Perhaps not my usual tipple but when did tiresome, endless labelling get in the way of what is more importantly good music. Three tracks go to make up this new release from the London MNKY HSE Music Director but it’s the blistering combination of infectious sounds that inform Stilgar which really capture and ignite my attention. Music to get lost in as seven plus minutes feel longer (in a good way) with a sizzling clash of ideas all at once being totally emotional and melodic, yet also hard and unrelenting. So good in fact that immediately repeating the play only goes to reveal more. The proceeding Alia continues the theme with reiterating rhythms again building a sense of anticipation via unfolding atmosphere’s reaching out to eight minutes.
