italian artist Fabio Orsi and Pimmon whom hails from upside-down land. What is on offer are four pieces created through the exchange of files. Each artist's signature style is clearly apparent; Orsi's melting drones and arcs of neo-classical sound filtered through Pimmon's laptop twiddling. 'I Wish You Were Yallingup' is so mellow and lush I thought I was going to slip into some sort of ambient induced coma, it just completely froze me to the point I couldn't move until it ended. It came in pretty useful too as it made my two year old son zone out into the land of nod.
'Garnacha' makes me imagine I'm on a raft stranded in the middle of a moonlit ocean, drifting away infinitely with no visible horizon until eventually some birds appear and gently guide me towards safety. This is brilliantly conceived and of course you're fully entitled to create your own mental journey.
'Procrastination' is all layered flowing liquid tones and processed strings that effectively induce a really warm and peaceful vibe seeming to fill the room with positive energy spilling from of the speakers. Having not heard Orsi's original material pre- Pimmon's treatment' it's difficult to say so I can only speculate but I think here Pimmon has done a fair amount of editing making the drones and swirls more dynamic rather than sustained. Either way it unfolds magnificently and seems to evolve gradually from being very organic sounding into very subtly synthetic.
'Just One More' begins very gently with sparse and fragile electronics then with no urgency things creep in until midpoint things have built up into rich almost tactile textures with gentle hum, whispering hiss and delicate microtonal shifts. It's a heady mix that builds right up to a peak of intensity and distortion and then quietly fizzles away.
As expected, a great meeting of minds teaming up for a delightful collaborative record. A perfect soundtrack to a lazy day.
