Tim Walters: Stricture

Tim Walters has released a few stellar albums of deep-fried noise using analog synths and SuperCollider coding. His newest one doesn’t come with too much info, but I’m assuming it’s along the same lines. The 7 tracks unpredictably dart between various scenes and settings, from construction-like industriousness to weird bongwater splattering. “Expired! Perfect.” isn’t as explosive as the first track, but the strained, spy-like voices keep it on edge. “Taking the Skins for a Spin” is by turns rubbery, static-riddled, and bitcrushed, with a few moments where it seems like a code is cracked and everything abruptly bursts open. “Flusterville” is both swampy and electrically charged, and “Patience Practice” has a similar mood but feels like it’s aiming skyward.
