      New on Planet Mu!

      ‘Manuscripts Don’t Burn’ starts by growing into shape, before Rudi’s double-tracked harmonies drop into place, to the laidback ‘Perfect Lust’ with it's lightly treated vocals and swooping bleeps, this is intriguing and lovely music; in 'Song Of Praise' harmonies take flight before they’re dragged down and bent out of shape while the graceful melodies are rendered bleeping and vibrating and casting 3D shapes. Check ‘Filthy Logic’s’ weird but comfortable mix of choir-like vocals and John Carpenter synths, or ‘Stop/Reject’s’ manipulated guitar solos over twilight synths and lush piano runs which recall 80’s Balearic pop. This is an unusually brave and modern album where dubstep's modes and fx and intelligent artful pop sit very comfortably together.
