Boomkat Product Review:
Consummate collaborator Fred Walmsley aka Dedekind Cut tags in Mica Levi, Prurient, Elysia Crampton, Jesse Osborne-Lanthier, Dirch Heather, and Zack Hill for a multi-tiered, heavily abstracted session following from the $uccessor album for NON, his American Zen album with Hospital Productions, and collabs with Chino Amobi and Rabit.
Yeh, he’s been a busy cat of late, and his latest self-released trip, recorded between fall 2016 and summer 2017 shows no sign of that creative energy abating. In almost palindromic form, The Expanding Domain rises and falls with absorbingly dramatic cadence, entering with the decompression chamber ambience of Cold Bloom and the escalating terror of Lil Puffy Coat in solo mode, to bring in Dirch Heather’s soured synths and Osborne-Lanthier’s deconstructed EDM palette on the unrelenting anti-banger Fear In Reverse II, then calving off into an electrical storm with Prurient on the title cut, and bringing us back to a numbed null point with Mica Levi’s silvery piano refrain and Elysia Crampton’s angelic touch in Das Expanded, Untitled Riff.
If you were in any doubt as to this guy’s breadth of vision, this EP will see you right.
