Boomkat Product Review:
Pendle Coven have always matched their seemingly endless enthusiasm for a wide array of musical flavours with a production aesthetic that's refused to settle with one stylistic model, instead infusing their work with elements drawn from Techno, Dubstep, Hardcore, Jungle and classic House music. This latest EP, their first in over a year, sticks to this chameleon hallmark and unleashes possibly their sickest construcion to date - the mighty "Brittle Bones". Squashed around a rediculous bassline and unfolding with the kind of percussive fervour that sounds like a cross between Anthony Shakir and Monolake messing around with Dego - this is the sort of awkward material that just will not fail to crush allcomers when played double loud - an out and out forward thinking club killer. "Waveplate", meanwhile, klanks forward with a nod towards the Basic Channel school of technoid production, spacious, panning 4/4 of the highest order, deep and progressively heavy - just right. "Golden Hadron", finally, echoes a beatless shimmer of sound for an effervescent epilogue that seals this twelve with a cathartic flick of the eyelids, dub styles. Killer twelve!
