British enfant terrible Gerry Read returns with more outsider house/techno derivatives on Ramp Recordings: and it's all rather compelling as always! Smoky, lo-fi and textured shenanigans are all rough around the edges in Read's signature style, but have an unusual charm. Take "Bounty Methods" for instance, that sounds like an old scuffed up record from a bargain bin; its mesmerising symphonic loops much in the vein of The Caretaker and sometimes even skipping out of time. But it's all in a hypnotic style and all the while accompanied by smacky, four to the floor groove. Elsewhere, the woozy swing fuelled bleep fest that is "Frankly" is worthy of you attention, not to mention the charmingly titled closer "Man From The Moon Came Down Too Soon" that works that pawnshop drumcomputer like a you know what.
