Snowghost Pieces Bureau B ★★★★

When scan­ning the track ti­tles of an al­bum, you know im­me­di­ately from words such as “de­fen­es­trate”, “pinozeek” and “yaak” that you’re not about to lis­ten to new mu­sic from Cher Lloyd. And so it proves with this col­lab­o­ra­tion from Di­eter Moe­bius (erst­while mem­ber of Krautrock pi­o­neers Clus­ter), Tim Story (Lunz Project) and Jon Leidecker (Nega­tiv­land). Snowghost Pieces gath­ers con­stituent parts into a se­ries of elec­tronic pieces that, while beau­ti­fully melodic, never con­sciously drags lis­ten­ers to sleep. Flat­head, Tread­mill, Vex and Frac­ture Fuss seep with clas­sic, fluid Krautrock lines, though they and oth­ers also dis­play sonic nig­gles, doubts and rusty edges. The re­sult is a record that could have been, in lesser hands, two un­easy halves, nei­ther elec­tronic fish nor fowl. But Snowghost Pieces is more har­mo­nious than brit­tle. bu­ Down­load: Frac­ture Fuss, Cliff Doze, Vex
