Pimmon Smudges Another Yesterday
In the early '00s, Sydney's Paul Gough (a.k.a. Pimmon proudly broke the bones of pop tunes and left them as mangled paperclip sculptures that embodied the fearlessness and merciless self-indulgence of glitch-techno. He matures a bit on Smudges Another Yesterday. Opener "Come Join the Choir Invisible" unfolds waves of choir-synth harmonies that glide through ecstasy and dread, while the mesmerizing "Hidden" recalls Tim Hecker's best fever dreams as Gough elegantly smothers a bellowing, low drone in thick layers of sandblasted organ melodies. However, Gough's knack for racket remains, as he builds feedback squeals and squawks to no payoff on "Dervieux" and drains great emotion out of murky guitar tones on "Some Days Are Tones." Growing pains, indeed.
