9/10 Ant Staff review, 04 October 2013
Tommy Four Seven and Alain drop their self-titled debut album as These Hidden Hands following an excellent taster 12” which featured remixes from Lakker and Vatican Shadow. I’ve spun this a few times now and am pretty into it. They create a sort of ugly post-IDM sound with a contemporary droning bleak techno sound palette, informed by the darker strains of growling bass music. Think somewhere between the aforementioned Vatican Shadow, Scorn, Autechre and the blackest of Braindance melodies, with a nostalgic wink to the glory days of IDM.
As dark as it is it’s not without it’s catchy moments, such as apocalyptic raver ‘Laika’. There’s even some grinding industrial brutality on ‘Severed’ recalling recent Ancient Methods mechanical rhythms. Plenty to get stuck into on this record, from dark ambient soundscapes to full on crunched up beats and soaring ethereal melodies. Summer is a distant memory, the skies are battleship grey and these dark and dreamy dystopian sound worlds are the perfect soundtrack to the impending winter. Edition of 380 copies on double 180grm vinyl. Recommended.
