Crystal Shards - <>

More from previously digged Night Control and like his excellent Death Control record (collated from an Arthur Russell-style collection of tracks and demos), this older stuff has a similar mystique, just kicking it morning style as opposed to the late night nirvana of the newer stuff. Dodecahedron is right; this is fragmented, built like a faberge egg, you know, man made but otherwise robotic, and inside it's shuffly clutter pop from w/ coloured beads and condensed handclaps. Various textures push “<>” along and lend it that time passing kind of feel while stilted beats keep it above a surface of gravelly ambience.
