Here is some attempted dancing-about-architecture concerning this release:
1 - Late In The Day (4:02)
A melancholy acidic tune, acoustically quite dry for added intimacy.
2 - Get A Taste (Weakly Non-Linear Mutual Attraction Mix) (3:05)
Harsh beats and a dissonant chaos synth preceed some lush computerised singing and finally rapping / screaming over a gabba-esque finale.
3 - Grasshopper Lies Heavy (3:01)
Moody chords and bubbling acid along with breakbeats and ominous computer singing.
4 - Swampy (Lengthened) (3:56)
More harsh asthetics, attempting to get exactly half-way inbetween melody and dissonance.
5 - Face Something (2:35)
Bleak lyrics tell the truth about the void, while the relentless disco sounds of 4am monged and confused land go round and round in a soul-sinking yet surprisingly catchy cacophony.
6 - Temple Clap (5:21)
This tune is made up of tiny pieces of field recordings made on various trips away, including the drum from a Shinto temple in Tokyo; various train noises and announcements from Japan; birds in West London; and a cable car, some running water and a spinning metal catch on a pole from Switzerland. These sounds are layered with the results of a session banging various gongs and other percussive instruments in a kitchen, and a composite clap sound resulting from clapping under the arches of several bridges in West London. A gendy string is the icing on the cake.
