OK. There is a lot of laptop music out there. Some people want to debate the "music" thing w/ me but let's just go with it. It is really easy to sit in yr room and make some sound these days. I think this is a good thing (in general). But it means you have to swim to find the more fascinating parts of the sea (to go with the blog's metaphor). I had forgot about this release for a little while, by the Canadian Polmo Polpo (nom de Sandro Perri). The breathing image paces the album and is rendered in fine layers of hiss and noise, with long, pulsing tracks divided by shorter ambient moments. Very dancey, funky and moody. A brilliant mix of materials takes precedent over DSP, leaving a more timeless piece of modern techno. Fragments of guitar and voice appear through the haze. This is the only record of his I have heard, and the only one that has crossed my path.
