Through a series of clicks on Bandcamp, I stumbled upon Kit Records out of London, UK. They deliver a variety of experimental electronic releases, but the one that initially grabbed me was Object Agency, who deliver slightly more accessibly glitchy experimental drum n bass ala Aphex Twin, Authechre and Squarepusher. Maybe a less accessible Mouse on Mars? Who cares. This shit rules and you can either chill out to it, or toss it on at a party and you’re gonna have a good time.
I ordered this record and while I was bummed that it was coming from the UK, which meant a bit of transit time, the wait was worth it, because along with this album, Kit included a free Dromloch LP.
Dromloch is a collaboration between producer Antidröm and pianist Devon Loch. The A Side is basically a collection of live improvisations on a Hohner church organ breathing its last dying breaths. The B Side is a collection of contact mic field recordings.
I was listening to this the other morning while making breakfast. The A Side got my kid super stoked and the B Side made a great Saturday morning breakfast soundtrack. Drop this into a playlist at your local hipster brunch dive to watch a bunch of assholes trip over themselves to claim to know who it is or to clear out the after church crowd from the neighborhood diner. While this sounds like an insult, it isn’t meant to be. I’m a firm believer in weaponizing music and this stuff is begging to nuke someone’s consciousness. Five stars, multiple A+’s.
I’m looking forward to checking out rest of Kit Records discography, because any label that has a fuckin’ church organ in their headquarters is a label I want to give my money to.
Buy this stuff on Bandcamp. Follow the links in the text ya jerks.
