A smart little tape we have here, all snazzy and printed with a ‘risograph’. Sounds delicious. New to Kit Records is this group formed of two electronic soundbotherers by the names of Object Agency and Swim Platform who promise to deliver the chill jams using synths, guitars, brass and the clicking of assorted objects.
I’m not sure I’m permitted to use this term but I’m gonna say it’s vaguely chillwave-y, featuring percussive rhythm sections but slowed down to sub-house tempo, plodding along without a care in the world. It’s got a slightly vintage feel due to the rough, primitive edge of the synths, a little noisy hiss here and there and raw muddy sounds also help. It could just be the tape hiss talking though. Whichever the track is on the last 5-10 mins of side A is amazing - erasing the beats of the previous moments, it retains a sort of loose rhythm while a surreal synth loops round in the right ear, contested by live sax or trumpet in the left. The addition of live instruments always lifts these sorts of lengthy electronic escapades.
Over the the B it returns to beats with a thicker, chunkier tone about them. This one feels more like a track by The Field with Stockhausen dropping murky clunks in the distance. It then drops into a haunting dub straight after that Burial would be jealous of. An impressive start to the Poirier Marshall Partners saga.
