Various Artists Switches
- Words: Tyra Bangs
- Label: Audiobulb
If you made a daisy chain out of the bedroom producers currently making Plaid-and Boards of Canada-influenced IDM, it would stretch around the earth 12 times. Switches curates 14 such unsung heroes into a quiet exhibition that will perfectly suit fans of tonal sculpture and melancholic clicks 'n' cuts. Switches doesn't quite equal the genius of, say, Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works Part 2, but among picaresque tracks from New York's Build, Wisconsin's He Can Jog and London's OTI, there may be a future star in the making.
