This is the label to watch at the moment, and this latest release from Philadelphia's Someone Else remains true to the innovative, forward-thinking sounds of previous gems. Futuristic soundscapes blend with funky, modern beat patterns. Let's push things forward!
Philadelphia's Sean O'Neal offers Microcosm this subtle, textural delight that falls somewhere between Perlon and Matthew Herbert's earlier works. Clickety-clack, found sound percussion, fuzzy tones and rumbling sub bass work together in fine form. Including a resonant, melodic rework from Ezekiel Honig, this easily ranks among my favorite minimal records of 2004, period.
