An assault of percussive pulse
Warm Digits are good friends with fellow northeasterners Field Music – David Brewis even plays here on bass duties – and share their penchant for the warm analogous textures of ’70s leftfield. The similarities end there; ‘Keep Warm…’ owes heavily to the kosmische’s constant percussive pulse rather than anything more melodic. The duo started as a techno-based laptop outfit, however, and it’s the lingering hangover from that which prevents this falling too far into pastiche. ‘Weapons Destruction’ is a glitch-tinged beat-heavy assault, and it’s moments like these which add a compelling modernity to their retrospective sound.
