Boomkat Product Review:
Luke Abbott takes one step back and two forward as Earlham Mystics with the Truth EP for Gold Panda’s Notown Recordings.
Scrolling back before he veered into symphonic realms with the Wysing Forest  album, the Truth EP hits the ‘floor directly and from more inquisitive angles across four tracks loaded for mind and body.
Truth gives the EP a slow chugging and airy R&Bass pop impetus from the front, sloping up to a noisily bittersweet crescendo before following his impulses into the palpitating patterns and head-waltzing arpeggios of Fuck Hype, whose straight-forward simplicity is coolly belied by some of his craftiest groove calculations.
B-side, he tees up the wooden knocks and strobing chords of Stolen Hearts only shades away from his label boss’s pastoral techno pitch, and then lets it all flow out with the milky kosmische spumes of Hera.
