Boomkat Product Review:
Blinding 16th installment in Planet Mu’s singles series, this time coming to us from West Yorkshire’s ‘Local’. ‘They Are Local’ kicks off with some nifty analogue electrospasms that follow the Skanfrom handbook for synthpop pretty closely, before the track breaks halfway through and distorts itself into a genius spiritual follow-up to Aphex’s gigantic Windowlicker. Awesome stuff. ‘I am Local’ on the flip is more fragmented, 8-bit sounds fracturing themselves allover the place before a squashed beat tumbles in and takes over. Killer, and limited as per usual.
