How was your experience on the new Ear Candy Music?Let us know!
Collages are assembled and dismantled, temporal and spatial boundaries fluctuate and movement is an overarching theme. Surrealist drowned world atmospheres sculpted far enough away from the source of inspiration leave plenty of room for ambiguity. The nocturnal nature of the recording process is self-evident, and pieces like "Leave Them All Behind" tap into a deep psychedelic undercurrent. Confused narratives, emotions and aleatory hallucinations ebb and flow throughout. "I Knew You Would Respond" evokes murky soundtrack terrain with eerie repetitive strings and ambient respite, disrupted periodically by brief bursts of granular noise. It's one of the records most unnerving moments, possibly as it's one of the most recognizably human.
The album navigates dense passages with recurring signifiers. Hollow percussion, modulating delay and curious field recordings come and go, maintaining a perpetual state of flux where nothing stays the same for long. The drowned world theatricals return on the swamp-like "Lizard In Fear" whilst string rhythms creep in on the penultimate track to incite momentary electroacoustic harmony. Floating synthesis slowly washes over and the title track unfolds -- five minutes of reverb-laced portamento, visions of decay, and Editions EG influenced world-building. Movement is key. Chemical Flowers features string parts arranged and recorded by JG Thirlwell (Foetus, Manorexia, Xordox). Additional cello played by Lucinda Chua and saxophone by Karl D'Silva. Features artwork by Johannes Schnatmann and Bill Kouligas. Mastered by Rashad Becker.
