Boomkat Product Review:
Yet another great release from the Highpoint Lowlife imprint, this time showcasing the experimental solo musings of Keung Mandelbrot, who sculpted this four-part outing using only a guitar and a handful (well, eighteen actually) effects pedals. During the opening (title) cut especially, there are comparisons to be made between Mandelbrot's scrappy, pedal-driven DSP action and early Fennesz recordings, often bringing to mind the glory days of Hotel Paral.lel. Certainly at various points you'll be struck by the early-days-of-Mego vibes emanating from your speakers. All this is offset somewhat by the album's intermittent gushes of all-round harmonious loveliness, which shouldn't be regarded as a bad thing by any means - the fluctuation between surges of noise and more tranquilised drone passages works splendidly. Recommended.
