Boomkat product review for:

pye corner audio - The Black Mill Tapes (Volumes 1&2) (Second Edition)

*Limited copies - warehouse find!* The furtive Radiophonic modifications of Pye Corner Audio have been sorely overlooked by much of the current electronics scene - despite a contribution to the Ghost Box Study Series of 7"s, a cassette release for the excellent Further Records, and a number of self-released gems. Type strive to redress that imbalance with a double LP compilation of his deliciously damaged Black Mill Tapes volumes 1 & 2, which were originally issued on his eponymous digital imprint. There are rumours that in another life he was an engineer to the stars, and while that can't be verified, there's certainly an air of expertise about this bumper set of 21 productions. Given a new lease of life on vinyl, they consume the senses with a cool-handed grasp of cinematic narration and mystical analogue production values at once evoking the soundtracks of mid-'60s Doctor Who, half-remembered Giallo missions and the home-smoked ambient techniques of early Boards Of Canada. There's also an underlying propulsion that pushes this collection forward, just perfect for narrowed-eye night drives (you'll want to listen to this alone; put a turntable on the passenger seat); learned and low slung rhythms which almost subliminally motor forward while faded melodies intimate a deeply layered personality which reveals new secrets with every listen. As anyone who knows this sound will cosign: it's an all too often imitated and hackneyed style. But we can sincerely say, this one really is a little bit special.
