Iglomat - Iglomat (4 stars)




Edinburgh-based laptop whiz David Jack has made three albums of atmospheric electronica on his own already, but spearheading this debut from a transatlantic four-way collaboration, he adds a more organic post-rocking vibe to proceedings. Layers of moody guitar add a certain Mogwai feel to tracks like ‘Tornadic Activity’ and ‘Stormtroopers of Gentrification’, while the ambient waves of ‘Dolphins from Whales’ and jazzy rhythms of ‘Two by Two’ demonstrate a breadth of influence and imagination lacking in a lot of electronica today.

By turns sumptuous and ragged, threatening and emotive, this is the soundtrack to the hip indie movie in your head.
