(New Album Review) Paul Hares- MSC DTH
The Big Ear Tapes family continue to outdo themselves in putting out weird beauty from the experimental deep end of progressive pc music with MSC DTH by the Balakovo-based producer Paul Hares.
MSC DTH is a mystic, free-flowing collage of samples and hip-hop beats warped in a musty echo chamber– releases like this really highlight the limitations of the arbitrary label “vaporwave”. The weirdly writhing lo-fi textures here will indeed be familiar to fans of Daniel Lopatin’s Eccojams, Vol. 1 and everything in its wake, but Hares has obviously gone much further into abstract zones. The raw but effulgent textures of MSC DTH flow from tape-manipulation-eruptions to meditative drones with a beguiling dream-logic. You won’t want to miss this one– it just might be destined for classic status down the road.
