Muffled electronic keyboard, distorted sounds, and morse code; M. Pluckett’s “Rust Water” is a four track vinyl, a slight detour from that of his previous project “Monocle Eye” which also has a home in the KFJC library. This album is mostly instrumental barring a few distorted voice samples from what sounds like a mish mash of media (shows, movies, commercials). It begins with “oneMorePush” and ends on “oneLastLaugh”, static-y and beep filled tracks reminiscent of a phone call from a fever dream, creating a fluid journey through all four tracks. It is noticeably more electronic than their first release, though “killWithSmiles” and “thinker” are on the grittier side. If you get lost listening to this, just remember to wiggle your big toe.
