What We'll Be: Subject/Object 12"

What We’ll Be: Subject/Object 12″

Debut 12″ by this project of Pipé Scuttleworth, also of The Siege. The material that I’ve heard from that group sounded somewhat like a more overtly techno version of New Order to my ears, and this one has a similar live band electronic feel, but more downtempo. “Clara Moonglow’s Magic” has sort of a lonely desert highway drive vibe similar to FWY!, taking its sweet time to draw a straight line. “Opener For A Yoshi Maru Dragon Year” has a bit more complicated beat structures, but it still a calm atmosphere. “Snow Day” is an icy journey that takes a while to slowly wake up, but eventually rides gliding synths through a ticking beat before crumbling into gravel. “Yoshi’s Quaalude” is briefer and more kompakt, packing twinkling melodies and a steady beat into a couple of all-too-short minutes.
