The first Sone Institute work in six years finds itself Where Moth and Rust Consume. What possessed Roman Bezdyk to make an album about our Phil’s wardrobe we may never know. Returning nonetheless to ol’ pals Front & Follow for their new release series, the Institute presents an album of leftfield trip-pop and charming/unsettling mid-fi atmospheres.

8/10 Jamie Staff review, 30 October 2018

Sone Institute’s Roman Bezdyk and the Front & Follow label continue their association since 2007 with this fresh volume of music in the latter’s ‘new release’ series. As Roman himself says, he continues to create electronic pop music, albeit “from the only possible perspective” he has. Makes sense.

Two tracks in, and ‘Where Moth And Rust Consume’ is unfolding very quickly as something of an ‘unsettling pop’ classic. ‘Summer Lightning’ jaunts along all melodically bleeping like a cross between classic Aphex and ‘90s Momus. Elsewhere, careworn melodies meet melting trip-pop atmospheres, often meeting darkly comic subject matter. There are woozy chamber-acoustics on ‘Justice -- As Is’, disturbing lyrics on ‘I Only Exist’, and the most amusing song-title in yonks, in ‘The Devil Works In Asda’.

Some of these mid-fi atmospheres are delightfully terrifying, as on the pop-industrial playfulness of ‘A Gilded Cage’. On ‘The Glass Arena’ synths chatter away with each other before plotting an obliquely coded armageddon -- over an alternately plodding and skittering electro beat which is apparently turning my mind to mush. It’s all a bit confusing, but that’s OK as I like it.
