Boomkat Product Review:
Smoked-out, heavy-lidded loops and grooves from Joe Herrick, weaving between Jan Jelinek-styled ersatz ambient and sawn-off boogie slink, with a number of odd eldritch detours
As the title implies, ’Dream Reading’ is a trippy suite of roving offbeats riddled with a strongly oneiric appeal. The 14 tracks are all selected from some five years worth of work, and render a multi-dimensional mosaic of ideas, tiling half-cut nods to new age ambient, Hypnagogic pop and screwed hip hop into a mercurial portrait of the artist’s inner soundscape.
In the album’s most convincingly dreamlike moments, the eyrie ‘Hamzanama’ reminds of Mike Rutledge’s low key classic ‘Riddles of the Sphinx’, and the damp murk of ’Sharrow Night’ recalls DJ Yo-Yo Dieting at his most smudged, but half the fun of this side is the unpredictable track sequencing, which takes an oblique, mazy route to its elusive and playfully surprising conclusions.
