review by Aurelio Cianciotta for neural.it
This luxurious edition has sprung from the elaborations of the Toad Blinker combo (musician Dan Hayhurst and animator-illustrator Rueben Sutherland). The release is a 12” vinyl with “zoetropic” images in a pure psychedelic style, something we haven’t seen at the office for time immemorial. Dekorder have thought this move out well: the format being an effective way to present an album of dreamlike settings, seventies inspiration, contemporary electronica, drone music and free-from improvisation. In reviews, some have suggested this work is a sort of avant-techno, though our first listening generated a feeling of a lo-fi deconstruction (maybe a bit freaky but genuine), realized using the stylizations of prog-rock epic. The rewriting here has taken fragments and insights and organized them into real environments, involving the linguistic elements of the players, mutations between analogue and digital and echoing loops. There is an overall informal aplomb present and a kaleidoscopic perspective in which one small movement changes everything: the passages are at the time dreamy and fatal, airy in their junctions, flickering in their effects and cohesive in their imaginative (but vague) narration – a little indolent and dazed. A project, in short, that, although not pervaded by extreme concepts, is still characterized by fruitful interweavings, presaging an evolution and an expressive potential that may bloom even more powerfully.

Sculpture: Slime Code
Slime Code is an exotic particle soup of pause button tape edits, varispeed action, VU busting tape saturation, freakform noise, grazing tape loop critters, and electronic rhythms.
The music was performed live to 8 track tape by Dan Hayhurst and Reuben Sutherland on 1st July 2011.
7 unique dubs to C20 compact cassette were executed by DH, and a digital edit was compiled from the C20s on August 6th 2011.
The 7 unique C20s and free unlimited digital manifestation will be available through Kaleidoscope from Valentine’s Day.
