Two spastic odyssey’s from Andrew Broder. Visinvisible both clock in at 20 minutes, and boy does he use all that time to the maximum. He appears to have a rather short attention span on these two, yet he develops themes through both tracks. Somewhere between FlyLo, Aphex, R&B and other noises. Out on cassette tape from BARO.

Here’s another pretty exciting tape release on the label that brought you the Bracken album. It's by Andrew Broder who is most ‘famous’ for fronting Anticon-related lo-fi hoppers Fog. Unlike the Bracken record which shows a linkage from Chris Adams' work with Hood, this couldn’t be further from the lo-fi pop of Broder's former band.
It comprises of two lengthy sound collages with strangely chopped voice and vocal samples leading to a really disconcerting piece of music. It's hard work, but as the opening piece (can’t find titles) gets going there are some interesting rhythms, created by marrying the chopped vocals with some subtle beats before the whole thing collapses into ambience. The track on the B side uses similar cut and splice techniqiues reminding me of the jarring outsider music of People Like Us and Throbbing Gristle. Not personally what I want from Broder, who has previously shown some form in making interesting lop-sided pop, but interesting stuff nonetheless.
