Isan Plans Drawn In Pencil
- Words: Robbie Mackey
- Label: Morr Music
Antony Ryan and Robin Saville are patient folk. Over the course of their 15-year, seven-album career, the long-distance production duo has perfected a brand of simple, sad, slow-going pop. Like most of the Morr Music crowd, Isan's songs take time, doggedly emerging rather than flying out of the gates. On "Plans Drawn in Pencil," Ryan and Saville rely on familiar analog synths and mostly drumless beats. As a result, the record can sound a bit dated and unimaginative at times, but few folks in the IDM world have such a knack for making small sound this big.
