Punish, Honey

Tri Angle Records

Format_dot_cdCD // £9.99

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: TRIANGLE27CD

One of Bristol's most interesting artists returns with an ace, oddly organic 2nd album for Tri Angle. 'Punish Honey' cements Vessel's unique position in modern electronica, not least as the first artist bestowed the honour of a 2nd full length on Tri Angle, but also due to his kink for a queered, oxidised alloy of organic and electronic tone, texture and timbre. In it, he uses electro-acoustic/concrète techniques and process to embody a unique voice and character, rather than towards any academic purposes. Employing sheet metal as percussion and sawn-off bicycles as flutes, he arrives at a roiling… Read more

Again, we're returned to that noirish, narcotised ambient space which made 'Foley Folly Folio' a staunch fave around these parts (prompting a vinyl release on our Boomkat Editions label), and which deeply infected the proceeding collections, 'Elegant & Detached', and 'A Ravishment Of Mirror'.

Gudrun Gut meets Hans Joachim Irmler ov Faust for a driving, psychedelic exploration of their respective Krautrock perspectives in '500m'. Both survivors of Germany's far-reaching and influential leftfield and avant-garde, they approach the project from opposing angles to find a tense median between Irmler's wayward, wistful organ improvisations and Gut's tempered, programmed logic. In that sense, it's a canny play on contradictions, imposing a more mannered grammar upon intuitive, attuned musical expression to find a mutual revelation. The results are perhaps surprisingly fresh and spacious, cons… Read more
