Fletcher Pratt: Dub Sessions Vol. 3 tape

With a loose framework of dub reggae, Fletcher Pratt dives deep into cosmic mind soup with this tape. Much of it is more like electro-acoustic music with a beat, filled with chattering voices and seismic tonal shifts. Even though there’s palm trees on the cover, it’s not relaxed tropical chill-out music. It’s actually a lot colder and more barren than you might expect. The second side is a slow drizzle of melted tapes and downcast vibrations. Dub rarely sounds this sad or despondent.
maybe it isn’t really dub? It’s an other. Not for anyone who wants their spirits lifted, but otherwise, tune in on Bandcamp.
