Electronica duo (they’re always duos aren’t they?!) Paul Conboy and Jono Podmore release this new full length album under their Metamono moniker.
Having just flicked through the ridiculously lengthy press release I’ll do you all a favour and keep this short and sweet. Based in Crystal Palace, Conboy and Podmore have previously worked with the legendary Irmin Schmidt of Can under the name Kumo, and they apparently build a lot of their own instruments by soldering together bits of obsolete synths and electronic equipment.
This makes for an interesting sound of vintage bloops and bleeps that hark back to an almost acid house vibe. Dubby beats and boings that remind me a lot of 808 State and even a bit of early Orb. As a live act it’s said that they can appear like some kind of electronic car boot sale, with radio receivers, phasers and modulators all streaming with wires and bits of wood with knobs embedded into them. I can see that. Each track flows from one to another with a similar theme running throughout, interrupted occasionally with the odd voice sample.
It’s an impressively warm and inviting album with all sorts of influences in there, from Eno to Aphex via Can and Herbie Hancock. Certainly a sound worth dipping your ears into!
