Review: Mitchel Van Dither has been synonymous with the Kindred Spirits label up until now, an imprint that we have just so much time and respect for. He has, however, been branching out as of late, and his adventures have landed him a spot on Flying Lotus' mighty Brainfeeder. Two EP's containing tunes from Fool have already been released on the label, but the album format expresses their depth much more clearly, and with more freedom. Objectively, Fool is Brainfeeder through and through, a little work of art to fit in perfectly with the rest of this ever-surprising and always on-point catalogue. Recommended.
Review: Inga Copeland, of the infamous Hype Williams project alongside Dean Blunt, is back with her Lolina alias courtesy of a sweet self-release album to follow-up on last year's "Relaxin' With Lolina". As you'd expect, Lolina is an album of many shades and guises, with the only stable point being the artist's sporadic vocals riding in and out of the organised sonic noise. Sticking to a resolutely surreal setting, Copeland's lo-fi style is adapted to everything from broken, pseudo bass music - we know, that means pretty much nothing - and that is exactly what this album sounds like, nothing else. In fact, one could say that it acts as the culmination of the last five year's fascination with all things left of field, and it's most definitely worth a listen.
