Motion Graphics is the new solo project from Joe Williams, who previously recorded as White Williams. Joe's 'Motion Graphics' set was put together over a 2-year period and contains widescreen electronic pop melded with ambient sounds filtered through dusty, dusky city-scapes. CD comes with a 10 inch poster; the LP with download code, printed inner sleeve and hologram sticker, on Domino.
7/10 Clinton Staff review, 24 August 2016Motion Graphics is the new name for the guy who used to record under the alias White Williams not that I remember a thing about that particular project. Probably a good thing as I won’t be tempted to suggest he's lost his way. He makes clever electronic pop that lollops in the same way as this years Bracken album but with a sunnier disposition celebrating sunshine rather than rainfall. He used all manner of production ticks to make his points then sings all over them. I suggest he’s trying to soundtrack summer by means of ticking electronics and off kilter rhythms that sometimes sounds like Junior Boys with access to Tuneyards sound bank ( esp. on ‘Minecraft Mosaic’) and eschews actual pop songs for weirder off kilter laments which i sometimes which exploded out of their shell a bit more. The delicious voice samples of ‘Vistabrick’ take an age to build but it’s fascinating learning how he held back from adding in a pumping bass line and going for the jugular. It’s music that is so clever that it almost causes it’s downfall by not letting you in emotionally. But I enjoyed listening to all the sounds bouncing around.
