Articulation without the Tongue

by Macroglossia

supported by

Ben Harris It sounds like a dozen musical experiments going off at once, each individual element blatantly ignoring other noises going off around it - until suddenly everything falls into place and it makes some sort of twisted sense. At turns charming, worrying, annoying and genuinely hard to categorize without resorting to chin-stroking terminology like "improvisation" and "musique concrete". Brilliantly primitive, they make it sound so effortless. Favorite track: No Choice.
