Boomkat Product Review:
Lower case sound charmer, Stuart Chalmers follows a lovely Loop Phantasy volume for Ono into more degraded, abstracted zones in with Poetry of Decay; “A personal/universal exploration of mortality, fading memories, the nature of tape and failing old technology. The sounds of ephemeral life in all its imperfections. Understated romance and drama lay in-between the movements of this long-lasting, beautifully degraded and cohesive tape collage.”
The 30 minute tape piece, split here in seven parts, grows on the mind like a mildewed reminiscence, dredging up half-remembered nostalgic feelings and ambient reveries of a particularly sore and wasted type mutual to records by The Caretaker, Bellows or Indignant Senility. and even DJ Screw mixtapes.
