Boomkat Product Review:
Killer, rhythmelodic breaks and absorbing downbeats from DIY instrument builder Andreas Oskar Hirsch and percussionist/field recording “perfectionist” Richard Eigner of Ritornell, who has drummed for Flying Lotus, Dimlite and Patrick Pulsinger among others.
Both sides are smart: Stalker approximates something like AFX’s computer controlled instruments rearranged by Fishli & Weiss into a fluid mechanics of Hirsh’s self-built Electric Palm Leaf and the Carbophon, “a kind of super-kalimba” played with the rudest swing by Eigner; whereas Swoop is better defined by its exploration of minimalist acoustic space, convecting the soundfield with a mix of swirling snare rolls, keening drones and splintered jazz breaks with a certain late night quality somewhere between Lynch/Badalamenti and experimental Italian library sounds from Gruppo.
