Various Artists Cottage Industries 3: Vestibule & Separate
- Words: Brion Paul
- Label: Neo Ouija
Metamatics main man Lee Norris is startlingly prolific when it comes to making pixilated Pantone neo-electronica and showcasing like-minded artists on his Cottage Industries compilation series. The third installment meets with mixed results as an array of new names stretch the IDM genre into sappy New Age territory-some adding strummed guitars, some merely existing. Unsurprisingly, the highlights belong to the marquee names: Apparat turns in a stunning contribution with vocalist Marit Post; Greg Davis offers intricate folk guitar, and Maps and Diagrams deliver by-the-book yummy electro noodle. Mmm, very industrious.
