Boomkat Product Review:
Daniel ‘Oneohtrix Point Never’ Lopatin cohort Lee Tindall returns with this latest collection of warbling synth oddities for the on-form NNA Tapes label. A surprisingly melodic affair, Tindall sidelines his predilection towards extreme noise in favour of the kind of haunting, cavernous riffs that wouldn’t sound out of place on an Aphex Twin album (think SAW1+2). All this, and Tindall has managed to avoid the temptation to plonk a 4/4 over everything in the hope of making ‘techno’ – this is singular stuff, and Tindall’s vision is clear from beginning to end. With a virtuoso technical expertise, we are treated to far more than ‘simply’ synth jams as each track is pushed and pulled through a variety of half-working pedals, mixers and tape machines giving an unpredictability that’s rarely heard in the scene.
