Boomkat Product Review:
**FEATURES FOUR BOOMKAT EXCLUSIVE TRACKS BY PART TIMER, HANNU, BENOIT PIOULARD & ADAM PACIONE** A quick scan of that line-up of artists will tell you what a splendid compilation this is poised to be: assembled are Lawrence English, Greg Davis, Sawako and Christopher Bissonette among others - indeed, factor in the likes of Fourcolor and Moskitoo, and you've got yourself a decent cross-section of the Kranky and 12k rosters offering their services on this release. Although the assembled artists tackle their tape-themed contributions from a variety of different angles (some embrace beats and finely polished surfaces while others emphasize the haziness and overall grit of the medium) there's really nothing here that could be described as difficult, and you'll find an all-round sense of beauty and harmoniousness in the work of everyone from Orla Wren to Mark Templeton. We're very fortunate to be able to offer you some extra content on this release, bolstering an already impressive compilation with four tremendous bonus contributions: Adam Pacione haunts the tracklist with the eerie and amorphous 'Tintype Restoration', only for Benoit Pioulard to grind out some oddly pretty tape noise from 'Cassette Francaise'. After Hannu lays down some reversed granular atmospherics Part Timer offers a more tangible and musically conventional piece complete with drums and loop based melodic narratives.
