Description

Kevin Martin and co's King Midas Sound enlist Christian Fennesz to initiate a promising four-part collaboration series. 'Edition 1' indulges' KMS's love of shoegaze, dub and textured drone dynamics across a wide-scoped 1 hour suite, also included in killer instrumental mixes that work beautifully in their own right. By expanding and elevating the group's introspective dynamic with the lofty perspective of Christian Fennesz, we're presented with an extended and closer examination of their hauntological parameters, divining their lost soul somewhere between Fennesz's ghostly guitar/electronic dimensions, the softly spoken registers of Kiki Hitomi and Roger Robinson, and Kevin Martin's guttural, gutted sonics. Effectively they've consolidated and transcended their touchstones - Portishead, My Bloody Valentine, Thomas Köner - most impressively with the stoned dub/trap lament, 'Loving or Leaving', or in the beat-less 13 minute anaesthetisation of 'Above Water', while the bonus instrumental versions on the download formats provide a more immersive, abstract soundscape, allowing you to fill in the gaps yourself.
