LazyTapes has made quite an impression over the past few months with an intriguing pair of releases that saw label founder Cera Khin split two cassettes with fellow Bristolian and Young Echo figurehead Ossia, along with jungle deconstructionist Christoph De Babalon.
The third release from the LazyTapes camp represents a divergence from the template set out by previous releases – a solo affair from Swedish techno-futurist Peder Mannerfelt, “The Screws That Hold The World Together” is a three-track 12″ that veers between spacious ambience, abstruse vocal manipulations and brute rhythmic contortionism. As always with Mannerfelt, it’s an ambitious piece of work.
Today we’re psyched to be bringing you an exclusive premiere of that record’s closing track. ‘Every Day Had A Number‘ is a stark and unsparing percussive study formed of fragmented breaks, drum loops that have been gutted, degraded and haphazardly rearranged to create a fascinatingly detailed sonic patchwork that rewards repeated listening. Over the course of the track’s ten-minute duration, Mannerfelt meticulously sculpts and chisels these percussive frameworks, adorning them with a range of rarefied sonics and crystalline aural designs that coalesce to create something that’s far more than the sum of its parts.
The Screws That Hold The World Together is released via LazyTapes on 14th May 2018. The 12″ comes in an edition of 300, hand-stamped and with a two colour screenprint designed by Patch D Keyes.
