Boomkat Product Review:
*One of our favourite albums of the year given a killer 20-track remix treatment including Grouper and more.* Diamond Catalog's 'Magnified Palette', the vehicle for Pat Maherr (Indignant Senility) and Lola Conchita's fractal Techno dreams (and one of our very favourite records this year), is disseminated by an eclectic set of underground characters including Grouper, Driphouse, Future Blondes and loads of mysterious names we've never seen before. They range from slow glazed downbeats courtesy of Opium & Cherry Cola to Liz Harris' sumptuously screwed shoegaze implosions, and with 20 of them on offer there's just about every integer of f*ckedness found in between. Driphouse, fresh from his Spectrum Spools LP offers a demented, spitting diffusion, while Future Blondes keep close to the offset 4/4 aesthetic. Dariius serves a super-lush and clanking Industrial version, there's pure noise from Fecallove, Jacket Juice drop a maelstrom of overdriven electro-samples, Unknown Bum loses his sh*t in three mental versions, and 1nt20 makes a bloody amazing, deconstructed electro-acoustic racket. To be honest, we've got an inkling that half of those names are analogs for Pat and Lala themselves, which we've absolutely no complaint with, and makes this collection all the more crucial for any self-respecting post-techno-noise space cadets. So good.
