Sorry just a quickie, I know 1537 is a retro gig but just like I have done once or twice this year (with the new Clutch and Endless Boogie LPs) I’ve got really excited about a new LP; and not just because it’s all glossy and made from extra-thick lovely vinyl.
This one is Where We Were by Greg Haines, a British-born but Berlin resident composer, who has apparently only turned to beats, synths and dub with this new LP. It’s more than ambient, the tracks on Where We Were gently pulse and hum, build and climax to a variable array of gentle beats and analogue synth washes. It’s all a very late-night-driving-through-the-industrial-bit-of-a-city experience.
It’s early doors yet but ‘The Intruder’ and ‘Habenero’ are real keepers for me. I’ll bother you more about it later, but if you’d like to read a proper review, by a proper person then try here.
201 Down (still).
