Boomkat Product Review:
*Vinyl edition comes with a free 15 minute exclusive download redeemable from the label* With a moniker like Time Attendant you'd hope that 'Tournaments' would be a dimension-jumping marvel of Gallifreyan proportions, so thank goodness it actually is. Coming from the Jonny Mugwump-curated Exotic Pylon camp, you should know it's gonna be a bit bonkers but check the crew involved; Ensemble Economique's Bryan Pyle on mastering duties and Ian Hodgson (Moon Wiring Club) on the artwork and video front. You might think Paul Snowdon would be a little overwhelmed, but he handles things with an outsider's ease. This is peculiar music from the get go, and Snowdon deftly avoids facile comparison with the slew of Radiophonic-ish electronic records filling up the shelves right now. Rather Snowdon's particular sound is rooted in tape experiments just as much as the familiar ping of the humble synthesizer, and the fact that these experiments collide in the shape of fully formed 'pieces' seems almost like chance. The skeletons of dance music and classic pop are in the sideboard somewhere, rotting, but 'Tournaments', like Ekoplekz's many dusty curios before it feels like something totally singular. Well good.
