V/A – 2010 Hands

“2010 Hands” follows suit from previous instalments in this compilation series, presenting material by a variety of artists, from relative newcomers to label staples along with material by lesser-known side projects. In the end, most of the contents of this compilation should come across as fairly familiar to those used to the musical aesthetics of Hands Productions. Nevertheless, there are a few surprises which make it worth checking out.

Philipp Münch – Into the Absurd

An album where you can hear all the things Philipp Münch has ever done, but in a very different perspective than what might be expected from him. Granted the sound may seem a bit dated from time to time, but it’s all in a good way – when you play some old Throbbing Gristle or Cabaret Voltaire you won’t complain about older drum machines. So it’s enough to say that ‘dated’ is not the word; this is called ‘vintage’.

synnack – v2.5

“v2.5” can be a very tough nut to crack as one of those albums that, upon first listen, one immediately knows is excellent but can’t really explain why. On occasion, listening it almost feels like tuning an FM receiver in the middle of the night: even if revisiting ‘familiar’ areas of the FM spectrum you never know what you will find or how it will shift.
