Boomkat Product Review:
Having already come up with a full-length for Split Femur Recordings (now there's an "Ouch!"-inducing label name) earlier on in 2007, Mark Lippett debuts on Make Mine Music with this five-track, mini album. The Planivaar sound is bound to draw comparisons with Mùm's child-like electronic scrawl, taking in toy instruments, glistening xylophone melodies and scrappy bits of domestic ambience and odd electroacoustics. The titles probably push the point a little too hard, but don't be put off by 'A Is For Apple' and 'Brave Lion', it's not quite as cutesy as it might come across on paper (although actually, I could probably do without those distorted baby voices during the latter track). Seriously lo-fi, scrambled up beats arise during 'Marvin', sounding like a six-year-old Squarepusher might have, had he been given access to a sampler while at primary school. These clattering low-grade electronics carry over into 'Sleepy Eyes', only to fade out over a sequence of lightly phased guitar chords and tape hiss. The final piece, 'Adrift', is an eleven minute meeting of warm, droning synth chords, zingy electronic tones and submerged tuned percussion, leaving you in the mood for a glass of warm milk before bed.
