Boomkat Product Review:
After recent forays into haunted eldritch rave scenes, Moon Wiring Club follows a whim for slopped and screwed styles on ‘The Most Unusual Cat in the Village,’ each measuring up to 10mins square and seeing him reel off into far more opiated, twilight interzones recalling a natural analog to The Caretaker (who originally hails from relatively not far from Clinksell), as much as Spectre-style illbient, or even Neu!’s ’Neu! 2’ B-side and parts of Mark Leckey’s ‘Dream English Kid’ soundtrack.
’Spirit wave Communication’ starts it off on a dirty sprite tip with squashed country soul slowed to a crawl and rent with Philip Jeck-like reverb, and ‘The Phantom Of The Antique Shop’ follows with an extra layer of unsettling high register sferic tones that sound like a TV playing from rooms away, and peppered with samples in something like DJ Shadow doing chopped & screwed parlour music.
The intoxicating fumes of ‘Posthumous Self-Portrait’ feel like an expansion of sections to Mark Leckey’s nostalgia trips, with a really beautiful beatless section that we’ve not heard him do before, and ‘Occult Actress Folds Old Newspaper’ pushes further along that route with deeply hypnagogic effect.
