- Nomenclature by The Boats
8/10 Ant Staff review, 13 September 2013
The cynic in me had my reservations when reading The Boats had made a techno record, with so many artists jumping on the techno bandwagon there are some weak interpretations of my favourite genre floating about but then I guess there always has been. The plus side is more artists are exploring the possibilities of what has to me always been the music of the future.
Hats off to The Boats as they've totally nailed it with 'Nomenclature’ coating the sounds in a lovely warm blanket of fuzz and decay, the compositions sound like they've always existed on a dust covered 12" buried in a time capsule. It's a great signature production sound, almost as if William Basinski's tape loops were over-driven distorted Roland jams. I was really surprised at how tough many of these tracks are, a distinct stylistic departure for The Boats but if you're familiar with their work, somehow you can tell it's them. 'Halting Problem' is an absolute ripper that sounds like it was custom built to overload my techno receptors with it's dark industrial futuristic clanking rhythms. 'Elliptic Curve' is something you'd be forgiven for thinking was a AnD or Violet Poison 12". I'd never have guessed in a million years who was behind these tracks had I heard them melting my face off in a club.
Let's hope there's more to come on their new label Other ideas. Recommended and on red wax to boot.
