Aris Kindt is the joint collaboration of Gabe Hedrick and Francis Harris (Scissor and Thread) and this new release provides the follow-up to 2015’s Floods, while also launching the heightened potential of the Kingdoms imprint. It’s not always an easy ride but since when has ‘not-challenging’ been to the benefit of music’s history. However, there are plenty of moments of transcendence to be found but the spectre of tension never seems hidden, often revealed through the grainy repetition of smouldering analogue electronics. This collection of sounds isn’t really something you can qualify by describing each and every piece involved on its track-list but it’s more about the smudge of stereo which emanates as a whole structure that’s important here. That and the feeling that something wonderful is being communicated, just below the surface.
