"Hanetration describes his music as “ambient soundscapes, field recordings, woozy atmospherics and glitchy sound collages, music for headphones” and I would pretty much go along with that, but I would also add that the ep is compellingly different, sonically inventive throughout and one of the most promising debuts out there in the ambient/experimental field at the moment.
Rex immediately grabs your attention with its frenzied babbling vocal layered with fluttering flute tones and a quirky beat underlying a mumbling voice buried in hazy delirium. Piano notes meander above a low static layer here and there before the rhythm picks up again to fade out on that fevered vocal line, a superb track! Alarm builds slowly with piano over dense layers of velvet drone into a mournful death march parade. with a melancholic air, Rufus includes some wonderfully bowed psaltery-like sounds which stretch out over a steampunk mechanical rhythm full of hiss and steam. Final track Wreck has a delightfully twisted vocal like a lost soul wailing in a fog shrouded limbo with a slow pulse beneath supported by an insistent pickup glitch." savaran music
hablando de harmoniums, para muestra un botón: hanetration, pero sobre todo una canción y al principio, 'rex', que me ha hecho querer escuchar de nuevo a town and country y bird show. otra de esas agradables sorpresas que de vez en cuando aparecen en nuestro correo
