Unruly Milk is the unstable duo of Hey Colossus’ guitar player Joe Thompson and ex-Hacker Farm electronicist Kek (plus some vocals from Elisa Thompson). The results are a woozy West Country haze of melodic strum, fizzy circuits and unusual production: it's a strong brew quite unlike any other! Edition of 100 CDrs on Blackcat Records.

A noisy song excursion farmed from the collective heads of Joe Thompson (of psych stoners Hey Colossus) and the should-be-famous Kek, who used to be part of electronic soldering fixer-uppers breaker-downers Hacker Farm. Together they make a light shambles, keeping their looping weirdness and bitty electronic microcosms largely sweet and enjoyable. Spilaggges by Unruly Milk, but they only spill what they themselves are willing to clean up.
This is the kind of collaboration that shows its workers -- you can hear some riffs a la Hey Colossus and some glitching tweaks a la Kek, whether they’re melted together or played apart. In order to pretend like there might be some songs, they invite along Elisa Thompson, whose vocal interpretations of their nonsensical soundscapes gives the whole thing an almost pastorally psych rock feel. Funny how this whole project comes from such disparate places and should be totally unlistenable -- yet is quite bright and beautiful.
A grab bag of melody and mayhem, folksy acoustic picking and fickle found sounds, this one will be celebrated by noisemakers all over the country and can be enjoyed by anyone who enjoys hearing masses of sound shift in and out of clarity. It comes in a brown paper bag, as crumpled as something that’s been lying around in your pocket for months.
