Description

Outstanding, otherworldly debut album proper by the Hype Williams collaborator known as Henny Moan and John T. Gast. An ambient enigma steeped in post-hypnagogic tristesse, 'Excerpts' is a cryptic hash of mutant dance music, lo-fi pop, and screwed lounge styles every bit as skewed and enigmatic as you might hope from someone who's worked so closely with Dean Blunt and Inga Copeland (he contributed to 'Black Is Beautiful' and 'The Redeemer' a.o.). Written and recorded early 2014 in South West England, it treats nostalgia and electronic romance with equal amounta shadowy ambiguity and screwball abstraction, exhibiting a keen ear for haunting hooks and atmospheres imagined from a peripheral insider's perspective. Its eleven tracks seem to melt imperceptibly between modes, prising open sinkholes between claggy acid jaxx, plummeting kosmiche and eldritch panoramas with a peculiar, personal brand of black magick and poetic license. The lingering effect is teasing, perfectly unresolved - they are 'Excerpts' after all - but in a manner that's already calling us back to its eyrie, almost Wheatley-esque allure.
