Something has brightened up both my screen and Sunday evening - the video for "TV Troubles", by Boxcutter (a.k.a Barry Lynn) from his forthcoming Planet Mu album, titled 'The Dissolve'. The video and the tune itself capture a drowsy and evocative tone. I really love the acidity it's laced with.
Boxcutter's album is being driven by a new 12" - 'Allele" and "Other People"
"Allele" is certainly on dubstep form. It jitters with jungle and grows with distant, accumulative sonics.
"Other People" has a provocative 2-step vibe that plays with a deceiving summer sound through warming bass and equally drowsy harmonics.
"The Dissolve" is released on Planet Mu, April 25th 2011.
