Intricate In Pectra
- Words: Brock Phillips
- Label: Spezial Material
From the ominous synth tones that open In Pectra to the stunted and splintered beat structures that are the album's hallmark, Intricate wear their musical influences on their sleeves. Witness the loping stride of a Prefuse 73 rhythm here, a monochromatic Autechre melody there-this isn't the sort of album that single-handedly carves out an entirely new genre, but it is one of the more sturdily-constructed experimental electronic full-lengths as of late. Unlike many of their contemporaries, Intricate have clearly mastered their machines without becoming slaves to software in the process-tracks such as "Squirl" and "Efforts" could easily hold their own against vintage Artificial Intelligence-era IDM.
