Ovuca : Wasted Sunday
Aphex-approved Laplander mellows out
Sure, it's often thrilling to hear, say, Aphex or Squarepusher ricocheting madly off the walls of their own genius, tossing countless ideas away into a mad cyclone of inspiration. But the satisfying thing about 'Wasted Sunday' is that it beckons a certain abstinence into the equation, the sparse, minimal likes of 'Afternoon Girl' and 'Gas Bubbles' following their quirks to near-revelatory conclusions of alien serenity and mutant beauty.
Ultimately, those idiosyncracies burrow their way, weevil-like, to the surface. 'One For The Trouble' finds Perala and his mates, royally fucked, singing a cappella nonsense through fits of giggles. But they deserve a party. After all, Braindance has just discovered its new heir.
