    Venetian Snares - Songs About My Cats

    venetian Snares (AKA 25-year-old Canadian Aaron Funk) might occasionally lapse into pointless avant garde piano dribbles and the like, but then restless minds do sometimes lose focus don't they? [What am I supposed to be doing? - Ed] Look Elsewhere, though and you'll find nuggets like "Poor Kakarookee", where contorted pitter patter beats sound like they're directly played onto your skull, and "Pouncelciot", where futuristic glitch dynamics are caught up in a comical horror with a zany sax man. Aaron deals in scatterings of screeching treble and freeform inspired wayward rhythms, and that cute title in no way prapares you for the blistering assault contained within.
