GROWING Lateral 12" / CDEP
"A kaleidosope of prismatic tones and juddering electronics forming a series of mesmeric constellations."
With albums on Kranky and Troubleman Unlimited, this Brooklyn duo has jumped to The Social Registry for an EP of stuttering light and minimalist beauty. The thick drone that characterized their albums on Kranky has subsided and made way for the choppy but delicate electronic manipulations.
INSTRUMENTS OF SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY Music From The Films Of R/Swift CD
"For the critical listener, INST sounds like Brian Eno and Wendy Carlos had a love child in the 70's and subsequently marooned him/her/it on an Oort Cloud.
"With Instruments of Science and Technology, Swift has resurrected the earliest forms of electronic music, thrown in a few dashes of dub, hip-hop, kraut-rock, and Motown--and created a new hybrid dish."
A peculiar album completely removed from the last few decades. This could easily fit alongside Broadcast albums, BBC Radiophonic recordings, and library records if you wanted something a little darker in your diet.
