old apparatus - Alfur
Another dose of heavy, dream-catching material from Old Apparatus on their Sullen Tone label, this time credited to A. Levitas. 'Boxcat's' wonky shuffle springs out of layers of bucolic field recordings and is an engaging opener, but it's 'Schwee' that is the undeniable centre-piece of the EP - indeed it's what one of the best things OA have put out to date, all sighing synths, serene vocal pressure and spring-loaded steppers' drums. 'Cauliroot' is Boards of Canada atmospherics refracted through a DMZ-generation sensibility, while 'Coalapps''s elegiac organ tones do nothing to diminish its palpable club ambitions. Still, this is deep stuff, more suited to the headphones than to the 'floor, offering up new detail and new pleasure with each successive listen. 'Lingle' rounds off the EP in sepulchral, decidedly post-Burial fashion - it's probably the closest thing on here to the collective's much-loved Deep Medi debut.
