Aris Kindt: Floods

Aris Kindt: Floods

There’s a few CDs that have been sitting on my desk that came out of nowhere that I’ve been meaning to write about, and this is one of them. This is a duo including Francis Harris of Frank & Tony, and it’s way deeper, dubbier, and darker than their relaxed, blissful house tracks. Definitely some parallels to Dubchord and similar/related dub techno artists, but there’s something murkier and more decaying about this album. A bit more distortion, a bit more manipulated instruments lurking underneath, a considerable amount of subtlety. It creeps up on you with repeated listens, and it’s seriously great. There’s the upfront, bassy dub-techno pulse, but there’s wayward drifting sounds and some gorgeous, distant melodies. The duo threads a lot of seemingly alienated aspects together, but it’s remarkably cohesive.
