And thus a new Prefuse album was born. From the mind of the prolific Guillermo Scott Herren comes another superior exercise in beat physics, once again pushing himself out of the cocoon of the last album sessions, gorging and filtering all that’s new and blending that into his own individual timeline. It’s for tracks like this that the Oxford English Dictionary will soon come to include ‘prefusian’ in their mighty tome.
In this episode, Herren weaves an unrecognisable and somewhat wonky vocal into a multi-layered slice of midtempo sunshine – at just over 2.5 minutes, it’s the perfect soundtack for nipping quickly out to the shops to grab some suncream and a six-pack. Not so much a road trip, as a swift excursion.
The full-length record, the 29-track ‘Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian’, lands planetside on April 14 via Warp, flaunting track titles such as ‘Periodic Measurements of Infrequent Frowns’, ‘Gaslamp Killer Feedback Text’ and ‘Whipcream Eyepatch’. In the words of the great Stan Lee, ’nuff said.
