Rushford, James & Talia, Joe – “Manhunter” – [Kye]

cinder   12/6/2013   12-inch, A Library

Joe Talia is a drummer, percussionist and electro-acoustic performer based in Melbourne, Australia. James Rushford seems somewhat mysterious online, but I believe he’s from Australia as well. This is minimal, fog head inducing drones. Wind and ambient tones. A slow synth beat pops in for a second on A2, then fades into the shadows, only to reappear again. Lots of experimental, gloomy ghostly sounds. Dreary like a wet winter morning. Popping and clicking, like mic’d acoustics or wood crackling in a fire. The B side has some spooky, effected vocals, like an 80s monster-in-the-TV type of sound. This side has more going on and sort of has a B-movie horror feel towards the end. Don’t be alarmed of the “skipping” sound, it’s supposed to sound that way.
