Tar Feather "Folded Meals"
Portuguese artist Tar Feather (a.k.a. Diogo Tudela) bathes his peculiar productions in an amorphous muck, so much so that their rhythms can barely peek through the hanging fog. On "Folded Meals," a track taken from his forthcoming Heavy Metals LP (out on September 30 via Easy Pieces), Tudela crafts an uncanny mood by folding in swathes of analog pads above unsettling squeaks and clatter. Eventually, a coherent beat does emerge, and like the best moments from Actress' or Lukid's recent work, Tar Feather succeeds at integrating myth and mystery with his electronics.
