Boomkat Product Review:
Presenting songs and electronic compositions to delight in and marvel at, Parallax Error Beheads You has been worth the wait. Although it may have taken him about six years to do so, Ben Jacobs has at long last followed-up his universally praised Mastered By Guy At The Exchange album with another compendium of ingenious electronic productions and laugh-out-loud lyrical whimsies. 'Gum Chimes' opens the album in fine style with a swaggering ditty that has more in common with showtunes than normal electropop. Not entirely dissimilar, 'Orphaned' sounds more like a seizure than an actual piece of music, but it's great nonetheless, highlighting Jacobs' virtually unparalleled skill as a programmer of musical machinery. The drum fill at the beginning sounds like it's about to launch into that now infamous cover of The Bill theme tune that featured on a Tigerbeat6 compilation a few years back, but for better or worse, we're spared a return to novelty records. Up next, 'Nord Lead Three' has to be one of the finest songs ever to pay homage to a synthesizer - and there have surely been several over the years - it's a little creepy in a Cronenberg-esque, slightly sexualised fashion, but clearly Tundra is a man with a very special relationship with machines, so there should be nothing surprising about that. Next comes 'The Entertainment', which sounds for all the world like a dodgy top 10-bothering euro-trance anthem, but somehow he always gets away with churning out this sort of thing, perhaps thanks to his freakish technical ability and a tendency to approach his art with a sense of humour that always steers clear of irony. Marvellous.
