about

Unstoppable collection from long in the tooth UK viber Matthew Bower and friends (who here include Neil Campbell, Rosalie Bower, Richard Youngs, and Jazzfinger). The atmosphere here is mostly spaced and buzzing with instruments and voices hovering and floating in the dense mix, the tunes all running together like some sort of alien shortwave broadcast. Disc 1 takes off from where "Found Star Sound" left us, with a mix of fuzzy guitar and organ rhythms jousting with voice, bowed strings, and unidentifiable percussion in a dense fog. Disc 2 is a headlong rush into newish territory, with analog synth vs. birdsong, child's voice vs. sawing violin, chug vs. fizz, etc. There are many tracks on both discs that have subtle (and overt) melodic and rhythmic undercurrents that suggest some sort of alternate fuzz/hiss-dominated universe version of say, Harmonia or Richter Band. Probably a coincidence, but very, very appealing.
