Reliably informed

This enthralling taster of the Sunderland-based electronic musician Matthew Jameson’s upcoming Mercy of Memory LP is a swelling sea of sound, with oscillating pads and twisting melodies weaving in and out of one another over the span of a sprawling eleven minutes. Upon a bedrock of ambient hiss, Jameson carefully crafts a soundscape of white noise, modal leads and melodic phrases which gradually wash over each other to create a vivid abstract portrait of sound, before collapsing into a Disintegration Loops-esque coda in which they all gradually dissolve and deteriorate into distorted dust.

Throughout the duration of the track, Jameson’s deft command of tension and release coalesce to form an engrossing and refreshing experience in electronic sound.
