Lord Skywave - the rouse of Simon Lord - is centred upon his
father's rare synthesiser of the same name, and that's an
important facet of a screwball piece. The LP cannot easily be
boxed, as tea-garden plaintives rest unfathomably close to
broken beat crunches and throat-bulging bass.
If anything, the record is probably too short, although its
brevity allows the jigsaw parts to slot together without much
visible glue. And here Simon enlists soul singers, hazy
summertime samples and even his own nan, the late Madeleine
Dring, herself an accomplished and successful performer.
Throughout the emphasis ranges from fear, games and
(possibly?) love, but viewed from a shrouded and irregular
angle. For a musician who admits he has been influenced by
both dubstep and cats, this isn't greatly surprising.
