Review: Despite releasing a series of inspired, out-there 12" singles on Tabernacle, Offseason and Going Good, we're no nearer to discovering the identity of Anom Vitruv. In many ways, it doesn't matter. The music he produces - a ghostly blend of curious found sounds, crusty ambience, mawkish deep house and unsettling techno - seems to revel in its unmarked, untitled nature. This long player for Canada's Total Stasis continues on his now familiar theme, quietly shuffling between eerie soundscapes, experimental interludes, dubbed-out minimalist oddness (the weird but immersive "Track 3") and clanking, industrial house (the alien electronics and metallic percussion of "Track 4").
Review: It took Regularfantasy (real name Olivia Carman) almost three years to make a follow-up to her superb 2015 debut, Born On The Weekend, yet this sequel to her comeback 12", Tales From a Plush Palace, has appeared within three months of its predecessor. Sunsets and Sublets is a typically colourful and herb-powered affair, with Carman and collaborators (old pal Sophie Sweetland and Hashman DJ being the highest profile) laying down cuts that variously mix and match elements of bumpin' U.S garage, blazed Vancouver deep house, loved-up synth-pop, sunset-ready slo-jams, horizontal ambient mood-scapes and lo-fi R&B.
