Bitcrush - Epilogue in Waves

(n5MD)

ATMOSPHERICS

In conclusion to a kind of Bitcrush triptych, Gridlock’s Mike Cadoo has made the bold but logical step away from twittering electronics altogether, here moulding pensive soundscapes with nowt but the traditional guitar, bass, drums and spare spectral voices. By way of inspiration you can imagine the maestro gazing fixedly out to sea for impossibly long stretches of time, and while it is true that the listener really has to be in the mood for much the same (try a lukewarm bath), with track names like ‘What Would Hope Be Without Disappointment’ smacking of histrionic solemnity, there is an aural conveyance of pertinent emotion that is right on the money. Affecting stuff.
