Boomkat Product Review:
Listening Tree marks something of a departure for Tim Exile. Not only does it see the long-running Planet Mu contributor hopping over to Warp Records, it also finds him caught up in a strange, pop-oriented universe in which his commendable post drill 'n' bass production and abstract beat-crafting skills reside next to strange pop vocals. If you're feeling especially generous you might think of Exile's voice as being like a more youthful version of Robert Wyatt's plaintive, unconditioned delivery, but otherwise it's a very strange presence on the record, sounding out of place at first, with its lack of conventional musicality and expression destined to grate on some listeners. As you get further into the album there's more character evident in Exile's intonation - sometimes you might say there's too much: 'Carouselle' makes good on its musical theatre nomenclature, although it's more Gilbert & Sullivan than Rogers & Hammerstein, with Exile sounding strangely haughty - in fact, imagine David Tibet fronting a light opera with Squarepusher in the orchestra pit and you're along the right lines. Oh and it's got a bit of a post-credit crunch theme to it as well. It's all absolutely insane when you stop to think about it. All credit to Mr Exile though; he's not far away from being the very model of a modern electronic songsmith.
