Alabama-born, New York-based producer Harrison King set out to make “conspicuously plastic, garbled and mismatched music” on this debut album. And yet a raw beauty emerges from the smouldering wreckage left by his collision of naive electronics and screamo/punk energy. The extreme dub echoes and scorched Casio tones of ‘Looking At Life Thru A Vase’ produce warped chill-out music for post-apocalyptic evenings in, while ‘Therapist Wrestle’ is part Nine Inch Nails, part Aphex at his most drill and bass. You won’t have heard anything quite like it before, that much we can guarantee.
