Boomkat Product Review:
Not sure where this one has come from and the infosheet is a mostly impenetrable thing, but what we can tell you is that it's a pretty special double LP of slowly bubbling Ambient and spaced out electronic music that comes highly recommended if you were into Firecracker's excellent 'Mac-Talla Nan Creag' project or PAN's recent 'Mono No Aware' compilation.
A place-specific recording of distinct analogue bucolic techno, this one comes from somewhere in Scotland and is packaged in one of those typographically dominant sleeves that's almost always (although there are some notable exceptions!) the mark of some kind of eccentric brilliance. It fits in with a long line of Scottish electronic music that heads back to BoC, Christ, Marcia Blaine School For Girls and the Pub/Ampoule axis, which tells you that there is nothing overly complex or challenging here but that it’s a gateway to simpler, hazier, more innocent times.
As someone called “The Poacher” explains on those mostly opaque sales notes: "A rich tapestry from a strange and beautiful mind. This isn’t a vacuous collection of junk collected by some preening magpie but something real, something built with love, craft and tirelessly acquired skill. Referential yes, but only so as to pay respectful homage to tradition and culture. A precise execution on proper machines with big hands and pop-eye forearms, undeniably heartfelt."
We ain’t arguing with that <3.
