- An Ambassador For Laing by Dalhous
1 review. Write a review for us »
Dalhous is a duo of Marc Dall and Alex Ander straight out of Edinburgh, Scotland and this follows on from a recent 10” on the same label. They peddle a kind of percussion-heavy take on cinematic electronica. At times I’m reminded of the pastoral washes of fellow Scots Boards of Canada but Dalhous have a much bigger interest in the composition of their beats which have an intricate yet purposeful feel to them. They add textured electronics and oddball clattering sounds to the mix which gives a kind of post industrial feel to the tunes, like old iron forges clattering away yet the overall feel of the music is quite sunny and resolutely upbeat.
‘Bolder and Lighter Than The Beat From A Wing’ (yup they are another with the long post-rock title obsession) has a lovely bright piano loop which is added to with skewed electronics, producing a lovely track that is the aural equivalent of sun streaming through the window. I’m trying hard not to compare them to Lemon Jelly as that could signify a soulless music for graphic designers type affair but they do have the bouncy upbeat type sounds and loops in their repetoire. Later on they seem to reach a darker place ‘Dwelling By The Meadow’ has bleaker soundscapes with scattershot samples coming across somewhere between Seefeel and Demdike Stare.
