8/10 Robin Staff review, 25 October 2017

The best and incidentally first song from Anna Meredith’s miasma catastrophe ‘Varmints’, this 12” celebrates “Nautilus” the way it deserves, giving it its whole own plate of wax to spin around on. The track’s triumphant horn fanfare is matched with synths that resemble two b-list horror movies sizing each other up before a boxing match, acting as an emotional counterpoint to any suggestion of joy and ascendency Meredith posits elsewhere. It’s psychedelic fervor in place, Meredith’s syncopated beats shatter any cosmic illusions, making the whole thing sound gut-twistingly real. Sgt. Pepper’s getting broken.

The 12” conjoins “Nautilus” with “Miranda”, initially part of Lefse Record’s Space Project, placing dashed rhythms against woozy melodies that sound like cartoon aliens having a reasonable converastion. The beats doze around the shifting space opera, creating the same feeling of tension and lethargy that marks much of Meredith’s stunning work. A brief reminder that she’s quite unreal.
