Boomkat Product Review:
Renick Bell follows up the gloopy dynamics of his ‘Wary’ LP for Halcyon Veil with a more spacious and percussion-focussed sound in ‘Turning Points’ for the Seagrave label
Renick’s ’Turning Points’ are concerned with pushing structures to the point of breaking down. Ok there are some moments that could be compared with Autechre or Rian Treanor, but perhaps better compared to a modern antecedent of Funkstorung and Funkarma, or the complex explorations of Dalglish.
