More interesting music from Wales, this time by Chris France (aka Chilopod) who writes pretty significant audio letters using field recordings, sound sculptures and well distinguishable beats to achieve entertaining memories through intelligently resilient instrumental compositions. Exploring zones nearing the realm of deformed ectoplasmic clones of Hafler Trio and Zoviet France (in their early years) and fusing those unquiet diversities with (ir)regular pulses which appear every once in a while to lessen the tension, France determines his own coordinates in an area where ideas and sketches seem to evaporate one after another in delirious flurries; he’s very good in striking a good balance point between movement and stasis, so that “Skin picking” results as a positive effort by all means, thanks to a strange but functional elemental harmony that goes beyond a normal description.
