Death Of A StarMp3s & jpegs
Pinkman cast their net eastwards. The latest finding, Hungary's Norwell, offers up four genre splicing cuts. Rhythms are from the golden age of electro, cold and prototypical. Around these sharp percussion patterns swirl a wealth of melting synthlines. Pads, deep basslines and a ghosting presence characterise the title track, that same spectral mood weaves its way through the sweetened strings and distorted judders of "Dissonant Division." The frigid bars of "Nordic Nights" introduces the flip, arctic winds pierced by snapping snares. Emotional depth ebbs and flows as the rich and textured "Wasted Echoes" brings down the curtain on Norwell's Pinkman debut.
