|september 2010 release ; pretty neat, out-there collection of tune-smithing from tiger hatchery’s ben billington, chartering a vessel forged of synthesized drizzle, amontillado-an thump (listen to the sound-sample for ... that), and at least one hollow “minimal synth” banger ...|

"madison lakes" c28
the new project everyone should be most excited about. ben billington (tiger hatchery, druids of huge etc.) goes solo and lays down the most unique yet logical scattering of sounds i've heard in a while. analog synth, percussion, synth that sounds like percussion, percussion that sounds like synth (??????), blended into a fine powder and sprinkled onto an endless plain of 90's capri sun-style mercury slime.
the whole recording is sprinkled with tiny pinpricks and nuances of the aforementioned synth / percussion / ??????? that craft a completely fresh, insanely addictive sound-zone that sounds like every raindrop in the sky solidifying and turning into solid gold. the whole tape culminates with (easily) jam of the year, "realization", full of warm, "insightful" sounding synths and perfectly placed popol vuh-style cymbal crashes. i can't help but feel like this is the music for now, it just feels right. somebody needs to do an lp for this guy asap. weird full-color covers and painted labels in a "get the word out"
edition of 100!
