Green Park Review

by Kingsley Marshall

Despite releasing a plethora of albums in addition to a wealth of releases for such notables as Worm Interface, Language, Skam, and Warp, Simon Pyke's music has remained enviably untainted and sanguine. This, his fifth full-length, continues where he left off on Me Shape with a unique blend of often-creepy, occasionally comical electronica which shuffles indecisively from the morose "Sopping Wet" -- where it takes a Latin rhythm to lift an oppressive combination of industrial clanks and clouded synths -- to the self-esteem-stricken "I Hope You Like It." These maudlin beats will be lapped up by followers of Autechre and their ilk, though they are perhaps best kept away from those with an uneasy disposition.
