    Ambulance - Antiques Roadshow

    this was released ages ago? really? no. god, how could we have missed it. well, all the 7"'s i get are all stored in this box and i must have just filed it away as a matter of course. still i'll make amends by commenting on it here, whoever ambulance are, they've an lp coming out on planet mu soon so you can call this review timely. a lot less hectic than what we've normally come to expect from planet mu. both pieces are dark and deceptively creepy.

    Decal - Moylough Remix

    having impeccable taste in tough electro, their material for planet mu seems a lot more restrained. their '404 not found' album has become a bit of a minor classic here at absorb towers and this 7" sounds more poppier than anything on that album. 'moylough remix' is totally heart-wrenching and gorgeous, a lone riff that twist and contorts around layered strings, ever-complex arrangements and lo-slung bass. more like this please.

    Electronic Music Composer - Suggested Surgery

    two pieces of of jittery schizophrenic insanity that fit somewhere inbetween the rave ramblings of squarepusher and the abrasiveness of dj scud. 'suggested surgery' and 'wretched idea' tries to settle into a groove and deliver futile efforts of melody and rhythm, but just ends up giving up and throwing the most violent tantrum. if 'idm' sadly stands for intelligent dance music then this is 'sdm'. stupid, sick and sadistic.

    Weaver001 - A Step Aside

    beautiful shimmering pieces of otherworldly ambience from the anonymous weaver001. 'a step aside' is all angelic voices and distant guitar work set to a light shuffle. not really intricate or even electronic, but with a melancholic charm all its own. 'sun spot' is more of a variation than a entirely new piece of work. possibly the least accomplished release in this series. but, if they ever decide to develop on this with an album, we'll definitely be interested.
