Boomkat Product Review:
Leicester-based Jon Attwood is the first UK artist to release on Resonant, but he's certainly been around the block once or twice during his nigh-on decade-long career, contributing to the catalogues of labels like Darla, Awkward Silence and Ochre along the way. This latest album from Attwod was recorded over a two year period, yet finds him stripping away his previous sound in favour of a more pared-down aesthetic, focussing on his lonesome guitar intonations and the spaces they occupy. This is post-rock but not necessarily a familiar strain, with Attwood often taking more of an ambient soundscaper's approach to composition rather than the conventional route. This isn't always the case however, 'I Know I Shouldn't (But I Do) sounds very much informed by Earth's Hex; or Printing In The Infernal Method and is none the worse off for it. Deeper into the album the echo chamber drums of 'Eighteen Days' sound vast and forlorn, perfectly framing Attwood's tremulous waves of delay-soaked guitar.
