Review

SMX are Max O’Brien and Sam Purcell (Blank Mind). ‘Sleep’ is an intoxicating live jam recorded in October 2015 during a period of emotional upheaval, exploring themes of discordance and euphoria. .On ‘Thief’, Koehler says: “Take what you need and take it anyway you can. If you get it, you deserve it, because it means you earned it. But just remember one thing: whatever you take can be taken from you too, so think long, act fast and do so with honour and pride or all will become chaos.” 110408;"Memory Disks. Volume One. Chevron. The Blackpool born sorcerer is conjuring up spellbinding tracks that boil and bubble between supernatural rave, occult acid and inverted techno. Dripping from speakers, a concoction of swirling chords simmer as a spiced shower of razor edged rhythms are poured into the pot. Shadowy notes ghost like phantoms behind crunching beats, beastly bars growl as keys slide and slither between nine short, medium and long excursions into the glow-stick festooned musical mind of Jonathan Valentine. Nestled amongst the bewitching synthesizer psychedelia, peering from behind the purple forests and white dwarf frogs, are less frenetic works, a soft balance to the frenzied chicanery and chrome plated magic. Simply put, a weird and wonderful EP where the only stable point, the only spot of secured safety, is the needle on the record.
