Here’s an unexpectedly beautiful take from Static Cleaner Lost Reward’s new cassette on Altered States Tapes. The work of Tarquin Manek of Bum Creek, Static Cleaner Lost Reward is but one cassette among at least three that he’s released of late: two under his own name, and one as Static Cleaner. The track at hand is less frenetic than the material we’ve featured by another of Manek’s projects, Thugquota, as it makes a break from the lurid humour of that project into a sound you can dream inside of. I’ve just read Rendezvous with Rama by Arthur C Clarke, so it kinda reminds me of that scene where the stranded astronaut realises there are things living in that foreign cylindrical ocean. We’ve got a bunch of Manek’s material we want to write about in greater depth soon, so keep an eye out.
