Album review: Millimetre - '13 Homes' (Orectic)

Freak pop for people who fancy their vacuum cleaners a bit

Dense, dubby and crammed with dark corners full of surprises, Terence J McCaughey’s fourth album under the Millimetre guise whirls fragments as diverse as The Future Sound Of London, Prince, Tom Waits0, Tricky and Can into a veritable McFlurry of sonic weirdness that, thanks to a beady eye on song structure, never melts into formlessness. The likes of ‘Barefoot’ have a lurching, digital swamp-monster mischievousness, while the militantly industrial ‘Intimate With The Kitchen’ leaves its mucky synth discharge all over your nice clean Moulinex. The sicko probably thinks this is how pop music is made.
