The Saltburn-based project which goes under the moniker of Soiled/Marcus H delivers a sometimes discordant rather than ambient aural offering that would be at home as the soundtrack to an arts installation. A cacophony of influences are drawn in with each track. The experimental dissonance successfully creates a mental image as occasionally jarring loops compete for attention.

The resultant mixture is, at times, a tough listen. Perhaps this is an album for a dimly lit room that demands attention and refuses to follow a predicable route. The album represents a departure from the conventions of music into the production of a non-lyrical story. Having said that, with its sense of foreboding, it is ripe for synchronising with something visual.
