Boomkat Product Review:
One for fans of Ghost Box style hauntology or the free electronics of Ekoplekz; Stroud’s Dave Cudlip aka Radiolarians debuts a fuzzily nostalgic sound dispatched from the Klang Tone Records arm of his record shop
The eponymously titled first endeavour on Klang Tone presents 10 works produced “spontaneously as a collection of slightly sombre mood pieces punctuated by more upbeat wonky bedsit electronica”. The artist’s own description gives a good handle of what to expect; lo-fi, retro-futurist whimsy wrapped up in vintage-aping collaged artwork set to stimulate the nostalgia nodule of listeners of a certain age, able to recall early episodes of Tomorrow’s World and very used to the must of thrift shops.
It’s a regurgitation of an increasingly bygone era of British culture that still holds a sway over certain minds who view the digital world with trepidation and prefer to dwell in the amniotic succour of analogue electronics. Sounds cascade gently from the porridge sputter rhythm and arcing arps of ‘Actinomma sol’ to woozy one-key held-down drone of ‘Pterocorys minythorax’, passing in slow motion thru the asteroid fields of ‘Valkyrie pukapuka’, to starlit wheeze in ‘Gondwanaria hister’, Ekoplekzy chug on ‘Antarctissa cylindrica’, and spoojy bachelor pad space music in ‘Echinomma sphaerechinus’ on its passage to nostalgic pleasure centres.
