LONG PLAYER OF THE DAY: Roly Porter, ‘Aftertime’

The Artist/Album: Roly Porter, Aftertime (Subtext, 2011)

The Reason(s) We Can’t Stop Listening: Anyone wondering why Roly Porter and Jamie Teasdale stopped working together as Vex’d simply needs to host back-to-back listening sessions of the former’s solo debut and the latter’s saturated Blade Runner beats under his new Kuedo guise. As stirring as some of Porter’s synthetic strings are, most of his rusty sound collages imagine a soot-soaked world that’s on the brink of collapse. Dire and deep, this one.
