A debut of sorts and a comeback in other ways, as a mysterious Finnish artist called (for the purposes of this release) Please Annihilate Oulu gives us two starkly contrasting tracks.
To start things off right, “Copyplate” is a truly virtuoso piece of freejazz vs. drill+bass vs. whoknows, and is quite unlike anything out there right now. Don’t worship the glitch, worship the crazy itch. On the other hand, “Lissabon”, from a couple of years back, is a calmly authoritative piece of tick-tock, stringflecked melancholia. Blissful.
Who is he? Those who remember the Amiga demo-scene will know him well. He’d prefer to be known for here+now, tho, so let’s just say – Rebels, Virtual Dreams, CNCD, we’d love to ‘meet+greet’ him – oh, you know the score.
