Boomkat Product Review:
**Debossed jacket. Individually numbered edition of 500 copies** Ralph Cumbers kicks off a slew of imminent releases with the modular indulgence of his 'Bugbranded EP' on Public Information's latest dispatch. It's a quintessentially British display of voltage control and knob-fondling, blending that explorative Radiophonic feeling with proggy-minded, live arrangements in debt to early '90s AI styles. In a proper man-machine show down, Ralf tweaks out crisply psychoactive melodies and halcyon acid jack on 'Sometime The Only Way To Go Out Is Further In', and a more delicate, psilocybic folk dance on 'Elsewhen', while the flipside tracks take a more eldritch soundsystem vibe with the plonging subbass tones and politely mannered progressions of 'Faster Than The Speed Of Love' and the squashed, eccentric bogle of 'Neon Black and Vulcane'.
